Following nine full-length Lady Emily Victorian-era mysteries (see the review of The Counterfeit Heiress on p. 87), this e-original novella finds Emily and her husband, Colin, back in England. The Hargreaves have been summoned to the family home for Christmas by Emily's mother, Lady Bromley, who will be hosting Indian royalty. When their guests' royal jewels go missing and some are found in Emily's room, the couple will have to put their sleuthing skills to good use to prevent a diplomatic incident.
VERDICT A holiday treat for Lady Emily fans.
