Study in Death

Spooky, no?

A Study in Death is the latest installment in the award-winning Lady Darby mystery series by national bestselling author Anna Lee Huber. It will release on July 7th, 2015 from Berkley Publishing, but is available for preorder now.  Here is what Berkley has to say about Lady Darby IV:

Scotland, 1831. After a tumultuous courtship complicated by three deadly inquiries, Lady Kiera Darby is thrilled to have found both an investigative partner and a fiancé in Sebastian Gage. But with her well-meaning—and very pregnant—sister planning on making their wedding the event of the season, Kiera could use a respite from the impending madness.

Commissioned to paint the portrait of Lady Drummond, Kiera is saddened when she recognizes the pain in the baroness’s eyes. Lord Drummond is a brute, and his brusque treatment of his wife forces Kiera to think of the torment caused by her own late husband.

Kiera isn’t sure how to help, but when she finds Lady Drummond prostrate on the floor, things take a fatal turn. The physician called to the house and Lord Drummond appear satisfied to rule her death natural, but Kiera is convinced that poison is the real culprit.

Now, armed only with her knowledge of the macabre and her convictions, Kiera intends to discover the truth behind the baroness’s death—no matter what, or who, stands in her way…

Entrants must comment under her post displaying the cover of A Study in Death for a chance to win a copy of the audiobooks of Lady Darby Books 1-3 (The Anatomist’s Wife, Mortal Arts, and A Grave Matter).

Pink III: Cover Art

I’m very excited to say that tomorrow, I will be participating in the Cover Reveal for Anna Lee Huber’s next release, A Study in Death, coming to a bookstore near you in July 2015. I’ve mentioned Anna’s Lady Darby series here on the blog several times before, and I’m excited to see where she’ll take the series with this next release. I’ll share the cover and some information about A Study in Death tomorrow.

On the subject of covers, I thought this would be a good day to take a look at the covers that have been used for The Deception of the Emerald Ring in its various publications. There actually aren’t that many options for Pink III! Here are the three that I could find:
