I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed reading through the contest entries. There were some rather interesting candidates, like Vaughn’s mother. (She’s still lording it over that family pile up north.) The Uppingtons had a considerable fan base, as did that undauntable octogenarian, the Dowager Duchess of Dovedale.
In the end, though, the winners of the holiday contest, by a landslide, were…
Henrietta and Miles!
They were more than twenty points ahead of their nearest competitors. Tied for second place, with exactly the same number of votes, were Geoff and Letty and Mary and Vaughn. You can imagine how Mary must have felt about that!
The plan? To post their bonus chapter here on the website on Valentine’s Day.
What better way to wile away the last few hours before The Garden Intrigue?
