In this holiday short story John Pickett gets to investigate a burglary and celebrate the holidays with the family of his mentor, Mr. Colquhoun.
Seeing John amidst the family celebrations at the Colquhoun residence is sweet and a little sad as John yearns for more for himself than his solitary life.
The investigation wraps up a little quickly as this is a novella but is still well done and doesn't feel rushed.
Joel Leslie Froomkin's performance was top notch and very enjoyable.

I enjoyed this audiobook of the continuing stories of John Pickett. Although the mystery was rather simple, and it was easy to guess the culprit early on, I enjoyed learning more about the magistrate and his domestic life. He is obviously a very warm and caring person, and a dedicated mentor to Pickett. Following Pickett's thought processes and watching him methodically pursue clues and apprehend the criminal was fun, with humor interspersed throughout the tale. The story also adds another layer to the challenging relationship between Pickett and the Viscountess Fieldhurst. I am eager for the next book/audiobook in the series!
The narration was good and well-paced. It made for easy listening.
I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook from the author. This is my honest, voluntary review.

I so enjoy this series! The characters of John Pickett and Lady Fieldhurst are such endearing characters. Joel Froomkin does such an outstanding performance with this series. I love his accents and various voices for the characters. He puts the right emotions into the story. Sheri Cobb South is able to write vivid imagery, that one can envision the various scenes. Although this book is a novella, it is so worth listening to. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series. This story is both a standalone listen and a continuation of the series. I liked the fact that I wasn't certain who the thief was until it was revealed. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.
In this book we don't see a lot of Lady Fieldhurst and there is a mystery for John to solve. We get a little insight in John's history and what he does during this time of the year. I felt really sorry for him in this book because I saw how lonely he was and in some way he envied his mentor, (who he spent Christmas with), for his family. This is something he wants and has doubts of getting.
