Blurb: Peter Warfield wanted a Christmas like none before. A celebration of putting the past behind them. Leaving Bradley Warfield and Moses Lee buried in the past. A new tradition of love and happiness for future generations.
But, no one was cooperating.
You are invited to celebrate the holidays with Peter, Sally and their daughter, Lily, at the Warfield Manor. There’s no murder to solve or a criminal to catch, but there are secrets to be revealed.
Justin Warfield and Marcus Drummond aren’t speaking or telling anyone else what is going on. Damien Fitzgerald and Robert Wyler have been out of the country but is that really the truth. Sally’s been trying to tell Peter something important for weeks but he’s so wrapped up in Christmas, she can’t get through to him.
Catch up with the rest of the Warfield extended family: Richard Brooks, Daisy Lee and their son Alexander, Krystal Smith, Winnie, Michaels and all the rest. One thing’s for sure, it will be a Christmas the Warfield’s will never forget.
This book will be more enjoyable if you have read any of the other Warfield Hotel books. Like a beautiful package wrapped up with a shining bow on top, there’s a happy ending for all.
Review: Peter Warfield is determined to have a family and friends and a first perfect Christmas in the Warfield Manor. He adores his wife, Sally, and little girl, Lily, who’s just getting to the age where she can really enjoy the holiday. He’s even pulling out all the stops to be sure the hotel schedule allows everyone to enjoy the holiday with their families.
Of course, there are stumbling blocks along the way. What is going on with Justin, his brother, and Marcus Drummond, Peter’s best friend? Damien Fitzgerald is still on assignment with his partner (and the inn’s bar manager), Robert Wyler. Sally has been trying to get Peter to slow down, but interruptions are coming from all directions, and she really needs time with him.
Marcus, being a private investigator in Atlanta, gets called in on a missing persons case that involves the Warfield’s past. Is the tragic past going to ruin this special Christmas for Peter, and haunt the Warfields forever?
C.J. Baty takes us back to Beaufort, South Carolina, and the Warfield Manor. A Warfield Christmas is an easy and delightful read, with a bit of a mystery, and I wanted more. But, it absolutely provided a little of all the right emotions to give it a good holiday story feel. It was a really wonderful visit to see how all the characters have been dealing with their lives through the years. There are little snippets about the history of the Warfields, but I highly recommend reading the other books in The Warfield Hotel Mysteries series first. I really enjoy it and hope C.J. Baty has more Warfield books to come.
