A Christmas Secret

By Anne Perry

This one puts a nice bow on the story of Dominic Corde, Charotte’s ex-brother-in-law, who has played a part in at least 3 of her books, lastly in Brunswick Gardens. ***spoilers for Brunswick Gardens!***** In that book, we learn that Dominic has repented of his kind of evil ways under the influence of a Bishop and has taken orders. When the Bishop is murdered, Dominic is almost falsely accused. In the end he walks away with one of the daughters of the murdered clergyman, the appealing, intelligent, and unconventional Clarice. In A Christmas Secret, we find them very happily married, and solving a murder mystery of their own. The solution of the mystery was lacking as the motive was very weak or non-existent. **4 out of 5 stars**
