Happy Holiday Season to All! I’m here with a book review and giveaway for you. This post is part of the amazing Beauty and Book group that I belong to. Today we’re giving away another book by the wonderful author Jenna Jaxon. It’s a great time for this Christmas book too! This book is part of Ms Jaxon’s series called “The Widow’s Club” and it’s the latest addition (book 5 of 5). The series is about a group of friends who were widowed after Waterloo. The books in the series can be read in order you choose or they can be read alone. You can read my review of book number 4 in the series in this post.
About the author:
“Jenna Jaxon is a best-selling author of historical romance, writing in a variety of time periods because she believes that passion is timeless. She has been reading and writing historical romance since she was a teenager. A romantic herself, Jenna has always loved a dark side to the genre, a twist, suspense, a surprise. She tries to incorporate all of these elements into her own stories.”
This book is described as follows:
“The death of her husband has thrown Lady Maria Kersey’s future into doubt – and her heart into the arms of a man she cannot have. But Christmas with the Widows’ Club will bring choices – and surprises – that may change all her holidays to come . . .
Maria just gave birth to her first child, a beautiful daughter—but the event is shrouded in sorrow. A month earlier, Maria’s husband, Lord Kersey, was killed in a duel under compromising circumstances. Worse, Maria’s failure to provide a male heir has stripped her of any hope of an inheritance. Scorned by the ton, one of her few allies is her late husband’s steward, Hugh Granger. Hugh is everything her husband was not—warm, charming—and penniless. . . .
Hugh has fallen desperately in love with Maria, but has little to offer but comfort. As their attraction becomes impossible to resist, Maria flees to London to spend Christmas with her dearest friends, a group of widows who lost their own husbands in the Battle of Waterloo. Little does she know the holidays will reveal a twist of fate she never expected—proving that the greatest Christmas gift is the magic of true love . . .”
I’m about halfway done with the book and am really enjoying it. It’s a historical romance that keeps me turning the pages. I think you’ll feel the same way that I do about it when you get a chance to read it. For the previous book that I read from the series, I listened to it on Audible and I thought it was a fun way to enjoy the book.
Now let’s look at the items that are offered in this Christmas gifting!
One person will win:
- a copy of Jenna Jaxon’s book The Widow’s Christmas Surprise
