When the weather turns cold and dreary, nothing warms you up like a hot drink and a good book! If fun and quirky mysteries are your thing, author Rhys Bowen has 3 series to choose from. The latest installment in her Royal Spyness series is called The Twelve Clues of Christmas, and comes packed with holiday nostalgia, history, recipes and murder!

Rhys joined Margaret to chat about her writing proces, as well as share several of the English holiday traditions featured in her newest novel. She brought sausage rolls, and several audience members had fun pulling Christmas crackers.
