Description

All Charlotte Ross wanted was a pleasant vacation. She wasn't counting on solving a centuries-old mystery or falling for a handsome aristocrat. A young woman in her prime, Charlotte has become bored living in the small Illinois town where she grew up--and is tired of her controlling mother trying to marry her off to the oldest and wealthiest men in town. So when her mystery-loving friend Jane Marshall suggests a driving trip across England, Charlotte eagerly packs her bags. But Charlotte gets more than she bargained for. Just two days in, their car breaks down in a thunderstorm, and the women take refuge inside Blake Hall, an ancient aristocrat's lair with a long and rumored past. As guests of the British aristocracy, these out-of-place Americans stumble their way through a fox hunt, encounter imagined ghosts and discover a mysterious clue to a centuries-old murder that has remained unsolved--until now at least. Influenced by the novels of Jane Austen, Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Romancing a Mystery is smart, savvy and at times, warmly romantic.show more

About Evelyn Cullet

Evelyn Cullet has been an aspiring author since high school when she wrote short stories. She began her first novel while attending college later in life and while working in the offices of a major soft drink company. Now, with early retirement, she can finally write full time. As a life-long mystery buff, she was a former member of the Agatha Christie Society, and is a current member of the National Chapter of Sisters In Crime. When she's not writing mysteries, reading them or reviewing them, she's hosting other authors and their works on her weekly writer's blog. She also plays the piano, is an amateur lapidary, and an organic gardener. Not much of a world traveler, she did go to England to do research for this particular story. Her other novels are, Love, Lies and Murder, Masterpiece of Murder, and Once Upon a Crime.show more
