For fans of Olivia Atwater, Tilly Wallace, and Charlie N. Holmberg!
In this short story, the fashionable and eccentric dowager Dame Hartwell has lured the reclusive Miss Tessa Preston to attend her drawing room séance. If Dame Hartwell can't convince Miss Preston, her former protégé, to return as her medium-in-residence, she doesn't know how she will protect her son and his new fiancé from the brewing storm of malcontent spirits surrounding them.
"Miss Preston's Predicament" is a short story between novels by Belinda Kroll. This story can be read as a standalone... but it includes characters and references events from her full-length historical fantasy novel, Haunting Miss Trentwood, the first book in the Hesitant Mediums series. Truly, we suggest you read Haunting Miss Trentwood first, but understand you must do what you must.
Read this story for a fun, light read featuring historical (gaslamp) fantasy, Victorian comedy of manners, and plucky feminine ghost hunter a la Pride & Prejudice and Zombies.
