#WinterGames Team #ReadNosedReindeer Another month long scavenger hunt since they seem to be a hit! If you can get a picture all the better but if not that‘s ok. We‘ll use the honesty card on this one. Have fun!

I liked ‘Sleep No More‘ by P. D. James so much I had look and see if she had any other story collections and I found this. Turns out she often wrote special stories for Christmas for newspapers and magazines. Several of her most well-known were collected in the tagged book. Murder and mistletoe...what could be better on a cold, winter night? I think I need to read this book too.

Masterful. Brilliant from the first word to the last. Shocking. Witty. Sly. Dangerous. Surprising. Each story better than the last. This collection of short stories is ALL those things & more. James plumbs the depths of love, revenge, betrayal, & greed—humans at their worst on full display & it‘s delicious & delightful. I can‘t recommend this book enough especially if you like your holidays/family gatherings/life with a side of murder & mayhem.

batsy Great review! I loved her other collection, glad to hear this one is good too. 21h

3/5. The main plot was interesting, and the story overall was solidly constructed, as I would expect from this series, but I wasn't thrilled with the subplot involving child abduction 😐

Got my Michael Connelly T-shirt today 💜 I am a huge Michael Connelly/Harry Bosch fan and I am so giddy that I got one of these shirts. It fits perfectly & is so comfortable and soft!

This is an enjoyable short story series and I love hearing Benedict Cumberbatch reading these stories. I do however keep expecting Martin Freedman to be reading these stories because Dr Watson narrates the story.

Enjoyable!

julesG I had the same problem. I was a little confused at first Cumberbatch talking about Holmes needed getting used to. 2d

When life gifts you a 47 degree day in December, you go for a three mile walk & then treat yourself to an espresso, chocolate & a murderous tale or two or six. Not even overcast skies can dampen such a morning! I absolutely love P. D. James & am excited to read some of her short stories. For anyone looking for seasonal reading, two of the stories take place around Christmas—one is even titled ‘The Murder of Santa Claus.‘ 😮 Time to read...

Absolutely delightful book about mystery solving duo of Florian and Margaret. Using the TOAST (Theory Of All Small Things) this dynamic pair help the FBI recover a Monet from the National Gallery. Way better case than Nancy Drew! (But I still love you Nance!)

I am usually not a fan of short stories but I had picked this one because of the theme of the holidays and it was available on Litsy. (I say I‘m not a fan yet I do indulge in the short story now and then) anyway I enjoyed it.
