MJP: I'm delighted to welcome Maggie Robinson here today. She started out in historical romance and is now writing historical mysteries. She's here to discuss her recent release, Farewell Blues, fourth and last of her historical mystery Lady Adelaide series.
Maggie, I've been enthralled by this series ever since you first told me the premise for book one, Nobody's Sweetheart Now. Will you explain the setup of the series? And tell us about the men in Addie's life!
MR: I’m delighted to be here! Ah, the set up. It sounds…a little crazy. But I’m reminded of this description of The Wizard of Oz: “Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets, then teams up with three strangers to kill again.”
Boiled down to its basics, there’s a widowed marquess’s daughter, the ghost of her philandering yet fatally charming husband, and a handsome Anglo-Indian detective. They team up not to kill but find killers through four light-hearted cozy mysteries. (Nobody's Sweetheart Now, Whose Sorry Now, Just Make Believe, and Farewell Blues.)
