A Winter Scandal by Candace Camp
A Winter Scandal is another book that has been in my TBR pile for at least a month. It is the first book written in a new series by Candace Camp. She is one of my favorite historical romance writers but this book just did not catch my attention like some of her previous books.
A Winter Scandal has a cast of character that sounds familiar. We start with Thea Bainbridge, the plain sister of the local Vicar. Add in Gabriel, Lord Morecombe, who just purchased a local manor and is visiting with some of his bachelor friends. And then there is Matthew, a delightful baby, who Thea finds in church abandoned in the manager that is out for the Christmas program. The baby has a pin belonging to Gabriel’s sister. The sister has been missing for over a year. So now we have a mystery that Gabriel and Thea need to solve. The mystery throws them together and attraction follows. There is also a cast of characters that can be featured in future books.
I have no complaints about the writing; the story line just did not click for me. I hope I will like the next one better.
