Jane Austen meets Lara Croft
Jane Austen meets Lara Croft: Beatrice Knight has enough to contend with: a zebra is dead on her lawn, her horse is possessed and a gentleman has arrived with the temerity to propose to her. To top it off, her dead husband Gideon has absconded with an automaton, threatening to return for his wife. The wife in question however soon has other issues, for a killer has moved into town with a nasty habit of carving up the victims. As luck should dictate, who should be the next target but Mrs Knight herself?

“I fear that I am in danger of developing a serious crush on Mrs. Beatrice Knight, the fierce and funny heroine.”
“As always, there is a lot of humour in this book. The author has a really great turn of phrase that just tickles me.”
“I loved the first book in this series and I was captivated by the second right away. Beatrice Knight is a force to reckon with, and the characters populating her stories are both delightful and maddening, but always interesting. As for the first book, I truly enjoyed the witty and engaging narrative style, the exotic setting, and the plot that had me devouring pages to get to the end of the story.”
