The trouble is, kindness is trouble.

Disgraced. Jobless. Kicked out of the butler’s guild. Pennyton believed he had done the right thing. The kind thing. Look where that got him. Yet when he answers a surprise knock on his door, Pennyton finds himself where he least expected: on a one-night gig driving a carriage for a rich journalist who paid in full and up front.

Trouble is, now Pennyton sits on his freezing arse. In the London dark. On a hard carriage seat behind impatient horses. Waiting for hours at the mouth of a dark alley full of bad news. Waiting. And waiting…

Then a terrible sound tells Pennyton that trouble just found him again.

If you love a down-on-their-luck hero with a good twist, then get ready to curl up with your favorite beverage and “A Tea and Brandy Gig.”
