Lady Helena Whitcombe, née Lady Helena Scott-De Quincy, is jolted out of her comfortable existence in 1880s Sussex by the sudden death of her husband Justin. Investigating his death at the prompting of mysterious French physician Armand Fortier leads her to the realization that she knows very little about her own aristocratic family’s past. Step into Lady Helena Whitcombe’s world with a series that will blend family saga and mystery-driven action with a slow-burn romance in seven unputdownable investigations.
Lady helena investigates
1881, Sussex. Lady Helena Scott-De Quincy’s marriage to Sir Justin Whitcombe gave new purpose to a life almost destroyed by the death of Helena’s first love. Helena is content with her quiet country life until Sir Justin is found dead in the river overlooked by their grand baroque mansion.
The intrusion of attractive, mysterious French physician Armand Fortier, with his meddling theory of murder, into Helena’s first weeks of mourning is bad enough. But with her initial ineffective efforts at investigation and her attempts to revive her long-abandoned interest in herbalism comes the realization that she may have been mistaken about her own family’s past.
Every family has its secrets. The Scott-De Quincy family has more than most.
