Tired of Christmas mysteries that are short on snow, holiday flavor and all things well, Christmas? So am I and I only wish I would've discovered 12 Clues earlier in the season.

Well, late is better than not so with a chill in the air, my yule log video playing on screen, a hot cocoa nearby, I enjoy tucking into Ms. Bowen's latest Royal Spyness mystery.

Page after page, this cozy doesn't quit. Engaging characters, lovable protag, Noel Coward, mysteries, clues and lots of old fashioned British Christmas traditions are found throughout this whosdoingit?

Put this one on your 2013 winter holiday must read list. And if you can't wait 'til then and whilst there's a chill in the air, play a yule log video on your screen, have a hot cocoa nearby, and enjoy tucking into this Royal Spyness mystery.

Rhys Bowen's The Twelve Clues of Christmas has a plucky, likable heroine plus a great atmospheric snowy village as a setting. What more could you ask from a cozy? This Royal Spyness series is even better than her Evan Evans series and that's saying something.

Since Its Christmas, I just couldn't resist the new Rhys Bowen book, The Twelve Clues of Christmas. This is a rather clever installment in the Royal Spyness series. Georgie is back and desperate to find a better place to spend Christmas than with her tight-fisted disapproving sister-in-law. Fortunately, she comes across an ad requesting a lady to help assist in hosting a Christmas party. Unfortunately, once she gets to the charming little town people start dying at the alarming rate of one per day. Of course the book isn't complete without Darcy, her mom and the always entertaining Queenie. This was a very fun way to spend a couple of hours and to kickoff the holiday season

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Set at Christmas-time 1933, Bowen's sixth whodunit featuring the irrepressible Lady Georgiana Rannoch (after 2011's Naughty in Nice) may be her best yet. Despite her connections (albeit attenuated) to the Crown (she's 35th in the line of succession), Georgiana finds herself at the mercy of her brother's ghastly family. Escape comes just in time for the holidays when she answers an advert and is hired to help Lady Hawse-Gorzley with a large Christmas party at Hawse-Gorzley's home in Tiddleton-under-Lovey, Devonshire. Accompanied by the anti-Jeeves, her bumbling, if endearing, maid Queenie, Georgiana arrives in Tiddleton-Under-Lovey only to find that a series of apparently accidental deaths has begun to plague the rustic community. With one villager dying each day, the amateur sleuth suspects that the accidents are anything but. Bowen blends zany humor with fair-play detection as well as any author of traditional mysteries. Agent: Meg Ruley, the Jane Rotrosen Agency." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
"Review" by , "A grand period piece and a lighthearted and completely diverting mystery."
"Review" by , The Twelve Clues of Christmas is yet another brilliant novel from Rhys Bowen....Like all of Rhys's books, this is so much more than a murder mystery. It's part love story, part social commentary, part fun and part downright terrifying. And completely riveting. I adore this book and can hardly wait to give it to all my family and friends for Christmas! For all who love the season, and a great murder mystery, this book is perfect."
"Review" by , "Wonderful characters....A delight."
"Review" by , "Hilarious adventure....What an absolute delight! With a witty and clever plot, it's clear that Agatha Christie is alive and kicking and what's more, she's funny!"
