Publisher's Summary

He loves no one and never will. 

Lord Christmas Gale is a genius and a misanthrope, and, quite to his disgust, adored by all of society for his capacity to solve mysteries. When a man approaches him seeking help in locating a lost dog, Gale rebuffs him. But what begins with a missing dog ends in murder and intrigue—two of Gale’s favorite things, if it weren’t for the orphan that comes attached to them. Oh, and Benjamin Chant.

He has sworn to never love again.

The Honorable Mr. Benjamin Chant isn’t sure how he got swept up in Gale’s mad investigation, but there’s something intriguing about the man—a vulnerability that most of the world doesn’t notice, but which captures Chant’s interest, and his sympathy, from their first meeting. After a disastrous love affair in the past, Chant has sworn to never give his heart away again. Especially to a man who does not want it.

But it isn’t just their hearts at stake.

When their investigation takes a dangerous turn and their lives are threatened, both Gale and Chant are forced into the realization that perhaps two imperfect men might fit perfectly together—that is, if they can outwit the killer who is intent on seeing them both dead. 

A Case for Christmas is the second book in the Lords of Bucknall Club series, where the Regency meets M/M romance. The Lords of Bucknall Club can be enjoyed in any order.

Outstanding performance

Cornell Collins never fails to deliver a truly satisfying narration, and this book is no exception. I adore this series, with its underlying tweak to historical English law, that same sex couples can marry to preserve the wealth of the upper classes from being spread out across the ever-widening branches of family trees laden with younger sons and daughters. This second book features Lord Christmas Gale, an autistic (although of course it is not recognizable as such) young man pushed into the public eye as an amateur sleuth, and Mr. Benjamin Chant, who has suffered more than his share of loss. Sprinkle in a hefty dose of murder, a lot of delightfully sarcastic banter, an elusive hairy dog, and a surfeit of sisters. This book is charming and touching, funny and vulnerable. A satisfying installment in a series that continues to delight with each addition!
