Charming and beautifully crafted
If you've read and enjoyed the first four books of this series, I'm pretty sure you'll find this story is a delightful gift. Each of the four brothers gets a piece of the action, although it mainly revolves around Ian and his idiosyncracies (and you do need to have read "The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie" in order to "get it").
Jennifer Ashley does an noteworthy job of crafting a Christmas story that advances the characters and doesn't feel like a tacked-on "holiday special." It even has moments with the more minor characters--Daniel Mackenzie, Inspector Fellowes, and the MacBride brothers--that foreshadow books to come in the series.
Angela Dawe isn't my favorite narrator, but she suits this series, and has definitely captured the distinct personalities of each of the four brothers.

Nice add-on story
Originally I thought it a waste to read it I'll admit. But it was like sitting with a friend over coffee and talking about how their Christmas was. It is a great showing of how much Ian has improved, how everyone is currently doing and a good lead-in to the books to come. If you are looking for the romance mixed with assassins then you will be disappointed, but if you want to get caught up with an old friend, it's a great listen/read. I love both narrators in this series and that they have a way of making each main character have their own voice. Onto the next book and next until the end of the series... I'll miss them when I'm done, but keep them in my wish list to listen to again when I need a good listen I've heard before.
