Cathryn Parry’s first piece of romantic writing was a love letter she wrote to the boy who sat next to her in first grade. By the next Christmas, she was asking for a typewriter to organize her growing collection of adventure stories inspired by Nancy Drew.

But it wasn’t until Cathryn was an engineer working a less-than-inspiring job in a ball bearings factory that she dared to write her first novel, a romance about a woman who found the courage to pursue her deeply-held dreams. After that, Cathryn knew she was a novelist, and was hooked on the writing process.

Since publishing with Harlequin Books in 2012, Cathryn's stories have received such honors as the Booksellers' Best Award, a CataRomance Reviewers' Award and three HOLT Medallion Award

I was in the mood for a mystery set in England during the Regency era, and this book was recommended by a friend. I loved it! A big plot with lots of characters, and the mystery kept me guessing until the end.
