‘Murder at Mistletoe Manor’ by Holly Tierney-Bedord

Murder at Mistletoe Manor

Innkeeper Klarinda Snow gets confused when a bunch of guests turn up bearing mysterious invitations for an all-expenses-paid night at Mistletoe Manor. Following an anonymous delivery of cash to pay for the rooms, the situation doesn’t get any less opaque when Klarinda realises most of the guests seem to know each other. When a series of bizarre accidents starts happening, Ms Snow starts to put two and two together.

I got the audiobook of this cosy mystery, which is entertainingly narrated by Christopher Lane. The author tells a witty and amusing tale with her cast of mostly annoying characters and though the plot is a teeny bit obvious and features a group of moronic police officers who probably couldn’t find their own backsides with both hands, I really enjoyed the story. Also, in true Agatha Christie mode, Ms Tierney-Bedord provides a floor plan of Mistletoe Manor on her website. Which is nice.

    I do like Agatha Christie, Colin. An appealing sounding read.

      Thanks Robbie. I’m always struck by the difference between audio books and their paperback counterparts. A narrator can bring a real sense of entertainment to a story that doesn’t always come over when reading it ourselves.
