Because Lord Carsdale is determined to find the young poacher, Cherry's father sends her to her aunt's manor house where she is presented to society. But when Lord Carsdale appears at her aunt's manor as a guest for the Christmastide celebrations, Cherry must use all of her ingenuity to avoid his recognizing her as the young poacher, leading him on a very merry chase.
The story was interesting. The author is a good storyteller. Unfortunately, the book could use some more careful editing. Otherwise, I would have given this one 5 stars.
The daughter of the local vicar, Cherry, is also a poacher by night. She helps out the starving people of her small village by poaching animals from the land of the Earl of Sorrelgate Lodge. When the new Earl, Lord Carsdale, comes to visit his property, he catches Cherry red-handed at poaching on his land. Dressed as a young lad, Cherry is able to avoid captor, but her father decides to send her to her Aunt Lady Ashburn’s estate for safekeeping. As the heir intended, Cherry is more than dismayed when Lord Carsdale arrives for a Christmas house party. Will he recognize her as the poacher? Why do sparks seem to fly whenever they are together?
I enjoyed this novella immensely. Monica Fairview writes charming characters and completely captures the regency time period. I loved the character of Cherry. She was a spunky woman that cared about the people of her village enough to go against the law to care for them. I loved her Cinderella story of going from a genteel poor daughter of a vicar to the potential heiress of a rich aunt on a grand state. I also loved how Lord Carsdale was a Darcy like character with a haughty demeanor and certain prideful ideals that are misinterpreted by Cherry, similar to Elizabeth and Darcy. Setting the action during a regency Christmas house party was icing on the cake.
Overall, if you are looking for a wonderful enjoyable Christmas story, you will love A Merry Christmas Chase. It will appeal to all fans of a good, clean, light romantic story, especially fans of regency and Austen novels.
