When midwinter magic brings you home for Christmas … 

When Emmy Berry arrives at Hartsford Hall to work at the Frost Fayre she immediately feels at home. Which is odd because she’s never set foot in the place in her life.
Then a freak blizzard leaves her stranded and things get even weirder when she bumps into Tom Howard. Tom and Emmy have never met before but neither can ignore the sense that they know each other.
With Christmas fast approaching and the weather showing no sign of improving it soon becomes apparent that Hartsford Hall has a little bit of midwinter magic in store for them both …

Hartsford Mysteries series. Books include – Watch For Me By Moonlight  – Watch for Me by Candlelight and Watch for Me by Twilight.

Available as an eBook and Audio download on all platforms.

Kirsty FerryKirsty Ferry is from the North East of England and lives there with her husband and son. She won the English Heritage/Belsay Hall National Creative Writing competition and has had articles and short stories published in various magazines. Her work also appears in several anthologies, incorporating such diverse themes as vampires, crime, angels and more.

Kirsty loves writing ghostly mysteries and interweaving fact and fiction. The research is almost as much fun as writing the book itself, and if she can add a wonderful setting and a dollop of history, that’s even better.

Her day job involves sharing a building with an eclectic collection of ghosts, which can often prove rather interesting.

    Kirsty once again weaves the magic of Hartford Hall. This is a lovely story to get you in the mood for Christmas as Tom and Emmy experience the Hartsford Hall mystery for themselves, helped by the ghosts of the past and familiar characters from previous novels, Kirsty slips expertly in and out of nineteenth and twentieth centuries with characters you care about and want to see happy. It is like spending time with old friends, I loved it, I just wished it had been longer. I didn’t want it to end.

    Perfect romantic read for a cold winter day! This is part of the Hartsford Hall series but is a stand alone story. Emmy meets Tom when she is snowed in at the Hall. There is an instant connection as if they had known each other before. Is this because of a previous love story that took place at the Hall over 100 years ago? This is a super story with a wealth of characters you will care about. I did not want to leave this world of the Hall. Highly recommend

    This is a sweet little novella in Kirsty’s Hartsford series – I would really like to visit there myself – perhaps find my own destiny? (Though I’ve left it a bit late!) Hartsford Hall works its magic again – Emmy has never been there before, and is stranded there over Christmas by the weather, but she feels completely comfortable and at home, a feeling intensified by her meeting with Tom, formerly emotionally flighty brother of Kate from the local folk museum. Tom also recognises his ‘other half’ and so a story originally tragic, reaches a much better conclusion.
    What more can I say? Well worth reading – no effort required at all!

    This gorgeous Christmas story is set in Hartsford Hall and is a stand alone book but part of a series. It starts with Emmy arriving at the Hall to run a stall for the the Frost Fayre after a booked stakeholder has dropped out. Almost immediately the Hall recognises her and the door to the past is opened. With Tom already due to stay there with his sister for Christmas the lives of Millie and Charles, Tom and Emmy will intermingle. This is a great romance tieing four lives together forever. If you enjoy Christmas you will love this book! It is about everything romantic and Christmassy, it wraps you up in a cosy blanket. Enjoy with a bar of chocolate and hot drink and be totally cosseted. You never know, you might even be fortunate enough to receive another book in the series under your tree!

    The author takes us back to Hartsford Hall and I am happy to be reunited with some familiar faces. As usual, there are some new kids on the block whose past and present mix well in this wonderful series.

    Add a Christmassy background to this tale and you feel the emotions even more. Of course you can wait two months before you read the book, but why should you? It’s so wonderful and well written that, as you can see, I could not resist it’s call any longer.

    If I have to compare the books, I can honestly say that is one pulled my heartstrings the most.

    I did never really like time travel, but Kirsty Ferry changed my mind and made me fully appreciate the genre. For this I am very grateful, because I would not have wanted to miss out on these books. If I could give 6 stars, I would.

    Thank you, Kirsty Ferry and Choc Lit.
