Lady Julia and Brisbane are summoned once more to her family estate for Christmas. However, Julia's expectations of a quiet and warm familial Christmas are dashed when she discovers that half the household staff are sick with colds, her father is a terrible humour, and the house isn't even decorated for Christmas. Plus, much to everyone's dismay it appears there is once more a jewelry thief in their midst during the festive season.

Thoroughly delightful Christmas novella. The writing is just as enjoyable as one of the full novels and while the mystery is on the fluffy side, it's exactly right for a book set at Christmas. Does contain mild spoilers for the previous books in the series so should not be picked up out of order. ( )

Silent Night: A Lady Julia Christmas Novella – Raybourne

4 stars

Easy, diverting, entertaining; this is a humorous Christmas visit for fans of Raybourne’s Lady Julia series. All of the usual characters
with their accompanying menageries are present for holiday festivities at Bellmont Abbey. There’s a ghost, a theft and plenty of affectionate, private moments for Brisbane and Lady Julia. It was just fun, 4 stars worth of easy enjoyment.

This little novella isn't really a mystery at all; there's no murder to solve. There are odd goings on and of course we have Julia and Brisbane and Julia's family. It does take place at Christmas, so there is the draw of the holiday.

Overall, it was a gentle story that let me spend time with a couple of my favorite characters. It's really only for series fans, though. ( )

Julia and Brisbane spend another Christmas at her family's home (originally visited in Silent in the Sanctuary. Once again, ghosts are at play, only this time less murderous. The mystery is pretty thin, but Julia's family is as wonderfully eccentric as before, making for a delightful read. A fun choice for the holidays. ( )

"After a year of marriage--and numerous adventures--Lady Julia and Brisbane hope for a quiet, intimate Christmas together--until they find themselves at her father's ancestral estate, Bellmont Abbey, with her eccentric family and a menagerie of animals. Nevertheless, Julia looks forward to a lively family gathering--but amongst the celebrations, a mystery stirs.
