Dominic and Clarice Corde, minor characters who fell in love in Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novel Brunswick Gardens (1998), are called to the small village of Cottisham in Oxfordshire, where Dominic is to replace Reverend Wynter, who unexpectedly went on holiday right before Christmas. While fetching coal from the cellar, Clarice discovers the vicar's body in the second cellar. Some holiday. Although the local doctor says Wynter died of natural causes, Clarice and Dominic don't agree and begin their own investigation as snow blankets the village. What secrets did Wynter know that may have caused his death? Along with rummaging about in the villagers' closets in search of a motive, the sleuths also deal with Dominic's lack of confidence in his abilities to minister to his flock this Christmas season. Engaging characters, a vivid sense of time and place, and a cozy setting add enjoyment to this Victorian mystery.

A short Christmas novel - quick and easy to read. I preferred a previous one of hers i read - The Christmas guest - but this was still a good average read as Perry has such engaging characters - Vicard Dominic Corde and his wife, Clarice, are spending Christmas in a small village. Vicard is substituting for the beloved Rev. Wynter who has suddenly left town on holiday. But nothing is really what it seems to be in this village and Vicar Corde and Clarice soon uncover a number of secrets.

A satisfying cosy mystery.

I enjoyed this short tale. Although there wasn't much in the way of detection, the characters were engaging.

Received in a book box from Catsalive, as this is a nice short one and should be able to go as a letter, I will pop this aside for a future Xmas Book swap or Book Ray.

An easy read with a wonderful Christmas message. I read many Anne Perry's books, mainly Monk and Pitt in the Victorian era, and I like how the women are all spirited individuals who achieve and are loved.

Anne Perry's Christmas mystery provides somewhat of a counter to the sappy sweet holiday fare you usually associate with a Christmas read. There's no deep, intricate investigation to this mystery although there are plenty of red herrings. Worth reading.
