When her parents die from fever, Lady Sarah Montgomery Baird Watson-Wentworth has to leave India, a land she was born and raised in, and travel to England for the first time. Finding it almost impossible to adjust to London society, Sarah flees to the county of Cheshire and the country estate of Grangeback that borders the village of Stickleback Hollow. A place filled with oddballs, eccentrics and more suspicious characters than you can shake a stick at, Sarah feels more at home in the sleepy little village than she ever did in the big city; however, even sleepy little villages have mysteries that must be solved.
The 12 days of Christmas in Stickleback Hollow are 12 short stories that take place over the 12 days of Christmas in the small village which is the home of so many mysteries. Each of the stories follows different characters from the series and do not play a part in the overall story arc. This particular book has been put together to raise money for two charities – The Broad Appeal and the Trent Bridge Community Sports Trust. As so many of the characters are named after cricketers, it seemed only fitting to use this charity book to raise money for two charities connected with the sport.
