In the always eventful worlds of Jodi Taylor, it’s never Christmas without illegal expeditions, riotous misbehaviour and stories you just can’t put down . . .

This festive collection takes readers from Frogmorton Farm to Time Police HQ via the Institute of Historical Research at St Mary’s in five (and a bit) short stories. A Bumper Bundle of Christmas tales all in print for the very first time.

Includes a Christmas message from the author herself and an exclusive new St Mary’s scene, ‘A Storm in a Teacup’

Why is Nothing Ever Simple? For once, this Christmas jump is perfectly legal – though that doesn’t make it any less dangerous. It’s Major Guthrie’s last, and to the Battle of Bannockburn, no less.

The Ordeal of the Haunted Room Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to experience an authentic Victorian Christmas? Complete with a murderous ghost and one terrifying night in a terrible storm.

The Toast of Time Max and Markham prepare for their very first Christmas away from St Mary’s, sure to be full of Peace and Goodwill to all men . . . plus Fabergé eggs, legendary swords and a belligerent ram.

Santa Grint It all begins when the Time Police hold their first Christmas Party. Their most dangerous mission yet.

Joy to the World When things take a unseasonably tricky turn on Frogmorton Farm, only Thomas can step in to save Christmas day . . .
