Publisher's Summary

After a year of marriage - and numerous adventures - Lady Julia and Brisbane hope for a quiet, intimate Christmas together - until they find themselves at her father's ancestral estate, Bellmont Abbey, with her eccentric family and a menagerie of animals.

Nevertheless, Julia looks forward to a lively family gathering - but amongst the celebrations, a mystery stirs. There are missing jewels, new faces at the Abbey, and a prowling ghost that brings back unwelcome memories from a previous holiday - one that turned deadly. Is a new culprit recreating crimes of the past? And will Brisbane let Julia investigate?

    "Recommended for fans of the series only"

    Nice little story if you are familiar with the characters but would not be a good introduction for anyone hoping to get a taste before delving into the series.

    Story
    "A Cheery Christmas Novella"

    As the title suggests, this novella is a Christmas-centric one - postponing the trip for Rome that had been set up at the end of The Dark Enquiry. Julia, Brisbane, Plum, Portia, and Jane the Younger (along with the loyal staff and the menagerie of pets) return to Belmont Abbey for the holiday. Some loose ends are tied up with Lord March, another missing jewels case is solved and fresh romance abounds alongside the deepening relationship between Julia and her husband. It's a cheery story and nicely sets up the next novella - also Christmas-themed, with the every decade tradition of the March family performing a play for the local village - and including a mandatory role for Brisbane! As usual, I am looking forward to continuing on with the series!

    "Good for fans of the series"

    Short, sweet, and light. A welcome continuation of the series but we really need a full-length book.

    I was hoping to find out more about the trip to Italy that was more than strongly hinted at in the conclusion to the last book. But this Christmas interlude brought the usual characters back together and that's always fun.

    The "mystery" was very mild and solved in a paragraph. Still, Julia and Brisbane enjoy their time together - Really enjoy it. Wink wink.

    The narration was good with a few mispronounciations.

    I thought it odd to refer to Pug and " his wife." That made me lose the flow of the story for a bit. Strange. But this was a great LITTLE story. I understand the following novella continues the story. I wish they had been combined in one audiobook. I'm not sure a 2 hour book is worth $5.

    "christmasy, but enjoyable year round"

    I really did enjoy getting to hear from Lady Julia and Nicholas again. I havve missed them since Dark Enquiry came out. And I have to say: this book was just plain fun. All the animals brought unexpected plot twists to the story.

    "It was OK."

    This book was so-so. It could have been better, seemed like the story was missing something.
