Just when you think these amazing stories can t get any better, Jodi pulls another rabbit out of the hat The St Mary s Christmas short story has become a Christmas tradition in my household Once the turkey is in the oven I settle down to see what mischief Max and co have managed to get themselves into This is a bittersweet tale as it also heralds the last jump for Major Ian Guthrie, St Mary s former Head of Security As usual this is a fast moving, full of twists and turns with some intriguing snippets of info about Markham and the introduction 2 new characters, whom I expect may have a part to play in the future.
I think this might have just become my new favourite St Mary s short.
A last jump and a fond farewell to a rather battered Major Guthrie and his partner who I m sure will pop into subsequent stories The intrigue about Markham is developedthough we re still left hanging on to find out who they are and what Markhams fate will be The introduction of two new characters to an already extensive cast list Pennyroyal and Lady Amelia and especially the ending of the story makes me wonder whether another spinoff series might be in the pipeline.
Once again it s Christmas and time for Max s illegal jump This time she s on a rescue mission to medieval Scotland, but others are there with their own plots in mind There is also a nod to Stephen Hawking New friends are met and a satisfactory conclusion is reached.
The perfect length for a Christmas morning read Loved it.
