England...The Lake District -- 1912: A Great War is bearing down upon everyone, and Beatrix Potter, solver of mysteries, is distracted by the constant noise from that new contraption, the hydroplane... constantly flying by, landing on lakes, buzzing off again... And Ms Potter needs to concentrate. One of her dear friends has been getting letters of an anonymous and unpleasant nature. And dear Miss B. may have other interests of a fonder nature opening up before her. Even if her parents don't approve.
And the dragon, the owls and a certain Jack Russell Terrier have their own lives and opinions to comment upon, of course.
Ms Albert and her husband Bill have created Kathryn Ardleigh, a transplanted American in Victorian England, who runs into Sir Charles Sheridan, peer and amateur scientist (start with Death at Bishop's Keep
). Penned under the name of Robin Paige, set in an English village named
Dedham- what better location for a few murders?
