Overview

This holiday season at the Pennyfoot, the head count is down—but the body count is up…

With one of her housemaids leaving to get married, Cecily Sinclair Baxter wants nothing more for Christmas than some good help. Instead of visions of sugar plums, she’s calling the plumber to deal with flooded bathrooms. Then there’s the surly new janitor, who acts like he got coal in his stocking.

But as Cecily scrambles to hire and train new staff in time for the holidays, one of her guests is beyond help. Gerald Evans is found stabbed to death on the beach, and Cecily soon discovers he was a private investigator from London looking into dark doings involving the Pennyfoot. Who among the staff or guests was being pursued, and what secret drove that person to cold-blooded murder?

Mulled Murder is the twenty-first book in the Pennyfoot Hotel series. And to say, for me at least, this is the last book in the series. Once again the rush is on around the Pennyfoot Country Club to get ready for the Christmas celebration. Phoebe is once again in a dither putting together yet another skit to present at the annual Christmas show. In addition, Phoebe and her husband, Col. Fortescue find the body of Gerald Evans on the beach near the hotel. They soon fined that he was in fact a guest at Pennyfoot and also a detective who was investigating art thefts and the shipping of those items out of England. Although Cecily, Baxter and the others upstairs, are entertaining and well developed, it's the staff down in the kitchen that I have enjoyed so much. Mrs. Chubb the housekeeper, Gertie the head maid and all the other are an enjoyable group of people. They never fail to put a smile on my face and make me chuckle. Sorry to see this series end, but it has certainly been an entertaining series.
