To avoid Christmas
in Scotland with her brother's family, Lady Georgiana (35th
in line to the British throne) applies for a paid job in the
quiet English countryside. Her trusty maid Queenie accompanies
her. As luck would have it Georgina's mother is staying with
popular writer (Noel Coward) in the same area, and even better,
her grandfather (retired policeman) shows up. It's a family
affair that will leave you smiling.
To the tune of "The 12 Days of Christmas"
multiple deaths occur - one after another. Georgina and her
grandfather wonder if it's too many accidents or murder. Could
there be a serial killer among them? Good thing they have
suspicious, not to mention nosy, natures. The two take to
snooping around and stirring up gossip. What does look bad
for Georgina and her family is the lack of deaths in the village
until they arrived.
Twelve Clues of Christmas gives readers
a witty protagonist, cleverly placed clues, a picturesque
English countryside and plenty of Christmas entertainment.
Readers will find the combination of visitors and village
secrets (that are not so secret) make for some impressive
personal side Georgina and Darcy come to somewhat of an understanding
but maybe not enough to satisfy us readers. Also the ending
may surprise readers as well
Is it really a new start
for Georgina or merely a set up for the next mystery?
