Praise for C. C. Benison’s Father Christmas mysteries
 
Ten Lords A-Leaping
 
“A strong mystery reminiscent of P. D. James, with many well-developed characters, local color and a sensitive, intelligent investigator.”Kirkus Reviews
 
“An affable lead with a sympathetic backstory anchors Benison’s carefully crafted third Father Christmas mystery. . . . Readers will hope that Christmas will keeping detecting past the partridge-in-a-pear-tree volume.”Publishers Weekly
 
“This leisurely paced, English-country-house mystery has multiple plotlines and plot twists as Tom finds a long-lost relative of a friend and solves several mysteries.”Booklist 
 
Eleven Pipers Piping
 
“Benison uses the claustrophobia of village life to great effect, making the series a psychologically astute pleasure for fans of traditional cozies.”The Washington Post
 
“Smashingly clever . . . Readers will be crazy about this vicar.”Library Journal
 
“A great whodunit in the best British tradition.”The Globe and Mail
 
Twelve Drummers Drumming
 
“A crime novel that Agatha Christie might have been justly proud to claim as her own.”—Margaret Maron
 
“Benison does an admirable job balancing humor with suspense. . . . Father Christmas’s first case leaves you eager for his next.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“Splendid . . . an intelligent and empathic protagonist and skillful prose make this a winner.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
