Here are the first three Lord and Lady Hetheridge Books in one collection! In ICE BLUE, meet Lord Anthony Hetheridge, chief superintendent for New Scotland Yard. A bachelor approaching his sixtieth birthday, Baron Hetheridge has a neat, orderly personal life that his new subordinate, the impetuous and beautiful Kate Wakefield, turns upside down. And their first murder case together reveals not only a powerful attraction, but a secret from Hetheridge's own past. 

In book 2, BLUE MURDER, Hetheridge and his detectives, DS Kate Wakefield and DS Deepal "Paul" Bhar, seek the culprit of a deadly Halloween bash while Hetheridge, ever more enamored of Kate, is determined to put an heirloom engagement ring on her finger. 

In book three, SOMETHING BLUE, East Ender Kate is finally ready to marry her blue-blooded guv and become Lady Hetheridge at long last. But with Downing Street pressuring them to solve a case in the shortest time frame ever, and serial killer Sir Duncan Godington back in the mix, can the wedding actually go off without a hitch?

From the Author:

Ms. Jameson would like to thank all her readers for their loyalty, patience, and kind words. The two questions new readers always ask are, "Will there be more Hetheridge--'Blue'--books?" and "What else have you written?"

Regarding question one, will there be more Lord & Lady Hetheridge ("Blue") books, the answer is yes. When asked when she plans to end the series, she replied, "Never." She is already at work on book #5, Blue Blooded.

Regarding question two, what else has she written, please try the Dr. Benjamin Bones cozy mystery series. Set in wartime England beginning in September 1939, this nostalgic, romantic series follows the amateur sleuthing of Dr. Bones, a native Londoner, in his adopted Cornish village, Birdswing. Book #1, Marriage Can Be Murder, and book #2, Divorce Can Be Deadly, are available now. Also available is Dr. Bones and the Christmas Wish, a charming novella about love lost and love found.
