It's Christmas again at St Mary's and time for Max's obligatory illegal jump. On this occasion, however, they're right up against it.A loaded gun has been left behind in Ancient Egypt, and it's up to them to retrieve it before anyone accidentally blows their own head off, thus affecting the timeline for centuries to come.
And as if that's not enough, someone (Max) has inadvertently poisoned Mr Markham. It's hot, they're running out of supplies, they can't find the gun and it's all going horribly wrong. Again.

Love that Jodi gives us a festive treat 😀 may St Mary's continue for many years to come. ( whilst awaiting the next book I'm going back to the beginning).
Great books. Enjoy
Short but very well written - and well narrated. Loved it! I can't wait for the next instalment, which will hopefully be full length.
I love the series and the fact that Jodie gives her .5 books out for free is extremely generous.
I have read this book out of sequence so there were some major spoilers in it and to be honest I was a bit baffled by the time line but it wasn't a major issue. The story itself was full of the usual fun, frolics, angst and mayhem.
A thoroughly good listen and expertly read by Zara Ramm.
As always this is a good listen. The story is easy to follow
It is full of the people that are in the rest of the books and it is good to hear how they manage to get from one problem to the next and nearly alaways come out in one peice.
I have goy nearly all Jodi Taylor's St Marys books and it is good to have the same voice to listen to.
As always this book made me laugh. There are some moments in the other books that bring a tear to my eye but not this time

Have just discovered Jodi Taylor and her Chronicles of St Mary's - started off with the short stories and can't wait to read more of these. Not my usual choice of book but thoroughly enjoyable and I'm very glad I tried them. A fun fast paced story with good narration.
You will enjoy this book even more if you already know and love the characters in the St Mary's series - Do yourself a favour and download these books. You won't regret it. They are moving, often funny, sometimes sweet, sometimes gory and I usually learn a bit of history into the bargain.
Zara Ramm is also the perfect choice for narrating these stories.
A free book is always nice to have though it could be something the listener does not like. This was not the case as I thoroughly enjoyed the book and it will have the side effect that I shall be buying more of the same series
"Fantastic for fans of the series"
I very rarely give short stories 5 stars but this one was absolutely perfect for what it was-- a small snippet of life at St. Mary's. Hilarious as usual. A great way to get me even more excited for the release of the next book in a few days. And it was free which makes it even better! A wonderful way for fans of the series to spend 1+ hours. (This is not meant for people who have not read any of this series yet. Don't start with this short story. Start with book 1. You won't be sorry.)
I enjoyed this short and believe it is one of the best of the series.
The third book in the series that I've read and although it is a free short story it is by far the best. Just plain fun! The plot is cohesive, the writing is decisive and it's free... you can't get any better than that. Thank you for this very pleasant Christmas gift 😄
"Witty and wonderful!"
The ongoing Jodi Taylor and Zara Ramm partnership continues, better with each story. The time-traveling denizens of St Mary's never fail to delight.
Love the series. Nice to sit back and enjoy. Catch myself giggling at their experiences. The characters are fun!
"Great short story"
I wasn't necessarily drawn back to the story and aching to listen more, but yet I really enjoyed it. I think that I didn't really have time to get to know the characters and appreciate the crisis in the short time it took to tell the story. It always takes a while to really care about the outcome in a given story. But, this story had a fascinating premise and made me want to read larger works about St Mary's and the historians working there. I really think you'll enjoy it as well.
Love St Mary's stories. Needed a break from the mayhem. This one is lovely and upbeat.
"Another Fine Story by Jodi Taylor"
An excellent story and love Zara Ramm's narration. Both do a fine job as usual.
"The usual "WONDERFUL "
author and reader are my favorites.
their ability to mix technology with wit , sarcasm with tenderness, love with sunburn, in places and times along with death and extraordinary situations and bring history to life
Well I've found a new, tasty series to gobble up! You'll enjoy this fun romp through time!
