A glass ornament. Love letters tied in red Christmas ribbon. Lily Morningstar and British antiquities expert Andrew Stapleton are drawn into a family secret that binds their hearts together.
While you admire this gorgeous cover, please enjoy something sweet. Like plum pudding and someone who looks a lot like Viscount Harwood!
Deb's plum pudding!
Our waiter is carefully juggling lovely cups of creamy hot cocoa.
And we are carefully juggling our dropped jaws at the sight of the waiter. (Please let me know if I have a whipped cream mustache.)
Could this be our soldier Tristam?
Okay, now I'm completely confused about what I was doing, and there is a plate of plum pudding with warm nutmeg sauce dripping all over my taffeta!

More about C.J.:
Award-winning author C.J. Chase left the corporate world to stay home with her children and quickly learned she did not possess the housekeeping gene. She decided to make writing her excuse for letting the dust bunnies accumulate under the furniture. When she is not writing, you will find C.J. gardening, watching old movies, playing classical piano (badly), teaching a special needs Sunday school class, or pretty much anything else that will excuse her from cleaning house. Visit her dirt-free home-on-the-web at www.cjchasebooks.com.
