A Christmas escape by Anne Perry
"For countless readers, Christmastime means a delicious new holiday mystery from New York Times bestselling author Anne Perry.

Unfortunately, there's no holiday cheer to be found among his fellow guests, who include a pompous novelist, a stuffy colonel, a dangerously ill-matched married couple, and an ailing old man. The one charming exception is orphaned teenager Candace Finbar, who takes Charles under her wing and introduces him to the island's beauty.

Then events take an even darker turn: A body is found, and Charles quickly realizes that the killer must be among the group of guests.
