Rest You Merry by Charlotte MacLeod

Rest You Merry - Charlotte MacLeod

Series: Peter Shandy #1

 

Professor Shandy goes away for a few days over Christmas after staging a ghastly Christmas light display at his house in order to get back at everyone nagging at him for not participating in the illumination display only to find a dead body in his house on his return. The characters were amusing but overall I found them to be just a bit much so I didn't like this as much as the other mystery I read by Charlotte MacLeod.

 

The book does give me a chance to play a Holiday Book Joker card for square 13 for Christmas, however.
