A Christmas Scandal

Second in Christmas Trilogy, Can stand alone

Margaret Pierce’s whole world was collapsing around her. After the end of a delightful flirtation with Edward Hollings, things just go from bad to worse. First the lost of her love, now the loss of her father, who is to spend the next five years in prison for embezzlement. The letter from her best friend’s husband, inviting her to visit them in England could not have come at a better time.

Edward tried to deny the feelings he had for the delightful American, Maggie Pierce. But he though he’d not see her again so soon. He can’t deny his feelings any longer, but can he convince Maggie to marry him?


Jane Goodger writes an emotionally intricate plot, creating fascinatingly complex characters and heart-wrenching scenes that make it difficult not to cry. Maggie is a strong character on the brink of a breakdown. She shows a falsely carefree attitude, while she is slowly crumbling inside. Edward fights his attraction to Maggie until it’s almost too late.

Both are guilty of assuming they know what the other wants, and bother are wide off the mark. They were too scared to communicate with each other, causing more conflict.

I really enjoyed watching Edward and Maggie finally admit their love, I’m just sorry they had to go through so much to finally reach their HEA. I first followed their flirtation in MARRY CHRISTMAS, the story of Maggie and Edwards’ best friends, Elizabeth and Rand. While it took them a while to work through their issues, Maggie especially had a hard time coming to terms with her situation.

I’m eagerly awaiting Amelia’s story in 2010. I can’t wait to see what the American West has in store for her, though I’m sure it won’t be an easy trip, it will surly be eventful!
