My Christmas Gift to my Readers: A New Sophie Sayers Christmas Story

Each Christmas for the last three years, I have enjoyed taking part in Helen Hollick’s “Story Song” blog series, which is a bit like an advent calendar of stories.

Every day between 1st and 24th December, she posts a new story by a different author. Each story is inspired by a song, and readers are invited to guess the song by reading the story. You can read all of the stories on her blog completely free of charge.

This year, my contribution is a new Sophie Sayers short story set at Christmas, called The Secret Ministry of Frost.

It also features some characters from my St Bride’s School novel series.

  • Will you be able to guess the song by the end of the story?
  • Award yourself a bonus point if you have already recognised the poem that the title comes from!

***Please feel free to share the link to the story with anyone who might enjoy it.***

The third novel in the Sophie Sayers Village Mysteries series is set at Christmas

Although my Sophie Sayers Village Mysteries series includes a novel set at Christmas (Murder in the Manger), the cosy world of Sophie’s Cotswold village, Wendlebury Barrow, is a rich source of festive stories, and I plan to write enough to fill a little book with them in time for Christmas 2022. More news on that nearer the time!

In the meantime, I wish you a merry Christmas, with lots of good books under your Christmas tree, and a new year filled with peace, joy and love.
