This short story was on sale for only 49 cents at the end of November so I had to get it. Who can resist a mystery about The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding? Plus, it’s an Agatha Christie so I simply had to.
Mr Jesmond, with a foreign prince, visits H. Poirot to request that he search for a lost ruby. So Mr Jesmond invites H. Poirot to spend an old-fashioned Christmas in the English countryside.
After some cajoling, Monsieur Poirot is convinced to spend Christmas at Kings Lacey. So off he went.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, Hercule Poirot discovers where the ruby is and who stole it. Plus, the story details what is involved in an old-fashioned Christmas and what it is not.
The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding is NOT available on Kindle Unlimited. It’s a Christmas short story, so it is a great one to pick up to help you finish your reading challenge. It is only 65 pages so a very quick read. The story first appeared in a magazine.
