Giveaway: The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren Willig & Holiday Ornaments!

The holidays are around the corner and I'm excited to share this great giveaway with everyone.  This giveaway is for two winners to each receive a copy of The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren Willig (which was just released a few weeks ago) and a uniquely designed Mischief of the Mistletoe holiday ornament perfect for any tree. This is the perfect holiday treat for fans of Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation series. This is a stand-alone novel which is great for those who are new to the series. It is filled with Lauren's trademark blend of romance, mystery, and historical intricacy and a Christmas caper that will put you in the holiday spirit!

Here is some information about The Mischief of the Mistletoe from Lauren Willig's Website:

Arabella Dempsey’s dear friend Jane Austen warned her against teaching. But Miss Climpson’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies seems the perfect place for Arabella to claim her independence while keeping an eye on her younger sisters nearby. Just before Christmas, she accepts a position at the quiet girls’ school in Bath, expecting to face nothing more exciting than conducting the annual Christmas recital. She hardly imagines coming face to face with French aristocrats and international spies…

Reginald “Turnip” Fitzhugh—often mistaken for the elusive spy known as the Pink Carnation—has blundered into danger before. But when he blunders into Miss Arabella Dempsey, it never occurs to him that she might be trouble.  When Turnip and Arabella stumble upon a beautifully wrapped Christmas pudding with a cryptic message written in French, “Meet me at Farley Castle”, the unlikely vehicle for intrigue launches the pair on a Yuletide adventure that ranges from the Austens’ modest drawing room to the awe-inspiring estate of the Dukes of Dovedale, where the Dowager Duchess is hosting the most anticipated event of the year: an elaborate 12-day Christmas celebration. Will they find poinsettias or peril, dancing or danger? And is it possible that the fate of the British Empire rests in Arabella and Turnip’s hands, in the form of a festive Christmas pudding?
