We received a copy of Death on the Nile to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
I love Agatha Chrisitie so I was thrilled when they started making some of my favorite books by her into movies. Murder on the Orient Express is also great, so if you haven’t seen that, check it out as well! Death on the Nile has a couple of the same cast members as the last movie, but a completely different story line. They did good adapting it from the book and you will be caught up into a world of intrigue, murder, and romance!
