Mundungus Fletcher always seems to surround himself in nothing but trouble. Loved the glimpse into the relationship between Mark and Lavender! Greatly looking forward to seeing how this story ends!

Author's Response: He does, his idea of easy money seems to involve a lot of hard work.
The Mark/Lavender romance is mostly told in Moon, Brown, Troth, and Moons. This story fits between Brown and Troth.

Wow, that certainly was an interesting beginning! I love the way the boys talk! They definitely sound like little kids.

Author's Response: Thanks. It's been a while since my boys were that small, but I tried to keep the dialogue right. -N-

Decided to re-read this prior to reading "New Year's Eve". Glad I did; it was really worth it. There's a bunch of your other ones I should probably read again during the holiday break.

Author's Response: Thanks. I shouldn’t have favourites of my own stories, but I think I achieved everything I wanted to in this story: humour, family, the spirit of Christmas, a bit of romance, and the appearance of the man with the beard. -N-

Magical Fenick's windows! Very cleverly done :)

Author's Response: :-D
Well spotted. Fenwick's of Newcastle, established on Northumberland Street in 1882 and still family owned.

Having gone back to your bio I realise you are an Englishman who lives near Scotland..but still I go by what I said in my last review...your scots it spot on:) And after reading all the reviews for chapter one I've decided I obviously have ample access to fish suppers because all it created in my mind was vinyl wipe clean table covers, cafe glasses, thin unshiny cutlery but good food, oh such good food!

I sense that Lavender is good at what she does and that Mark isn't used to working undercover! It makes me wonder if he usually wears a to say I'm one of these people who cant spont an unmarked police car or undercover policeman to save myself! I like to think that it's because I'm very innocent and have no need to be suspicious!

Author's Response: Thanks again. I forgot to say in my reply to the previous review. the only research I did showed that the Edinburgh Keilidh (with a K instead of a C) is a Hogmanay event held in Princes Street Gardens.
Regarding decor, the vinyl covers are, of course red (or blue) check.
Lavender is a well estalished character in my stories. I've writtten at least 6 stories where Lavender is lead character, Mark is in several stories, too, so they're both well-established in my mind. She's an Auror, Mark works for the Magical Law Office.

How lovely to find this story set in Edinburgh but what an absolute delight to have proper scots language in it....done perfectly....this either had to be VERY well researched or you're a Scot like me:)
(although its ceilidh not keilidh...unless this is a special wizzarding one!)

The ending caught me by surprise and made me laugh...not the robbery I was expecting!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
The scots language isn't difficult for me. My location (as you've dscovered) helps (Edinburgh 100 miles, London 300 miles). I regularly travel over the border, and at work I sit next do a Scot (who thinks that most things in life are pish) :-D.

I've just finished reading all three chapters and find this story worthy of my "Must Read Each Year" Christmas List. It's bound to join the ranks of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" and O. Henry's "Gift of the Magi" as stories to foster the Christmas spirit. Thanks for writing such a delightful tale and including more of your great characters besides the Potter family.

Have a very happy holiday.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, and the kind words. I tried to capture something of the magic of Christmas. I'm pretty certain that Mark will be back in another story very soon, as will Miss Brown. -N-

Well done, you. Yay! The mystery is solved and more. Thank you for cheering me up big time! What a joy to read.

Author's Response: Thanks, glad you liked it. This last chapter took longer to finish than I expected. I blame Lavender. -N-

Wonderful. And perfect for the season. I loved Saint Nicholas.

Author's Response: Thanks - but his name was Nicholas Sant, wasn't it? ;-D -N-
