In this upcoming traditional mystery series, retired literature professor Emily Cavanaugh inherits a Victorian estate and finds herself embroiled in a series of murder cases, each of which bears an eerie resemblance to one of her favorite classic novels.
Arsenic with Austen
When Emily Cavanaugh inherits a fortune from her great aunt, she expects her life to change. She doesn’t expect to embark on a murder investigation, confront the man who broke her heart 35 years before, and nearly lose her own life.
When Emily travels to the sleepy coastal village of Stony Beach, Oregon, to claim her inheritance—centered in a beautiful Victorian estate called Windy Corner—she hears hints that her aunt may have been murdered. Soon another murder confirms these suspicions. With the help of Sheriff Luke Richards, her once-and-possibly-future love, Emily discovers that underneath the innocent-looking rocks of Stony Beach lurk secrets that would have put Jane Austen’s most reprobate characters to shame.
