Romancing a Mystery

All Charlotte Ross wanted was a pleasant vacation. She wasn’t counting on solving a centuries-old mystery or falling for a handsome aristocrat.

A young woman in her prime, Charlotte has become bored living in the small Illinois town where she grew up–and is tired of her controlling mother trying to marry her off to the oldest and wealthiest men in town. So when her mystery-loving friend Jane Marshall suggests a driving trip across England, Charlotte eagerly packs her bags. But Charlotte gets more than she bargained for. Just two days in, their car breaks down in a thunderstorm, and the women take refuge inside Blake Hall, an ancient aristocrat’s lair with a long and rumored past. As guests of the British aristocracy, these out-of-place Americans stumble their way through a fox hunt, encounter imagined ghosts and discover a mysterious clue to a centuries-old murder that has remained unsolved–until now at least.

Influenced by the novels of Jane Austen, Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Romancing a Mystery is smart, savvy and at times, warmly romantic.All Charlotte Ross wanted was a pleasant vacation. She wasn’t counting on solving a centuries-old mystery or falling for a handsome aristocrat.
