The chance to spend a night ghost-hunting alone with Hudson Holmes at Brambleberry Manor seems like a dream come true for Ruby Watkiss.
Maybe, she thinks, this is their chance to get closer. But when mysterious goings-on start happening which have nothing to do with the spirit world, the pair are catapulted off on another sleuthing adventure. And as the snow starts to fall and emotions are rising at the Little Duck Pond Cafe, Ruby is faced with a double challenge.
Can she be braver than she's ever been, in order to rescue something very close to her heart?
And can she convince a distinctly 'bah-humbug' Hudson that Christmas really can be the most wonderful time of the year?
Ahhh, I can’t believe this was the last book in the Hudson and Ruby trilogy. I am not ready to not have a book about them. They are my favourite duo for sure.
A book on the slightly darker side of things for the team to investigate. A side story I never saw coming and whoa it did have me worried. I did, however, LOVE the ghost story and the ‘did that just happen’ vibe in the Blue Room.
I love the introduction of Valentina and am glad she has a story, my next read, as there is a lot to explore with her. Plus it’s another link to the duck pond café and gives us more to read about.
Even though this is the Hudson and Ruby show, we still see the gang pop in and move the story along. I do love Fen and her helping hand. Primrose too, got a spotlight, and I am looking forward to when we catch up with her next. I can’t wait to see how she and Jaz are getting on being fabulous Mums.
Seriously, there is no end to Rosie’s imagination. I mean, book 18, and I have more to catch up on. I love it. I say it so many times, but there are so many characters who pop up in the book that it is just fabulous to know we will get back to them. It makes me so happy as I just can’t see this series ending.
Everything about this series is a perfect recipe. Love, romance, laughter, intrigue, and the most important part, the adventure.
Right, off for my next adventure at the Café.
Until the next time xxx
