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!
