Rubies and runaways, Janine Beacham
A marvelous sequel to Rose Raventhorpe: Black cats and Butlers.
It’s Christmas in the ancient town of Yorke, and Rose Raventhrope is being forced to spend the holidays with (Ghastly) Herbert, her cousin who, despite Rose’s many disgusted looks, thinks they’re engaged. But soon Rose finds herself helping the butlers of Silvercrest Hall once again, this time helping a lost orphan boy find his missing sister. Suddenly, things go downhill as two murders take place, and the butlers are blamed for them by a secret society of Chimney Sweeps. Can Rose prove their innocence before it’s too late?
