This one is different - not your classic warm Christmas tale. It's more of a family intrigue that comes to a climax around the holidays, and the common links are pieces of antique jewelry. Almost returned it without reading as so many Christmas ones come out at the same time and sometimes you have to choose which ones to prioritize, but glad to have kept it on the stack and recommend if you like antiques and family mysteries.
