M.C. Beaton's Christmas Crumble ... a Christmas tale that's holly, jolly—and deadly, by golly…
At home alone for the holidays, Agatha Raisin decides to host a dinner party for the elder residents in her Cotswold village of Winter Parva. Agatha's never been much of a homemaker, but she's dead-set on making this the perfect holiday for the "crumblies," as she affectionately calls them. She's decorated a tree while fending off her cats Hodge and Boswell, and even made a (lumpy) Christmas pudding in between swigs of rum. But when Agatha dumps the pudding on the head of the local self-proclaimed lothario—an eighty-five year old with a beer belly and fingers like sausages—his death by dessert proves more than a trifle as mysteries mount higher than the season's snowfall. So much for trying to do good by her neighbors. Now Agatha needs no less than a Christmas miracle to get herself out of this one...
Deck the halls with boughs of folly this Christmas with Agatha Raisin, a modern-day Miss Marple, who Publishers Weekly calls "an absolute gem!"
I have read many books by this author an am usually delighted. This book was a great disappointment. There are only two chapters and less than 90 pages. I felt it was incomplete.
An enjoyable reminder of how much fun Agatha Raison can be in any season. I usually don't enjoy short stories that much,but these characters are like old friends just catching up. M.C. Beaton fans will love it.
