11/26/2002 Puzzle in a Pear Tree blooms
November 26, 2002. The fourth novel in Parnell Hall's Puzzle Lady series was published on this date.
“If you want a well-plotted mystery… try Parnell Hall’s A Puzzle in a Pear Tree.
This delightful series is a throwback to the frothy detective puzzlers
of the 1930s and 1040s [which] helped make reading mysteries fun.” –
