    Summary

    Major Hugo Darracott, heir to the Darracott honours, lands and title, sipped his brandy and stretched his long legs under the dining table. “I won’t say I’m well pleased with how long it’s taking to set the Dower House to rights.” He glanced at his grandfather, Lord Darracott of Darracott Place, deep in conversation with his cousin Vincent at the head of the table. “But finding another builder at this late stage will just mean pushing the wedding date back again, and I’ll not be the one to tell Anthea she’s to re-write the invitation cards again!"

    Summary

    Claud Darracott isn't looking forward to going home for Christmas: for a Dandy like Claud, there's nothing to do in the country, and on top of that, the Darracotts will be a sorry bunch, because his cousin Richmond, in Paris with Wellington's Army of Occupation, has still not returned. Being trapped by a blizzard at a country inn on the way turns out to be a blessing in disguise, when he meets Felix Hethersett. But inviting Hethersett to the family home seems to have been a mistake: something's afoot there, and whatever it is, with the Darracotts, it's bound to be a mess...
