About Murder in Postscript
Widowed countess Amelia Amesbury can’t wait for the afternoon post. Readers write to Lady Agony, her secret pseudonym, asking for advice on love, life, and friendship. Although Amelia’s used to fascinating tales, she’s stunned when one letter writer divulges witnessing a murder.
