The First Two Books of 2023: A Bronte Mystery and a Victorian Gothic 'Fascination'.

 I am very excited to give a peek into my upcoming book reads and reviews of 2023!  These two books were on my wishlist as they are both written by British female authors whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years. I am very grateful and excited to be able to read proofs of A Gift of Poison - the fourth novel in the Bronte Mystery series written by Rowan Coleman under the name Bella Ellis. BOOK DESCRIPTION Haworth 1847  – Anne and Emily Brontë have had their books accepted for publication, while Charlotte’s has been rejected everywhere, creating a strained atmosphere at the parsonage. At the same time, a shocking court case has recently concluded, acquitting a workhouse master of murdering his wife by poison. Everyone thinks this famously odious and abusive man is guilty. However, he insists he is many bad things but not a murderer. When an attempt is made on his life, he believes it to be the same person who killed his wife and applies to the detecting sisters for their help.
