Murder at Mistletoe Manor

(2 customer reviews)


Klarinda Snow is the innkeeper of a beautiful, historic bed and breakfast in Windy Pines, Idaho. Guests come to Mistletoe Manor to escape from their troubles while enjoying the scenic mountain town. 

When all seven rooms of the inn get booked on a Tuesday night in December, Klarinda is excited about having so much business, but a little confused as well. After all, her inn normally isn’t exactly a destination hotspot.

The guests have barely settled in before strange things begin happening. Is this the most accident prone group of travelers ever, or is someone out for revenge?

This is the first book in the Windy Pines Mystery series. All books in the series can be read as standalones.

    I enjoyed this short holiday themed mystery. It was a nice easy listen and despite there being lots of deaths there wasn’t any graphic details and In fact you weren’t even sure they were murders or just lots of accidents. I liked the inn setting and think if this was to become a series then the characters could become fun and interesting as you learn more about them, but it the short amount of time in this book it was more focused on the murders. I did know who the killer was and why, despite the author trying to deflect the suspicion. It was still a good listen.
    Klarinda is surprised to find her little inn fully booked at Christmas, normally her slowest time of the year. and the guests are all arriving on the same night. It is only after they have arrived that they realise that they know each other and evenen more surprising is that they all won the stay in a competition run by the inn, that Klarinda had no knowledge of. What is going on? Why would anyone want them all together stuck in one place at the same time? And why would someone send Klarinda an envelope full of money paying for all of them to stay there? It is only when strange accidents start to happen to the group that Klarinda wonders if this is more than just a reunion. With the snow storm keeping the police to busy to really investigate Klarinda will have to get to the bottom of it before her little inn gets a reputation as being the unluckiest inn in the world.
    I liked the narrator he spoke clearly and used a variety of voices for the characters.
    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    Do you like the game of Clue? That is what this book reminded me of. It’s a fast past who is doing it story leaving a bread crumb trail of clues. Clarinda owns Mistletoe Manor and gets 7 unexpected, annoying guests along with an anonymous package. Most of the guests have a common thread, but slowly over the course of the night they are each being having a fatal accident! But are they really accidents? I loved this quick listen. It’s full of sarcasm and humor, quirky characters and it’s just a blast trying to put some semblance to the disorder. Narrated by Christopher Lane, you will enjoy an array of voices, some with attitude and a delivery to keep you both laughing and on your toes. Give this one a listen and see what you think!
