      once more Perry's Christmas wisdom shines!in A Christmas Promise, a lost donkey points the way to absolution A Christmas Odyssey:again we meet Squeaky Robinson in a Christmas story. How fitting a character for the season of change, the heralding of hope and peace.Squeaky is helping Oliver Rathbone's father Henry find the son of a friend. Squeaky calls on Crow for help. Their search takes them into the bowels of London, through the nastiest of brothels and opium dens. They find Lucien Wentworth. [...]

      Hmmmm. I'm feeling rather cheated.This year's entry into Anne Perry's Christmas mysteries series is in fact 1 short novella from 2009 I hadn't read, and a longer one that I read last year!Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I really would rather they'd skipped a year than recycled without being clear about it. I specifically saved this book to enjoy now, and find myself rather grumpy. Not the way I wanted to end the year.

    3. D Carr

      I dont recall ever reading anything by this author but wanted to explore some Christmas related books. These were excellent, redemptive and possessed good characters!No regrets here! I'll be reading more of her work! (DONE 12/19/15)

    4. Briansmom

      Really enjoyed these two mysteries in one by Anne Perry. Made me very interested in her Monk series; thought I am reading her series on Charlotte and Thomas Pitt, haven't read the Monk series but I will begin to look for these. Love these Dickensian Christmas stories!

    5. Shawna Hansen

      Loved both stories, but "A Christmas Odyssey" and the journey into the bowels of hell (London underground) was, for me, a knockout. Loved the ending to "A Christmas Promise" and glad Charlie to see how things went with Charlie.

    6. Maddy

      I'm not going to lie, I only read the first story of this 2 story set -- I couldn't get into the 2nd one. The first story was good but the ending a little abrupt.

    7. Hapzydeco

      Anne Perry’s description of the hard life in Victorian England coupled with universal expectations for Christmas season makes these holiday mysteries a worthwhile read.

    8. Pam

      Her Christmas stories are short, sometimes a little too somber or depressing, but I enjoy reading about the minor characters from her other series.

    9. Cindy

      Had already read the first story, A Christmas Promise, but wanted to read the second, A Christmas Odyssey.

    10. Coral White

      Christmas sentimentsThis is a fun read filled with the spirit of Christmas. Because of some of the content it should be read by adults
