It's a book to pick up around that time if you want some festive scenery description and a mysterious crime that spread over 20 years. A trail is stopped by snow and several of the passengers leave to walk to the station, only to get lost and come upon a house where the tea is set and the fires are burning but nobody is home.
It took me quite a while to read, half because it was a busy time and half because I wasn't really gripped by the tale. The writing is a reflection of the time it was written and it was a lot less dark than modern crime stories. I'm not quite sure about it even now. I did like the characters though, there was a pretty wide range and they were all well developed and sometimes quite funny!Review originally posted on Imogen’s Typewriter.
