Blog Blasts from the Past for Christmas

This is, astonishingly, the tenth Christmas since I started writing this irregular blog about Sherlock Holmes in 2011. Here are some of my favorite Yuletide blog posts that I think are worth another look:    

2012: Compliments of the Season: https://bakerstreetbeat.blogspot.com/2012/12/compliments-of-season.html

2013: Christmas at Baker Street: https://bakerstreetbeat.blogspot.com/2013/12/christmas-at-baker-street.html   

2014: Some Sherlockian Christmas Reading: https://bakerstreetbeat.blogspot.com/2014/12/some-sherlockian-christmas-reading.html

2015: A (Henry) Baker’s Dozen Books for Christmas: https://bakerstreetbeat.blogspot.com/2015/11/a-henry-bakers-dozen-of-books-for.html

2015: The Sound of a Canonical Christmas: https://bakerstreetbeat.blogspot.com/2015/12/the-sound-of-canonical-christmas.html

2015: A Blue Christmas: https://bakerstreetbeat.blogspot.com/2015/12/a-blue-christmas.html

2018: Henry Baker’s Christmas: https://bakerstreetbeat.blogspot.com/2018/12/henry-bakers-christmas.html

Many of those posts deal in one way or another with holiday reading. That makes me think of my 2019 Sebastian McCabe – Jeff Cody mystery novel, Too Many Clues. It is set at Christmas and features a subplot in which both Mac and a robber play Santa. There’s a holiday office party scene in the book that makes me a little weepy-eyed when I re-read it. Mac also played Santa in “Santa Crime,” one of the stories in my book Rogues Gallery. Both books are available in paperback and e-book ediitons.
