Starting now through the summer I will be choosing and featuring books here from the indieBRAG Library that I am interesting in reading. Not only will I feature them, I will talk about why I chose them as well. IndieBRAG’s mission is to discover talented self-published authors and help them give their work the attention and recognition it deserves. Their primary focus is fiction across a wide range of genres; however, they selectively consider non-fiction books.
Authors, if you feel your book can meet indieBRAG’s high standards, they encourage you to nominate it, but they cannot make any guarantees that it will pass either the initial screening or the subsequent review by their readers. On average, only 10-15% of the books they consider are awarded the B.R.A.G. Medallion and are presented on their website and promoted on various social media sites. Conversely, they do not make public the titles of any books or the names of their authors that have been reviewed but were not selected to receive a B.R.A.G. Medallion.
This award is an honor indeed!
Deadly Engagement: A Georgian Historical Mystery by Lucinda Brant
Spring 1763. Career diplomat Alec Halsey returns to London to the shocking news his estranged brother, the Earl of Delvin, has not only killed his friend in a duel but is engaged to the woman Alec hoped to marry. The dead man’s mother wants Alec to investigate, so he reluctantly attends a weekend house party celebrating the engagement. Houseguests get more than they bargained for when a lady’s maid is murdered, the bride-to-be is attacked, and a guest is shot dead. Uncovering a connection between these sinister acts and his brother’s duel, Alec confronts a cruel twist of fate and why his brother will go to any lengths to ruin him in Polite Society.
Why I picked this book to add to my reading pile:
The 18th Century is a good era to write about. One of my favorites in fact. Actually I have so many favorite eras in history. I’m also partial to stories that take place in England and I do love a good mystery story! Author Lucinda Brant is an extremely talented writer and story-teller. It is an honor to have her as part of the indieBRAG family.
Lately on social media I have been really stressing the fact that I want to see more male protagonist roles. I’m also over the “often times” stereotypical characters that I am seeing in books. I am delighted when I come across a story that has what I am looking for. I am sure this book will meet my expectations and look forward to meeting Lucinda’s character, Alec Halsey!
