Musing Mondays June 10, 2013

MusingMondays5Musing Mondays ( asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits. • 
Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
 • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
 •Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
 • Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I just finished The Twelve Clues of Christmas by Rhys Bowen.  This is the 6th book in the Lady Georgiana mystery series.  For any of you who are not familiar with the series Lady Georgiana Rannoch is 35th in line for the British Throne.  The series is set in the mid-1930's and has both historical and fictional characters.  

This time Lady Georgiana wants to get away from Castle Rannoch at Christmas.  She answers an ad for Christmas Party Hostess in Tiddleton-under-Lovey and gets the job.  Her Mother and Noel Coward are staying in the village, her grandfather is there with her Mother and Darcy O'Mara arrives to make Christmas perfect.  Or it would be perfect if not for all the deaths.  The deaths look like accidents but with one a day everyone wonders if they are murder instead.

The mystery here is really a mystery.  The victims do not seem to have anything in common.  Like Lady Georgiana I was slow to see how they were part of a plan.  I really enjoyed the story and think this is the best book in the series so far.  Look for Georgiana and Darcy to come to an agreement and look for future mysteries for both.

Go to Goodreads for a summary.
