Overview

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 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.

Meet the Author

After some years as a teacher, Dorte Hummelshoj Jakobsen has embarked on a new career as a writer of crime fiction. She lives in Denmark, near the North Sea, and she writes mysteries in English as well as her native language.

In 2010 she sold her first stories to American magazines and publishers. She set out writing some cosy mysteries and collections of short stories. Her most popular cosy is "Murder deLight" (also titled "The Cosy Knave") - a humorous and cosy novel featuring village constable Archibald Penrose and his plucky fiancée, the librarian Rhapsody Gershwin.

In 2012 she published her first serious psychological mystery, "Anna Märklin's Family Chronicles", a bestseller set in Denmark. "Anna Märklin" is a standalone, whereas Jakobsen's latest book, "North Sea Cottage" is the first in a planned series about the amateur detective and writer Tora Skammelsen from an isolated village in Jutland. The Tora Skammelsen series has been well received in Denmark, and more stories will be published soon.

Good old-fashioned Christmas stories. Clean and cosy, and rather funny. A must for fans of the author's Knavesborough series.
