All Charlotte Ross wanted was a get-away vacation. She wasn’t counting on solving a centuries-old mystery or falling for a handsome aristocrat.
A young woman in her prime, Charlotte has become bored living in the small Illinois town where she grew up–and is tired of her controlling mother trying to marry her off to the oldest and wealthiest men in town. So when her mystery-loving friend Jane Marshall suggests a driving trip across England, Charlotte eagerly packs her bags. But Charlotte gets more than she bargained for. Just two days in, their car breaks down in a thunderstorm, and the women take refuge inside Blake Hall, an ancient aristocrat’s lair with a long and rumored past. As guests of the British aristocracy, these out-of-place Americans discover a mysterious clue to a centuries-old murder that has remained unsolved–until now at least.
Influenced by the novels of Jane Austen, Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Romancing a Mystery is smart, savvy and at times, warmly romantic.
“I absolutely fell in love with Romancing a Mystery, by Evelyn Cullet. Being a REAL Jane Austen fan, as soon as I read in the description that this one was influenced by her books, I knew I just had to read it. The description was correct; this is very much like a MODERN DAY Jane Austen novel. All of the characters in this book were vibrant and had personality, and I fell in love with all of them.” – Amazon Review
“Take three young American women with a thirst for adventure and place them in an historic English Manor with British aristocracy, quaint English customs like hunting and a very conservative way of life – what do you get? Dynamite! Sit back and enjoy Evelyn Cullett’s riveting read.” – Amazon Review
