A Christmas Hope
In Perry’s 11th Christmas mystery (after A Christmas Garland, 2012), Claudine Burroughs is dreading another boring holiday season. She’s emotionally estranged from her husband, and she has nothing in common with her wealthy, status-minded friends. Then at a glittering gala, she meets the charming poet, Dai Treggaron. Hours later, Dai is accused of killing the prostitute he smuggled into the party. Convinced the upper class is protecting the real killer in its ranks, Claudine starts to play sleuth. Perry serves up yet another delicious yuletide mystery.
