Things I am researching this week: government procurement policies of the 1930s and ladies' underwear. ... See MoreSee Less

Rumors about bloomers?

Check out Amber Butchart for ladies underwear

Who were the Government procuring ladies' underwear for?

The second one sounds more fun.

My husband would be all over this if I said it aloud. Lol!

Nice combo 👍

An intriguing combination...

Can't wait to read what this is about. Freddy must be up to something

My grandmother had quite the arsenal in her lingerie drawer. Talk about, 'if looks could kill', some of the boning certainly could. Have you found the undetectable weapon?😄

Strange pant fellows but OK :)

The two seem to go hand in hand :-)

Welcome to a new week! Believe it or not, Im starting to think I might get this book finished and published in the foreseeable future. I have a very, very tentative date of mid-July - although dont hold me to that, as my plots seem to be getting more and more complicated these days and theres lots to untangle. Anyway, while I get on with the untangling, heres the cover for you to look at.

Just got to break the news to my children that they'll have to get their own meals for the next month.

Can't wait for a great summer read! As for the kiddies, if they are old enough, a hot dog in the microwave and chips say 'picnic'! 😻

Hey!! Keep Angela in the loop!! Freddie is OK, but Angela had to deal with stealth, dignity & matching wits! Any idiot in those days could dash about & slide off roofs! She has to be subtle, elegant! And that romance you left dangling is criminal!! Let her daughter do the 'hiding in the closet to eavesdrop"if you simply MUST go bohemian! I've adored Angela from the moment, in book one, when she made thoughtful, startling, observations about the scene & quiet suggestions! Freddie gets too silly & embarrassed, inspite of the"growing & grooming" you've done for him! But I still look forward to delving into a good mystery coming up! Congrats!!

Yay! Looking forward to it!! Thanks Clara Benson!!

Can’t wait! 🎉

I cannot wait!!! I miss my favorite characters so!!!!

Will you ever bring back Angela Marchmont? I really liked. I have tried any of the Freddy series yet. Plan on reading them starting today.

Looking forward to it immensely!

I am in love with Freddy. 😍

Thanks for the update, Clara! Would love a new Clara Benson to read ❤️

Lovely news. Thank you and can’t wait xxx 🥳

We will savor it, in the fullness of time. ☺

Can’t wait!!!

Oooo maybe in time for holiday reading!

Yeah. Can’t wait

Woohoo!!! 😁

Yay!

YAY!

Cannot wait!

Cannot wait!!!!

We haven't heard from Corky Beckwith for a while, have we?

Corky inserted a sticky-looking sweet into his mouth and gazed across to where Gertie was standing with her mother, waiting for the air display to begin.
‘I see you’re here with Lady Gertrude McAloon. Any news you’d care to share?’
‘What sort of news?’
‘Oh, you know: engagements, elopements, that sort of thing. She’s always good for a paragraph or two on a slow news day—all the McAloon girls are, in fact—but she seems to have been quiet lately. Any dirt there?’
‘None that I’d be prepared to tell you.’
‘Never mind. Whatever it is I shall find it out,’ said Corky imperturbably, crunching his sweet.
‘Or pluck it fully formed from whichever part of your body you’re using for a brain these days,’ said Freddy.
‘You malign me unjustly, young Freddy. However, you are right in that one must allow oneself to use a little poetic licence in these matters. The Muse must not be denied. Am I not as much an artist as Leonardo da Vinci or Michelangelo? Though of course we tread very different paths as we strive for mastery of our chosen fields. Man cannot live by mere labour alone, for he must have some kind of release for the fire of creation that burns deep within his soul, and whether it result in an exquisite form in polished marble to which thousands flock in order to admire, or a smartly-written piece in an organ sworn to uphold the national dignity, the spur is the same.’
‘Look here, are you planning to go on all day? Because I’d rather like to watch the air show,’ said Freddy.

Conclusion: I need to say "Look here" more often.

Corky is so irrepressible!

Can't wait!

When is this released?

Can't wait!

Love it!

Corky is rather full of it, isn't he? 💕💕

Waiting with baited breathe 👍
