The Christmas Knot: A Slightly Gothic Regency Mystery Romance Novella By: Barbara Monajem
"Widowed and destitute, Edwina White takes a position as governess in a remote village in the north of England—in a haunted house. She’s so desperate that she’ll take anything, and besides, she doesn’t believe in ghosts. Little does she know that her new employer is the seducer who lied and deceived her many years ago.
Sir Richard Ballister inherited an estate with a ghost and a curse, and every governess he hires leaves within a week. Finally, a woman desperate enough to stay arrives on his doorstep—but she’s the seductress who dropped him many years earlier for a richer man.
The last thing Richard and Edwina want is to work together, but they have no choice. Can they overcome the bitterness of the past in time to unravel a centuries-old knot and end the Christmas curse?
This novella was originally published in the boxed set, Captivated By His Kiss."
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!
