Summary

A snowbound country mansion, a missing butler, and a Christmas case...

Olive and Jasper have never been closer - except for one thing. Jasper is still reticent about his frequent disappearances from polite society. With the holidays approaching and no paying client on the books, Olive decides to shadow Jasper when he’s unexpectedly called away. Her search brings her to Holly Hill Lodge where an eclectic group has gathered to celebrate an old-fashioned English Christmas.

The guest list includes a celebrated lawn tennis champion, a fussy scientist studying snowflakes, a persuasive luggage salesman, a famous lady traveler, and the family’s eccentric aunt who has a fondness for the newfangled drinks called cocktails.

When the butler goes missing, Olive and Jasper must work together to solve the Christmas crime - as well as the secret Jasper hides. Murder on a Midnight Clear is the latest installment in USA Today best-selling author Sara Rosett’s popular High Society Lady Detective series.

Unwrap this 1920s Christmas mystery with all the trimmings - carols, a Yule log, plum pudding...and murder.

This is the best!

Finally, Olive and Jasper become a couple. Finally Olive finds out exactly what Jasper does! Finally they get to work a case together as equals.

They’re not Tommy and Tuppence (fortunately, I didn’t like them), and I hope that they don’t turn into them. However, as a 21st century woman with absolutely NO servants, I can’t believe how carelessly they wander about the house talking aloud to each other without considering WHO could be listening in on their conversation!!!

It’s just amazing how dismissive that class is of the people who, ultimately, pander to their every wish... a great house party whodunnit, without an obvious suspect!

Very enjoyable historical cozy mystery!

I have been keeping up with this series! I love the narrator. She sets the tone nicely and has a lovely accent that goes along with the story and it’s setting. This novel has a nice Christmas theme and of course a mystery to solve! I love how Jasper we get to know him better. It’s taking long enough! Looking forward to more of Jasper and Olive!

Wonderful Cozy Christmas Murder Mystery

I have listened to all the High Society Detective offerings at least twice but Murder on a Midnight Clear is my favorite. I have listened to it at least five times and I am looking forward to the next installation. I like that we are away from Olive’s family and friends except Jasper. It was great meeting new characters with their own back stories and quirks. Also, Jasper and Olive switched off playing Watson to the other. The narration of Elizabeth Kletts was great as usually. I would love story involving Jasper’s manservant in which Olive proves him innocent so he can get past his negative feelings toward Olive.

Really enjoy this series & this entry among best

Olive and Jasper are "sweethearts" but she feels he has secrets and starts applying her detective skills to following him in hopes of discovering what they are. When he cancels a luncheon with her, unexpectedly called out of town, she learns he's gone to "Holly Hill Lodge," near where her friend Gigi now lives, Olive determines to pay her a visit and make a stop to check on Jasper. She actually uses binoculars to look over a wall trying to get a view of the grounds of Holly Hill but when she gets back in her car to drive away, another car hits her. The occupants of the other vehicle take her to Holly Hill, where they're guests, because Olive takes a bad bump on the head and her car is undriveable. Although Jasper is apparently consorting with a beautiful actress, Olive doesn't lose her cool and the explanation unravels much of Jasper's mysterious comings and goings. Of course, there is a murder and many more mysteries for the the to solve. Thoroughly enjoyable!
