First place - Unexpected Gifts by Alyson Hilbourne
We enjoyed the read which was full of tension, and our interest was maintained throughout to the very good, unexpected end. We thought the plot was an unusual idea with the transitions between each Christmas well-handled.

Second Place - Christmas Fayre by Brian Lux http://www.brianlux.co.uk/
We thoroughly enjoyed this story involving a country house, deep snow, policeman = mystery, ie all traditional ingredients. It was a creepy and well-written story with an economic style. It was consistently good, but well done in the first few paragraphs where the whole thing was set up nicely.
Third Place - After Boxing Day by Felicity Cousins www.linkedin.com/in/felicitycousins
We thought this a beautifully written story with some wonderful imagery. It had tension and suspense and definitely felt Christmassy. Neat/clever plot, very human and touching in parts. A terrific end.
First Place 12-16 years category - And a Partridge in a Pear Tree by Alice Cattley
We thoroughly enjoyed this gripping read. Our interest was maintained from start to finish with the mysterious and creepy happenings and the sinister ending was a treat.
