With her hometown awash with crime, a sleuth must solve a slaying. Can she save her family from a treacherous plot?
Yorkshire, England, 1962. Miss Riddell definitely isn’t having a merry Christmas. With her mother sick and brother pestering her to investigate a forged will, the worst winter in decades has her longing to return to regular life. And just as a series of ugly incidents in the village pushes the pressure to a boiling point, things take a deadly turn when her cousin is brutally murdered.
Convinced there’s a devious link between the fraud and the death, Miss Riddell puts her sharp mind to work uncovering clues. But with the unscrupulous culprit evading police, she’ll have to put everything on the line to corner the killer.
Can Miss Riddell wrap up the case without becoming the next frozen corpse?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always loved mysteries, especially those involving Agatha Christie's Miss Marple. Perhaps because Miss Marple reminded me of my aunts when I was growing up. But Christie never told us much about Miss Marple's earlier life. When writing my own elderly super-sleuth series, I will trace her career from the start.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Miss Riddell is based on my aunts when I was growing up. All were nurses and no-nonsense characters.
Inspector Ramsay and the other male characters are based on my uncles who were also down-to-earth characters, with infinite patience for small children.
