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