  • Highly Entertaining

    Murder Most Festive by Ada Moncrieff is a wonderful, historical murder mystery set in 1938 with WW2 looming. Based in a large country manor in Sussex with a houseful of suspects, it centres around Hugh Gaveston, a dogged and determined amateur sleuth who is investigating a killing. On Christmas morning David Campbell-Scott has been found lying in the fresh snow, his crimson blood staining the sparkling whiteness all around him. As the plot ticks off all the suspects, offering different motives and opportunities from a range of likelihoods, the case unveils betrayal and fraud. With occasional touches of humour, this is a compelling and engaging Christmas historical crime novel that I enjoyed immensely. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Random House Vintage via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Disappointed

    Drawn out and unengaging. Must be an old book. I could have written it

  • RATHER FULL OF CLICHES

    I was looking forward to reading this as a Christmas treat but was rather disappointing. The characters were stereotypical British murder susoects and very two-dimensional in their depiction. Careful editing would have removed anachronisms: wearing pyjamas down to breakfast on Christmas morning jarred particularly badly. The means of deduction was laboured through most of the book and then rushed in the final chapters. The only reason that I couldn't put this book down was because I wanted to move on to something better.

    Thanks for your feedback!
