Announcing … The New Cover!!!

To all of my lovely subscribers, I wish you a Happy New Year!!!
And, as promised, you are the very first to see the cover of my new book!  Isn’t it gorgeous?!  I’m so grateful to Julie Metz, art director at She Writes Press, for designing what I think is a perfect addition to the series:


And in case you’re curious, here’s the official description:

Murder is never far from this sexy couple . . . even during the holidays!

Their honeymoon abruptly ended by the untimely death of Alcott Howard, Clive and Henrietta return to Highbury, where Clive discovers all is not as it should be. Increasingly convinced that his father’s death was not an accident, Clive launches his own investigation, despite his mother’s belief that he has become “mentally disturbed” with grief. Henrietta eventually joins forces with Clive on their first real case, which becomes darker—and deadlier—than they imagined as they get closer to the truth behind Alcott’s troubled affairs.

Meanwhile, Henrietta’s sister, Elsie, begins, at Henrietta’s orchestration, to take classes at a women’s college—an attempt to evade her troubles and prevent any further romantic temptations. When she meets a bookish German custodian at the school, however, he challenges her to think for herself . . . even as she discovers some shocking secrets about his past life.

And now for...
… An Exciting New Adventure!

Many of you have written to me over the years asking if I have a Street Team.  Up until now, the answer has been no, but I am happy to announce that I have finally decided to gather one together for the launch of Book 4 – A Veil Removed!!! 
What is a street team, you might ask?
A street team is a fun group of superfans dedicated to spreading the word about the release of Book 4! 
  • I’ll start by sending each of you an ARC of A Veil Removed in exchange for a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. 
  • As we roll along, I’ll be sending extra fun things your way in exchange for more “assignments,” and
  • I’ll have contests just for you!  
Since this is sort of an experiment for me as well, I’m limiting the team to the first 25! people who email me at: 

Can’t wait to get started with all of you lovlies!
