Hallo, Hallo dear hearts!
I have a special treat for you, today! Remember how I was keenly excited about hosting a conversation with Ms Lortz for her lovely blog tour celebrating her third release within her Romantic Suspenseful Regencies? I have the honour of announcing this evening – our conversation can finally be shared!
I was overjoyed she was receptive to answering my questions (especially as they were delayed a bit of a spell from my original deadline) – you’ll find she is not just receptive to my enquiries but she has kindly expounded upon what we can expect to find in the future for this series which has knitted itself into her writerly heart!
Other points explored are sorting out who exactly is *Jacob Pevensey* and why is he the one lead detective your most likely to overlook and dismiss until you reach his chapters within ‘A Duel for Christmas’!?
One thing is for certain – if you are as hugged inside the Regency as much as Jorie – this is one critically accurate series you will not want to miss the chance in becoming familiar with as Ms Lortz takes readerly affection & writerly passion to a heightened layer of exposition as she knits each new installment of a series which has become a cherished one of my own now!
Let’s take an Autumnal respite back into the Regency – of the lifestyles of the ton and where courtship, honour & duty were still crucial components of ordinary life! Be sure to brew your favourite cuppa and settle into for a lovely conversation between the book blogger smitten with the series & the writer who is wickedly delighted to answer the questions stemming out of a series you can tell she is over the moon delighted to be creating!

How many mysteries do you think you’ll write within the Jacob Pevensey Mysteries and how did you decide upon the name?
Lortz responds: My first Pevensey Mystery is To Wed an Heiress, which takes events from the Norman Conquest and transposes them to the Regency Era. In 1066, William the Conqueror landed on the beach of Pevensey in the south of England. I needed a name for my detective, and this place name jumped out at me. It probably also subconsciously reminded me of the Pevensies from C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia, which have always been favorite stories to read. I don’t think I was originally planning to write a series, but after the first book, Jacob Pevensey took on a life of his own and became the understated star of my next two novels.
I have a novella in the works to follow A Duel for Christmas and then plans for at least one more full-legnth Pevensey novel. But it’s entirely possible Pevensey may demand more of my time after those are finished–one never knows. Read More
