Pepper Basham: The Mistletoe Countess

 By Kelly Bridgewater

Will the magic of Christmas bring these two newlyweds closer together, or will the ghosts of the past lead them into a destructive discovery from which not even a Dickens’s Christmas can save them?

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 Thoughts:

The Mistletoe Countess by Pepper Basham is a treat for booklovers and romance lovers. How many readers wish they could use the skills that they read about and chase down a bad guy? Or fall in love with the dashing hero? This is exactly what Basham does in her story. Grace is reader with her head in the books and sees mystery and romance around every corner. The plot features a number of many twists and turns that really held my attention. The story features a mystery that needs to be uncovered in order to bring happiness back to the Manor. Grace is just the woman to do that. The hero has to overcome some of his own flaws and hurts in order to open his heart to love from Grace. The hunt for the mystery was my favorite part. Plus, I did enjoy watching Grace and the hero fall in love as the story progressed. A definite keeper for the shelf.

I received a complimentary copy of The Mistletoe Countess  by Pepper Basham from Barbour Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating:  5 out of 5 stars
