I enjoy getting lost in a good book and have since I was a child. Audio books enable me to read and keep active and productive. I am the oldest of 6 kids and have 18 nieces and nephews.

    Tom Christmas came to picturesque Thornford Regis with his young daughter to escape the terrible experience of losing his wife in the city. Her murder sent him packing to the bucolic and charming town, where violent crime isn't supposed to happen and the greatest sin is supposed to be nothing a member of the clergy can't handle. Then, at the town fair, a woman is found murdered. Tom soon learnsthat everyone in Thornford Regis has a secret to hide - infidelity, theft, even past murders. Twelve Drummers Drumming showcases a lovely place to live and/or die....

    Story

    It was a bit long and a lot of internal monologue by Father Christmas. I am Catholic so found some of the attitude of the Anglican priest disturbing especially confession and the sex life of a priest. I really didn't need to hear the thoughts of a priest lusting for women. I also found it almost comical at how easily life is for a priest to marry a Jewish woman and now raise a Jewish girl. Real life is not that simple.
