New historical suspense and cover reveal!
I’m getting some marvelous feedback about the Adelaide Becket series, from readers and from professional reviewers, too.
Recently, Spy Guys and Gals reviewed the first two books in the series, stating:
My avocation is spy series and I am always on the lookout for new ones. I was also in the mood for something a bit different than the male-kick-butt story and was delighted to find this short, very fast read. I very much enjoy Adelaide Becket and hope she sticks around for a long time. I also hope the author continues to give us the adventures in the novelette format – the size of the stories is perfect for her escapades.
In the meantime, Book 3 of the series is now out for pre-order.
But first — the cover!
Lady Adelaide is on her own…
In Edwardian Britain, Lady Adelaide Azalea Margaret de Morville, Mrs. Hugh Becket, continues her work for William Melville, spymaster. Adele accompanies King Edward and Queen Alexandra to Dublin where the King will attend the Irish International Exhibition. Events go awry even before they depart England, for the Irish Crown Jewels are stolen and King Edward takes the theft as a personal insult to the Crown.
Then the renown Irish MP, Eilish Slane, who is a personal friend of the King’s, is found murdered in a Dublin hotel. Adel attempts to investigate while navigating the shoals of the King’s temper, the actions of Irish Nationalists, the provocations of the British and Irish press, and the prejudices of men everywhere. And she must work alone, for Melville and his cohorts remain in England…
This novelette is the third in the Adelaide Becket Edwardian espionage series.
1: The Requisite Courage
2: The Rosewater Debutante
3: The Unaccompanied Widow
…and more to come.
A historical suspense espionage novelette.
