Readers of Anne Perry’s bestselling suspense novels revel in a world that is all their own, sharing the privileged existence of Britain’s wealthy and powerful elite in West End mansions and great country houses. It is also a world in which danger bides in unsuspected places and the line between good and evil can be razor thin. This new novel features Lady Vespasia Cumming-Gould—one of the most memorable characters from the Thomas Pitt series—who appears here as a lively young woman, the ultimate aristocrat who can trace her blood to half the royal houses of Europe.

Quotes & Awards

  • “That rarest of seasonal thrillers: one that exemplifies the message and spirit of the holiday…This brief work has an almost Jamesian subtlety, and with its powerful message of responsibility and redemption—“We need both to forgive and to be forgiven”—it conveys a moral force in keeping with the season.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “A doozy of a Christmas mystery.”

    Dallas Morning News

  • “Set in Victorian England, this novelette has all the poignancy one might expect from Anne Perry…With subtle tone and pacing, Terrence Hardiman infuses Isobel’s careless remark with the depth of cruelty it reveals.”

    " I didn't quite get it. I'm sure there's some sort of Victorian reference that I missed. I'm confident I'll get it figured out with the help of my Book Club on Monday, May 24th, at 7pm at Bent Cover Bookstore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/18/2014

    " A little UNChristmassy, but ok. Loved the locale. At least it was snowy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Toni | 2/7/2014

    " This was okay as an audio book, but the story left a lot more questions than it answered. But at least it was short. I don't think there was enough depth to the story to be any longer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/30/2014

    " It was okay. It kept my attention but seemed really shallow. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen Reedy | 1/29/2014

    " Very Depressing for a Christmas book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 1/29/2014

    " Enjoyed the whole Christmas mystery series. Light and easy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 1/27/2014

    " This was a rather short book, but a good story set in Victorian times, a little Christmas mystery surrounding a suicide at a weekend house party. Interesting characters and solid development of the relationship between the two main characters, who start out as friendly acquaintances, then through their "Christmas Journey" deepen their friendship. Liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/12/2014

    " Nice story, good for an afternoon read. Read a bunch of these in a few days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 1/8/2014

    " A tale of expiation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 1/8/2014

    " A quick holiday read, not too complicated with a warm ending--just what I needed when stuck in bed with a nasty cold! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Missmath144 | 12/25/2013

    " Okay. That's enough Anne Perry for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 12/23/2013

    " Somewhat intriguing, but not one of Anne Perry's best. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stefatuk | 12/13/2013

    " Boring. No real story to speak of. A 2 is actually generous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Summer | 2/23/2013

    " I liked this one, but was not as interested in what would happen next as I was with A Christmas Guest. Anne Perry's insights into human nature is wonderful. It adds a welcome depth to the mystery she writes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bea | 1/27/2013

    " Quick Read. Well written story. Ending not obvious from beginning so kept my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 6/30/2012

    " Really enjoyed this story wasn't sure that I would but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it well worth a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathleen | 3/23/2012

    " 4.5 stars. Loved it! Perfect for Christmas Time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rayni | 12/28/2011

    " A Christmas Journey takes a character from the Pitt series, Lady Vespasia. I liked it quite well, actually. It was a light read. I looked for this for 8 months before I found it. I haven't read the Pitt series, but didn't really need to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kettie | 12/12/2011

    " A quick read from Anne Perry with a message of redemption. I enjoy the glimpse of privileged English life she gives. I liked that there was also a message and point to the story but that it was very oblique and not preachy. An enjoyable 2-3 hour read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alissa | 9/25/2011

    " I've always been a fan of Anne Perry and this one didn't disappoint. "

    " Went along really well - fell flat at the end. :( "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary-Ann | 2/16/2011

    " The first library book I've read all the way through on my Nook! Predictable wild-goose-chase story line. A tale of morals. Regrettably, not very Christmas-y (despite the title). I wished Ms. Perry would have described the Victorian Christmas decor and dinner items more fully. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 1/18/2011

    " An Ann Perry Christmas story! A mystery to be solved at during the Christmas season. No light holly, jolly Christmas here, but a great story with wonderful characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 1/12/2011

    " Fan of Anne Perry. Like them all "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 12/31/2010

    " I always like to read books set at Christmastime during December and found six this year-- all short(100-200 pages) mysteries set in Victorian Britain, by Anne Perry. Fun, easy reads for whiling away the cold hours 'til Christmas. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol | 12/21/2010

    " Pointless and not very Christmassy either. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Toni | 12/18/2010

    " This was okay as an audio book, but the story left a lot more questions than it answered. But at least it was short. I don't think there was enough depth to the story to be any longer. "

    " Another super Anne Perry Christmas book. Love the mix of Christmas and historical fiction. "

    " Quick Read. Well written story. Ending not obvious from beginning so kept my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 12/2/2010

    " Lovely little book, reminds me ever so slightly of Marilyn Robinson's Gilead, where some sermons get seamlessly worked into the moral of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 6/30/2010

    " Enjoyed the whole Christmas mystery series. Light and easy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dianna | 6/27/2010

    " The book was worth reading but not one that will garner much enthusiasm from the book club members. It left too many unanswered questions and and seemed, at times, somewhat pointless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/13/2010

    " Evan forgive me. I thoroughly enjoy this holiday series. I promise not to read it outside of December. It's snowy and charming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/2/2010

    " I enjoyed this novel but it wasn't my favourite in the series. "
