Title: Twelve Clues of Christmas

Author: Rhys Bowen

 She may be thirty-fifth in line for the
throne, but Lady Georgiana Rannoch cannot wait to ring in the New
Year—before a Christmas killer wrings another neck…

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me—well, actually, my true love, Darcy O’Mara, is spending a feliz navidad
tramping around South America. Meanwhile Mummy is holed up in a tiny
village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And
I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and
sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.
So it’s a miracle when I
contrive to land a position as hostess to a posh holiday party in
Tiddleton. The village is like something out of A Christmas Carol!
But no sooner have I arrived than a neighborhood nuisance, a fellow
named Freddie, falls out of a tree dead.  On my second day, another
so-called accident results in a death – and there’s yet another on my
third.  Perhaps a recent prison break could have something to do with
it…that, or a long-standing witch’s curse. But after Darcy shows up
beneath the mistletoe, anything could be possible in this wicked

Includes an English Christmas companion, full of holiday recipes, games, and more!
