    Agatha and Anthony Award nominee Susan Wittig Albert has garnered popular and critical acclaim for her whimsical mysteries based on the life and times of Beatrix Potter. Set in the summertime splendor of 1913 England, this eighth tale finds Beatrix eager to marry her fiancé, solicitor William Heelis. But a few obstacles are still blocking the happy couple’s path to the altar - like the troubled remodeling of Castle Cottage, Will and Beatrix’s future home.

    It's 1905, and to recover from the loss of her fiance, Potter moves into a small farmhouse in Sawrey. Populated by colorful characters, both humans and critters, her new life is full of promise. That is, until a villager dies and murder is suspected. Now it's up to this amateur sleuth to find a killer roaming the English countryside.

    Beatrix is breaking from overbearing. Parents, doing what she loves.

    Story

    Life is not easy for the poor relations of England’s upper crust, but fate and clever schemes bring them together. Lady Fortescue and Colonel Sandhurst hatch a plan: What if they were to transform her decrepit Bond Street home into a posh hotel, offering their guests the pleasure of being waited upon by nobility? With the help of other down-and-out aristocrats, they do just that, and London’s newest hotel, The Poor Relation, is born. The establishment is an immediate hit with London’s most illustrious citizens, save the Duke of Rowcester....

    Story
    If you could sum up Lady Fortescue Steps Out in three words, what would they be?

    Strong, wise, creative, honest, inner compass which in her day was totally au courant.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The tenacity of Philip. He was unlikable in many ways and motivations were always selfish but we all have our motives at times hidden under a smile or a ruse.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The moment when the Duke realized that Lady Fortescue was not a thief but had been starving and desperate. How misguided are judgements.
