Arabella Dempseyâ€™s dear friend Jane Austen warned her
against teaching. But Miss Climpsonâ€™s Select Seminary for
Young Ladies seems the perfect place for Arabella to claim
her independence while keeping an eye on her younger sisters
nearby. Just before Christmas, she accepts a position at the
quiet girlsâ€™ school in Bath, expecting to face nothing more
exciting than conducting the annual Christmas recital. She
hardly imagines coming face to face with French aristocrats
and international spiesâ€¦
Reginald â€śTurnipâ€ť Fitzhughâ€”often mistaken for the elusive
spy known as the Pink Carnationâ€”has blundered into danger
before. But when he blunders into Miss Arabella Dempsey, it
never occurs to him that she might be trouble. When Turnip
and Arabella stumble upon a beautifully wrapped Christmas
pudding with a cryptic message written in French, â€śMeet me
at Farley Castleâ€ť, the unlikely vehicle for intrigue
launches the pair on a Yuletide adventure that ranges from
the Austensâ€™ modest drawing room to the awe-inspiring estate
of the Dukes of Dovedale, where the Dowager Duchess is
hosting the most anticipated event of the year: an elaborate
12-day Christmas celebration. Will they find poinsettias or
peril, dancing or danger? And is it possible that the fate
of the British Empire rests in Arabella and Turnipâ€™s hands,
in the form of a festive Christmas pudding?
