Mavis Doriel Hay: The Santa Klaus Murder

16 Tasks of the Festive Season: Square 13 – Christmas

All the Right Feels


Of all of my Christmas reads this year to date, I can’t think of a more fitting candidate for the Christmas holiday book bonus joker.  This is a nicely plotted Golden Age country house holiday party mystery, with decidedly more likeable than non-likeable characters, a light enough touch to make the non-likeable characters gentle satires rather than gratingly annoying or rough-hewn bores, all the Christmas feels (which are maintained until the very end), decent enough writing … and, I mean, seriously, can you beat that title?  Call me sentimental, but I did enjoy this enormously.
