About this Event
Vanessa Riley makes her historical mystery debut with the first Lady Worthing Mystery, which touches on race and class diversity of the Regency-era.
This vibrant and inclusive new series combines Riley's signature emotional richness and attention to detail with a strong, clever, and captivating heroine.
When Lady Abigail Worthing discovers her neighbor's body on her property, she is concerned that she will be under suspicion of M**der since she and the dead woman's husband were at odds, and she is a woman of color.
Vanessa Riley is the author of several books. She writes Regency Romances and Historical Fiction of dazzling multi-culture communities with powerful persons of color. Vanessa writes for historical romance readers who admire and acquire books that showcase women who find joy in sweeping kisses and strong sisterhoods. Even in the darkness, she promises to give you laughs and to show you how light always prevails and how love always, always wins.
Vanessa juggles mothering a teen, cooking for her military-man husband, and speaking at women's and STEM events. She loves baking her Trinidadian grandma's cake recipes and collecting Irish crochet lace. She’s known for her sweeping romances and humorous delivery of poignant truths. You can catch her writing from the comfort of her southern porch with a cup of Earl Grey tea.
