Join us as we celebrate the release of Katharine Schellman’s debut mystery novel, The Body in the Garden. A signing will follow. This event will be free and open to the public.
About the Book: When newly-widowed Lily Adler returns to London society in 1815, she is no stranger to the glittering world of London’s upper crust. At a ball thrown by her oldest friend, Lady Walter, she expects the scandal, gossip, and secrets. What she doesn’t expect is the dead body in Lady Walter’s garden.
Lily is willing to leave the matter to the local constables until Lord Walter bribes the investigating magistrate to drop the case. Aided by a roguish navy captain and a mysterious heiress from the West Indies, Lily must discover whether her friend’s husband is mixed up in blackmail and murder—before she becomes the killer’s next target.
