But the winsome second entry in he series, Murder Goes Mumming, proves even better.Pressured into a house party in an isolated part of New Brunswick, Madoc and Janet find themselves trapped at the mansion called Graylings by a heavy storm.

Another way Madoc caught the murderer was a bit far fetched.

Anyway, what I found most unfortunate was that instead of the satisfying feeling of conclusion after the reveal, Madoc reflects that ultimately the murderer may get away with it.

In thi case the mansion is in Canada, the detective is a Mountie and his sidekick is his fiance.I enjoyed this memoir, a quick read with enough suspects that I truly did n't now who had done it, or why.

Because its hard to see Madoc and his girlfriend Janet -- two fairly straight-laced young people -- tolerating, first, his mother setting them up with the Condryckes for the holidays, and econd, her falling so quickly over Janet at first meeting as to hand over th family heirloom.Then at Graylings, this family is a little too silly and crazy.
