Main-Image-Downton-Abbey-Series-4Hi Friends,

Downton Abbey Season Four premieres on January 5th on PBS, and I can’t wait! I’m excited to see what will happen to all the characters, and I plan to follow them through this new season.

Season three had a rather shocking ending . . . but I’ll be cheering for Mary and eager to see how she overcomes her grief and moves forward as George’s mother and as the new partner in overseeing the estate. And what about Edith—will she finally find happiness? I’m hoping Anna and John Bates will enjoy married life and perhaps have a baby. And then there’s Mr. Carson, Mrs. Hughes, Daisy, Mrs. Patmore, Lord and Lady Grantham and my favorite, Violet – the Dowager Countess.

The Governess of Highland HallMy enjoyment of Downton Abbey inspired me to write the Edwardian Brides Series. Book one, The Governess of Highland Hall, released last fall, and I am hard at work on Book 2, The Daughter of Highland Hall which comes out this October. Book 3 is also in the works and will follow the Ramsey family of Highland Hall into WW1.

To celebrate Dowton Abbey’s new season and The Edwardian Brides Series we’re hosting a, “Win a Downton Abbey Finale Viewing Party” contest, where you can win treats and Downton Abbey-themed items for you and your friends. It will run through February 9, 2014. US residents only.

      Hi Bethany, you’re welcome. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you do get a hold of a copy of The Governess of Highland Hall. I like to tell people is like Downton Abbey meets Jane Eyre with a bit of the Sound of Music thrown in. : )

    I, too, have been keeping up with Downton Abbey, but I think I missed something. Why did O’Bryan leave? Did something happen to the actress who played that part? I don’t remember O’Bryan wanting to leave Downton Abbey.
    Anyway, all the goodies sound fantastic and I hope to read your books soon!

      Hi Anita, When the Crawleys went to Scotland in the last show last season, Lady Flincher (Rose’s mother) like the way O’Brien fixed her hair. The Flinchers went to India and they asked O’Brien to go along. I heard the actress wanted to leave the show, so they had to find a way to get rid of her. : )
      Thanks for stopping by!
