My blog tour continues today at From Pemberley to Milton, always a lovely place to stop for book-related material. Today, a picture tour of Surrey, where Death in Highbury takes place.
Good Afternoon everyone,
Today I have the pleasure to welcome once more Riana Everly to From Pemberley to Milton to talk about Death in Highbury, book 2 in theMiss Mary Investigates series. I’ve mentioned before that Ms. Everly is an author I always love to receive here because of her interesting guest posts. She always writes the most informative posts, and today is no exception. After having read and reviewedThe Mystery of the Missing Heiress ( the prequel) andDeath of a Clergyman (Book 1), I was very curious to see where Miss Mary and Alexander would go, and Ms Everly literally showed me that.
I hope you enjoy the guest post with all those amazing pictures, and the excerpts Ms Everly brought today 🙂 Don’t forget to comment to apply to the giveaway 🙂
Thank you so much for letting me stop at this fabulous…
