Publisher's Summary

Dominic and Clarice Corde, who met and fell in love in Brunswick Gardens, journey to a quaint hamlet to replace the local vicar who is away on holiday. The holiday takes a nasty turn when the vicar is discovered not to be away at all, but brutally murdered and stashed in the cellar.

So instead of fulfilling the vicar's duties, the Cordes are charged with solving his murder. All the while, the picturesque village is becoming increasingly and dangerously snowbound, its residents trapped as a killer remains at large.

She's not as good at shorter stories

It's not bad, but it pales in comparison to the Victorian mysteries. Probably because she is used to taking her time to develop complex, fascinating characters, this shorter form just doesn't cut it.

I Love the Anne Perry Books.....

Too short but very enjoyable. I think I have read all of Anne Perry's Christmas books. I always enjoy the narrator, Terrence Hardiman. He gives the book depth and makes you want to keep listening without stopping which is what I always do. I so enjoy listening to what happens in the little quaint villages. Anne Perry's holiday books allow you to escape for a short time and just get lost in the story. Looking forward to the next book.
