Mistletoe and Murder

A Murder Most Unladylike Mystery

Robin Stevens

(Penguin Random House)

A Christmas journey to Hong Kong is out of the question for Hazel, Then again, there is still the aftermath of events at Fallingford, as shared in  Arsenic for Tea, for Daisy to face. Thereafter, both girls need another Christmas setting. Thereafter, Daisy is keen to be with Bertie,  the one family member upon whom she ‘can count‘. So, it’s a Cambridge Christmas for our detective duo, eager, as ever to hunt for clues, size up the evidence and case the setting of their new surroundings. However, little do they realise that the countdown before Christmas will include a murder at Maudlin College.
How will Wells & Wong investigate in a backdrop of misogyny, tradition and adult hierarchy? Then again, will Alexander and George, of the rival Pinkerton Society, pip them to the post in solving the crime? We know this pair has caused division between Hazel and Daisy.
Yet again, Robin Stevens‘ brilliant plotting, clear head for history and setting, and acute knowledge of her characters, convinces her readers. All in all, it means anyone lucky enough to choose this title, will relish it. Mistletoe and Murder is a wonderful Christmas set murder mystery.
