I love cozy mysteries and I love Christmas books. This fun Edwardian mystery revolves around the decorating of the Pennyfoot Hotel. A large part of decorating in the Edwardian period in England revolved around lots and lots of holly bows. While Cecily Sinclair gets ready for the hotel celebrations at the inn her husband, Baxter, and stable manager, Samuel, went into the woods to gather the holly. But when time passes and the cart comes home without Baxter or Samuel, but with a dead body, the mystery begins with Cecily and Samuel in pursuit of answers.
The characters in this book keep the period as a large part of this story with their various squabbles, relationships, and house duties. Especially enjoyed a servant's first ride in a motor car, and the Colonel who takes advantage of every opportunity to have a drink and run on and on about his days in the Boar Wars. The Christmas events tell of Edwardian Christmas customs and different foods. A great fun book for the season.
