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.

Christmas mystery

Setting: Sussex, England 1889
Genre: Mystery
Lady Julia and Brisbane return to Bellmont Abbey, the family seat of the Earl of March for Christmas to find the Earl depressed, reports of a ghost, and then jewelry starts going missing. Lady Julia is on the case!
The characters are well-rounded and consistent with previous works in the series. The plot is simple, a little above average, but complexity isn’t expected in a novella.
Once again, Ellen Archer provides a creditable performance.
