Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Suburban housewife/amateur sleuth Jane Jeffry returns in Churchill's ( Grime and Punishment ) new whodunit. Jane is barely coping with the everyday hassles of being the single mother of three when a long-lost acquaintance, Phyllis Wagner, arrives on her doorstep for a Christmas visit. Phyllis hasn't changed much in the years since Jane last saw her, but she has acquired immense wealth and a spoiled brat of a son. Within 24 hours, Phyllis is murdered, followed by her son. Suspects include Phyllis's estranged husband, a computer magnate who is discovered in a nearby hotel under a false name, p. 115 her overbearing stepson and the local celebrity--widow of rock 'n' roll legend Richie Divine, from whom Phyllis bought a house on short notice. Jane is an appealing heroine, whose frazzled but ordinary experiences, including carpools and Christmas craft bazaars, are woven into the plot, and the supporting cast is fully drawn. All the clues are there for the alert reader, and the resulting skillfulpk genre tale will attract those who find, like Jane Jeffry, that daily life provides a full complement of successes, failures and challenges.

I disagree with the reader who said this delightful mystery was "easy to figure out". Maybe I'm slow but I found the novel full of fun twists and turns in the life and events of suburban mom-turned sleuth, Jane Jeffrey. The events are set around Christmas so it's fun reading during the holidays (or at any time of year). Jane makes a very human protagonist and one is amazed at her ability to juggle a house of three kids, two cats, one dog, a best friend/neighbor, budding romance with the local police detective, solve two murders, and knit a Christmas afghan all at the same time. Sit back with a warm cup of cocoa and enjoy a delightful book!

Jill Churchill really knows her stuff! All of the characters, especially Jane Jeffry, are so true to life I expect to bump into them at the grocery store or the PTA meeting. And the murder mystery is fascinating. I didn't know "who did it" until I read the ending for myself. Thanks!!!

The second mystery in Jill Churchill's series is equal to the first--fun, easy to read, and with just enough "hmmmm" to keep the reader guessing til the end. Churchill's dry sense of humor and good writing make for a relaxing and enjoyable mystery without the gore and violence.
