Cover Reveal — A Lady’s Guide to Marvels And Misadventure

12 Jul

Today I’m excited to share the cover reveal for A Lady’s Guide to Marvels and Misadventure by Angela Bell, releasing from Bethany House Fiction on February 27, 2024! This historical romance novel, inspired by Around the World in 80 Days and The Nutcracker ballet, is available for pre-order today!

When Clara Marie Stanton’s ex-fiancé begins to spread rumors that her family suffers from hereditary insanity, it’s all Clara can do to protect them from his desperate schemes and society’s prejudice. Her family may be eccentric, yes, but they certainly aren’t insane. Then Clara’s Grandfather Drosselmeyer brings on an apprentice with a mechanical leg, and all pretense of normalcy takes wing.

Theodore Kingsley, a shame-chased vagabond skilled in repairing clocks, wants a fresh start far from Kingsley Court and the disappointed father who declared him dead. Upon returning to England, Theodore meets clockmaker Drosselmeyer, who hires him as an apprentice, much to Clara’s dismay. When Drosselmeyer spontaneously disappears in his secret flying owl machine, he leaves behind a note for Clara, beseeching her to make her dreams of adventure a reality by joining him on a merry scavenger hunt. Together, Clara and Theodore set off to follow Drosselmeyer’s trail of clues, but they will have to stay one step ahead of a villain who wants the flying machine for himself–at any cost.

 ECPA bestselling author Angela Bell is a 21st century lady with 19th century sensibilities. Her favorite pastimes include reading voraciously, drinking copious amounts of tea, and writing letters with a fountain pen. She resides in Texas with her charming pup Mr. Bingley Crosby. One might categorize her books as Historical Romance, but Angela likes to describe them as “A Cuppa Victorian Whimsy” because it sounds so much more poetical.
