My Review: London 1988 – Madame Flora Flowerdew the Spirit Medium used to read spirits on the stage, these days she prefers seances in private. She has a cute Pomeranian dog called Chou – Chou. Her friend Evie works for a newspaper and sometimes helps Flora. When the Duke of Everton appears during a seance, Flora is spooked, as are the family who requested she call the spirit in. She becomes tangled in the story by connecting with Benedict Everton and trying to solve the puzzle which lead to cicrus visits and all kinds of beautifully random places.
What an fabulously exciting mystery book, I really enjoyed finding out the strands. Wonderful twists and turns that kept me hooked.
Flowerdew and the Mystery of the Duke’s Diamonds
Flora Flowerdew has a secret. The former Florrie Gubbins, music hall dancer, is now Madame Flowerdew, one of London’s most renowned spirit mediums. But it’s actually her beloved Pomeranian dog, Chou-Chou, who can see the ghosts. One of her most lucrative seances, for the wealthy Petrie family whose daughter is about to marry a handsome young duke, goes chaotically awry. The duke’s late, and very irate, grandfather demands Flora and his grandson Benedict find the long-missing family diamonds—even the search becomes littered with mayhem and murder! Can Flora discover the jewels before she loses her career, her sanity—and her heart? Sparks fly as Flora, Benedict, and Chou-Chou pursue the truth of the diamonds’ disappearance in this lighthearted, cozy historical mystery set in foggy, gas-lit London

Author Bio – Amanda McCabe wrote her first romance at the age of sixteen–a vast historical epic starring all her friends as the characters, written secretly during algebra class (and her parents wondered why math was not her strongest subject…)
She’s never since used algebra, but her books (set in a variety of time periods–Regency, Victorian, Tudor, Renaissance, and 1920s) have been nominated for many awards, including the RITA Award, the Romantic Times BOOKReviews Reviewers’ Choice Award, the Booksellers Best, the National Readers Choice Award, and the Holt Medallion. She lives in New Mexico with her lovely husband, along with far too many books and a spoiled rescue dog.
When not writing or reading, she loves yoga, collecting cheesy travel souvenirs, and watching the Food Network–even though she doesn’t cook. She also writes as Amanda Allen… Please visit her at http://ammandamccabe.com
