    I found the character of Meredith to be uninviting. She got her back up whenever a man tried to talk to her; when her niece came by for a chat, she basically blew her off. It was almost too easy to figure out that one of the characters did not die the way it was said they did and from that it was easy to conclude a lot of the rest of the story prior to its conclusion. And unless it was on a page I skipped (due to boredom) it was never really clear exactly what Meredith's consulate job was. Just said that she moved around a lot for it. And just like everything else in her life, it was something she didn't really seem fond of. I would probably go ahead and read more of this series but with the main character being so unlikeable, I won't be in a hurry.

    Say It With Poison is the first book in the Mitchell and Markby series. Meredith Mitchell works as a British Consular in various countries for England. She receives a wedding invitation from her Godchild Sara. Sara's mother is Eve Owen who is Meredith's cousin. Meredith returns to the Cotswold Village of Westerfield for the wedding. Upon arrival she finds a threatening message and ox's heart on the gate to the house aimed at Sara. Soon murder comes to the village. Meredith meets Chief Inspector Alan Markby and the two embark on their separate investigations. Alan Markby is also in the wedding as he is giving the bride away.If you like English village cozy mysteries with interesting characters, a great location and an original well plotted mystery, you will like Say It With Poison. The mystery was complex enough that I didn't have it solved until the end. I am going to continue with this series. Since Meredith lives outside England, I wonder now how she and Markby will continue the relationship that is just barely starting. The next book Season for Murder should answer that question.

    This first in the Mitchell & Markby series holds quite a bit of promise. It is certainly a modern version of the English village mystery. Ms. Granger writes a book with a tight plot and believable characters. We discover that Meredith Mitchell is a diplomatic worker who has come home to England for the wedding of her god-daughter who is also a cousin. She visits a poky little English village, and discovers that a whole lot of evil is going on behind the scenes. It results in a murder, and Meredith is thrown in with the local Police Inspector. She finds herself helping him with solving the puzzle, much to Markby's chagrin. The play between these two characters is interesting to watch, and I am looking forward to reading more in this series.

    An excellent start to an excellent series. I've read them all and wish there were more.

    Does the author want us to empathize with the heroine,because I found it difficult to do so.I enjoyed the story and thought that Granger evolved a good plot with a good style of writing but the character of Meredith is irritating and unconvincing.She comments on the rudeness of others while being extremely uncivil herself,perhaps this was subtlety and it went over my head but at least the Agatha Raisin character created by Beaton has the excuse of being dragged up in the Birmingham slums,we are expected to believe that Meredith is a diplomat,well,I would not want her fighting my corner in a dispute.She protects her own privacy fiercely yet goes barging unbidden into the lives of others on the pretext of solving a crime,by what authority does she think anyone should answer her questions,particularly as she is so dismissive of nearly everyone;she seems grumpy and snappy like those women who assist Jonathon Creek,in real life,someone would have put her straight.We are told that she has not seen either her cousin or her god-daughter for years,so it is stretching my credulity to expect me to accept that the girl would confide in her almost from the first at their re-union especially as she is aloof,distant and unsympathetic,no woman would seek her confidence,let alone a vulnerable girl.

    A very good combination of a love story between a foreign service consul who has been posted home, and her love for a CID inspector whose job she hates. Lots of British background, interesting murders. A good read. My library didn;t have the first volumn, so I bought it. After I read it, I donated it to the library so that others will be able to know what happened at the beginning.
