“I am first and foremost a teller of tales.”

Dear Readers,

I’m excited to announce my second book in the ‘House of Caruthers’ series A Secret Engagement has a publishing date of September 22.

A Secret Engagement features Edmund and Dolly, gobs of London fog, a murder in fashionable Mayfair, missteps and a daring rescue with a twist. Edmund and Dolly’s engagement is still a secret, much to the frustration of my favorite barrister, Edmund Caruthers.

There are other, more sinister engagements in A Secret Engagement and I hope readers will enjoy reading about them as much as I have enjoyed writing about them. A Secret Engagement is available now for pre-order at Amazon.com.

With thanks,
