A deadly secret that won’t stay buried…
It is the fall of 1896, and Miss
Concordia Wells is hip-deep in the usual tumult of a lady professor’s life:
classes, clubs, student pranks, and the unending drama generated by the girls
she lives with on campus. Complicating this normality is the new Lady Principal,
whom the students have nicknamed “the Ogre.” The woman seems bent on making
Concordia’s life miserable.
Events take a grave turn, however, when an
ancient Egyptian amulet donated to the college mysteriously disappears, the
donor is found murdered, and his daughter - Concordia’s best friend - confesses
to killing him.
Desperate for answers, Concordia unravels a 20-year-old
secret, closely guarded by men now dead. But such secrets can be dangerous for
the daughters left behind, including Concordia herself. Can she make sense of
the mystery that has bound together their fates, before it’s too late?
Absorbing in its memorable characters, non-stop plot twists, and depiction
of life in a late-nineteenth century women’s college, Unseemly Pursuits is the
sequel to the first book in the series, Dangerous and Unseemly. Fans of Harriet
Vane and Charlotte Pitt will find in Concordia Wells a new heroine to fall in
