    You read my all time fave, The Secret Life of Bees! Such a sweet story. How was the Orient Express? You’re amazing!

      I loved it. I’m glad I finally read it. Murder On the Orient Express is a classic murder mystery. Definitely a must read. I still need to watch the movie to see how it compares.
