I have read, reviewed and liked the author’s other series:
This one, however, was not really my thing. I have had it on my list for a while and started and stopped it closer to its publication date. On the lookout for a quick read, I gave it another shot.
This is the story of a circus troupe performing in the Christmas village and one of them gets murdered. The search is on for the culprit, and the village ‘elders’ get together to throw ideas around. There is a lot of bumbling around by the law in the town, and although it was funny at times, beyond a point it was little too much for me. There are many, many clues thrown our way to identify the culprit, which I then did and therefore felt the final explanation to drag to the point. I am in the minority over my reaction to the book as Rekha’s Review would indicate.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is completely based on my reading experience.
