Happy Tuesday Bibliophiles 😊
Today I’m delighted to be taking part of an exciting cover reveal in collaboration with HQ.
The highly anticipated second novel from Louise Hare, Miss Aldridge Regrets, is a murder mystery set on the Queen Mary in 1936 following aspiring singer Lena as she travels from the smoky jazz halls of London to New York to star in a new Broadway play. But when a murder takes place on the ship, Lena realises that her greatest performance has already begun.
From the author of This Lovely City comes a new historical murder mystery, this time set on board the Queen Mary
Lena Aldridge is wondering if life has passed her by. The dazzling theatre career she hoped for hasn’t worked out. Instead, she’s stuck singing in a sticky-floored basement club in Soho and her married lover has just left her. She has nothing to look forward to until a stranger offers her the chance of a lifetime: a starring role on Broadway and a first-class ticket on the Queen Mary bound for New York.
After a murder at the club, the timing couldn’t be better and Lena jumps at the chance to escape England. Until death follows her onto the ship and she realises that her greatest performance has already begun.
Because someone is making manoeuvres behind the scenes, and there’s only one thing on their mind…
Miss Aldridge Regrets is the exquisite new novel from Louise Hare, the author of This Lovely City. A brilliant murder mystery, it also explores class, race and pre-WWII politics, and will leave readers reeling from the beauty and power of it.
