I was confused when I went to my library to review this -- mine says Nadia May is the narrator. Well, turns out Wanda McCaddon is Nadia May! So, another mystery solved!
I read Ngaio Marsh's books years ago, so was happy to revisit on Audible. "Tied Up in Tinsel" turns out to be one of the best I have listened to so far! That is largely due to May/McCaddon's wonderful performance of the eccentric characters in this English Manor mystery. I especially love her treatment of Uncle Flea, a funny, lovable, irascible old Colonel in the classic Empire mode.
The story is also in the classic style of English mysteries. A twist is that the manor's servants are all ex-cons with murder in their pasts. Marsh throws in a lot of red herrings, a gorgeous Christmas tree, and a good deal of humor.
This is strictly for fans of the old-fashioned British upper-class mystery. If you're in the mood for that, this one is tops!

Where does Tied Up in Tinsel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I love classic mysteries and I love Ngaio Marsh. This one is great for the holiday season-- very quirky and enjoyable. I always forget, with Marsh, how long she takes to get into the crime. I still love her mysteries, and I love the atmosphere. It's not the greatest mystery of all time, in my mind, But it's festive and well-written as always.
