Murder is never far from this sexy couple . . . even during the holidays!

Their honeymoon abruptly ended by the untimely death of Alcott Howard, Clive and Henrietta return to Highbury, where Clive discovers all is not as it should be. Increasingly convinced that his father’s death was not an accident, Clive launches his own investigation, despite his mother’s belief that he has become “mentally disturbed” with grief. Henrietta eventually joins forces with Clive on their first real case, which becomes darker—and deadlier—than they imagined as they get closer to the truth behind Alcott’s troubled affairs.

Meanwhile, Henrietta’s sister, Elsie, begins, at Henrietta’s orchestration, to take classes at a women’s college—an attempt to evade her troubles and prevent any further romantic temptations. When she meets a bookish German custodian at the school, however, he challenges her to think for herself . . . even as she discovers some shocking secrets about his past life.

About Michelle Cox

Michelle Cox is the author of the Henrietta and Inspector Howard seriesMichelle Cox is the author of the multiple award-winning Henrietta and Inspector Howard series as well as Novel Notes of Local Lore, a weekly blog dedicated to Chicago’s forgotten residents. She suspects she may have once lived in the 1930s and, having yet to discover a handy time machine lying around, has resorted to writing about the era as a way of getting herself back there. (Her books have been praised by Kirkus, Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and many others, so she might be on to something.) Unbeknownst to most, Cox hoards board games she doesn’t have time to play and is, not surprisingly, addicted to period dramas and big band music. Also, marmalade.

Praise

2019 Readers’ Favorite Awards, Honorable Mention in Fiction (Mystery/Historical)
2019 Next Generation Indie Book Awards: Finalist in Romance

“Entertaining . . . composed of large dollops of romance and a soupçon of mystery, this confection will appeal!”Publishers Weekly

“History fans will fall in love all over again with this latest installment in a compelling historical drama to rival the likes of Downton Abbey and Pride and Prejudice. A Veil Removed marks another triumph in a gorgeously romantic, but also seriously compelling mystery series.” —Readers Favorite

“Cox draws textured visuals of a 1930s Chicago mansion replete with cherrywood drink carts, embroidered goose down pillows, brand new wireless radios, Worth gowns, Rothschild coats, and the music of Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey. It puts us back in the romantically turbulent 1930s Chicago. This engaging story charms us.” —BookTrib

“These two are a delight as an investigative duo. They work well together and their banter is delightful. If you are looking for a clever series to read this will be for you!” —Broken Teepee

“As Henrietta’s extended family continues to develop, they are rewarded with stories of their own in this engaging historical-mystery series.” —Booklist
