urder at the Charity Ball by Helena Dixon

One in a series this is charming vintage classic crime genre combining good detection skills with all the restrictions of polite society. Kitty is getting married in a week. She is also seeing her father after a long time. He has been irresponsible in the past, not a favourite amongst family and she has an uphill task with her in laws to be who think her too modern. unfortunately things do not go according to plan. In the midst of a Christmas party, the hostess gets murdered and Kitty's father becomes just initially the main suspect. Kitty along with her fiancee start investigations alongside the Police and whilst this is going on another attempted murder happens, then another and everyone is stumbling to find a reason and who is the murderer. The setting for the story was charming - the village is very nicely described, the characters masterfully put together and a lovely read for this period as its set during Christmas week.
