A Crimson Warning by Tasha Alexander

Available in hardcover 25 October 2011

Here's a sneak peek at Tasha Alexander's newest novel, A Crimson Warning:

"Secrets prove deadly in this new novel featuring Lady Emily Hargreaves. Some very prominent people in London are waking up to find their doorsteps smeared with red paint, the precursor to the revelation of a dark secret – and worse – by someone who enjoys destroying lives.

Newly returned to her home in Mayfair, Lady Emily Hargreaves is looking forward to enjoying the delights of the season. The delights, that is, as defined by her own eccentricities—reading The Aeneid, waltzing with her dashing husband, and joining the Women’s Liberal Federation in the early stages of its campaign to win votes for women. But an audacious vandal disturbs the peace in the capitol city, splashing red paint on the neat edifices of the homes of London’s elite. This mark, impossible to hide, presages the revelation of scandalous secrets, driving the hapless victims into disgrace, despair and even death. Soon, all of London high society is living in fear of learning who will be the next target, and Lady Emily and her husband, Colin, favorite agent of the crown, must uncover the identity and reveal the motives of the twisted mind behind it all before another innocent life is lost."

I enjoy Tasha Alexander's lovely style, so I'm committed to following her handsome sleuthing couple, Emily and Colin Hargreaves through their next adventure!

I think you will enjoy the series I am reading right now (reviews up on my blog). Though it is a series you could read them as stand alone books as well.
