SERIES POTENTIAL: We bought two books so we can expand this into a series centered around the complex character of Miss Aldridge, set in the glamor of the international nightclub scene of the late 1930s
"In Lena Aldridge, Hare has created a heroine who practically leaps off the page with her sharp wit and incandescence. Throw in a Jazz Age ocean crossing on the Queen Mary and series of diabolical murders that would make Agatha Christie proud, and I was done for, turning the pages late into the night. Irresistible and smart."
—Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Lions of Fifth Avenue
“Fiendishly plotted with more twists than a corkscrew, this nineteen thirties novel set on board the Queen Mary is a real page turner.”
—Rhys Bowen, New York Times Bestselling author of the Royal Spyness series
“Full of intrigue and tension, Miss Aldridge Regrets is an expertly plotted, beautifully set novel. With every character hiding something, Louise Hare builds the story in a way that is compelling and completely unputdownable.”
—Nekesa Afia, author of Dead Dead Girls
“With vividly drawn characters, this exciting blend of murder mystery and historical romance is hard to put down once one starts reading.”—Library Journal
