"The Red House Mystery" by A. A. Milne is a good 'locked-room' mystery, of sorts. The sleuth is very much an amateur with a side-kick. The victim is a stranger, of sorts. The suspect has gone missing. The location: a country home. The village: quaint. The police: practically non-existent. And the whole thing is fairly light-hearted. And, yet well-plotted with good characters and decent dialogue. Fun mystery.

What a delightful surprise to find a gentle English mystery with all the whimsy and prose of Winne the Pooh!

A. A. Milne wanted to write the perfect mystery- and he did- but he forgot to make it relatable. The main character has an idetic memory and figures things out lickety split, but he takes his time explaining his genius to his sidekick (and the reader). The mystery itself is good, but there is no character development and I never felt connected to them.
