They Found Him Dead, by Georgette Heyer, is surely the perfect title for a holiday read. This mystery features a death at a birthday party and, of course, a dysfunctional extended family to point suspicion at.
Review: I cheated a little on this as I’ve been reading Heyer novels for decades – I am not familiar with most of her mystery books though, so I added this to the 40 book list when I saw it. She writes in a descriptive but straightforward way, so the driver is always the characters, who are delightful.
