The Quinton Case : It’s nearly Christmas, and Janet and Joan Markham have been looking forward to having Doveby House to themselves for a fortnight. Joan promised not to book any guests into the bed and breakfast through Christmas and New Year. When Joan gets a letter from a distant cousin who wants to visit, though, the sisters can’t bring themselves to turn him away.

Roland Dickerson turns out to be a fairly unpleasant man who expects to be entertained during his visit. While the sisters do their best, they feel considerably less hospitable when Roland informs them that before he arrived he’d discovered a newer will written by the sisters’ great-aunt Mildred. Janet and Joan had used the money they’d inherited from Mildred to buy Doveby House.

When Roland’s solicitor, Eldridge Quinton, arrives, he and Roland suggest a settlement that would see the sisters paying their cousin far more than they can easily afford.

But is Roland truly their distant cousin? Is the newly discovered will actually genuine? Will the man’s visit ruin Christmas for the sisters, or can their friends help them out of a difficult situation?

“Yes, I see her on here,” Janet said. “It’s odd that there were six children originally and over time all of the lines seem to have died out. Aside from you and me and Roland, there isn’t anyone else left.”

“Unless Roland is married and has children,” Joan suggested. “He didn’t mention a wife in his letter, but maybe he’s a widower.”

Janet shrugged. “If he has children, you’d think he would have put them on here, wouldn’t you?”

“Maybe, but whatever he did or didn’t do, he wants to come and visit. What should we do?”

“I don’t want him here, not at Christmas, but there isn’t any nice way to tell him that, is there?”

“Not really. He is family, after all,” Joan said slowly. “The letter came yesterday and I’ve been trying to think of a polite way to tell him not to come ever since.”

“Maybe you could tell him that we’re going away for Christmas,” Janet suggested.

“I’m not going to lie to him.”

“So let’s go away for Christmas. Maybe we could go and see Bessie on the Isle of Man.”

“I don’t want to go away for Christmas. I want to stay here and celebrate with our friends.”
