Frog in the Throat by E.X. Ferrars
Virginia Freer is enjoying a brief holiday at the cottage of old friends Helen and Andrew when her estranged husband Felix comes knocking at the door. Painful memories turn up with the irrepressible Mr. Freer - as does his penchant for prevarication, petty theft and amateur sleuthing. Virginia is suspicious of Felix's sudden appearance. But she never suspects his lighthearted snooping into the secret sins of a pair of literary sisters, a wealthy widow, a popular poet and a love-struck bachelor will turn so deadly serious...until murder gives Virginia and Felix a FROG IN THE THROAT.
Excellent who dunnit! I especially enjoyed the relationship between Virginia and Felix. You find yourself liking him and rooting for him. A good look into relationships and what we 'see' in people and what lies beneath!
