Title: The Santa Klaus Murder

Rating: 3/5


Summary:
A classic country-house murder, everyone in the family seems to benefit from Sir Osmond's death, everyone except the man who seems to have had every opportunity.


Review:
This really was a classic good old fashioned mystery.

I love the setting of the English Manor and the English countryside. There's something about the glamour of that time that really appeals to me. I thought the characters were were great, though it took me some effort to keep everyone in order.

I really enjoyed the Christmas aspect of this, as it really creates a wonderful setting. I did, however, find myself a bit disappointed with the ending. It was just like "oh... okay."

I would really recommend this book though, for the festive season, if you enjoy classic murder mysteries.
