Never read any, any recommendations?

The Body in the Library and The Murder at the Vicarage are the ones which establish Miss Marple' s character and methods.

Thanks smile After the set up, is there any need to read the others chronologically? Are there any particular later ones that are classics?

No. Just read through them as you find them. Bertram's Hotel and Nemesis are the last novels, though there was an earlier book published later. There are also the short story collection. But no particular need for chronology.

It's a little different with Poirot, start with Mysterious Affair at Styles and then just watch out for his first retirement, Roger Ackroyd, and the return. But as Aggie didn't get that time line right, even that doesn't really matter

There are some good short story collections too. Lots of good stuff ahead!
