IMPOLITE SOCIETY going to the printers!
As usual, running a little behind... Cynthia Smith's second Emma Rhodes high-society mystery, Impolite Society (978-0-9792709-7-0, paperback, $13), is finally going to the printers today. Anyone who's a fan of Nancy Martin (the Blackbird Sisters mysteries), Kerry Greenwood (the Phryne Fisher mysteries), Marne Davis Kellogg (the Kick Keswick mysteries), and Jane Stanton Hitchcock (Social Crimes) should definitely pick up a copy of the first Emma Rhodes book, Noblesse Oblige (978-0-9792709-4-9, paperback, $13). And if you're already a fan, look for Impolite Society in stores in late April.
“Wonderful! By Dominick Dunne out of Flora Poste, with a healthy mixture of Jessica Fletcher, the effervescent Miss Rhodes resolves sticky situations without ever getting her Manolos muddy. Encore!”—Kerry Greenwood, author of the Phryne Fisher novels
“I have been charmed right out of my high-heeled sandals by Cynthia Smith’s Impolite Society . . . a refreshing delight.”—The Washington Times
And check out the cover (to right) of the third Emma novel, Misleading Ladies (978-1-935415-04-6, paperback, $13), which comes out in March 2010. #4 (Silver and Guilt) and #5 (Royals and Rogues) are scheduled to be reprinted next summer.
