The Christmas Husband Hunt is the fourth book in Kate Moore's Husband Hunter series. It stands alone just fine and dandy; in fact, it will whet your appetite for the first three books. This delightful Christmastime story will surely put you in the mood for some Christmas romance of your own.

Lady Harriet “Harry” has chosen to be known simply as Miss Swanley for the last ten years since she made a life altering decision. Rather than marry the monster her brother chose for her at sixteen, she left home and has worked as a governess. While she is treated kindly by her employer and her charges, she’s now in that undefined area between being above a regular servant, but not truly part of the family. Harry’s routine is interrupted when she

Sissy's Romance Book Review
The Christmas Husband Hunt by Kate Moore is book 4 in the Husband Hunters Series. This is the story of Harriet Swanley and Charles Davenham. I have read the previous book but feel you could make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Harriet has been a companion for several years now. Charles's sister Octavia has come to him unexpected with the goal to marry. Charles needing someone to help him with his sister and her goals ends up having Harriet help. This opens Harriet to be working clos ...more

The fourth installment of Kate Moore’s Husband Hunters series, I enjoyed this one just as much or more than the previous three. The slow burn romance is exactly what I’ve come to expect from the author, and she does not disappoint. Our leads have flaws, naturally, but they are both so strong that they refuse to act the victim like so many others could. And the spy craft was spot on. I can only hope there are more Husband Hunters stories in the future!

An enchanting story just right to put a smile on your face and warm your heart. A man searching for a spy. A governess who has more to offer than just her duties. A distressed young lady after being jilted has two people working together to find her a match.
What more can you ask for? In this wonderful 4th installment of the Husband Hunters series, Harriett and Charles begin a slow budding romance that will keep you entertained and only wanting more..

Regency.

The hero's sister was accurately described as
"mulish" & too much time was devoted to the
female spy. Who cared? I lost interest in the
main couple & the pace was zzzzz-inducing
in places. The spy analyst hero acted too busy
for romance.

What was the point of this romance? The pet
dog named 'cat' seemed the most interesting
character.

I'm a huge fan of Georgette Heyer and I liked this book that reminded me of hers.
It's a fun and entertaining read that kept me hook.
I liked the likeable and well thought cast of characters, the unusual plot and the humour.
I look forward to reading other books by this author.
Strongly recommended.
Many thanks to Kensington Books and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
