A murder and a missing husband make for a humdrum Christmas for Cecily Sinclair Baxter in this Pennyfoot Hotel mystery.

While preparing the Pennyfoot Hotel for Christmas, Cecily Sinclair Baxter sends her husband and stable manager into the woods for some fresh boughs of holly. When their horse drawn carriage returns unmanned, it bears the holly—and the unwanted gift of a dead body.
 
Now Cecily is determined to solve the mystery and find her missing husband. After all, it’s a season of celebrating with friends and family, and Cecily means to reunite hers—even if a killer leads her in a merry measure...

About the Author:

Kate Kingsbury is a full-time writer and the author of the Pennyfoot Hotel Mysteries, set in Edwardian England; the Manor House Mysteries, set in an English village during World War 2; and the Merry Ghost Inn Mysteries, a contemporary series set at a bed and breakfast on the Oregon coast. Born in London, England, she now lives in the United States.

From Publishers Weekly:

In Kingsbury's charming third holiday-themed Pennyfoot Hotel mystery (after 2006's Slay Bells), hotel proprietor Cecily Sinclair Baxter is supervising the final details of the decorations in the ballroom while her husband and the stable master head into the woods to gather holly. All too quickly, the horse-and-carriage return driverless, bearing only the corpse of a stranger. Frantic and dissatisfied with the Badger's End constabulary, Cecily takes it upon herself to find the missing men and identify a murderer. The Edwardian England setting is emphasized by the romances and adventures of numerous stereotypical characters, from Colonel Fortescue with his brandy-soaked tales of exploits in the Boer War to the downstairs crew of stout housekeeper, high-strung French cook and several gossipy maids. Bright, engaging Cecily doggedly seeks the truth in this fast-paced cozy that will provide warm holiday entertainment for Kingsbury's many fans. (Nov.)
