...unexpected gifts at Christmas.

Once Upon a Christmas Kiss by Manda Collins 

Miss Winifred Nightingale, a gentlewoman turned governess, has along with her sister Cordelia, been invited to a Christmas house party.       

Sir Lucien Blakemore has come to the same house party. He and Winnie know each other from Yorkshire and have a friendly acquaintance. Things of course change and Lucien and Winnie find themselves thrown together in an unsuspected manner. 
Both Sir Lucien and Winnie are well developed characters that demonstrate both human frailties and strengths.
We have a bad man in the form of an uncaring womanizer from Winnie's past, a dreadful local lady who is a major force, well a bully really in the social circle of the local village, her daughters, and various other house guests. 
Nasty and strange things keep happening to Winnie. Both she and Lucien are perturbed. What is happening and why?
