Katherine Bolger Hyde

by Kathleen Costa



Katherine Bolger Hyde has penned a very entertaining series that combines a clever mystery with classic literature. First published in July 2016 with Arsenic with Austen, we are introduced to Emily Cavanaugh who has inherited a fortune from her great aunt. It includes Windy Corners, a beautiful Victorian estate, and a considerable amount of real estate in the nearby town of Stony Beach, Oregon.

Emily Cavanaugh’s life was on hold. Ever since the death of her husband two years ago, Emily managed to teach her literature classes at Reed College, looking forward only to graduation and the day classes ended. She is rocked out of this stasis by the news of the death of her great-aunt Beatrice Runcible, who has left her an inheritance in Stoney Beach, Oregon. Although Emily had some of her fondest moments as a child reveling in Beatrice’s grand library, it has been decades since the two last spent time together.
