A Christmas Beginning (Christmas Novella 5)

The fifth in Anne Perry’s series of charming Christmas novellas.
For Superintendent Runcorn, Christmas has rarely looked so bleak. Believing that a change of scenery may help him finally forget Melisande Ewart, Runcorn heads for the beautiful, desolate Isle of Anglesey. Any hopes of Christmas passing quietly are dashed, however, when he discovers Melisande is also in Anglesey and, moreover, that she is engaged to another man.
Then the local vicar’s sister is found murdered and Melisande’s brother is implicated in the crime. Determined to assist Melisande in her time of need, Runcorn resolves to find the killer. Is it possible in doing so, that he will also win the heart of his one true love?

Reviews

Praise for Anne Perry's other Christmas novellas: '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
The tale is redolent with Victorian atmosphere, from the hypocritical snobbishness to the rigid social conventions of the time
Tangled Web
If you don't have a lump in your throat by the time you finish the final few pages, you shouldn't have had all that sherry
