RITA Winner for Regency Historical Romance
‘There seems to be a message written inside your Christmas pudding. And it’s in French. MEET ME AT FARLEY CASTLE, TOMORROW AFTERNOON. MOST URGENT.’
Her great friend Jane Austen warned her against accepting a position at Miss Climpson’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies. Nevertheless, just before Christmas, Miss Arabella Dempsey finds herself face to face with French aristocrats and international spies – and it’s all because of Reginald ‘Turnip’ Fitzhugh, often mistaken for the elusive spy the Pink Carnation, who has blundered across her path.
When Turnip and Arabella discover a cryptic French message inside a beautifully wrapped Christmas pudding, they are launched on a festive adventure – from Jane Austen’s modest house to the grand estate of the Dukes of Dovedale – and, perhaps, love blossoms along the way…
A delicious and exciting Christmas romance – an irresistible treat.
