Grandmama arrives on a holiday visit to the home of Charlotte's parents, where a fellow guest--an outcast from her own family--is subsequently murdered. Like the heroes before her in Anne Perry's Christmas novels, Grandmama is called upon to play the role of amateur detective.

Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
Another great murder mystery by Anne Perry . . . set in a castle in England at Christmas . . . among family members who really can't stand one another . . . love the English accent . . . love the twists and turns in the story . . . enjoyed every minute
It is a great breakout story from the usual inspector Pitt series. The despicable grandmother has a chance to become known to the reader. She has a chance to show her metal as an investigator and maybe Charlotte isn't the only one in the family with a brain. It is a great listen especially if you know Pitt but stands quite on its own, too.
I liked it because it gave me a chance to know another member of the "Pitt" family.
Yes, I liked it a lot
Could be an introduction to the series.
The most fascinating aspect of this book was the inspiring transformation of the heretofore least sympathetic character among the Pitt family relatives, Mariah Ellison, into someone with courage, curiosity, and compassion for herself as well as others.
Great series book. Terrence Harriman is an excellent narrator who gives each character a personality that is quite easy to imagine.
