I have been busy for the last while editing the third book of my Miss Mary Investigates series, and I am thrilled to say it is almost ready. The book has been past my editor and a small army of intrepid beta readers, and my fabulous cover artist has worked her usual magic. This new mystery is nearly ready for the world!
In this novel, Mary and Alexander are traveling back to Hertfordshire after visiting the Darcys at Pemberley and have broken their journey in Northampton, where Alexander has a friend. There, they find themselves in the middle of a muddle, because Tom Bertram, heir to Mansfield Park, has vanished, and Alexander is asked to take the case.
The household itself is most busy, with the presence of friends and neighbours alike, all eager to rehearse the play that Tom has found for them, and matters are not always as they seem. When disaster strikes, will Alexander and Mary be able to solve this case? And Alexander has a secret of his own that might destroy his tentative friendship with Mary.
I won’t say more now, but be on the lookout soon for release information on this new adventure, Death of a Dandy: A Mansfield Park Mystery.
