A Thief in Stickleback Hollow
Orphaned by a mysterious fever, Lady Sarah Montgomery Baird Watson-Wentworth must leave behind the freedom of her life in India for the confinements of Victorian England. But rather than navigating the intrigues of London society, Lady Sarah finds herself as a guest of Brigadier Webb-Kneelingroach in Grangeback Manor - a country estate on the edge of the eccentric village of Stickleback Hollow. As Lady Sarah finds space to think about her future and grieve for her lost parents, a break-in at Grangeback throws Lady Sarah's life into more turmoil, especially as the thief seemed to only be after one thing - the pocket watch that had belonged to Lady Sarah's father.
The main suspect is the groundskeeper at Grangeback, the young, surly, but handsome Alexander Hunter. Lady Sarah is not as convinced of his guilt as the newly formed police are. With nothing but logic and instinct to help her, Lady Sarah must join forces with Constable Arwyn Evans to clear Mr Hunter's name and find the real thief before they disappear with all that Lady Sarah has left of her father.
Can the unlikely trio stop the machinations of a thief or will they find themselves outmatched by forces far beyond their ken?
