New Historical Mystery Series from Anna Loan-Wilsey

A LACK OF TEMPERANCE
by Anna Loan-Wilsey coming September 25, 2012  from Kensington

“Have Typewriter Will Travel” 

In October 2012, Kensington Publishing will release the first book in the Hattie Davish “Have Typewriter Will Travel” series by Anna Loan- Wilsey, historical mysteries (with a dash of romance) that feature the sleuthing adventures of a traveling secretary in the late-19th century.  The debut, A LACK OF TEMPERANCE, draws on the unique character and history of a Victorian tourist town in the throes of Prohibition.

 From Anna Loan-Wilsey comes the first installment of a new historical mystery series featuring Hattie Davish, a traveling secretary who arrives in a small Ozark town only to discover her new employer has disappeared…

On the eve of the heated presidential election of 1892, Miss Hattie Davish arrives in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, a scenic resort town where those without the scent of whiskey on their breath have the plight of temperance on their tongues. Summoned for her services as a private secretary, Hattie is looking forward to exploring the hills, indulging her penchant for botany—and getting to know the town’s handsome doctor. But it’s hard to get her job done with her employer nowhere to be found…

An army of unassuming women wielding hatchets have descended on the quiet Ozark village, destroying every saloon in their path—and leaving more than a few enemies in their wake. So when their beloved leader, Mother Trevelyan, is murdered, it’s easy to point fingers. Now that she’s working for a dead woman, Hattie turns to her trusty typewriter to get to the truth. And as she follows a trail of cryptic death threats, she’ll come face to face with a killer far more dangerous than the Demon Rum…

A wonderful read from a welcome addition to the genre. This one shouldn’t be missed—it has it all!” —Emily Brightwell
