Yule Be Dead: 11/20/21

Yule Be Dead

Yule Be Dead by Lorraine Bartlett, Gayle Leeson and Jorjeana Marie (narrator) is the fifth book in the Victoria Square mystery series. Dickens Days is upon the square and all the vendors are in costume. But the festive mood is marred by the murder of Vonne, the daughter of Afternoon Tea's owner.

Meanwhile, Katie is obliged to play host to Margo, her dead husband's mother. They were never close when he was alive but it appears she's come to make amends. They do actually end up closer when Margo is there to care for Katie after she's deliberately hit by a car.

Yule Be Dead has a bit of a Trouble with Harry Vibe, except that the dead woman isn't deserving of the scorn. She was grieving for her dead father and otherwise didn't have a great family life. Her desire to find a man who love her regardless of the other consequences unfortunately resulted in a number of men who want to keep her secrets secret now that she's dead.

The sixth book is Murder Ink (2019).

Four stars
