Return to the world of Emma Jameson’s bestselling Blue series in book #5, Blue Blooded.
Tony Hetheridge is stepping into a new career—private detective. As a Chief Superintendent for New Scotland Yard, he spent years presiding over the “Toff Squad,” handling murders that intersected with the rich and powerful. Now that mantle passes to his wife, Kate, while Tony is free to pick and choose his cases. The first: the strange suicide of Mariah Keene and the simultaneous disappearance of her twin, Mark. The twenty-one-year-old twins were Uni dropouts, recreational drug users, and dabblers in the unusual spiritual discipline called sacred geometry. But those risk factors pale compare to their association with the unjustly acquitted triple murderer, Sir Duncan Godington.
As Tony goes undercover in the City of Westminster to search for Mark and discover what really happened to Mariah, tempestuous Kate struggles to balance family life with work. She and Tony are determined to adopt nine-year-old Henry; her estranged sister, Maura, is suing to regain full custody. At Scotland Yard’s new HQ, her best mate Paul Bhar is being put out to pasture while Kate finds herself up for a long-sought promotion. And her first solo investigation, the high-tech murder of a politician, takes an unexpected turn toward Tony’s case—and Sir Duncan. Is it mere coincidence? Or has Sir Duncan’s reckoning come at last?

The author would like to thank all her readers for their loyalty, patience, and kind words. Especially their patience!
The two questions new readers always ask are, "Will there be more Hetheridge--'Blue'--books?" and "What else have you written?"
Regarding question one, will there be more Lord & Lady Hetheridge ("Blue") books, the answer is yes. When asked when she plans to end the series, she replies, "Never." When she sits down to write book #7, it will be called Untrue Blue.
To answer question two, Ms. Jameson has two other series: the Dr. Benjamin Bones Mysteries and the Magic of Cornwall. Set during the Second World War, the Bones books are romantic cozy mysteries that take place in wild, beautiful Cornwall. Book one of that series is Marriage Can Be Murder; book two is Divorce Can Be Deadly. The companion series, Magic of Cornwall, are novellas that touch on the mystic traditions and folklore of the West Country. This includes Dr. Bones and the Christmas Wish and Dr. Bones and the Lost Love Letter. The next Bones book will be called Friendship Can Be Fatal.
So far I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in the Lord and Lady Hetheridge series! Love all the characters and they feel authentic to me. The mysteries and crimes they encounter are quite good but it’s the relationships and friendships, both at home and work, that keep me coming back for more.
This is a clean and well written series that is throughly enjoyable. I had to keep reading each book, and found them hard to put down once I started each book.
The characters are all believable and individualized.
I’m so glad I stumbled onto this series! Wonderful characters, and interesting and engrossing plots make these books real page turners. I’ve read all 5 in the series in about 2 weeks. Often staying up way past my bedtime just to finish one more chapter. Ms. Jameson is a natural born storyteller. I only hope we don’t have to wait too long for book 6. I can’t wait for Lord and Lady Hetheridge’s next adventure!
