1817. The happy chaos of the Yuletide season has descended upon the country estate of Shackleford Park in full force, but lady’s maid Kate Darby barely has the time to notice. Between her household duties, caring for her ailing mother, and saving up money to someday own a dress shop, her hands are quite full. Matt Harlow is also rather busy. He’s performing double-duty, acting as valet for both of the Steeple brothers, two of the estate’s holiday guests.

Falling in love would be a disaster for either of them. But staving off their feelings for each other becomes the least of their problems when a devious counterfeiting scheme reaches the gates of Shackleford Park, and Kate and Matt are unwittingly swept up in the intrigue.

Full of sweetness, charm, and holiday mischief, Carols and Chaos―a standalone companion novel to Suitors and Sabotage―is perfect for readers who like their historical fiction with a side of romance and danger.

My Thoughts:

I actually enjoyed this book. I thought it was such a cute historical fiction read that has some holiday drama. I really liked the romance as well in this book and found both POV to be equally interesting. I also liked how really it was focused on historical fiction rules and society rules. It was such a fun read. I also was pleasantly suprised by the mystery and really liked that plot part as well. I def would read more by this author in the future.
