A most agreeable murder

Seales, Julia2023
Books, Manuscripts
Beatrice Steele has none of the accomplishments of a true lady: she's terrible at needlework, has no musical ability, and her artwork is so bad it frightens people. Little does anyone know that Beatrice also harbours a dark secret: an obsession with true crime cases she reads about in the newspaper. For her family's sake, she's vowed to put this obsession behind her. Eligible bachelor Edmund Croaksworth is set to attend the autumnal ball, and the Steele family hopes that Louisa will steal his heart. Their future depends on this match! Beatrice needs be on her best behaviour - though that's made more difficult when a disgraced yet strangely alluring detective inexplicably shows up to the ball. Just as Beatrice thinks she's gotten away with it, Croaksworth drops dead in the middle of a minuet. As a storm rages outside, the evening descends into a frenzy as it becomes clear they're trapped with a killer!
