Author Maggi Andersenabout this book: The Folly at Falconbridge Hall has been nominated for the RONE Award! It took me close to a year to write my historical mystery romance. As the book is set in the Victorian era with a feminist heroine and a lepidopterist hero, who plans a trip to the Amazon jungle in search of butterflies, I needed to research several areas of life in the 1900s. I learned a fair bit about feminism, Victorian explorers, and servants in big houses by the time I finished. I didn't pick the cover, but I love it.

Miss Vanessa Ashley, after being orphaned, takes the position as a governess to the enigmatic Lord Falconbridge's troubled daughter, Blythe. I pictured Vanessa to be much like the girl on the cover. A mystery lies at the heart of Falconbridge Hall, which centers on the folly in the grounds. My love of the Gothic novels of Victoria Holt and Daphne Du Maurier may have influenced the work in some way. Most of my romance novels feature a mystery subplot of some kind.

• "The author deserves high praise for her ability to capture the reader's attention and engage one in both the mystery and the romance of this delightful story!" — Margaret Faria, InD'Tale Magazine
