Partridges, Pear Trees, and Projectiles

(The first book in the Twelve Days of Christmas Cozy Mysteries series)
(A book in the Lady Persephone Victorian Mystery series)
A Novella by

It's December 1892 and at a house party in the Scottish Highlands just before Christmas, aspiring photographer, Persi (never call her by her real name, Lady Persephone Millicent Merrit) takes a lucky—or perhaps unlucky—photograph just as a rich financier is shot. Accidentally.

Or was it?

When Persi finds evidence that the shooting was intentional, not a tragic misfire, she realises that one of the party assembled in the mansion house must be a killer! And, of course, just as she discovers this, snow starts to fall, which makes everything look very pretty but blocks their access to the village and any help from the local police.

It's up to Persi, her eccentric Aunt Evangeline, and the rather handsome young Lord Glendinning to piece together the clues and identify the murderer before another guest is killed, and—very importantly—before Christmas is ruined. Because nothing is more essential than a good, old-fashioned Yuletide, with enough mince pies, mistletoe and marzipan to counteract any manslaughter and mayhem.
