In A Christmas Guest, Mariah Ellison, better known as the
vinegar-tongued Grandmama from the Charlotte and Thomas
Pitt series, makes a stunning appearance in a bracing story
full of devious delight . . . and certain death.
For Grandmama Ellison, Christmas is no reason to celebrate.
And when her daughter and son-in-law plan a Christmas
vacation to Paris sans hers truly, the cantankerous
Grandmama is forced to stay elsewhereâ€“and travels to the
chilly, windswept Romney Marshes to spend the holiday with
Charlotte Pittâ€™s parents, Caroline and Joshua Fielding.
Grandmama is immediately miserable. For starters, Christmas
with the Fieldings is nothing like the cultured life to
which sheâ€™s accustomed, and the Romney Marshes are
unbearably provincial. When Joshuaâ€™s cousin Maude
Barrington arrives, Grandmama is at her witâ€™s end. Although
Maude is well traveled and friendly, Grandmama thinks sheâ€™s
improper and strange. But when Maude is found lifeless in
bed, Grandmama senses foul play and takes it upon herself
to assume the role of amateur detectiveâ€“uncovering not only
the truth about Maude Barrington but some startling truths
about herself as well.
Enlivened with bold characters and vivid, witty writing, A
Christmas Guest is yet another holiday novella with the
perfect combination of mystery and murder mixed with a
generous helping of yuletide cheer.
