Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, produced by Voices of Today, and now available at Audible! This is a completely unique all-female production, with Linda Barrans as Dr. Watson, Cate Barratt as Sherlock Holmes, Grace Keller Scotch as all the female characters, and Elizabeth as all of the remaining male characters, from Inspector Lestrade to Grimsby Roylott, to the King of Bohemia. There are twelve classic stories in this wonderful collection, including “A Scandal in Bohemia,” “The Red-Headed League,” and “The Adventure of the Speckled Band” (Elizabeth’s personal favorite).
Elizabeth’s latest release is the first in the Ginger Gold mystery series by Lee Strauss: Murder on the SS Rosa, now available at Audible! Elizabeth will be narrating the next two books in this 1920s cozy mystery series – Murder at Hartigan House and Murder at Bray Manor – in early 2018.
It’s 1923 and young war widow fashionista Ginger Gold makes a cross-Atlantic journey with her companion Haley Higgins to London, England, to settle her father’s estate. When the ship’s captain is found dead, Ginger is only too happy to lend her assistance to the handsome Chief Inspector Basil Reed.
The SS Rosa delivers a convincing array of suspects – the wife, the mistress, a jealous crew mate. To Ginger’s dismay, her name has been added to the list!
With a little help from Ginger’s dog Boss, Ginger and Haley navigate the clues (those wartime operative skills come in handy). They must solve the case and clear Ginger’s name before they dock – and oh, whatever shall she wear?
A fascinating introduction to a character that will rival Miss Fisher in the cozy genre set in the period between world wars.
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of the latest book in the popular Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland: Privateer, book #5, now available at Audible. If you haven’t yet listened to this swashbuckling SFF adventure series, start with Into the Dark, and continue with Mutineer, The Little Ships, and HMS Nightingale. Be sure to listen to the audio sample of the latest release!
Even with no war on, there are always battles to fight.
A cease-fire in the war with Hanover leaves Lieutenant Alexis Carew on half-pay, in-atmosphere, and with her ship laid up in ordinary until called upon once more for the needs of the Service. She was, at least, lucky enough to be in her home star system when her last ship, HMS Nightingale, paid off, unlike much of her former crew.
She’s left to help manage her family lands, though still with no certainty she’ll be allowed to inherit them. It would be a tranquil, peaceful life, if not for the influx of asteroid miners seeking their fortunes, the uncertainties of her inheritance, and the nagging certainty that her current life is not what she really wants.
She’d give anything to command a ship again.
Elizabeth’s recording of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey, produced by Essential Audiobooks, is now available at Audible! This brand-new production of Austen’s earliest completed novel joins Elizabeth’s best-selling version of Persuasion, released by Essential Audio earlier this year.
Jane Austen’s first novel, Northanger Abbey, published posthumously in 1818, tells the story of Catherine Morland and her dangerously sweet nature, innocence, and sometime self-delusion.
Though Austen’s fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature. The satirical Northanger Abbey pokes fun at the Gothic novel while earnestly emphasizing caution to the female sex.
As a young woman of 21, Grace did not think it unusual to marry a man of 40. Although she wed a kind and respectful individual, something remained absent from their relationship. Before she could fully understand her growing despondency and restless emotions, England declared war on Germany. Like a jigsaw puzzle turned upside down, the pieces of Grace’s life scatter in different directions. When her husband leaves for France to fight for his king and country, Grace is left behind to face years of loneliness, temptation, and loss. After the declaration of peace, the picture puzzle of her life is reassembled, but paints a vastly different scene than it did before.
The latest Angela Marchmont mystery novel by Clara Benson is now available at Audible. The Riddle at Gipsy’s Mile is the third novel in this series that Elizabeth has narrated; the others are The Mystery at Underwood House and The Treasure at Poldarrow Point. The books in this excellent period mystery series have garnered many five-star reviews at Audible.
Lost in the mists of the Romney Marsh, Angela Marchmont stumbles upon the body of a woman whose face has been disfigured – presumably to prevent recognition. Who is she, and what was she doing out there in the middle of nowhere? The search for answers will take Angela from a grand stately home to London’s most fashionable – and disreputable – nightclub, and into a murky world of illegal drinking, jazz music, and lost souls.
Elizabeth is excited to annouce the release of her eighth collaboration with best-selling author Abigail Reynolds: Conceit and Concealment, her latest Pride and Prejudice variation novel, now available at Audible. For a complete list of all the novels that Elizabeth has narrated from this series, please visit the Credits page.
Pride & Prejudice meets alternate history.
Six years after Napoleon’s invasion of England….
Fitzwilliam Darcy is a traitor. He even admits to collaborating with Napoleon’s troops. And Elizabeth Bennet despises all traitors.
But she can’t make sense of Darcy. He doesn’t act like a traitor. He risks his own safety to save young women from the French. And how can she despise a man who loves puppies? Something about him doesn’t add up – and she finds him far too attractive.
Then Darcy’s carefully constructed world crumbles, and he must entrust his closest-held secret to Elizabeth. To protect that secret, Elizabeth must disappear entirely, leaving her family and Darcy behind, to plunge herself into the dizzying world of fashionable London and the dangers of the Loyalist Resistance. Nothing will ever be the same again.
Darcy is determined to find Elizabeth. Now that she knows the truth about him, there’s nothing to keep them apart – nothing, that is, until the day Darcy is forced to choose between his country and the life of the woman he loves….
