When a husband is needed by Christmas, a trusted slender volume for ensuring a merry match is indeed a gift! In this Regency delight from beloved, award-winning author Kate Moore, a spirited governess joins a gentleman spy on a daring mission: finding a mate for a jilted debutante—while drawing dangerously close to each other . . .
Behind her seemingly dependent role as an unpaid caretaker—of both children and dogs—Harriet Swanley has in fact astutely avoided a forced marriage. But hers is not the only secret under wraps: Charles Davenham is working covertly to unmask a Russian agent—until the younger sister he’s always protected comes to him, recently rejected and clutching The Husband Hunter’s Guide to London. The little handbook would be a godsend—if only the distraught girl didn’t mangle all of its good advice! If Harriet can help Charles find a love match for his sibling, perhaps, in this season of good tidings, a long-buried attraction can set their own hearts aflame . . .
Praise for The Husband Hunter’s Guide to London
  “Appealing protagonists and a slow simmering romance. An ideal choice for fans of traditional Regencies who enjoy the occasional dash of mystery.” –Library Journal

Will try with my simple words the extent to which I absolutely love this book! It is filled with mystery and suspense, spies, friendships, governess Harriet, her charges, friends like Octavia and Lady Luxborough, but especially Charles Davenham, Viscount Wynford, It has new friends, relatives, the hope and promise of love, the ups and downs of growing up - all of this while properly navigating London society. I was Immediately sucked into the lives of each and every character from the first chapter that I had to have hot tea and wear my shawl while finishing the story! I received an advanced reader copy from NetGalley in exchange for my volunteer for my volunteer review.

An enchanting story just right to put a smile on your face and warm your heart. A man searching for a spy. A governess who has more to offer than just her duties. A distressed young lady after being jilted has two people working together to find her a match. What more can you ask for?

The Christmas Husband Hunt is the fourth book in Kate Moore's Husband Hunter series. It stands alone just fine and dandy; in fact, it will whet your appetite for the first three books. This delightful Christmastime story will surely put you in the mood for some Christmas romance of your own. Harriet Swanley - formerly Lady Harriet - is a governess for a lovely family...and dog Catapult. She left home years ago when her brother wanted her to wed someone she refused to marry. Charles Davenham, Viscount Wynford, is working as a spy to unmask a Russian agent. His sister Octavia shows up in London and declares she must marry by Christmas, and is using The Husband Hunter's Guide to London as her guideline to finding one. Harriet is recommended to Charles by a friend to introduce Octavia to London society. Harriet's met Charles before, and she's grateful that he doesn't remember her. Will Charles unmask his spy? Will Octavia find a husband by Christmas, and will Harriet find a love of her own? Jump on into this fun story to find out! The romance of Harriet and Charles was actually very sweet. There was no insta-love here; instead, we had a lovely slow-burning attraction. The whole situation with the spy was lots of fun. You definitely know who it is, but the enjoyment is in the hunt for proof. Octavia's hunt for a husband was the perfect catalyst to bring Harriet and Charles together. What I most enjoyed about the story, though, were the snippets from The Husband Hunter's Guide. As the story progressed, we saw the correlation between Harriet's situation and the advice in the book. Outstanding Christmas romance! I received an ARC of this book courtesy of the publisher and NetGalley. I received no compensation for my review, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely my own.
