A Christmas Homecoming by Anne Perry

  Regina  Review by Regina

Title:  A Christmas Homecoming

Author:  Anne Perry

Collection:  Adult Fiction

I relish Anne Perry’s small Christmas novels – this being her ninth release. Her characters always include some of our favorites from her larger novels and I certainly feel like I’ve stepped back into Victorian times and feel the cold bleakness of winter in Whitby, York.

Caroline and her husband, Joshua, and his acting troupe arrive at the mansion of their benefactor barely ahead of the Christmas snowstorm that locks them down for days. Also arriving on the doorstep in the middle of the terrible storm is a pale, handsome man who strangely resembles one of the characters, Dracula, of the play adapted from Bram Stoker’s new novel, that Joshua’s group is to practice and perform. When this same man is found dead days later, from a sharpened broomstick driven through his heart, all who inhabit the snow-stormed manor are fearing for their lives. Can Caroline, playing amateur detective, put the clues together and solve the mystery?
