The Clue In The Pudding is the 8th book in the Holiday Pennyfoot
The Clue In The Pudding is the 8th book in the Holiday Pennyfoot Hotel series. I look forward to the fall/winter for another enjoyable story about the hotel, not the snow and cold.
The Pennyfoot Hotel is more turmoil than usual, as Mrs. Chubb has been called to her daughters. Cecily has retained Beatrice Tucker to fill in and she is more of a tyrant than Mrs. Chubb. Everyone is walking on egg shells.
Archibald Armitage, of notoriety both on and off the stage, risk his life to save the stable manager's dog from an icy duck pond, but before anyone can express their thanks, he dies shortly after eating some plum pudding that Tucker takes up to his room. Of course Cecily knows that the local constable is hardly qualified to investigate Armitage's death and set off to investigate on her own. And with the help of her staff too.
Cecily soon finds out the Armitage was not well liked, in fact a new hire in the stables stated that he would like to fix the brakes on Armitage's car so that they wouldn't work. Then there is the couple whose daughter had her engagement broken off by Armitage. Armitage had swindled a couple backers of his plays, too.
Now it just up to Cecily to sort through the facts and hopefully find the murderer before they find another victim and the hotel will have a wonderful Holiday season.
Most all the usual characters are in this book and the maids are a real laugh.
