Word of warning: two of the four stories also appear in the collection "Candied Crime".

Four Christmas crime stories featuring the Gershwin family and Constable Penrose. The humorous and cosy tales take place in the fictional village of Knavesborough, Yorkshire. Light entertainment for readers who prefer their Christmas dinner with solid doses of crime and humour. 8,000 words in all.

The stories can be read on their own, but they are actually short prequels to the novel "The Cosy Knave", published earlier in 2011. So for fans of this writer, the collection offers plenty of opportunity to meet up with old friends from Knavesborough. Meet Rhapsody Gershwin as a teenager, surrounded by her bustling family in the vicarage, Constable Penrose on his first serious case, plus the grumpy Kickinbottoms and the knitting club conspirators.
