For countless readers, Christmastime means a delicious new
holiday mystery from New York Times bestselling
author Anne Perry. A Christmas Escape, her thirteenth
noel to the season, transports us to the Mediterranean
island of Stromboli for an unconventional Yuletide
adventureâ€”and an unforgettable volcanic encounter.
Lonely Charles Latterly arrives at his small
hotel hoping that the islandâ€™s blue skies and gentle breezes
will brighten his spirits. Unfortunately, thereâ€™s no holiday
cheer to be found among his fellow guests, who include a
pompous novelist, a stuffy colonel, a dangerously
ill-matched married couple, and an ailing old man. The one
charming exception is orphaned teenager Candace Finbar, who
takes Charles under her wing and introduces him to the
islandâ€™s beauty. But the tranquility of the holiday is
swiftly disrupted by a violent quarrel, an unpleasant
gentlemanâ€™s shocking claims of being stalked, and the
ominous stirrings of the local volcano. Then events take an
even darker turn: A body is found, and Charles quickly
realizes that the killer must be among the group of
Captivating in its depiction of
untamed nature in all its awesome power, and of the human
heart in the throes of transformation, A Christmas
Escape gifts readers with Anne Perryâ€™s talent for making
the season brighterâ€”and more thrilling.
