The second in the series featuring a madcap pair of amateur sleuths and a delightful outpouring of upper-class English eccentricities - with the odd murder thrown in.
Lady Amanda Golightly, eccentric resident of the sprawling Belchester Towers, has a new venture: guided tours. To celebrate she invites a horde of old chums to a trial run at Christmas, complete with tasty nibbles. However, things don't go to plan - a dead guest is discovered slumped on the library table.
Lady Amanda and her friend Hugo Cholmondley-Crichton Crump are off again, but can they beat the morose Inspector Moody to the unmasking of the culprit?

I went straight to audio, after listening to previous book by author on audible, which I loved.
Every single moment is fantastic, you have to have a sense of humour to enjoy this author, if you are looking for a serious murder plot, don't bother, this is for people who love to laugh.
All of them, but when the Christmas presents were presented to the maid, was really sweet.
Yes, but I have listened to it numerous times now.
Loved the humor. Had me laughing out loud. I am going to try the cocktails hopeless case, wobbly knee and white Christmas
"I want a Beecham in my employ!"
Great characters. Good progression of character development. I love Beecham and want a loyal household engineer just like him in my employ. Dear Audible, please include the remainder of the series in your library so I can listen to them all. It must be Patricia Gallimore to narrate - she is fabulous!
