The Mistletoe Countess by Pepper D. Basham

 

Mistletoe is beautiful and dangerous, much like the woman from Lord Frederick’s Percy’s past, so when he turns over a new leaf and arranges to marry for his estate, instead of his heart, he never expects the wrong bride to be the right choice. Gracelynn Ferguson never expected to take her elder sister’s place as a Christmas bride, but when she’s thrust into the choice, she will trust in her faithful novels and overactive imagination to help her not only win Frederick’s heart but also to solve the murder mystery of Havensbrook Hall before the ghosts from Frederick’s past ruin her fairytale future.

My Review


 This was a warm hearted, delightful read, and quickly became a page turner.

Can you imagine being born with a silver spoon in your mouth, America with money, and being raised to marry English Royalty for a title, well, one of the Ferguson sister is ready to do so!

The author did such a wonderful job with this story, we are gifted with a blind marriage, a journey to togetherness, and with never a dull moment, attempts on their lives. Also be on the look out for some ghosts, can their be more? Oh yes, and you won't want to leave the lives of Grace and Frederick!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
