Top 5 Reasons I Love Katherine Irvine
Katherine is the heroine of the Regency Matchmaker Mysteries, the new series I’m putting together with USA Today Bestseller Leighann Dobbs. Book 1, An Invitation to Murder, is now available for preorder, and I have to say, I can’t get enough of the main character.
Here are the top 5 reasons I love her:
- Her foul mouth.
“Sard it all,” Katherine swore.
Harriet’s expression turned every bit as dark as her hair. “You’re learning too much foul language from your Bow Street Runner friend.”
- Her soft spot for the shy and socially awkward.
“Do you think there’s any hope at all?” She glanced down, twisting her skirt in her hands.
Much the way Katherine’s heart twisted at the sight of her despair. Tarnation! She wasn’t supposed to care about the outcome of this matchmaking job. When faced with Annie’s innocent hopes, she couldn’t help but want her to succeed. How was she supposed to marry a penniless insect-lover to an earl?
- Her determination to do everything herself (even if that is sometimes her failing)
Wayland leaned closer, lowering his head to murmur in her ear. “Explain to me what you’re looking for and I can help you search, likely far less conspicuously.”
Katherine balled her fists and took a step away. “I will never join forces with you,” she vowed, her voice little more than a whisper.
- The way she doesn’t care what people think of her
Perhaps she shouldn’t have worn the apple-green gown. With her figure, it made her resemble a pear. In fact, she’d hoped to use that fact to dissuade the gentlemen present from considering her a potential match.
- The way she’s proud of her pear-shaped figure
“Whatever it is, it’s my business, not yours.” She swung the door closed with her hips. One benefit to having a wide figure. She smirked.
Don’t miss the debut of this funny mystery series, set in 1816 England! It’s going to be fantastic. :)
