Davenport House is the first book in a family saga following the wealthy Davenports and their servants in 1915 America. Mary Davenport is a 22-year-old idealist who worries that the world in the Progressive Era is leaving her behind. She lives isolated in the Pennsylvania countryside with her affluent and secretive family. When her father dies suddenly, Mary becomes pained with grief and increasingly suspicious of those around her. A humble servant girl has the chance of a lifetime to become a lady’s companion. Costly dresses, exquisite rooms, and fine dinners are pleasant distractions from what is really happening in the house.
Speak of the Wicked
Now a chief agent for USCAB’s paranormal division, newlywed Mandy Rowling has arrived. Unfortunately, Manhattan’s social elite have little regard for her, except for the very wealthy Mrs. Karen Rosenberg who, it turns out, is in need of someone with paranormal skills. During a holiday gathering turned scammy séance at the Rosenberg mansion, a prickly ghost hints that Mr. Rosenberg—believed to have passed away due to an unfortunate accident—may have actually died of suspicious causes. Long hidden secrets are revealed, casting blame on the Upper East Side’s crème-de-le-crème, and proving everyone should be thankful for the girl who can speak to spirits in this wild ninth installment of the madcap Manhattan Mystery series.
