A PUZZLE IN A PEAR TREE
by Parnell Hall

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth

RT Rating

Anyone who really knows Cora Felton knows that her outward appearance is all
a sham. She is not the grandmotherly type at all and she is not the Puzzle Lady,
as everyone assumes her to be. The real Puzzle Lady is her niece, Sherry, but

no one is allowed to know the truth.


When Cora gets tapped to be in the town's Christmas Pageant, she has no
choice but to say yes. Then things get homicidal. There is a murder, and Cora
and Sherry must solve this mystery so their cover won't be blown (and Cora
loves the excitement)!


This book is the fourth outing in this wonderfully funny series. Parnell Hall

has such a flair for making a mystery funny that reading his books are always

a pleasure. He also involves the readers by giving them the puzzle to try to
solve, an added bonus for the reader. This is
the type of book that I can recommend with confidence to anybody. (Dec., 352
pp., $23.95)
