    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.

    Tragedy strikes on the opening night of the Fall Crafters Fair when a woman is killed in the parking lot of Daisy's Quilt Shop and the only material witness is one of Melinda Byer's boys. The investigation takes a more bizarre turn when detective Shane Black becomes convinced the killer was actually after Callie. This time it's a madman loose in the largest crowd of the year, and he's looking for something or someone. If they can't figure out what - or who - one of Deborah and Callie's close circle of friends may be next.

    Interesting story. I enjoyed that so many characters were involved and we got to see them interact.

    When adoptee Lucille Jones comes to town researching her roots, Betsy Devonshire notices that she bears a remarkable resemblance to local Jan Henderson. Betsy introduces the look-alikes and they quickly hit it off. But then Jan's wealthy great-aunt is found dead, helped to her grave by a stiff metal wire --a double-zero knitting needle, in fact. Just like the kind Jan knits with.

    Story

    I missed the regulars in this story -- more Betsy, Jill, Lars, etc
    also, this was the first narrated by Connie Crawford but I really didn't like her. Susan Boyce did a much better job.

    Snow is not the only thing falling this December - spirits are, too. That's because this year's needlework convention in Nashville is tragically interrupted when Milwaukee shop owner Belle Hammermill tumbles nine stories to her untimely death. At first, Betsy Devonshire thinks the fall was just an unfortunate accident. The trouble is, Belle's unsavory reputation causes suspicions to flare. She has plenty of enemies with more than enough motive.

    Would you listen to Crewel Yule again? Why?

    It was a cute story but I rarely listen to a book a second time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The hotel manager whose name I forgot. She was a whoot.


    Have you listened to any of Melissa Hughes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Melissa Hughes performance was excellent. Here reading was so much better than Susan Boyce whose reading is very robotic and grating.
