Christmas is coming, and what could be better than curling up with a festive read which contains snowmen, carol singers, plenty of hearty Christmas food… and murder? The snowman in question in Prudence Bulstrode’s latest outing is no run of the mill one, however, as inside it harbours a frozen corpse… but of course, how did the body get there? And, more importantly… why?
Rosemary Shrager’s Prudence Bulstrode series is huge fun – not only is Prudence what Rosemary really wants to be (and to be doing!), she also manages to squeeze into the pages of this cosy crime book a whole list of delicious regional dishes – muffin-topped winter stew, Scarborough Woof and, because it’s Christmas, a fantastic figgy pudding. So really indulge yourself and get stuck into this seasonal crime caper to get you into that Christmassy mood!
