Publisher Description

Wrexford and Sloane must unravel secrets within secrets—including a few that entangle their own hearts—when they reunite to solve a string of shocking murders that have horrified Regency London . . .
 
Though Charlotte Sloane’s secret identity as the controversial cartoonist A.J. Quill is safe with the Earl of Wrexford, she’s ill prepared for the rippling effects sharing the truth about her background has cast over their relationship. She thought a bit of space might improve the situation. But when her cousin is murdered and his twin brother is accused of the gruesome crime, Charlotte immediately turns to Wrexford for help in proving the young man’s innocence. Though she finds the brooding scientist just as enigmatic and intense as ever, their partnership is now marked by an unfamiliar tension that seems to complicate every encounter.
 
Despite this newfound complexity, Wrexford and Charlotte are determined to track down the real killer. Their investigation leads them on a dangerous chase through Mayfair’s glittering ballrooms and opulent drawing rooms, where gossip and rumors swirl to confuse the facts. The more Charlotte and Wrexford try to unknot the truth, the more tangled it becomes. But they must solve the case soon, before the killer’s madness seizes another victim . . .
 
Praise for the Wrexford & Sloane Historical Mysteries
 
“Penrose deftly combines a Regency romance with a tricky mystery that delves into social unrest and the darker side of this storied period.”
Kirkus Reviews

 
“Its complex story line and authentic historical details bring the early days of the Industrial Revolution vividly to life. Bound to fascinate readers of C.S. Harris and even fans of Victorian mysteries.”

Intriguing Regency Murder Mystery

I received an ARC of this book to read in exchange for a fair review. Murder at Kensington Palace is the third book in Andrea Penrose’s Wexford & Sloane Historical Mystery series. This is the first book I have read in the series so it can be read as a stand-alone but the first thing I did on finishing this one was purchase the other two. When her beloved cousin is murdered in a manner that looks to be the work of a serial killer nicknamed The Bloody Butcher and his twin is charged with the murder Charlotte Sloan who is also satirical cartoonist A.J. Quill knows that she must prove her cousin innocent and that to do so she will need all of the help that she can gather including that of Alexander the Earl of Wrexford. When the clues lead to the higher echelons of society Charlotte comes to the difficult realisation that she will have to leave the secure little world she has created for herself and reclaim her place in society as Lady Charlotte daughter of the Earl of Walcott. With lots of twists and turns and a truly evil villain this story will keep you avidly turning the pages to find out what happens next. Publishing Date September 24, 2019.
