あらすじ・解説

An English Christmas has mince pies, cheerful carols, a twinkling tree…and a murder? Thank goodness Lady Swift is on the scene!

Winter, 1920. Amateur sleuth Lady Eleanor Swift is feeling festive. She is playing host to the entire village at Henley Hall for gifts, games, and gingerbread. She’s also purchased perfect presents for each of her household - not forgetting the biggest bone in the butcher’s shop for her partner in crime, Gladstone the bulldog - and is looking forward to celebrating her first English country Christmas.

As snowflakes fall, Eleanor is cheering on contestants in the traditional Christmas fun run in the grounds of the hall. But tragedy strikes when one of the runners drops dead at the finish line. Dashing Detective Seldon is convinced it’s just a heart attack, but Eleanor isn’t so sure. When she finds a rather distinctive key where the man fell, Eleanor knows she’ll never rest until she finds out the truth about what happened in her own home.

Next the vicar is taken ill with what looks like poison, and Eleanor starts to wonder if the two cases are linked. When someone tries to frame her by planting poisoned berries in her own kitchen, she knows speed is of the essence. But the entire village was at Henley Hall for the festivities, and Eleanor has enough suspects to stuff a town full of turkeys. Can she nail the true killer and clear her name in time for Christmas?

Christmas won’t be complete without it! A festive treat for fans of Agatha Christie, TE Kinsey, and Lee Strauss.

murder in the snow

I really enjoyed the Murder in the snow. I was picking up clues right along with Eleanor and enjoy the tension between the characters.

An exceptional Story and Narration

With the authors lovable main characters, and the character development of the rest, this series is a big hit. Major cudos to Karen Cass for her exceptional Narration. Her acting and voice talent added to a great story makes this a must listen to. Most enjoyable.

Simply the best

(Another) wonderful story from Verity Bright. A superb and delightful cast of characters, setting and fascinating plot. And the reader is simply the best I have had the pleasure of encountering in the entire “cozy mystery” genre. I’m afraid it must be love - I still smile every time she manages to place a “u” in the word body - “B-u-o-d-y”. How very, very English, how very, very nice.

Pleasantly engaging

This a completely charming excursion into not only village crime but also village life. The setting of the book is authentic and the cast of characters completely charming and believable. Offset against the murder is the warmth and affection felt by the characters for each other and, gracious me, a feast of good food,
Ideal for those are charmed by the cover design and want to be diverted from the current challenging situation.

Cosy murder mysteries are not for me

A weak and easily solved mystery with somewhat likeable characters. Harmless fun that will not tax the brain. Narration though very weak . I think I could have done better.
