Miranda Belmoore is known as a poor relation whom her family (cousins Felicity and Cecil) has been saddled with. Think Cinderella. Naval Captain Gerard (pronounced Je-rid in the U.K.) Foremont has had his knee badly damaged in an attack at sea, and has gone home to recover, and unfortunately being an eligible bachelor will find himself with numerous women throwing themselves at him during Christmastide (the Christmas season). However, when he runs into Miranda on his way to celebrate the holidays at the Belmoore’s estate, Wintrell Hall, he is reminded of his pleasant childhood days spent with Miranda and other children, and immediately offers his help to her. During the festivities, an enemy is lurking and seeking revenge at several turns. Lady Laura Wynwood and Solomon Drydale open the story, but are usually part of the background. When they do make appearances, I genuinely enjoy them. Laura is a strong woman of faith and has no problem saying outlandish things to gain the upper hand in a situation; very enjoyable. Sol is a bit of a mystery, but ready to lend a hand, and I look forward to seeing his character grow, and perhaps the two will even become more than friends.
Tea Moments: P.16 “So kind of you, Felicity said. Come inside out of this wind. There’s tea in the drawing room.
P.38 “He was rescued by the appearance of their evening tea, which also included an ornate silver punch bowl of wassail.”
Amusing Moment: P.20 “…others among the Belemoore’s had equated Miranda’s slowness of foot with slowness of mind, also. Probably because in moments like these, Miranda simply said nothing. It made others uncomfortable, which was why Miranda did it.”

Spinster's Christmas was not quite up to par with Prelude, but it is still a great book to curl up with on a cold winter evening with a hot mug of tea.
