Victoria West’s first Christmas in sleepy Swaddlecombe looks like being a traditional country affair… but then, as the decorations go up, so does the body count.
A Christmas wreath making course, liberally lubricated by local wines, comes to a tragic conclusion. Farmer Albert Moreton has things on his mind and the Reverend Ruminant has been busy plotting…
The whole village is getting festive with a ‘Caroloke’ within the pub and, of course, there is the infamous old folks’ Christmas party to navigate.
Handsome men abound but are they in reality what they appear? Is the Lord of the Manor a philanderer? Is the gardener secure together with his axe? Why would Tipple the pug’s owner abandon him, and how some distance would someone go to get their hands on a fortune?
Victoria and Albert have their work cut out to spot ‘who dunnit’ on this frenzied festive free-for-all.
