Journal Entry 1 by weeder from Worthington, Ohio USA on Sunday, November 22, 2015
This is a Christmas themed Cozy Mystery by Rhys Bowen (A Royal Spyness Mystery Bk# 6) which has 9 books. At the back of the book are several seasonal recipes, i.e. Christmas Pudding, games, and explanations of old Christmas traditions such as Boxing Day.

But, it's still a Cozy with "accidents/murders?" and several intrigues. Enjoyable reading for the season, eh?

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Enjoyable series--I've read them all and was sad when I finished the last one. Perhaps, a new one will be added-we can but hope.

Received as a generous book offer from weeder. Thank you once again for your generosity. I will add this to my summer pile. Can't wait to be introduced to the series and hope I'd enjoy it as much as you did.

I enjoyed the book very much. A quick easy read with interesting characters. I would read more in the series. I will be passing it along to another bookcrosser in RABCK sweepstakes.

18 August 2017: The book arrived today. Thank you for your nice note.

Blurb: She may be 35th in line for the throne, but Lady Georgiana Rannoch cannot wait to ring in the New Year - before a Christmas killer wrings another neck.
On the 1st day of Christmas, my true love gave to me - well, actually, my true love, Darcy O´Mara, is spending a feliz navidad tramping around South America. Meanwhile, Mummy is holed up in a tiny village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And I´m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.
So it´s a miracle when I contrive to land a position as hostess to a posh holiday party in Tiddleton. The village is like something out of "A Christmas Carol"! But then there are 3 deaths, so-called accidents. Perhaps a recent prison break could have something to do with it ... that, or a long-standing witch´s curse. But after Darcy shows up beneath the mistletoe, anything could be possible in this wicked wonderland.

Oh interesting......winner or decoy of the Tiara Sweep??
Either way - thank you very much to PrincessRainbow for the book, which looks great and the lovely postcard with elephants on it :)

This is the first I've read in this series, but would read more if I came across them.
A lighthearted, fun cozy mystery, somewhat similar to an Agatha Christie novel.
Very "English" recipes and games at the end of the book.

Thanks for your generous parcel with the book of yet another series new to me (I've heard of the author though). I'm looking forward to tasting the tea with the herbs from New Zealand! The Chocolate Kiwi-Dollars somehow didn't last the short way to the piggy bank... ;-)
Thanks also for the bc labels and stickers, for the lovely postcard and your kind wishes. And all this on a monday, when there is usually no post at all - what a great way to start the week!

A nice cozy mystery, but also a manual for celebrating Christmas "the good old way", recipes included. My first in the series, too, but I've come across the first one recently, and I'll keep "Her Royal Spyness" in mind...
