This book probably arrived on Friday but we were off on a short camping trip so I just found it. Thanks Scarlett07 for doing the trade with me. This will be my New Brunswick read for John Mutford's third Canadian reading challenge.

This was a quick and satisfying read. I got a little tired of "Jenny" being so beautiful and virtuous and modest but the other characters were much more interesting.

This is the second in the Madoc and Janet Rhys series by this author (a pseudonym for Charlotte Macleod). They get engaged at the start of the book and married at the end. While they are celebrating their engagement with Madoc's mother, a Fredericton arts connoisseur (and Janet's employer) comes over to the table to greet Lady Rhys. It is only a few days before Christmas and when he learns that Madoc and Janet are going to be alone for the holidays he invites them to the family home, Graylings, in the north of New Brunswick. Graylings is a large and unmodernized house with all the requisite secret passages and doorways for a murder mystery. The family includes the Squire, his mother-in-law, four grown children of the Squire, three grandchildren and a maiden aunt. There is also a faithful retainer, cook and other assorted help in residence. On the night Janet and Madoc arrive the mother-in-law dies and Madoc, an RCMP detective, is sure she was smothered. A huge snowstorm means that he can expect no help for some time so he, with Janet's help, must discover the murderer without falling prey themselves. Another death occurs before they can do so but, of course, the mountie gets his wo/man.

There is lots of local colour and what could be more Canadian than having a Mountie as the investigator? This certainly qualifies for the challenge.

I'm going to keep this until the 2010 Canada Day release challenge.
