Another gem from Sofi Laporte! Frances Littleworth is expecting to spend Christmas alone at Miss Hilversham's Academy where she teaches. But a surprise guest-- a handsome man-- turns up in the middle of a snowstorm. Frances nurses him through his fever, and allows him to stay on as the new art teacher. Percy is smitten with Frances, and despite her resistance, she can't help but like him too. Things begin moving quickly, and beneath the mistletoe, Percy makes a vow. But Percy has secrets, and when Frances learns the truth, she believes the gulf between them is too wide to cross.
Sofi is one of my favorite Regency Romance authors and I couldn't wait to read this new holiday romance in her Wishing Well series. I loved the sweetness between Frances and Percy and their bonding over art, history, and Christmas pudding. Also, Frances' great-aunt Polly is a gem of a character! So funny! You definitely won't want to miss this adorable story
