Summary

Discover a new series of whodunits by million-selling author Faith Martin. These charming mysteries will have you scratching your head to work out who the murderer is.

Meet Jenny Starling: travelling cook and reluctant amateur detective.

Please note: This book was first published as A Fatal Fall of Snow under Faith Martin’s pen name Joyce Cato.

Jenny Starling is spending Christmas in a snowed-in country house cooking all the traditional food she loves. But the family she’s working for are not full of the seasonal spirit. In fact, they seem to hate each other.

On Christmas Eve, someone is found dead on the kitchen table. And the head of the family is blaming Jenny!

But with an incompetent detective called in, and seemingly no motive for the murder, Jenny will have to give the police a hand.

She will stop at nothing to clear her name and find the real murderer.

This is the second of a series of gripping murder mysteries with a great cast of characters and baffling crimes which will keep you in suspense to the final minute.

Perfect for fans of classic whodunits by authors like Agatha Christie, LJ Ross, TE Kinsey, and J. R. Ellis.

light and frosty winter whodunit fun

An easy listen and none the worse for it. Engaging characters and a decent story but no good if you're on a diet and trying to avoid mince pies.

Very entertaining

Very enjoyable, lightweight but entertaining. Only annoying thing is her obsession with her cooks size which does become somewhat tedious

good book but the genetics are wrong

two blue eyed people can't have a brown eyed child because neither have the brown gene or it would be promenant but two brown eyed people may have regressive blue gene and pass there blue genes to a child.. take that away and the motive disappears

Thrilling, entertaining stuff.

Well narrated. However, why is 'he was sat' considered to be correct English?

Worth listening!

murder most entertaining!

A very enjoyable murder mystery, which feels like a classic. Narration was nice fitted well with the theme, however felt tone was a little off in places.

The Winter Mystery

I thoroughly enjoy the mustrry series, love the way the solving of this murder is done, while Jenny does her cooking, which can really make your mouth water! Will definitely be reading/listening to them all. The narration is excellent.
