"The Christmas Knot: A Slightly Gothic Regency Mystery Romance Novella" by Barbara Monajem

My Thoughts...

A historical 'Gothic' romance with a ghost story that had a little bit of romance, curse, mystery, murder, suspense and forgiveness. Add to that lovable children[Lizzie and John] during this wonderful Christmas time and the reader gets a good read. Will this widowed lady that had lost her inheritance, now a governess in a haunted house be able to work for this Lord who just happened to be her former lover? What was up with this treasure [necklace] that was hunted? Why was this necklace [mysterious jewels] so important in this read in this Ballister curse on the first born son? Will Edwina be able to solve this mystery with all of its twists?

Be ready for some ghost as one will see how the house was haunted. I liked how these former lovers [two main characters... Edwina and Richard] who had separated due to a misunderstanding [deceit] and years later comes together again giving the reader as quite a interesting heart warming read. Will they be able to rediscover their lost love? To get all of these questions answered and more the reader will have to pick up this good read to see how well this author will bring out this enjoyable read.

Would I recommend this Christmas novella? Yes!

Between a Rake and a Hard Place by Connie Mason and Mia Marlowe
Between a Rake and a Hard Place - Connie Mason,Mia Marlowe

I'm a big fan of this series and of Connie Mason and Mia Marlowe's collaborations. The rakes are properly rakish and the heroines are not obnoxious. I was really a bit leery of Jonah at the start because he came off as a bit of a sneaky snake but I grew to like him and Serena was as normal and likable as a heroine can get.

 

P.S. I am really curious about Connie Mason's older books. My mother has most of them and I am wondering if I should pick them up. I am in the mood for old school bodice rippers.

Review:

"A Bride For Christmas" by Aileen Fish was a beautiful told romantic historical short story. "A Bride For Christmas" was what you can call a 'sweet and clean read.' The two main characters Nash and Julianna were well delivered, developed and oh so colorful. I did enjoy how this author was able to bring out many all of the descriptive details in this good read. We find both Nash and Julianna are surrounded by 'happily wedded siblings, with their children and even their parents who loved each other'....could this happen to them? It seems like the heroine wasn't interested in marriage but how about this hero? This is where I say you must pick up this good read to see for yourself how this author will bring it all out to the reader. It will be a beautiful as well as a delightful twist that will leave a smile on your face. Would I recommend? Yes!
