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.
