Book a room at the Pennyfoot Hotel this holiday season for a charming mystery that "combines the feel of an Agatha Christie whodunit with a taste of Upstairs Downstairs "(Cozy Library).

A merry hustle and bustle heralds the holidays at the Pennyfoot--and this year is doubly busy. Even as Cecily Sinclair Baxter prepares for the holidays, she's also helping her friend Madeline plan her impending wedding. This year, Cecily has a cracking holiday surprise for her guests--gorgeous Christmas crackers handmade for the Pennyfoot. And once the crackers pop, one lucky guest will discover a beautiful pearl brooch.

But things soon turn less than jolly. A mysterious fire breaks out in an upstairs room, killing the mood--and two guests. And at the bottom of it all: a missing Christmas cracker. Who would deliver such a murderous gift? Cecily's dead-set on solving this mystery before another deadly present turns up, and Madeline's nuptials come unwound...

I like Cecily and her husband Baxter along with all the staff at the Pennyfoot. The killer at times is easy to figure out but it is still a good read to pass the time. Hopefully Gertie picks the right guy!
