Did you know that wealthy homeowners in the 1800s could stock their home libraries by ordering books by the foot? Well, make room on your shelf, because there will soon be almost seven full inches of Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries!
Coming Fall 2022 is Myrtle Hardcastle Book 4, In Myrtle Peril, featuring a missing heiress, the mysterious fate of a ghost ship, Intriguing Laundry Technology, and an unfortunate case of tonsillitis.
And the new news: I am thrilled to announce that my fabulous publisher, Algonquin Young Readers, has just signed on for Book 5: Myrtle, Means, and Opportunity!
This new misadventure in Victorian criminology will take Myrtle & Co. to Scotland, thanks to an unexpected inheritance . It’s “The Money Pit” meets And Then there Were None. With foxhounds.
Here was the official announcement that went out on Friday:
Thanks to the readers, fans, booksellers, librarians, bloggers, and reviewers who have made the Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries such a hit! I honestly can’t think of a way I’d rather spend the next couple of years than spinning more Myrtle yarns!
