Dec Club Read: A Christmas Surprise

December 11, 2016

Hello and welcome to the blog tour for 'A Christmas Surprise', a festive regency romance novella by Emily Murdoch. This book has been the book club read for the month of December and we organised a readalong and Twitter chat to discuss the book as we read.
Thanking Emily and all the wonderful bloggers at #WYbclub for the lovely experience working on this tour, I would like to get started by introducing the book and the author.

The Book

A Christmas Surprise by Emily Murdoch
Every year for thirty years Lord Robert, the Viscount of Marchwood, throws a Christmas Ball.
But this year the Marchwood Christmas Ball holds extra importance.
His daughter, Lady Audrey, has just turned eighteen, and it is time for her to be introduced into society.
It is Audrey’s first, best, and potentially only chance of securing a husband.
Especially seeing as there are rumours that the Marchwood money is running dry.
But headstrong Lady Audrey is not sure she wants a husband.
Ever since her mother died she has been left to her own devices.
Though she is very close to her father, it was often the servants she turned to for companionship,
particularly Thomas, who, five years older than her, was always the person she depended on for
She is not ready to leave everything she knows, and the thought of abandoning her father breaks her heart.
She is determined that only someone truly special will take her away from her home.
But with the ball centred around a masquerade theme, everyone is in disguise.
And a handsome stranger threatens to steal Audrey’s heart.
Could he hold the key to her heart?
And when she unmasks him will it be a good, or bad, Christmas Surprise?
‘A Christmas Surprise’ is a festive regency romance novella.
