Christmas Calamity at the Vicarage by Emily Organ

Christmas Calamity is a fun Christmas cozy mystery.  This novella is set is the small English village of Compton Poppleford.  Mrs. Churchill and Miss Pemberley are a pair of elderly sleuths.  They are very excited about the Christmas party at the Vicarage, in particular because there will be a mince pie pile.  When the choirmaster is murdered, Mrs. Churchill becomes the prime suspect.  Will she track down the murderer before she herself is arrested?  More importantly, will she ever find a slice of mince pie?

 This was a very fun novella.  It was a quick read that was full of humor and a good mystery.  I love Christmas mysteries.  This one had great elements in it including secret passageways, mistaken identities, and a great love affair.  This is my first book by Emily Organ and it certainly won’t be my last. 

 Overall, Christmas Calamity at the Vicarage is a delightful Christmas mystery!
