Reviewed by  Laura Hinds

As the Christmas season arrives, the Pennyfoot Hotel is lavishly decorated with evergreens, ribbons, and bows, and a magnificent Christmas tree delights guests as they arrive. Wonderful aromas waft through the air as holiday baking has begun in the kitchen.

Cecily Sinclair Baxter and her husband own the hotel, and Cecily is thrilled that they can live in the hotel and run their business. Certain that troubles of holidays past will remain there, they plan for a joyful time. The Christmas Curse wouldn’t strike again. Or would it?

Indeed, the curse has struck again. A body found in the laundry room is that of Lord Percival Farthingale. He is a victim of murder. Cecily realizes that with the rather inept PC Northcott on the case, she will have to step in and find the killer if the holiday season is to be saved.

It has been six years since the last Pennyfoot Holiday Mystery. I was so excited to find a new release! The Pennyfoot Hotel Mysteries are a favorite of mine, and the Pennyfoot Holiday Mysteries are the icing on the cake.

Time has not diminished the skills of Kate Kingsbury as she bring her characters to life with as much charm and individuality as always. The murder mystery is intriguing and the Edwardian time, and special hotel all work to bring together a story that a reader can get lost in as you step away from modern-day turmoil for a spell.

Thank you to Kate Kingsbury for an early holiday gift to your readers! What a wonderful surprise this is after six years!
