The third Dupree Book is here!
I'm happy to report that Corpse at the National Gallery is finally out!
When Charlotte and Ruth Dupree attend the National Portrait Gallery's annual gala, they expect an evening of fine dining and mingling with Washington's social elite. However, a dead body and an accusation of murder quickly change their plans. In the days that follow, names of suspects begin to circulate around parties and fundraisers. At the center of these scandalous tales is Harlan Ellis, a habitual gossiper who delights in spreading rumors with such dramatic effect it is hard to tell fact from fiction. Only the Dupree Sisters are curious enough to pursue Harlan to learn the truth behind the Corpse at the National Gallery. This really is the kind of whodunnit that I enjoy reading. It's not just about who did it but why. I'm very pleased with the reception to the book. Thank you to my international readers for making this such a successful launch.
On a different note, for the first time in my writing career I have gotten two new books out in one year. Unbelievably challenging to do. I have new found respect for writers who do this year in and year out. Alexander McCall Smith. Danielle Steel. Stephen King. My hat is off to all writers who can do this.
