Praise

“This compact little gem, [Anne] Perry’s fifteenth Christmas novella, demonstrates her proficiency in writing Victorian-set mysteries. . . . The atmosphere of close-knit village life in the 1890s feels pitch-perfect, from the homeliness of residents’ holiday decor to the gossip that spreads like a dreadful stain. The characterization is superb, and the work’s short length is perfect for the material. The spirit of the Christmas season is cleverly evoked through the underlying theme that it’s never too late for reconciliations and second chances.”Historical Novels Review (Editors’ Choice)
 
“Perry’s many fans will enjoy another winning Victorian-era mystery set during the holidays.”Library Journal
 
“Exceptional . . . Perry unobtrusively incorporates insights about the true meaning of the season into the engrossing plot.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
