Silent Night by Deanna Raybourn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Silent Night is a short and sweet Christmas novella belonging to the Lady Julia Grey mystery series by Deanna Raybourn.
In this instalment, Lady Julia and her investigator husband, Nicholas Brisbane, travel with their assortment of animals to the Grey family estate to celebrate the festive season with Julia's family. Julia is keen to show Brisbane how wonderful the Grey Christmas celebrations are, however upon their arrival Julia is shocked to find the Christmas décor lacking, the staff ill, her father sulking in his study, and valuable jewellery missing! Julia, true to form, is eager to get to the bottom of the problems plaguing the family estate so that she can treat her husband to a truly merry Christmas.
A wonderful holiday read, Silent Night is a great little teaser for dedicated Lady Grey fans, and the perfect introduction for the Lady Grey novice. The only downside to the story is that it was nowhere near long enough and left this reader craving more, more, MORE!
