Christmas Eve, the night of the most prestigious event of the year in the tiny southern town of Sparrow Falls, North Carolina. Morwenna Goss, the mysterious story keeper of the old Scottish burying ground, invites guests to dine at the beautiful old family manor house. Guests vary from the proud to the humble, the wealthy to the poor, and as one visitor puts it, "something is bound to happen!" On this night, all eyes are upon a rare and valuable emerald necklace desired by every guest, but for very different reasons. When the priceless gem vanishes right before their eyes, who among those present could have dared to steal it? Spunky senior sleuth Tilda and irrepressible young Addie set out to find the answer before the clock strikes twelve in this short story based upon the Sparrow Falls Mystery series.

a very merry mystery indeed
This is a really fun series, I enjoy all of the Sparrow Falls books. Well written, entertaining characters, with a nice, light mystery. No swearing, sex or gore. I hope the author sees these reviews, and would please ..... STOP reminding us every other page how "spry" the character is.
It's a very quick read but interesting.
