Previously titled Envious Casca‘Tis the season to find whodunit It is no ordinary Christmas at Lexham Manor Six holiday guests find themselves the suspects in a murder inuiry when the old Scrooge who owns the sub Damn it he was in here with the door locked Stephen said He can t have been stabbed I think Heyer wrote a story about people she hated in real life relished and had a hell of a time making them an exaggerated version vapid insipid and whiney but oh so highly uotable This is second in the Inspector Hemingway series and god love the man for the testimonies and evidence he has to shift through to discover the killer As a locked door mystery it s pretty good The cast of characters is varied but small enough to keep track of and most work as plausible red herrings I was wrong with my first guess as to who the villain was The first half is mostly setting the scene with introductions and glimpses into characters personalities and hints to possible murder motivations as they arrive to the house party The second half is where the murder occurs and the whodunit gets going It s a bit slow going as first the sergeant and then Inspector Hemingway arriving on the scene talk to everyone but then the clues start rolling in and the story starts to make headway How the murder occurs was a little goofy but I would classify this as a cozy mystery with some romance inspirations sprinkled in so it s all in good fun The following uote is a bit of a spoiler and my little comment after it you d know who ends up pairing up and probably figure out two characters who aren t the killer Beware You can pick back up at the Bonus Lest you forget this is a Heyer and those romance inspirations I was talking about He pulled her rather roughly into his arms O God Mathilda do keep me in order he said in a suddenly thickened voice I need you I need you damnablyShe found that her own voice was unsteady I know You are such a fool Stephen such a dear impossible foolSo are you to care a damn for me he said I never thought you did I can t think why you doShe took his face between her hands looking up at him a little mistily I like savage creatures Bull terriers and Stephen Herriard Hey you leave bull terriers out of this I had a contentious relationship with Stephen but he somewhat redeemed himself in the end But seriously bless her heart and all the Mathildas in the world who take these men on Bonus Heyer provides us with your next time you want to leave work early excuse If someone accidentally brushes up against you Nathaniel at once became a cripple He said My lumbago Damn you don t do that and tottered to a chair one hand to the small of his back and his manly form bent with suffering Lumbago Works every time
