From the castle renovations (both those completed and those on the list) to the food to the wonderful characters, Christmas at Whitefriars is the perfect gift for fans of Elizabeth Camden.
Catch up with some fictional friends from Camden’s Empire State trilogy while spending time at the castle made famous from gourmet food labels.

Mary and Everett are opposites in so many ways but they quickly grow to appreciate them in each other. Kindhearted Mary loves her quiet country home and experiences severe anxiety when in the city. Manhattan dweller Everett is detail-oriented, focused on business, and a world traveler. Can love overcome the separation of their worlds?

Do yourself a favor and gift yourself this Christmas novella to cozy up with this holiday season.

"It can be frightening to step out into something new. I've been knocked down, but then comes the time to crawl back up onto your feet, start walking, then running, and don't stop until you get where you need to be."

Elizabeth Camden masterfully weaves history, especially the lesser known history, with beautifully crafted fiction in all of her books and this novella is another clear example of her superb storytelling that will draw you into the heart of 1912 Yorkshire, England. Fans of her writing will appreciate the return of characters from her Empire State series and continuation of food industry theme from her latest novel The Spice King.

Set in a crumbling castle and its estate in Whitefriars around Christmastime, the story depicts much beauty and awe of the surroundings and time period yet there is also fear as the American investor Everett comes to inspect the Whitefriars. Everett is a different kind of a hero, socially awkward and straight-laced and often too business-minded, but he falls hard for Mary. Mary, the caretaker of the estate, is sunshine and optimism but plagued by agorphobia. As Everett and Mary spend time with each other and Mary's extended family, they surprise themselves with new discoveries and growth.

If you enjoy historical fiction, you will so enjoy this sweet novella, even if you haven't read any of Elizabeth Camden's previous books. I received a copy of the book from the author/publisher and was under no obligation to post a positive review. All comments and opinions are solely my own. ( )
