Mystery author Clare Langley-Hawthorne, author of THE SERPENT AND THE SCORPION (Penguin 2008) and CONSEQUENCES OF SIN will speak and sign at Bookwagon New and Used Books in Ashland, Oregon on Friday Sept 11, 2009 at 6pm.
Ursula Marlow is a strong female character, unwilling to bend to the expectations of her father and the upper class society she is born to. Set in Edwardian England, Langley-Hawthorne’s mysteries are filled with clever crimes and criminals, sexy romance, wild romps in exotic locations and historic adventures.
In CONSEQUENCES OF SIN, Ursula Marlow discovers an aptitude for detection and begins to hone her considerable skills. In THE SERPENT AND THE SCORPION, Ursula faces international labor interests, financial ruin, and of course romance!
If you’ve enjoyed Jacqueline Winspear, Rhys Bowen, and Carola Dunn, you’ll be delighted with Clare Langley-Hawthorne’s Ursula Marlow mysteries. Here’s what Rhys Bowen, author of Her Lady Spyness and the Molly Murphy series has to say about THE SERPENT AND THE SCORPION: “The book sweeps from the steamy bazaars of Egypt to proper English drawing rooms as Ursula battles international intrique and her own sensuous nature. Dorothy Sayers would be proud of her Oxford sister.”
