DISCOVER A SUMPTUOUS REGENCY MURDER MYSTERY FROM YOUR NEW FAVOURITE AUTHOR, BETH ANDREWS.
Anthea Halliwell’s once-bright future is cruelly taken from her the moment she is accused of stealing a necklace dripping with rubies and diamonds and attempting to sell it.
Her beloved Captain Crispin breaks off their engagement at the first hint of scandal and marries her friend instead. Then to make matters worse, her father gambles away their fortune.
Heartbroken and penniless, Anthea is forced to beg handsome Gideon Rodrigo for help. But she never expects him to propose.
It may be a marriage of convenience for Anthea, but Gideon will do anything to clear his wife’s name.
Gideon enlists the help of John and Lydia Savidge, who have their own reputation for solving crimes.
While tongues wag and suspicions mount, John and Lydia suspect more than theft and slander are at play.
And someone is killing to keep their secrets hidden . . .
Fans of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton, Janice Hadlow, Mary Balogh, Eloisa James, Lisa Kleypas or Jane Austen will love this charming Regency murder mystery.

LOVE AND FREINDSHIP (SIC) AND OTHER DELUSIONS
Anthea is in a bind. Branded as a thief by her neighbours and friends and living on the breadline with her gambling father she is caught between a rock and a hard place: move in with her father’s woman or go and ask for help from a family friend.
Throwing herself at the mercy of Gideon she begs him to loan her the funds to start a business. But Gideon has a better idea and proposes marriage. If the proposal was not shock enough Gideon informs her that he knows of the rumours and he is convinced of her innocence. Accepting the proposal Andrea wonders what she has let herself in for.
Unsure where her new life will take her Andrea packs her bags and elopes with Gideon.
A historical fiction read with romance and crime thrown into the mix this is a very gripping read with realistic characters that develop well and a unique story that keeps the reader guessing and wondering all the way through. The introduction of amateur detectives’ John and Lydia adds more interest to the story and there is also humour.
A very entertaining read that had me turning page after page well into the night. I will certainly be looking for more from this author.
Beth Andrews (a.k.a. Paul Bethel) was born and raised in Nassau, Bahamas. At the age of about seven, ‘Beth’ was reading lurid and completely inappropriate tales of murder in True Detective magazine — which may explain her somewhat twisted sense of humour. Writing soon followed. Graduating to Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, Regency romance and mystery was a natural progression — though Paul still indulges in scribbling occasional contemporary stories and song lyrics just for fun, as well as non-fiction articles and essays for Jane Austen’s Regency World. Paul also enjoys music, gardening, travel (pre-pandemic, of course) and the beach.
