A Puzzle In A Pear Tree

Hall, Parnell
The Puzzle lady is in an unlikely 12 Days Of Christimas production. The Virgin Mary gets murdered. First time I read this series, so let me get this straight; everybody thinks she can solve puzzles, but she can't? Huh? Several acrostics to be puzzled over. I like Stanley more, but the puzzles are interesting.

The Appeal

Hallett, Janice
(The Appeal, #1) I enjoyed reading this mystery, where nothing is revealed until the end, unless you are smart enough to figure it out. Which I am not. A plan to raise funds to help a child with cancer, some nurses who return from Africa, a doctor from Africa, and others, figure in this tale.
