Twelve Drummers Drumming by C.C. Benison
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A well written read by a Winnipeg author, C.C. Benison. I would give this book 3.5 stars but that is not an option. A tale of a pastor who has moved from London, UK to the more remote and quiet village of Thornford Regis, until a body turns up murdered and hidden in a Japanese drum. Bringing back recent memories of his own wife's murder in London, Father Tom Christmas becomes the recipient and hunter of information to try to solve this crime. With the help of a host of interesting, unique and well developed characters, the mystery is solved after the village has been turned topsy-turvy by the events surrounding the murder. I will be awaiting C.C. Benison's next murder mystery, Eleven Pipers Piping as well as seeking out his other mystery novels. A delightful read that gives one a glimpse into a small village in England that also has its drama.
