Jessica Bull and Sophie Irwin on Regency Reimaginings

On the 26th of March, Topping will welcome the wonderful Jessica Bull to celebrate Bull’s debut novel, Miss Austen Investigates! Joined by Sophie Irwin, best known for A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting (which has become a regency must-read since publication), this is a pairing no historical fiction lover should miss!

Miss Austen Investigates:

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that every good mystery is in need of a brilliant sleuth …

Welcome to Hampshire, 1795, where a young Jane Austen has her sights set on securing a marriage proposal from the dashing Tom Lefroy at a local ball.

But when a shocking discovery is made – a milliner’s lifeless body tucked away in a linen closet – Jane finds herself embroiled in an unexpected murder mystery.

As she races against the clock to clear her beloved brother Georgy’s name, Jane uses her sharp wits to navigate the treacherous waters of society, unmasking secrets and unearthing hidden motives along the way. With every twist and turn, Jane’s determination to solve the case deepens. And if she fails, her brother will face the ultimate punishment – the hangman’s noose …

Join Jane on her quest for justice as she faces down danger, deceit, and scandal amidst her own friends and neighbours. Will she uncover the truth in time, or will the real killer go free? One thing’s for certain – in Hampshire, nothing is as it seems …

A Lady’s Guide to Scandal:

A lifetime of duty:

Widowed at just seven-and-twenty from her marriage of convenience, Eliza, now Countess of Somerset, is bequeathed a fortune, hers to keep – provided she can steer clear of scandal.

The promise of love:

The last thing she expects is to be torn between two very different men – a face from the past, whose loss she’s always mourned, and a roguish poet, who scorns convention.

A taste of freedom:

But a lady’s reputation is fragile and with jealous eyes on Eliza’s fortune, it will only take one whisper of gossip for her to lose it all…
