The follow-up to the first-in-series Wicked Autumn is deep, clever, and seriously hilarious. Kudos to the author.

The story is especially interesting on audiobook, with the delightful narration of Michael Page. The characters bounce from the pages as truly sinister figures, and how to decide which is responsible for the deaths of the patriarch Oscar, Lord Footrustle, and his twin, Lady Baynard. Christmas sings through the chapters or well as the halls of Chedrow Castle, as Max aides Inspector Cotton in finding the killer. Malliet uses many references to The Bible, Shakespeare, and various famous movie lines to unfold the story. A gifted reader could write an excellent paper on all these allusions. In Nether Monkslip, the females plot to catch Max in a matrimonial web, which will be the lucky woman? A most delightful afternoon passed in a wonderful

Keeps you guessing. Father Max is an unlikely detective until you learn of his past. This is a finely crafted seriess, a glimpse into village life with its quirky charactrs. The daily trials of a pastor are detailed as well with wry humor.

Book #2 of this series was very in-depth and descriptive. This made it a bit more of a challenging read .... ...but I found it to be engaging and delightful. The author digs in deeper to her main character "Father Max." The character himself even describes himself as "father brown." A cool way to pay kudos to the Father Brown mystery series. As a reader, we are learning so much more about Father Max. His history, his parish, and his personality. Father Max is even starting to fall in love. The story itself is intriguing. The typical murders at the manor. We learn a lot about all the suspects during individual interviews with the police and Father Max. So the reader is told everything about the suspects until....the very end of the story. The police do things on the side at the end which is wrapped up very nicely once the case is solved. I would recommend GM Malliet to all cozy mystery readers.

I loved this book for so many reasons.  I believe Malliet must be the reincarnation of Agatha Christie and some popular present day satirist/ comedian.  Max Tutor is a handsome Anglican priest who used to be a MI-5 agent. His church is located in the small English village of Nether Monkslip, with all the foibles and characters one would expect to inhabit such a village. But Malliet has updated their thoughts and actions to fit expertly into the twenty-first century.  Max is a combination of Hercule Poirot, Father Brown, and Sherlock Holmes.  As an Anglican Priest, his life is further complicated by his 'love interest', the beautiful spiritualist and  town's herbalist.  He is also haunted by the death of his MI-5 partner who had taken Max's place in their last mission together, where Paul was killed.   This second in the Father Max Tutor series, ( Wicked Autumn was book one)  finds Max being asked to go to an English Manor house to 'observe' the remaining family gathered there for a Christmas holiday.   The Lord of the manor has been murdered, just before his twin sister died of natural causes.  Of course the family is full of 'characters' that have many idiosyncrasies of their own.  The interactions between these characters is written wonderfully, with stereotypes and additional characteristics that were a feast for this reader!!   AND---the mystery was wonderfully done also.  Never guessed till the end, but the clues had been placed expertly throughout the book ! I had read book one and enjoyed it very much, but book two was exponentially better. So looking forward to reading Malliet's take on spring and summer with Father Max and more mysteries!!
