A Christmas Tail: A Regency Holiday Mystery

Hillari Deschane

A mute child's bond with a unique Siamese cat uncovers an old tragedy--and rouses a murderous ghost. Widowed Charlotte Hayward hopes Christmas in tiny Hawkshead village will build memories for her son Thomas, and a safer life. But Thomas soon resumes his nightly wanderings, only to be rescued by Lucian Pierce, Charlotte's first love though not the man she married. Thomas no sooner bonds with Lucian's cat Flora and her kittens than the kittens are stolen away and Lucian is accused of not just one murder, but two. When Charlotte returns home, Lucian sees past his old pain toward hope of a new future with the only woman he ever loved-and the child is is coming to love as his own. Then the ghost of the legendary Tarn Widow stirs to vengeful life, casting the shadow of the gallows over Lucian's hopes as he sees Charlotte's fears: if Lucian is innocent, why is the ghost hounding him? Or is it the little feline family the ghost is after, and what old wrong could be righted by killing them?Can young Thomas and his feline friends stop the ghost of the Tarn Widow from taking her murderous revenge, and prevent an innocent man from hanging?
