A New York Christmas Synopsis

New York, 1904. Jemima Pitt arrives in a city where new American money and old English aristocracy collide. She's here to chaperone her friend, Delphinia, who has crossed the ocean to marry one of New York's richest men, but Jemima discovers a secret that could destroy Phinnie's future. Drawn into the crisis, Jemima desperately wants to protect her friend. And she must use all her courage and wits to decide whom to trust, and how to thread her way through the snowy streets of this brash new city. A New York Christmas is the enthralling new festive tale from the master of Victorian mysteries.

A New York Christmas Press Reviews

'With its powerful message of responsibility and redemption - We need both to forgive and to be forgiven - it conveys a moral force in keeping with the season.'

-Wall Street Journal


'The tale is redolent with Victorian atmosphere, from the hypocritical snobbishness to the rigid social conventions of the time.'

-Tangled Web


'A bite-sized mystery that could be fitted in after your Christmas lunch.'

-Daily Telegraph


'Delightful ... The perfect gift for a whodunit addict who likes to curl up with a good book after Christmas lunch.'

-Oxford Times
