Reading this made me feel happy as I love the author and I love Whitstable, it was also good to catch up on what the characters of Pearl, Dolly and DCI Mike McGuire had been up to.  These characters are great, so down to earth and normal and I think that is why it works as you can relate to a lot of it, well apart from the murders, lol.
In this Pearl mystery it is Christmas time so plenty of activity going on with the church events and work outings to Pearls restaurant called The Whitstable Pearl so when people start receiving poison pen christmas cards Pearl decides she has to say no to solving the mystery under her Nolan’s Detective Agency as she just has so much to do.
Things happen at the church event and one of the locals drops down dead but then because McGuire was there as a guest of Pearls he cannot lead the case, so who will solve the mystery?  Before long there is another death, are they linked to the Christmas cards? Lots of questions need to be answered so Pearl asks a few more herself.
As usual I did not guess who committed the murders so I enjoyed reading this, it is nice to read something a bit lighter but still keep you turning the pages.  This goes in my top ten for this year.  I have one more of this author’s books to read in The Whitstable Pearl Mystery series so lets hope another one is written soon.
