About this deal

Margery and Clementine are dinner ladies, or to give them their official title 'Education Centre Nourishment Consultants' (really? This sounded like a promising cozy mystery involving two older schools dinner ladies solving the murder of their manager but it didn't turn out to be quite as much fun as I thought it would be. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).

I would say the beginning of the book was a bit slow to get going for me, it got better just over halfway but on the whole a good read and I would recommend it. There's a reason We Are Legion was named Audible's Best Science Fiction Book of 2016: Its irresistibly irreverent wit!

Clementine, the more determined and dramatic of the pairing, is convinced that there’s more to it than that and encourages Margery to help her in trying to work out the truth of Caroline’s death. This is, in my humble opinion, a very successful debut and definitely a series that I am looking forward to keeping up with.Bringing their own unique and counter-balanced personalities to proceedings they ask questions such as: what is happiness? She is, in my opinion, an emotionally abusive partner and a deeply unpleasant person to spend your reading time with. If they somehow chose to stop being dinner ladies and start up a detective agency instead, I think it would be great. As the residents turn to the duo with suspicion and begin to freeze them out, Margery and Clementine are left with more questions than answers. Mrs Smith, the Head of Drama, is the prime suspect and is desperate for the Dinner Lady Detectives to clear her name.

For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare--poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal.Although, obviously, it is unlikely that the police would fail to investigate, I was happy enough to gloss over the faults. I think someone needs to snap this up and make a television series - I can so see Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders as Margery and Clem, in fact, that's who I was seeing in my head as I was reading it!

The writing at points is unbearable, I genuinely cannot tell if the author is being satirical or not. All my life I lived with my grandmother until her passing a year ago, and I was raised on a steady diet of Miss Marple, Murder She Wrote, and Rosemary and Thyme. Closer 'The plot is great, the character cast is spot on, and the dialogue and humor is so quick, smart, and addictive. Being with your partner may feel like rainbows and unicorns, but that doesn't mean you have a healthy, functioning relationship.

The author putting clues was kind of common for a detective-murder story which even anybody would guess easily.
