I received a copy of Murder in Devon (romantic suspense) by Aussie author Maggi Andersen, my review will be up in May during her book blog tour and Maggi will be stopping by for a guest spot too. I couldn’t resist but to request a copy of the Jane Austen Marriage Manual by debut author Kim Izzo which plays on Austen’s first line in Pride and Prejudice: It is a truth universally acknowledged….. and it looks like a fun read.
Blurb: An ex-patriot-American living in England, magazine reporter Casey Rowan wakes to find one best friend murdered and another seriously injured. Casey is determined to find the killer, despite running afoul of the detective in charge of the case—a blue-eyed Scot named Rod Carlisle, who considers her a prime suspect. As Casey gets closer to the truth, losing her heart to the sexy cop isn’t the only thing she risks. Now her life is danger, too.
He wants her, but he may have to choose between love and duty…
Rod has no patience with civilians who interfere in police matters, even hot little numbers like Casey. Though he tries to keep things professional, Casey’s beauty and spunk are hard to resist. He warns her that what she’s doing is dangerous, but he only succeeds in alienating her. She refuses to listen and goes off on her own with disastrous results. Now Rod’s in a race to find the killer before the woman he loves becomes the next victim.
Katherine Shaw is happy with her life. She has supportive friends, a glamorous magazine career, and a love of all things Jane Austen. So what if her boyfriend ran off with all her money? So what if she’s about to turn forty? She’ll move on. But when she loses her job, when her beloved grandmother falls ill and her mother’s gambling debts force a sale on the family home, Kate finds herself facing a crisis that would test even the most stalwart of Austen heroines. Friends rally round, connecting her to freelance gigs, and presenting her with a birthday gift– title to land in Scotland–that’s about to come in very handy. Turns out that Kate’s first freelance assignment is inspired by Jane Austen herself: is it possible, in these modern times, to marry for money? It’s all hypothetical, of course, until Kate considers the venture a way to solve her family’s financial woes. What begins as an article turns into an opportunity as Kate–now Lady Kate–pursues and is pursued, until at last she is forced to choose between Mr. Rich and Mr. Right.
