Lady Penelope s maid has gone missing, and she wants to find her She needs an investigator.Pierce Howe is an investigator, but he doesn t approve of Lady Penelope joining in his investigation though he rather likes Lady Penelope And he has a secret which Lady Penelope won t like when she finds out. 3.5 stars Nice little Regency romance, but nothing groundbreaking One complaint despite having Christmas in the title, not much Christmas stuff in here More like the story just happens to take place at Christmastime The focus wasfocused on the mystery plot.
