The Mysterious Gift: Old Friends, Annoying Houseguests, & Christmas Ghosts
It was Christmas Eve when the power went out all across town…
…or most of town. Anne’s house still had power, running water, flushing toilets, and alcohol. Guess where all her friends came to celebrate the holidays?
But the evening is stretching on and everyone is bored. The only solution is an old British tradition…telling ghost stories!
A fun Christmas mystery story with supernatural elements in the tradition of Charles Dickens, John Dickson Carr, and Oscar Wilde.
