I'm a big goob because I've read probably 20+ Agatha Christie's. They're good light reading. Mostly I read them a few years back so they're kind of a blur to me, but most were good.
There was one called 10 Red Herrings I think that was perhaps the best. Or maybe it was 10 little Indians or maybe those were separate books. Death on the Nile was good. Caribbean Mystery was ok.
You can probably pick up a dozen of them in a used book store for a buck or two each.

'Ten Little Indians' and I agree, best book. And one of the few where the murderer doesn't turn out to be a character we've never heard of nor seen before. I HATE when she did that.

I think you mean Ten Little Niggers

I was confusing 10 Little Indians (good book by Agatha Christie) with 10 Red Herrings (or 9 or 12 or some number) by Jeffrey Archer - a good mystery-themed short story collection.

I always liked the stories featuring Hercule Poirot over the Mrs. Marple ones. They are pretty light reading but enjoyable in their own right.
