    1. This book contains two of Perry's Victorian Christmas novellas--numbers five and six in the series. The first, A Christmas Beginning, has Superintendent Runcorn enjoying a Christmas holiday on the Isle of Anglesey in Wales. He is charmed by its remoteness and peacefulness. But that peace is shattered when he stumbles over the bloodied body of the vicar's sister in the graveyard. His expertise is called upon to help the local constabulary solve the case. The mystery is intriguing, with just a few [...]


    2. I've never been a fan of mysteries, but I am becoming a fan of Anne Perry. So far I've only read some of her Christmas novels and Tathea, a fantasy. I enjoy the Victorian settings of her Christmas stories and I like the way she writes. A Victorian mystery is going to have drama of course, but she doesn't go overboard, at least not in the ones I've read. I'd like to get started on one of her series, which include a series about Detective William Monk and another about Detective Thomas Pitt, both [...]


    3. This book has two stories about characters from each of two of her Victorian series, set in new locations. I enjoyed the first one, A Christmas Beginning, better than A Christmas Grace because the setting had a logic (Sup. Runcorn going to Anglesey for Christmas to go somewhere new and free his friends from a possible perceived obligation to entertain him) that the other lacked (a long ignored and now dying aunt wants someone to solve a 7 year old mystery in a Connemara village and calls on a ni [...]



    4. This is not the best that Anne Perry has to offer. I am a big fan of her Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, however. I could not visualize some of these characters, especially the main character, Mr. Runcorn. This was set in the 1800's, and everyone is a suspect, from the dead woman's brother, the vicar, to her sister-in-law, to the numerous men who fell in love with her, the ones whom she rejected because she wanted to have a freer life. She didn't want to be pigeon-holed into a marriage where s [...]


    5. A little slow movingThis was an easy read that was entertaining. It moved a little slow, taking a while to get to the mystery and any real clues. I enjoyed it, but wouldn't call it a page turner


    6. These stories are not very Christmassy if a reader is looking for a cozy, festive book. Both stories do, however, take place during Christmas time. Beautiful descriptions of both locations, one in Anglesey and the other on the west coast of Ireland.


    7. the first story had no 'life' in it. it was drab. i can usually get visuals when i read, but this one was lacking. the second story was better. i could definitely form scenes in my mind. they story itself, although better than the first, was just O.k. for me.



    8. Two more Victoria Christmas stories from Anne Perry though neither of them are particularly uplifting. A Christmas Grace takes place in Ireland with Emily Radley (who is Perry's Thomas Pitt's sister-in-law) attending her dying aunt who had been estranged from the family. There is a shipwreck with one survivor who turns the villagers in on themselves, stirring up old memories and suspicions about a survivor from a wreck a few years before, a survivor who later on died, probably at the hand of one [...]


    9. Thought these were supposed to be Christmas stories but really weren't except for the time of year being December. The first story was like a bad game of Clue; hard to muddle through. The second story build up was more interesting.BUT, these were "Victorian" in setting and in each story there was an awkward two or three sentences of one character asking if another was homosexual what was that about?!


    10. Okay, I didnt finish it. I simply couldnt get interested in the first story. it seemed to involve the lead character doing a lot of walking all over the place and referring to a character in one of the author's other series (which I did not read) so the reference was completely lost on me.I did enjoy the first 4 in the series so I might try some of the later books another time.


    11. The first story is much better than the second. With storylines much thinner than her novels these tales move quickly over the surface, but with characters you may know from her other novels they manage to hold up.


    12. Two great Christmas storiesBoth stories show off Perry's skill as a storyteller that keep you guessing, while being infused with the message of Christmas.



    13. I'm a big Anne Perry fan and these Christmas novellas have an air of redemption and Grace about them, which makes them one of my favorites.




    14. Gives you a chance to see some minor characters in close-up. I particularly liked the one with Runcorn, which was a very human view of a very prickly character.
