This anthology includes: The Bishop's Lady (an Émilie d’Armand mystery), A Soupçon of Poison (a Kat Holloway mystery), and A Matter of Honor (a Regency mystery with a twist).
Three historical mysteries span time from the court of Louis XIV to Victorian London. Meet Émilie d’Armand, a young woman who witnesses corruption and murder in seventeenth-century France (The Bishop’s Lady), and Katherine Holloway, a young English cook sought after by the wealthy, who finds herself embroiled in murder, assisted only by the mysterious Daniel McAdam (A Soupçon of Poison). Finally, explore the darker side of Regency London in an alternate look at that period. Robert Archer, an army soldier whose family faces ruin, searches in desperation for a way to heal his family, assisted by an unlikely ally (A Matter of Honor).
The Bishop's Lady (5500 words) and A Matter of Honor (7800 words) are short stories; A Soupçon of Poison is a longer novella (27,000 words).
