The Ordeal of the Haunted Room (Chronicles of St. Mary's, #11.5)The Ordeal of the Haunted Room by Jodi Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lite on the time travel, except for the blindingly obvious, light on the humor, which still manages to be perfectly normal, this Xmas St. Mary's short story DOES happen to be heavy on the Cozy Mystery. Victorian Cozy, even!

The light-hearted touch has all the tones of Marple with a great psych-out, but I think it was the gothic atmosphere that stole the day.

It was definitely a change from the normal Xmas story, but not unpleasant.
