THE CHRISTMAS APPEAL
(The Appeal, #1.5)
This was a hilarious holiday mystery novella. I really enjoyed the first book, The Appeal and this one features the same characters. I loved that this was partly an epistolary novel with emails, texts, voicemail and interview transcripts.
It was great getting together with The Fairway players again, what a bunch of characters! Or should I say charactures? This book was like a slap-stick comedy and an excellent pallet cleanser after reading so many sad books recently. I mean if you can’t laugh at a dead Santa do really even have a sense of humour?
If you’re looking for a good mystery with a sense of community and lots of humour I highly recommend this series. And if Janice Hallett decides to take us back to Lower Lockwood in the future I would definitely be up for another visit.
