Mix a sweet romance with a dollop of mystery, and what do you get? A new swoon-worthy JAFF novel featuring my favorite detective duo!
This summer, we visited my family in Oregon and California. I was wrapping up my latest cozy mystery and was chomping at the bit to return to Regency England.
Since airport layovers offer plenty of time for reflection and my kiddos were happy watching The Pink Panther, my hubby and I had this discussion:
Me: “I’m so excited to start my next project, but I don’t know who to kill next. Who do you think?”
Hubby: “Who have you killed so far?”
Me: “Hmm, let’s see … well, as much as I’d like to, I can’t kill Wickham again.” (That’s not really a spoiler. What mystery writer wouldn’t kill him first?!)
Hubby: “What about methods?”
Me: “Poison is my favorite. Pistols are too bloody.”
(It was at this point that the woman sitting behind us at Gate 7B got up and moved.)
So that’s how our vacation began. And by the end of it, I had a story. This story!
You see, my mom is a writer too. We were throwing ideas around when she said: “Why not kill XXX next?”
It was just the “Ah-ha!” moment I needed. The story started unfolding and I typed as fast as I could to keep up. I have to say that I absolutely love this Darcy and his interfering wingman.
So, thank you, Mom! And thank you, Airport Lady, for not calling security on me!
Here’s The Elizabeth Conspiracy! Isn’t the cover pretty?
Here’s what it’s about:
Can Darcy and Elizabeth set aside their prejudices long enough to avoid the hangman’s noose?
Elizabeth Bennet values goodness and charm — both qualities Mr. Darcy blatantly lacks.
Fitzwilliam Darcy values wit and strong opinions — qualities with which Miss Elizabeth is generously armed.
A refused proposal turns into a battle of wills when Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are forced to endure each other’s company at the beautiful estate of Rosings. When an unlikely enemy reveals herself — and ends up dead — fingers are eager to point at Elizabeth. With the residents of Rosings conspiring against her, will Elizabeth’s clever mind secure her freedom? Or will her prejudice against Mr. Darcy poison her against her greatest ally?
As suspicions rise and the evidence mounts, Elizabeth learns the value of a loyal friend and the forgiveness of love … but will it be too late?
Darcy would sacrifice his good name, worldly possessions, and family’s expectations to save the woman he loves … if he can win her heart before he loses it all.
