It's Christmas in the Cotswold village of Little Beecham...a season to celebrate with caroling, mistletoe, and mince pies.
In this sequel to Under an English Heaven, newlywed American Ellie Kent is looking forward to her first English village Christmas, but a missing Oxford student and an abandoned baby soon draw her away from the fireside into danger.
When a body is discovered on Boxing Day, Ellie comes to believe all these events may be linked through a group of teenage girls who identify with Shakespeare's tragic Ophelia. The police scoff at her theory, so Ellie pursues her own investigation to identify their secret Hamlet, who may be a killer.
Don't miss the first Ellie Kent mystery - the 2016 winner of the Mystery and Mayhem Grand Prize for best mystery. In Under an English Heaven, life brings the skeptical American Ellie Kent to a village in the Cotswolds as the vicar's new wife, but death keeps her guessing how long she'll be there.
