Anne Perry's Christmas Mysteries: Two Holiday Novelsby Anne Perry
Synopses & Reviews
Two holiday novels provide the perfect combination of mystery and murder mixed with a generous helping of Yuletide cheer.
A CHRISTMAS GUEST
When her daughter and son-in-law plan a Christmas vacation to Paris sans hers truly, Grandmama Mariah Ellison travels to the chilly, windswept Romney Marshes to spend the holiday with old friends. But when the body of a fellow guest is found lifeless in bed, Grandmama senses foul play and takes it upon herself to assume the role of amateur detective–uncovering startling truths about the victim . . . and herself as well.
A CHRISTMAS SECRET
Dominic Corde is thrilled to “fill the robe” as substitute vicar in the village of Cottisham while the Reverend Wynter is away on a Christmas holiday. Upon arrival, Dominic and his wife, Clarice, wonder how they will be received by the congregation. But the Cordes soon discover that they have more dire matters to worry about. It turns out that the Reverend Wynter isn’t on holiday at all–and that something very sinister has transpired.
During a visit to the home of Charlotte Pitt's parents, Grandmama turns sleuth when a fellow guest--an outcast from her own family--is murdered, in The Christmas Guest, and in A Christmas Secret, substitute vicar Dominic Corde and his wife Clarice discover the corpse of the murdered vicar in a picturesque hamlet that is snowbound by a blizzard. Original. 25,000 first printing.
