Book Description

The Mistletoe Mystery is a seasonal installment in the excellent Euphemia Martins Mysteries by Caroline Dunford.

It's Christmas, and Euphemia is again working for Bertram Stapleford at his ill-fated estate in the Fens, White Orchards. As it’s Bertram's first Christmas at White Orchards since he purchased it, he has a sudden desire for a big Christmas party – which creates a huge task for Euphemia, one which her normally excellent staff are reluctant to take part in. For, as she struggles with her responsibilities, Euphemia learns that White Orchards is built on the site of Hadwell House, a manor which suffered a terrible fate one Christmas Eve …
As Christmas draws closer, and people start behaving strangely, there is a palpable sense in the air that something is very, very wrong. Forming an unlikely alliance with Bertram's step-sister Richenda, Euphemia tries to prevent disaster befalling the entire household, and faces her most terrifying mystery as she sets herself against seemingly supernatural forces…

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing in both length & content 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase
I have read all the other books in the Euphemia Martins' series and have really enjoyed them. I appreciated that this was a short story when I bought it but, like the other reviewer, I didn't realise quite how short it would be. Also I found it a totally 'nothing' sort of story and wondered what the point of it was. I certainly would not recommend it and would go so far as to say that I thought it was a waste of money.

I bought tis book expecting a good read, it turned out to be a short story and the ending was not an ending at all it was as if I had only read first chapter and there should have been further ones. The book made no sense at all

3.0 out of 5 stars Short seasonal story 28 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase
A lovely short story with a Christmas theme, a house with a past, ghosts. Euphemia Martin is housekeeper to Bertram Stapleford at his new house in the Fens. He decides to host a large Christmas party this year which makes a lot of work for his staff who all believe the house to be fated.

Only 40 pages long therefore a lot is packed in to so few pages but it works.

To: Caroline Dunford:

I really wish Bertam and Euphemia could get married.
I've bought all your Euphemia Martins books, in the hope that I would see that happen.

I know that this book seemed a bit curtailed, but I still enjoyed it.

American writers seem to produce a lot more books in the same series of the mystery/romance type.

Personally, I think a series of three is fine; don't like endless series as it's just making you purchase more. But I would like a happy ending or just another book, PLEASE!

A very good short story, different from the previous books, no one was murdered, but entertaining nevertheless. Where will Euphemia go next.

3.0 out of 5 stars Euphemia to the rescue 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase
Euphemia is the heroine of the story. At the newly rebuilt house ,White Orchids, for a Christmas party thrown by her employer. Old stories start to be remembered. Suffice it to say this story has a happy ending and the promise of more to come.
