This is as cosy a murder story as you can get - no sign of bodies or evidence - just hearsay repeated around town, and lots of conversation. So don't read this hoping for an intriguing mystery.

What's endearing is the replication of a historical event - a special ball - for an aged member of the community as a last tribute. And THAT is a good theme for a Christmas story!
