Description

For fans of Maisie Dobbs, a riveting new Edwardian mystery series featuring detective heiress Ursula Marlow Ursula Marlow, the star of this richly detailed, beautifully paced, deeply romantic mystery, is a strong female heroine with whom fans of Dorothy Sayers, Sarah Waters, Anne Perry, and Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series will instantly fall in love. An Oxford graduate active in the battle for women's suffrage, Ursula is not your typical Edwardian heiress. Her once-charmed life takes a frightening turn when a fellow suffragette and friend is accused of murder. As Ursula digs deeper to discover the truth and clear her friend's tarnished name, she is drawn into a mystery that raises troubling questions about her own father's connection to the murder victim.

Review quote

"An action-packed plot, rich period detail, and a bit of romance will insure that readers of cozies and historical mysteries will find much to enjoy."
-Booklist "Langley-Hawthorne follows in the pertly trod path set by Jacqueline Winspear. . . . Consequences of Sin is more Dorothy Sayers than CSI, which isn't a bad thing at all."
-Joanne Sasvari, Calgary Herald
