Tom Christmas came to picturesque Thornford Regis with his young daughter to escape the trauma of losing his wife. Her murder sent him packing to the bucolic and charming town, where violent crime isn't supposed to happen and the greatest sin is supposed to be nothing a member of the clergy can't handle. Then, at the town fair, a woman is found murdered. Tom soon learns that everyone in Thornford Regis has a secret to hide--infidelity, theft, even past murders. Twelve Drummers Drumming showcases a lovely place to live and/or die, and marks the debut of a planned twelve-book mystery series featuring the brilliant Father Christmas.Review Quotes
Praise for Twelve Drummers Drumming
"A satisfying, character-driven read. The author presents a full plate of options, leaving the reader puzzling through the possible motives of an intriguing ensemble cast. The likeable vicar and his Nancy Drew-loving daughter should become reader favorites."
—Library Journal (Starred)
