The Suspicion at Sanditon (Or, The Disappearance of Lady Denham) has just released, and is available through your favorite traditional or online bookseller. The Darcys’ seventh adventure takes them to the seaside village of Sanditon, where they encounter the cast of amusing characters Jane Austen created in her final days: heroine Charlotte Heywood; speculator Thomas Parker, his enigmatic brother Sidney, and their eccentric siblings; impoverished baronet Sir Edward Denham and his self-important sister—and most significantly, the wealthy, childless dowager Lady Denham, whose failure to appear at her own dinner party on a dark, stormy night sets the plot in motion.
This new Mr. & Mrs. Darcy mystery is based on the unfinished manuscript Austen was writing when she died, and working on it—reading Austen’s developing story in her own handwriting, and speculating about her intentions for the characters she created—was both a challenge and a joy. More details about The Suspicion at Sanditon, including a synopsis, excerpt, and publication details, can be found here. To learn how you can win a signed hardcover edition of the novel, visit the latest news page.
My book tour for The Suspicion at Sanditon is taking me to Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Texas—with more events being added.

All best wishes,
And thank you for visiting my online home. Here you will find details and news about me, my books, and more. I am best known for my Mr. & Mrs. Darcy Mystery series, in which the married Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice become entangled in intrigue with other Austen characters. While most of the website focuses on that series, I also write other fiction and nonfiction, and wear several additional hats (editor, writing instructor, speaker), so information about those endeavors is included here as well.
So have a look around the website—read the latest news, check out the FAQ page for answers to the questions I receive most often, and visit the events page to see whether I’ll be coming to your area for a booksigning, presentation, or writing workshop.
