Christmas Musings 2018: Gentle Thrills

Sophie Hannah Ben Schott Jessica Fellowes

These three delightful books are for readers who like their crimes gentle, not gruesome. They will make you smile, rather than keep you awake at night.

BRIGHT YOUNG DEAD
Jessica Fellowes
At the eighteenth birthday party of Pamela Mitford, Adrian Curtis, a Bright Young Thing, is pushed to his death from a church bell tower when a game goes wrong. The killer is identified and the mystery apparently solved but Pamela, Nancy and their chaperone, Louisa Cannon, think otherwise and set out to find the real killer. Another glorious mystery solved by the Mitfords.
£12.99 Hardback

THE MYSTERY OF THREE QUARTERS
Sophie Hannah
Hercule Poirot has just enjoyed an excellent lunch and arrives home in a very good mood. He is somewhat surprised to be accosted by a furious woman claiming he has accused her of murder. Inside, he finds a man who has had the same accusation made. The great detective must use his little grey cells to identify both the possible victim and the murderer.
£18.99 Hardback

JEEVES & THE KING OF CLUBS
Ben Schott
No one is better suited to following in the footsteps of P. G. Wodehouse than Ben Schott. Fully approved by the Wodehouse Estate, this riotous story reimagines Bertie Wooster as a British Spy. One can only hope that Jeeves is on hand to prevent a diplomatic disaster.
£16.99 Hardback
