Nearly A Murder

Nearly A Murder

July 1926

Violet and Jack have determined upon an adventure. In a moment of sheer madness, they and their friends find a steamship leaving the country with room for them and board without even being certain of where they’re going.

One would think that would be the oddest thing about their trip. Only at the disembarking party, a couple enters the room and then stumbles down the stairs of the ballroom. It seems that they’ve both been poisoned. Only whoever has poisoned them chose a different poison for each. Who is this mad poisoner and when will they strike again?

Book TWENTY-TWO in the Violet Carlyle Mysteries. Are you ready for the roaring twenties? You’ll love Vi, her patient husband Jack, her indulgent twin Vic, and their friends. For fans of Carola Dunn, Jacqueline Winspear, Georgette Heyer, and Lee Strauss. A light, cozy mystery with a fun peek into life in the life of a bright young thing. No swearing, graphic scenes, or cliffhangers.
