The Scott-De Quincy Mysteries

As the sixth daughter, I’d spent my youth surrounded by other people, but since my marriage to Justin, I’d grown accustomed to the peace and spaciousness of Whitcombe House. Our world had revolved around the two of us, and we’d been happy. For me, that happiness had been all the more precious since I’d already lost one love, my cousin Daniel—and now my darling Justin had followed him to the grave.


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.
