Publisher's Summary

Seething resentments, well-kept family secrets, and a savage murder set the stage for Christmas in Cornwall in this cozy holiday installment of the Daisy Dalrymple mysteries.

In December 1923, the formidable Dowager Viscountess Dalrymple has decided that for Christmas the family will all gather at Brockdene in Cornwall at the invitation of Lord Westmoor. Her daughter - Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher - is somewhat less than pleased but yields to the demands of her mother, especially as she'll be there just before the holidays working on another article for Town and Country about the estate itself. But the family gathering quickly goes awry.

Brockdene, it seems, is occupied only by the Norvilles - poor relations of Lord Westmoor - and Westmoor himself won't be joining them. So Daisy; her husband, Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard; and their family must spend their Christmas holiday trapped in an ancestral estate with a rich history of lore, ghost stories, and rumors of hidden treasure and secret passageways with a family seething with resentments, grudges, and a faintly scandalous history.

The veneer of civility that pervades the halls of Brockdene, however, begins to wear thin when long-held family secrets threaten to bubble over, and one of the Christmas guests is found savagely murdered. With few clues as to who committed the murder, and with too many motives as to why, it is once again up to Daisy to sort out the truth that lies beneath a generation of poisonous secrets.

    "More of something from the 1920's"
    Would you listen to Mistletoe and Murder again? Why?

    I like the series. It is an easy listening mistery. Actually I enjoy it more than Agathy Christy.

    "Familiar Plot"

    Although this is a familiar plot from another mystery, I'll say that it's better handled here. The characters are well sketched, and the Christmas theme is not over done. A very entertaining read in a lively series!

    "Voice was annoying"

    I am afraid I found Lucy Rayner's voice annoying when it came to the narration of the story ( not the when the characters are speaking ) as I felt that the voice inflection was in the wrong places .The story was not very engaging either so I could not wait until it was over as I have to listen till the end in case it get better ( which it never did ) . So I will give all the other Daisy Dalrymple stories a miss and go back to Agatha Christie's Miss Marple which I enjoy immensely.

    "Brilliant"
    Where does Mistletoe and Murder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high.


    Any additional comments?

    I have this book on my Kindle, but had actually forgotten who dunit, nothing new there then! A thoroughly enjoyable book in the usual Carola Dunn style.

    My only complaint is............ why did Lucy Rayner narrate the other books in the series? I hope to hear more from this lady in the future.
