Amid the Winter's Snow
Lady Emily #12.5
Emily and Colin Hargreaves are looking forward to nothing more than spending a relaxing Christmas at their country estate, Anglemore Park, eating mince pies and playing with their sons in the falling snow. Their solitude is interrupted by a knock on the door one night, when the villagers of nearby Dunsford Vale come to them with strange tales of a barghest--a mythical black dog with red eyes and enormous teeth and claws--that has been wreaking havoc on the town.
Never ones to be taken in by local superstitions, Colin and Emily team up to find an explanation behind the bizarre events. When a grieving young woman in town receives a mysterious and beautiful gift after a visit from the barghest, Emily and Colin begin to suspect that the beast is more man than monster. Racing through the candlelit streets of Dunsford Vale and the windswept heaths of Anglemore, the couple must follow the clues and uncover the truth to restore Christmas cheer.
