RSVP TO MURDER
The Blackwell and Watson Time-Travel Mysteries
A new twist on the English country house mystery.
Embarking on their most daring time-travel experiment to date, Depression-era cop Steven Blackwell and his 21st-century partner-in-crime, Olivia Watson, travel to the Adirondack Mountains for a Christmas party at one of the legendary Great Camps. Their host, a wealthy New York publisher, has planned a weekend filled with holiday activities, but, as the last guest arrives, temperatures plummet and a blizzard hits. Before long, the area is buried in snow, the roads are impassable, and the publisher is poisoned.
Unwilling to wait until the local police arrive, the victim’s widow convinces Steven to launch an unofficial investigation. Soon, a family member goes missing and Steven and Olivia discover a second victim. Trapped with a killer, Steven and Olivia race against the clock before the murderer strikes again.

And then she gives us more. Time-travel! RSVP to Murder delivers on so many levels. Snap on your seatbelt and travel with Steven and Olivia to 1934, you won’t regret it!

A Great Camp in the Adirondacks serves up a sumptuous setting of plump armchairs, roaring fireplaces, and the heady scent of Christmas pines-all begging to be settled into with this thumping good vintage whodunit set in the 1930s. Outside a blizzard roars, closing the road to the rustic lodge. Inside the host is murdered and a dozen guests, family and servants are snapping at one another’s heels-each with a secret to hide. Cleverly plotted with plot-twists aplenty and some time-travel to boot, this immersive mystery is a gem.
