An Anne Perry Christmas by Anne Perry    December 10, 2015
This special two-in-one volume includes "A Christmas Journey" and "A Christmas Visitor"
A Christmas Journey - It's Christmas and the Berkshire countryside lies wrapped in winter chill. But the well-born guests who have gathered at Applecross for a delicious weekend of innocent intrigue and passionate romance are warmed by roaring fires and candlelight, holly and mistletoe, good wine and gorgeously wrapped gifts. It's scarcely the setting for misfortune, and no one-not even that clever young aristocrat and budding sleuth Vespasia Cumming-Gould-anticipates the tragedy that is to darken this light-hearted holiday house party. But soon one young woman lies dead, a suicide, and another is ostracized, held partly responsible for the shocking turn of events.
A Christmas Visitor - When the tranquility of a snowbound Victorian estate in the Lake District of England is shattered by a shocking murder, mathematician and inventor Henry Rathbone must put his analytical abilities to work to uncover the killer.
