Great news! The next book in the Miss Mary Investigatges series is ready and available for pre-order!
Death in Highbury: An Emma Mystery will be released on January 30, 2021.
This full-length novel once again features Mary Bennet as the sleuth, and once again she finds herself working with investigator Alexander Lyons as they try to figure out why men keep dying in Emma Woodhouse’s town of Highbury, Surrey.
The cover, once again, is thanks to fantastic cover artist Mae Phillips, who never fails to make something beautiful. The background is a photo of Surrey, England, where the story takes place. I can just imagine Mary and Alexander riding across those lovely hills in search of the clue they need to solve this perplexing mystery. Didn’t she do a lovely job?
And here’s the blurb:
When political chaos in London forces Mary Bennet to take refuge in the picturesque town of Highbury, Surrey, she quickly finds herself safe among friends. Emma Woodhouse welcomes her as a guest at Hartfield, Jane Fairfax is delighted by her love of music, and Frank Churchill can’t stop flirting with her. But it is not long before Mary starts to suspect that beneath the charming surface, Highbury hides some dark secrets.
Alexander Lyons is sent to Surrey on an investigation, and at his friend Darcy’s request, heads to Highbury to make certain Mary is comfortable and safe. But no sooner does he arrive than one local man dies, and then another!
Soon Alexander and Mary are thrust into the middle of a baffling series of deaths. Are they accidents? Or is there a very clever murderer hiding in their midst? And can they put their personal differences aside in time to prevent yet another death in Highbury?
