When CLARA CHAPMAN receives an intriguing invitation to spend Christmas at an English manor home, she is hesitant yet compelled to attend—for if she remains the duration of the twelve-day celebration, she is promised a sum of one thousand pounds. That’s enough money to bring her brother back from America and reinstate their stolen family fortune. But is she walking into danger? It appears so, especially when she comes face to face with one of the other guests—her former fiancé, BENJAMIN LANE.
Imprisoned unjustly, Ben wants revenge on whoever stole his honor. When he’s given the chance to gain his freedom, he jumps at it—and is faced with the anger of the woman he stood up at the altar.
Brought together under mysterious circumstances for the Twelve Days of Christmas, Clara and Ben discover that what they've been striving for isn't what ultimately matters. What matters most is what Christmas is all about . . . love.
This book was so fun!! It started off with getting to know they 2 main characters and then kinda went into this almost who done it story. No one was murdered but that wasn’t for lack of someone trying.
I loved the mystery aspect of it….who invited them to bleakly manor and who was the one who was trying to slowly get people who were there to leave for one reason or another.
I do want to know where the other characters came from but maybe we will find out in the next book and if not it’s not that big of a deal
