THE ADVENTURESS has a gorgeous cover, doesn't it?

Emily and Colin, along with Margaret and Cécile, have traveled to Cannes to to celebrate the engagement of Jeremey, Duke of Bainbridge, to Miss Amity Wells, an American heiress about whom Emily is somewhat less than thrilled. The merrymaking is cut short with the shocking death of one of the party in an apparent suicide. Not convinced by the coroner’s verdict, Emily must employ all of her investigative skills to discover the truth and avert another tragedy

On sale 13 October 2015..

Christmas fun! I have written a Christmas novella, THE STAR OF THE EAST, which goes on sale (as an e-book only) on 28 October 2014. Emily and Colin are less than pleased to be summoned to her mother's house in Kent so close to the holidays, but some requests can't be ignore.

I'm thrilled to share the gorgeous cover of the newest Emily book, which goes on sale 14 October 2014. The Counterfeit Heiress opens in London, at the Devonshire House Ball, given in honor of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. This magnificent event, probably one of the most famous costume parties in history, included an on-site photographer, leaving us today with a stunning record of the Duchess's guests. To see pictures, click here. The story takes Emily, Colin, and Jeremy - who just might (to his great consternation) prove himself useful - to Paris, where Cécile is desperate for their help.

This may be one of the most amazing things to happen to one of my books: Michael Alan Anderson, Assistant Professor of Musicology at the Eastman School of Music (University of Rochester) and Artistic Director of Schola Antiqua Chicago, has put together a wonderful, wonderful playlist for Death in the Floating City. This fantastic set will give you an idea of the music that would have filled Besina's and Nicolò's world, as well as a little taste of what Emily could have been listening to...

See the complete playlist here.

We have a cover and we have a publication date! Behind the Shattered Glass will be available on 15 October 2013. In the months to come, I will post an excerpt as well as more information about Anglemore Park, Colin's estate. In the meantime, more information about the book is available here.

I am delighted to announce that Constable & Robinson have bought UK rights to the entire series. I have seen the cover roughs and they are phenomenal - cannot wait to share the final versions. More to come...

The official title for this autumn's Lady Emily novel is Behind the Shattered Glass. The Hargreaves family are comfortably ensconced in their country estate, Anglemore Park, until a gentleman staggers into their library and falls (much to the dismay of Lady Bromley) dead onto the floor.

Burton Agnes Hall (left), one of my favorite houses in England, provided a great deal of inspiration for Anglemore.
