Recently widowed, Father Tom Christmas would do almost anything to avoid the Thornford Regis annual Robert Burns Supper. But as chaplain to a traditional Scottish pipe band, he must deliver the grace and contend with wailing bagpipes, whiskey-laced parishioners, and the culinary abomination that is haggis. As snow falls, the revelers carry on - briefly interrupted by a stranger seeking shelter - until piper and hotel proprietor Will Moir goes missing.

I enjoyed the device of the letter written by Madrun the housekeeper at the beginning of each chapter. The Twelve Drummers Drumming was all right but if I hadn't enjoyed Eleven Pipers Piping more I probably would not be looking for the Ten Leaping Lords, of which there was something of a lead in at the end.

I enjoyed the book as I have with all his prior mysteries. The only negative I can offer is that it gets a bit wordy in places and he could have kept the mystery intact with about 75 fewer pages

Preferred his earlier book - 12 Drummers Drumming. Well-written and enjoyable but explanation of the murder rather far-fetched.

Great addition to this series. Who wouldn't like a character named Father Christmas. I put this in the Cozy mystery category - very enjoyable.

For a book with such cute characters (Father Christmas?!) this has a lot of plot twists, I was impressed.
