Description

Carole Seddon hates Christmas - it all seems rather a waste of time. So when her neighbour and best friend, Jude, drags her along to go shopping at a local store called Gallimaufry, she can feel her inner-Scrooge knocking. But the sales are on, and even Carole can't resist a bargain.

Reviewed on 1st June 2024

A quick return to Fethering was really relaxing, and I raced through this mystery in two days - it was just what I was looking for in a book.

It’s Christmas, and Carole is really trying to join in and make it more enjoyable than her usual lack of festivities, but really she’s motivated most by trying to solve yet another local murder.

I really enjoy these characters and their little world. We got a few reminders pop in of previous adventures and friends, but mostly this is a new story with new suspects and a new plot.

I’m not entirely sure I understood the conclusion, but I don’t think that mattered too much, as the journey was what was important to me.
