Every murderer’s worst nightmare, Sam Jones, is unleashed for her seventh outing.
The discovery of a dead body tied to the village Christmas tree on New Year’s Eve in the quiet village of Lesser Swinfold, is an unwelcome complication for Sam Jones, sculptor and involuntary sleuth, and her boyfriend, Hugo, who have come to celebrate with Sam’s best friend, Tom. Tom, who has taken a job there as a primary-school teacher in the hope of meeting plenty of available and sex-hungry single mothers, becomes the principal suspect.

I bought this book at my local B&N in the clearance section. I read the synopsis and thought it was right down my alley because I love a good British Mystery. Well, it did not disappoint. It had the right amount of suspense and edge that I like. I look forward to reading the other Sam Jones Detective books written by this author. Enjoy!
