    Silent Nights characters ☆ 5 Silent NightsI've enjoyed Martin Edwards' Lake District Mystery series for a while now and I have also followed his blog where he discusses his enjoyment of classic mysteries Well I can see that he has put that enjoyment to very good use In these fifteen stories chosen for their Christmas season setting Edwards has created a collection of Golden Age mystery stories by authors both familiar and unknown They vary in setting from the country estate on Christmas to the city home during a winter storm or a railway journey at the holidays There are all sorts of detectives Some you may recognize More you likely will notI found this collection completely engaging with no real misses Among my favorites Conan Doyle's Blue Carbuncle Stuffing by Edgar Wallace Sayers' The Necklace of Pearls The Case is Altered by Margery Allingham I have decided I must read of her ASAP Waxworks by Ethel Lina White and Cambric Tea by Marjorie Bowen I

    Silent Nights characters ☆ 5 Silent NightsThis is a wonderful collection of Golden Age detective stories all set around the festive Christmas season Martin Edward's Introduction whets the appetite for what's to come and each story is introduced with a useful couple of paragraphs which put the stories in context and give some basic information about each authorBecause it's an anthology of different authors you never know what's coming next and the styles are so varied I really appreciated the opportunity to sample a range of different styles of writing and try several authors I hadn't come across before I will certainly be checking out the books of J Jefferson Farjeon H C Bailey and Leo BruceThank you to NetGalley and Poison Pen Press for providing this book for review
