The Deadly Hours

An anthology with Susanna Kearsley, C.S. Harris, and Anna Lee Huber

From 1733 Italy to Edinburgh in 1831 to a series of chilling murders in 1870 London, and a lethal game of revenge decades later, the watch touches lives with misfortune, until it comes into the reach of one young woman who might be able to stop it for good.

“Charming… Four interconnected visits to a world of danger, wit, beauty and genuine romance. Treat yourself!”―ANNE PERRY, internationally bestselling author”

This book is a particular favorite of mine, as I had the opportunity to work with three dear writer friends on it.  I’ve long admired the works of Susanna Kearsley (The Winter Sea is my favorite!), C.S. Harris (the fabulous Sebastian St. Cyr series) and Anna Lee Huber (the delightful Lady Darby series).

Anna had the initial idea to work on an anthology, my contribution was the idea of a cursed pocket watch, and Susanna developed the concept of the stories flowing out of an 18th century fairy tale.  C.S. came to the project after it was started and was integral at helping us fit the pieces together to ensure the stories flowed well together.

Hope you enjoy these interconnected tales!
