I actually didnt realize that this was also a Christmas story. What can I say, Eve having to solve a mystery of a man she already put behind bars, was different, and I think that the fact that she was so close to some of the victims, made everything worse. Kinda sad that we didnt get as many of my favorite characters, but this was just a novella. I'm happy to have been able to finish the entire thing at work in one day. Can't wait for the next book.
