At twenty-five years old Anna, Lady Quartermain, becomes a grieving but wealthy widow. In an attempt to restart her life she sets up the Wellington Bureau, an investigation agency, without any serious expectation of it being a success.
A series of cases follow in which Anna unravels a number of mysteries, including those surrounding the fabulous Quartermain Stone – a diamond brought into the family by Henry Quartermain at the beginning of the thirteenth century, and which has a long and eventful history.
Anna also has to come to terms with the secrets and deceptions of the taciturn Brigadier Harris Butterworth, her dearest friend, whose involvement in covert operations brings danger into the lives of those she loves.

Every now and then I wonder whether I should unsubscribe from Google Alerts. It kinda feels presumptuous to be alerted to anything that contains your own name. Well, maybe not to some people, but it does to me.

But then, this morning, it brought me this link of a completely unsolicited review: http://justaddstory.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/review-shifting-reality-by-patty-jansen/

It's always cool to read a positive review, especially from someone who 'gets' your book - 'grats! :)

Good for you!  And it isn't presumptuous, it's business.   :D

Hey - great!  I find Google Alerts to be bit slow and unreliable though...so once in a while I do a Google Search with my name, web-address url etc. and discover amazing things that Google never alerted me to!
