An Untimely Frost by Penny Richards -- Book Beginnings & Friday56


I decided to take a little break from my rom-coms and head back to my beloved historical mysteries. Luckily, Kensington approved my request for their upcoming release of Penny Richards' An Untimely Frost -- the first in the new Lilly Long Mysteries series. I'm so glad that I did because once I started I had a hard time putting it down!

Lilly is a theater actress, having been raised by Pierce and Rose in a theater troupe ever since her mother was murdered when she was eleven years old. Now, in her early twenties, she decides to use her acting skills in an altogether different manner by becoming a detective under the famed Allan Pinkerton

Richards has birthed a wonderfully believable heroine in Lilly. You understand where she's coming from and how she gets to where she's going every step of the way. I was cheering her on (sometimes out loud) from the very beginning all the way to the "ohmigoodness what?!?" end.

An Untimely Frost is being released in July 26th. I've already the second book in the series to my wishlist even though it's not due out until next May!

As always, Friday 56 (share from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader.
