What the bloggers thought:

Linda Strong Book Reviews 

This is the second in this series, and it’s an entertaining read. Jenny is a jewel … I love her attitude and her outlook on life. The mystery itself is a good one, although I figured out the why … but I wasn’t as sure of the who. It’s well written, engaging, full of interesting characters …including the goose and the Pooch … and I look forward to see where Jenny goes from here.

Joanna Larum’s Reviews 

I did enjoy the building of the characters, even the goose and the dog. In fact, the dog seemed to have more about him than the detectives.  This is a very cosy read and would be perfect for a winter’s evening.

This is the second book in the Jenny Starling series, and this time Jenny has paused her catering business due to no customers and started working for a family as a chef over the Christmas period.  Read more here

The Winter Mystery is story telling at it’s best.  It’s simple but riveting and completely demands reader participation.  I’m often drawn into books and imagine myself as one of the characters but with Faith Martin’s books it’s as though I’m watching a Sunday afternoon detective T.V. programme and I love that I can just get lost in the fun of playing amateur detective.  Read more here

On The Shelf Reviews

Jen Meds Book Reviews 

This is the second book in the Jenny Starling series but it can work very well as a stand-alone. Jenny is a no nonsense cook for hire who seems to have a knack for solving murders.   Read more here

Picturesque village life, busy bodies and murder, what more could I ask for? A full cast of characters with wit, and intelligence to boot, it’s a good read. I was kept guessing right until the end, which thrilled me no end. I love it when I don’t know how it’s going to end.  Read more here


I could very well sum what I think about the book in one word: BRILLIANT!  I can’t get enough of this character! And the setting this time is amazing too! You guys are going to love this book!  Read more here

“Classic murder mystery story with a twist at the end” Oxford Times

Meet Jenny Starling: travelling cook and reluctant amateur detective.

Please note this book was first published as “A FATAL FALL OF SNOW” under Faith Martin’s pen name JOYCE CATO.

Jenny Starling is spending Christmas in a snowed-in country house cooking all the traditional food she loves. But the family she’s working for are not full of the seasonal spirit. In fact, they seem to hate each other.

On Christmas Eve, someone is found dead on the kitchen table. And the head of the family is blaming Jenny!

But with an incompetent detective called in, and seemingly no motive for the murder, Jenny will have to give the police a hand.

She will stop at nothing to clear her name and find the real murderer.

This is the second of a series of gripping murder mysteries with a great cast of characters and baffling crimes which will keep you in suspense to the final page.
