Hi there,

Does anyone know how many titles there are in Robin Paige's Victorian Mystery series?  I count 10, but I want to make sure I have them all before I start the series.  Any input is appreciated. 

I count:

Death At Bishop's Keep

Death at Gallow's Green

Death at Daisy's Folly

Death at Devil's Bridge

Death at Rottingdean

Death at Whitchapel

Death at Epsom Downs

Death at Dartmoor

Death At Glamis Castle

Death in Hyde Park


I also have one Edwardian Mystery, Death at Blenheim Place, but it seems to have the same characters.  Is this a different series?  Or why the change from Victorian to Edwardian Mystery.   I want to read them all in order, so any help you all can offer is great and thank you!

Did you know that 'Robin Paige' is a pseudonym of Susan Wittig Albert (author of the China Bayles series) and her husband Bill Albert?

I read this today in the Burning Questions segment on www.bookpage.com

"Robin Paige no longer exists—at least, not as you might think. Paige is the penname for the husband and wife writing duo of Bill Albert and Susan Wittig Albert. Though Paige's 12-book Edwardian mystery series concluded last year with Death on the Lizard, you might be familiar with Susan's other work: the China Bayles herbal mysteries and the Beatrix Potter mysteries. Husband Bill has done writing of another kind—for computer programs—and, as a pair, they co-authored a couple of Hardy Boys books in the late 1980s.

"We probably won't go back to Robin Paige," Susan tells BQ. "It was great fun and we loved learning about the period, but life moves on."

If you're a Robin Paige fan, you'll likely be a Susan Wittig Albert fan as well. Spanish Dagger, the latest episode in the China Bayles series, was released in April. The fourth book in the Beatrix Potter series is The Tale of Hawthorn House, published in September."

Oh Crumbs.  I love this series.  Maybe someone will talk them into doing some more.  I absolutely love this series and it has to be in the top five of my favorites.  I also like the China Bayles series.

Julie, I know you will just love these books.  To me they are like "I just can't put it down, and where is the next one"?  Have you ever read any of Kathy Lynn Emersons' Lady Susanna Appleton books?  They take place in England further back in time and also have some really interesting history in them, too.  The books all begin with "Face Down in the............somthing or other"  I think the first one is "Face Down in the Marrow Bone Pie".  If it isn't the first it's the second.  She has just had published a new one recently, "Face Down O'er The Border".  Can't wait to get my little hands on that one!
