Mistletoe and Murder ~~ Carola Dunn

Mistletoe and Murder by Carola Dunn
When it comes to mischief and murder, no one covers the case more stylishly than the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple. The latest installment finds the ever-adventurous heiress dreading Christmas in Cornwall with her distant, faintly scandalous family. She has no idea that dread is about to become cold, hard fear...

Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher may have no trouble helping her husband, Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher, apprehend hardened criminals for Scotland Yard, but she's no match for her mother. The formidable Dowager Viscountess Dalrymple has issued her edict: The entire family is to gather for Christmas at Brockdene, the ancestral estate of Lord Westmoor in Cornwall. When the crew arrives at Brockdene, however, they discover that they will instead be spending the holidays with Lord Westmoor's poor relations, the Norvilles, who--when they aren't sniping at one another with venomous glee regale their guests with tales of the estate's scandalous history: deadly family squabbles, smuggling, hidden treasure, and ghosts who still haunt the halls. But when one of the guests is found stabbed to death in the family chapel, Daisy is certain there's more than a ghost at work. Now, with the presents still under the tree, Daisy finds herself enmeshed in an investigation that will take her beneath the veneer of English civility into the dark heart of a family who will do anything to keep the skeletons in their closets under lock and key...
