It’s 1892 in Lancashire, England and William Somerset, the 6th Earl of Devonton, and his sister, Lady Angelica, are about to receive important guests at their ancestral home, Chalkley House. For some unexplainable reason, a sense of foreboding falls over Lady Angelica from the moment their guests arrive. When murder eventually invades Chalkley House, Lady Angelica realizes her feelings of dread were an omen of things to come.
I released my first – and hopefully not last – British murder mystery this week. A Just Measure is set in Victorian-era England in one of the great aristocratic homes of bygone days. Though Chalkley House is fictional, I enjoyed every minute spent researching the homes of the English nobility that fill our minds with visions of lords, ladies, butlers and footmen. Immersing myself in the past in this way was a true labor of love, and I hope you sense that as you roam the halls and grounds of Chalkley House yourself. 🙂
