Delightful 19th Century cozy mystery.

The Great Christmas Caper is an enjoyable novella written by Karen Hall. The story is a cross between a cozy mystery and historical romance with delightful results.
Set in the 19th Century, the story centers around one of London's most eligible bachelor's Bob Barnwell. Bob and his brother are put in charge of running his family’s candy company, which is engaged in a heated Christmas competition with its chief competitor. Disaster strikes soon after a pretty saleswoman named Laura persuades Bob to by a new machine - a typewriter - and Bob hires her as a temporary secretary. Most of the workers at his factory call of sick after getting food poisoning and Bob can't help but think Laura caused this disaster and is working undercover for his competitor. The rest of the story is finding out who really poisoned the workers, Laura finding a solution to getting the factory back on track to meet the Christmas demand, and Laura and Bob learning to trust each other again.
Caroline Miller narrated this audiobook and she did a wonderful job. She brought the characters to life, giving each character their own distinct voice. I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.
