I have been working on the forthcoming Jane Rochester mystery, Recipient of Secrets, and it was always my intention to make this a fall/winter novel, which means Christmas, because I love Christmas. But I had a scene or two in mind that I wasn’t sure was going to make the cut, as far as actually making sense in the final story. So I’m trying to expand it into a stand alone Christmas story. It’s turning out a bit more light-hearted than the regular mystery tale, which, honestly, may not work. But also, seems more fitting for Christmas.
If all goes well, (hey, it could happen!), this story will be available before December is over. And I made the cover already, even though the story isn’t finished, because I have a slight obsession with covers. So, coming soon!
Jane has returned to Morton with Mr. Rochester and Adele, where they receive a seemingly innocent invitation to a Christmas party at Mr. Oliver’s. Once there, Jane is drawn into an unlikely puzzle involving a missing cash box, a dashing but unwanted helper, and the perfect dress for solving a mystery.
