A Winter Scandal by Candace Camp

Friday, November 18, 2011

Synopsis: When plain and proper Thea Bainbridge stumbles upon a baby in the manger of her church’s nativity, she is understandably shocked. Discovering a brooch bearing the insignia of Gabriel, Lord Morecombe, hidden among the child’s clothing, she is certain the dissolute rake is to blame. Incensed, Thea sets out to reproach the arrogant lord—only to find herself utterly swept away.

Gabriel is intrigued by the vivacity in Thea’s flashing gray eyes when she accuses him of fathering the orphan, even as he adamantly maintains his innocence. The brooch is one he remembers all too well, however, and Gabriel is determined to find the mother of the missing child. As the mystery around the baby deepens, Gabriel is continually thrown together with Thea—and finds himself growing more entranced every day.
Even with whispers of winter scandal swirling around them, they cannot deny the longing in their hearts. A longing which promises the best gift of all: a shelter from the storm . . . in each other’s arms.

Review: A Winter Scandal by Candace Camp is a wonderfully written love story. Camp has an exquisite writing style that is rich with detail and full of emotions. I found this particular love story exciting, different and definitely enjoyable. Gabriel Morecombe is dangerously charming, I found myself falling in love with his character. Thea Bainbridge is Gabriel's perfect counter part, she is a funny and interesting character. Thea sort of has this Jane Eyre attitude about her which I enjoyed. This is definitely the perfect story to read over Thanksgiving and Christmas! I also enjoyed the little bit of mystery to the storyline, it really helped push the story forward. I loved how Gabriel doesn't remember Thea at first. She is the vicar's sister, she is modest and plain and so he overlooks her. Camp does splendid job by making this aspect of the story realistic. I thought this was very clever. Overall, I loved this book! I lost sleep over it by reading it in one sitting, but it was worth it! I highly recommend it and I personally plan on re-reading it again.
