STORY SOUND l JULY THE MARQUIS TAKES A BRIDE M.C. Beaton
Miss Jennie Bemyss was in a position that any intelligent young lady would envy. The wealthy, worldly Marquis of Charrington proposed a marriage of convenience that would leave him free to pursue his pleasures, and leave Jennie free of his undoubtedly depraved desires. At the same time, handsome Guy Chalmers, whom Jennie had loved since childhood, proposed to aid her in enjoying her freedom. Jennie should have felt relief at being left alone at last by a man whom she should despise. She should have felt even happier to be courted by a man whom she adored. Why, then, did she feel so confused?

STRANGEWAYS TO OLDHAM Andrea Frazer
Lady Amanda Golightly of Belchester Towers is a person in complete contrast to the stereotypical image of her upper-class breeding. She is short, portly, and embarrassingly forthright. On a visit to a local nursing home she unexpectedly discovers a long-lost friend, Hugo Cholmondley-Crichton-Crump – and stumbles upon a murder. The pair turn to sleuthing after Lady Amanda reports her appalling discovery to the local police inspector who treats her as a silly old biddy with an over-active imagination. Her outrage prompts her to teach the impertinent young whipper-snapper a lesson, and she and Hugo (zimmer frame in tow) start investigating, only for murder to become a distressingly frequent occurrence . . .
