Lily Bard heads home for the holidays.

Lily heads to her hometown of Bartley for her estranged sister?s Christmas Eve wedding. But there is something in the air besides holiday cheer?there?s murder. And Lily must work fast to clean up the messy case before her sister promises to love, honor, and obey a killer.

Reviews: Marianne (Australia) (2012/03/13):
Shakespeare’s Christmas is the third in the Lily Bard series by Charlaine Harris. It’s almost Christmas and Shakespeare’s endless tinny carols and tacky decorations are driving her crazy, but when Lily Bard has to return to her hometown of Bartley for her sister Varena’s Christmas Eve wedding, she is unenthusiastic. She loves her family but everyone in Bartley looks at her and remembers the traumatic events of seven years ago. Lily would much rather stay in her little cottage with Jack. In the midst of all the wedding preamble, Lily and Varena discover the local doctor and his nurse, bludgeoned to death at their surgery. Not much later, Jack turns up to see Lily, but also on a case: a baby was kidnapped eight years ago, and an anonymous tip has brought him to Hartley. One of the possible candidates for the abducted girl is Lily’s prospective niece, Anna: is her sister’s fiancé, Dill, a kidnapper? Are the murders of the doctor and nurse related? In this instalment, Lily: apprehends a purse snatcher; babysits five children; attends two wedding showers; goes riding with an old boyfriend; takes part in a Christmas Parade; becomes a Maid of Honour; buys some really nice clothes; belches a baby without shoulder protection and even cleans a few houses. Lily’s relationship with Jack takes a serious turn, and she proves, once again, that she can take care of herself. I look forward to Shakespeare’s Trollop.
