The Christmas Mystery

(The fifth book in the Lord James Harrington Mysteries series)
A novel by

This is the fifth Lord James Harrington cosy mystery and the first to be published as a paperback. However, don't panic, they are stand-alone stories. I intend to publish the first four via Create Space once I have re-edited them. The Lord James Harrington books are fun, corny, cosy mysteries. If you like Paul Temple, Peter Wimsey, traditional British cosy crime, then you may enjoy this series. If you're looking for a Booker Prize winner, this is not the book for you! Meet Lord James Harrington and his delightful wife, Beth; residents of the tiny village of Cavendish, deep in the heart of West Sussex in England. They adore hosting seasonal events, running their country hotel, keeping the local folklore alive and listening to the latest murder mystery on the wireless. But mysteries don't always remain on the airwaves.... It's Christmas and James and Beth are preparing for Harrington's festive dinner and dance. This year, famous diva Olivia Dupree is singing; a wedding is taking place and they're hosting a reunion of Pals - ex-army comrades from the Great War. When Olivia falls ill and claims she's been poisoned, James puts his sleuthing hat on. But things take a sinister turn when a further attack takes place. Has James' recent investigating made him a target? Are the guests who they say they are? What secret is Major Carlton hiding? Who is writing evil poison-pen letters? What relevance does the discarded diary have? And what links the two victims? James fears the criminal is unhinged and has a race against time to stop multiple murders taking place. Will he succeed or will Christmas in snowy Cavendish be overshadowed by these disturbing events? Join James, and the Cavendish regulars, as he battles to solve the crime and bring a ruthless killer to justice.
