The Mischief of the Mistletoe, by Lauren Willig

  Book 67 of 60 Book Challenge, Book 1 of The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge

A Very Special Christmas Novel in the middle of a series about His Majesty’s Spies or something in Regency England.  Jane Austen herself makes an appearance (for no good reason that I can see).  Secret messages were hidden in pudding and a noc list of some sort has disappeared.  The baddies seem to think our heroine, a new young schoolteacher, has it.

This was heavier on the romance and lighter on the mystery than I had hoped, but our hero was the most charming thing.  And I really dig the idea of a full twelve days of Christmas holiday in the countryside.

    Such a lovely cover, very Victorian. I think I’d be disappointed to find this was heavier on the romance .
