“The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle” by Arthur Conan Doyle

from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, this is one of the best known Christmas mystery stories extant. I’ve read it countless times and still love it. It’s the story of a Christmas goose that went awry and the theft of a valuable jewel.

    I haven’t read much by Arthur Conan Doyle but I have read this short story. I agree, it is a good one. I have lots of the Sherlock Holmes books on my shelves, I will dig in and read some of them. You have always recommended the short stories very hightly.

    I saw at Patti’s post that you have been ill. I hope you are improving and things get better.

    • Thank you Tracy, kinda been a rocky week-ten days, for Barbara and me both, since she has to put up with me and do all the “fixing”. But I’m feeling better today so things are improving. Holmes is always a go-to for me, so I’m stopping the Christmas ss anthology I was reading and going to rereading the book this story is from.

    My FFB for last week, MERRY MURDER, included “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle” by Arthur Conan Doyle. Clearly this is a Holiday favorite. Glad things are looking up for you.

    Good choice. I haven’t read a Holmes in a long time and I need to revisit him.

    Nice choice. Sorry you weren’t feeling well but glad you’re getting better.

    • The having a dead battery and dead microwave in a couple of days on top of being sick sure didn’t help. Thank God for Barbara going and buying replacements! I’m still a little slow, but mostly better. Pongo kept me company throughout.
