Kellgren! Her narration makes the characters come alive. Her mastery of accents is unbelievable. The book is worth it just to marvel at her performance, But there's a book here as well... And it's a very good one. A fun Christmas whodunit, without any feeling of predictability. Well done Bowen. But let's face it - the real star of this book is Katherine Kellgren.
I enjoyed my hours listening to this well narrated and amusing mystery. Once again Georgie's romance kindled in the background while people dropped dead left and right. I'm going to download the next in the series.

Fun. Festive. Clever.
While not the best murder mystery I've ever read, this book was really fun and great to take in just before Christmas. The plot, the mystery, the reveal are all clever; though, perhaps a little too broadcasted. The characters are all delightful, and the numerous holiday traditions add to the overall enjoyable story.
in this book you will find clues and adventure all wrapped around the Christmas holidays and has to do with the 12 days of Christmas song! I found this book very entertaining and kept my interest! My two favorite characters in this book are Darcy and Queenie ! This is a great read for a cold wintry night to listen to by the fire! I thoroughly enjoy the series!
Loved the story. For fans of Her Royal Spyness Series this book is more of a romance than murder mystery despite the murders. I was happy to see Georgie & Darcy spend more time together as a regular couple. Also, I was delighted to see their relationship advance.
I adored the descriptions of old English Christmas. All the activities sound like quite a bit of fun. I discovered their are country homes in the UK where such festivities are hosted - without the bodies.
Georgie was the first to determine the accidents were murders & it took them a while to put the mystery together. Georgie & Darcy worked well together on the mystery. I'd like to see more of them working together on mysteries.
Whenever Georgie & Darcy get married I hope that book will be similar to this one; lots of romance with just a bit of mystery. Hopefully, their wedding won't be too many books away.
I would also like to see them at Sir Hubert's estate since he knows both of them. And of course, Darcy needs to take her to Ireland.
This is the second book in this series I have read and enjoyed both of them. Narration is good and the mystery keeps a reader thinking throughout.
