Twelve clues. Twelve keys. Twelve days of Christmas.
But who will survive until Twelfth Night?
Lily Armitage never intended to return to Endgame House – the grand family home where her mother died twenty-one Christmases ago. Until she receives a letter from her aunt, asking her to return to take part in an annual tradition: the Christmas Game. The challenge? Solve twelve clues, to find twelve keys. The prize? The deeds to the manor house.
Lily has no desire to win the house. But her aunt makes one more promise: The clues will also reveal who really killed Lily’s mother all those years ago.
So, for the twelve days of Christmas, Lily must stay at Endgame House with her estranged cousins and unravel the riddles that hold the key not just to the family home, but to its darkest secrets. However, it soon becomes clear that her cousins all have their own reasons for wanting to win the house – and not all of them are playing fair.
As a snowstorm cuts them off from the village, the game turns deadly. Soon Lily realises that she is no longer fighting for an inheritance, but for her life.
This Christmas is to die for . . . Let the game begin
I love a good murder mystery so was keen to see what this book was all about. It is a little like Agatha Christie and shares some similarities. For me I enjoyed it, it was predictable and a little slow but I was intrigued with how the story line would pan out whilst being a game. Even if you don’t solve the clues, it was still a nice story to follow along to, it is a story with a murder mystery and alongside it is other content for people who want to solve the clues. I think it is a fun book with a predictable ending.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
