Overview

Martin Walker has created a delightful, internationally acclaimed series of mysteries featuring Bruno, chief of police of the small French village of St. Denis.
 
“A gentle reminder to slow down and smell the grapes” says The New York Times Book Review.
 
 
In this exclusive eBook, St. Denis is experiencing its coldest winter in years—bringing the promise of snow and shared chocolats chauds in the village’s cafés—and Bruno is occupied with his Christmastime duties. From organizing carolers to playing Father Christmas for the local schoolchildren, Bruno has his hands full . . . at least until some funds raised for charity go missing. Then it’s up to Bruno to save the day (and perhaps manage a Christmas miracle) in this charming holiday installment of Walker’s best-selling series.


Bonus material! Martin Walker is often asked by his readers for vacation recommendations in the area where his best-selling series is set. In "A Perfect Weekend in Perigord," Walker shares his itinerary for an ideal vacation in this picturesque region.

This edition includes an excerpt from Martin Walker's The Resistance Man

Typically short christmas story by nook standards that seldom mentions that story means a short story not a novella or a novel and since under three are usuallynovellas and novellas short stories you have little truth in ads for any nook offerings
