Mollie Hunt: Crazy Cat Lady Mysteries and more

My guest today— my first guest ever for my new Book Talk series— is Debbie De Louise. Debbie is the author of The Cobble Cove Mystery series (A Stone’s Throw, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, and Written in Stone). Other of ber books include CloudyRainbow; a romantic comedy novella, When Jack Trumps Ace; and several short stories. Her latest, a standalone mystery, Reason toDie,  will be out this coming month of April.

Welcome, Debbie!

I see you have written both stand-alone books and a series. Which do you prefer to write? To read? Why?

I prefer to read and write both standalones and series books. I like getting to know and follow characters from book to book in a series, but I also like a story that is complete start to finish. I enjoy alternating between series and standalones.

Like me…

Though the skies are cold and dreary, we rejoice in song and feasting as this night encloses us in her embrace. For we fear naught, since the moon and stars will light our path…

1814 Vauxhall and Drury Lane: The Belles’ Time Travel Machine

Susana's Parlour

I hope you enjoyed your stay in WWI France via Caroline Warfield’s Blog. You are now once again in Regency England! A Malicious Rumor in the Bluestocking Belles’ Never Too Lateanthology—takes place this year (as well as The Umbrella Chronicles: George and Dorothea’s Story, but you have already been there, right?), but we hope this is not your last stop via The Bluestocking Belles’ Time Machine.

Miss Alice Crocker and Mr. Peter de Luca from A Malicious Rumor are both employees of Vauxhall Gardens. Alice is a gardener and Peter is a violinist. Peter was unfairly dismissed from the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, and Alice and her grandfather help him seek justice.

Events at Vauxhall Gardens in 1814

The season began on 15 June and ended on 26 August. The finale was highlighted by a double display of fireworks by Mons. Bologna and Signor D. Mortram.
