On a shopping trip to Hamleys Toy Shop, a kind-hearted stranger gives Emilys son a Christmas crackerbut when he opens it to reveal a cryptic clue inside, Emily suspects theres more to the gift than Christmas cheer.

#gratefulreads #shortstory I got sidetracked while hosting #Litsypartyofone and have missed a few days. I‘m back on track now! I don‘t read many short stories, but I did order this holiday story featuring one of my favorite characters. I‘ll wait until closer to Christmas to read it, tho.
