Nocturne for a Widow (Sybil Ingram Victorian Mysteries Book 1)

The ghost may be the least of her problems… When vivacious actress Sybil Ingram becomes a widow on her wedding night, her only legacy is a Gothic revival manor in the wilds of the Hudson River Valley. However, the eerie mansion comes with two tenants. One is a hostile ghost. The second, and far worse, is the most insolent, dangerous, maddeningly gorgeous man she’s ever met–former violinist Roderick Brooke.

As Sybil and Roderick engage in a battle of wills–and wits–an even greater threat arises: the mysterious queen of local society, Mrs. Lavinia Dove. For reasons that Sybil can’t imagine, Mrs. Dove is determined to have Brooke House and Roderick for herself…if necessary, by deadly means.

Nocturne for a Widow is a delightful fusion of gothic romance, mystery, and romantic comedy, perfect for readers who love Victorian women sleuths like Anna Lee Huber’s Lady Darby, Penny Richards’s Lilly Long, Deanna Raybourn’s Lady Julia Grey, and Elizabeth Peters’s Amelia Peabody. And be sure not to miss Sybil’s continuing adventures in The Last Serenade, A Haunting Reprise, and the short story “Christmas at Gravesend”!
