Publisher's Summary

A game of charades ends in coldblooded murder in this entertaining cozy mystery - third in the Crime with the Classics series.

Having finished transforming Windy Corner, the grand Victorian mansion she inherited from her great aunt, into a writers’ retreat, widowed literature professor Emily Cavanaugh is ready to receive her first set of guests. But her careful planning is thrown into disarray by the unexpected arrival of outrageous true-crime writer, Cruella Crime, whose unpardonably rude behavior is causing great offence.

As a ferocious ice storm rages outside, the guests entertain one another with a game of charades. But their revelries are brought to a sudden halt by the discovery of a body in one of the guest bedrooms. When it transpires the victim was poisoned, Emily decides to take a leaf out of the book of her favorite detective writer, Agatha Christie, and investigate. But as she pursues her inquiries, it becomes chillingly clear that she herself may have been the intended victim …

Sickeningly Sweet Mystery

Although I enjoyed this book, I also found it annoying. Emily's character is unrealistic and too sentimental. The plot is interesting, but, I wish Emily was more realistic. Caroline Shaffer is great narrator and got me through it to the end. I'm not sure if I can stomach the next book.
