JustRead Tours Blog Tour: The London Forgery by Heidi Eljarbo

The London Forgery JustRead Blog Tour

Welcome to the Blog Tour for The London Forgery by Heidi Eljarbo, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!



The London Forgery

Title: The London Forgery
Series: A Fabiola Bennett Mystery #1
Author:
Heidi Eljarbo
Publisher:
Independently Published
Release Date: August 29, 2023
Genre:
Historical Cozy Mystery, Dual Timeline

1973. Art historian Fabiola Bennett sees herself as a prudently observant deer who becomes a daring and even mischievous lioness if the situation calls for it. And that’s exactly what’s required when greedy criminals steal, forge, and tamper with treasured artwork. When the crooks add murder to their list of crimes, the chaos is complete. 

A mysterious note is delivered anonymously at the door of the National Gallery in London, and the director immediately calls Fabiola’s office in Oslo and pleads with her to come without delay. The message is confusing, but it seems one of her favorite eighteenth-century portraits is in trouble. 

Fabiola hops on the first plane and meets up with her vibrant side-kick Pippa Yates and the ever-loyal Detective Inspector Cary Green from New Scotland Yard. But she is not na├»ve enough to think untangling the purpose and meaning of the mysterious note will be as simple as a walk in Hyde Park. These things never are.  

1750. Newly married Robert and Frances Andrews, members of the landed gentry of Suffolk, England, hire young and talented Thomas Gainsborough to paint their wedding portrait. Their desire is a lovely conversation piece showing their wealth and class, an artwork to remember them by for generations to come. 

Little do they know the gifted artist portrays their personalities exactly how he perceives them, and the artistic symbolism is not as flattering as they’d hoped for. Even the looming clouds in the distance promise a troublesome future.  

This is the first book in a new dual timeline series by Heidi Eljarbo—an intriguing spin-off from the much-loved Soli Hansen Mysteries. 

Fans of Lucinda Riley, Rhys Bowen, Kathleen McGurl, Kate Morton, and Katherine Neville will love this cozy historical art mystery, which takes the readers back to the nostalgia of the groovy seventies and the classical Georgian era of the eighteenth century.



Christian Historical Fiction is one of my favorite genres to read. I have also become a fan of Dual Timelines stories. The London Forgery by Heidi Eljarbo combines both of those. This is Book 1 in the Fabiola Bennett Mystery series. 

The Setting of the book is Norway with a Dual Timeline of the years of 1750 and 1973. Fabiola Bennett has followed in her mom's footsteps and is an Art Historian. Fabiola is always up to handle the situation when Artwork is being stolen or tampered with. She receives a call from the Director of the National Gallery in London when a mysterious note is left at their door. The Gallery needs her to come immediately as it seems one of her favorite eighteenth-century portraits might have been stolen or other trouble has arisen. She immediately gets on the plane and heads to the London Gallery and meets up with her side kick Pippa Yates and Detective Inspector Cary Green. She doesn't expect this case to be easy, but she is determined to solve the case. Head back to 1750 and Robert and Frances Andrews and newly married and they are excited about their Wedding Portrait by artist Thomas Gainsborough. They are troubled by the Portrait as the Artist has painted what he sees in their personalities and they spot trouble on the horizon for them. Will Fabiola and her crew solve the Mystery of the Artwork and the letter left at the door of the London Gallery? 

I truly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The Dual Timeline was so accurately researched and made the book very intriguing. I LOVE the characters in the book, especially Fabiola. She was determined to get to the bottom of the mystery and really does know her Artwork. I loved both times of the Dual Timeline and the way the Author consistently went back and forth between the 2 time periods. The Author does a WONDERFUL job at connecting the storylines to each other and the history learned from reading this book was great! The book is filled with Suspense, History, and Intrigue. I started reading and could not put the book down. I would also mention that Heidi Eljarbo is becoming my favorite Dual Timeline author! Her writing style for Dual Timelines really keeps the reader intrigued in the story!  I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Dual Timelines and Christian Historical Fiction. GREAT BOOK!

The Holidays are fast approaching and Children's Books are fun for kids during the Holidays. Zuggy the Rescue Pug – Happy Howl-idays by Jean Marie Alfieri is a Children's Book I recently read. 

Zuggy the Rescue Pug loves the Holidays and he especially enjoys costumes for Halloween. Thanksgiving Dinner is also a favorite. Christmas he wants to make sure there are presents for everyone. Zuggy the Rescue Pug is the star of the book and each holiday is fun for him, the activities in this book will be fun for Kids and Adults to enjoy together as a family. 

I really thought this book was well-developed and fun. The Book is filled with Coloring Pages, Fun Activities, Puzzles, Tic Tac Toe and so much more. The Illustrations in the book are outstanding and lovely! I really enjoyed seeing Zuggy the Rescue Pug be a part of the activities and games in this Book! I know Children will enjoy this, especially 3 through 10 year olds.  The book would make a great gift before the Holidays so it can be enjoyed during the Holiday Season! I HIGHLY recommend this for Kids and families to enjoy! 







When Jean’s eyes locked with those of a smooshy-faced little dog who sat inside a kennel at the Humane Society, it was love! He captured her heart. She captured their many adventures in short story poems starring Zuggy the Rescue Pug. An author, speaker, and advocate for the adoption of senior dogs, Jean and her husband currently live with their three fur-kids in Colorado. They joke that although the humans pay the mortgage, it’s really the dogs’ house! Jean finds much of her writing inspiration from her “vintage puppies” and work at the Pikes Peak Humane Society.

 

More from Jean

Pug-Lovers Magazine recently sat down with America’s favorite rescue pug to interview him on the new trio of Howl-iday stories and activity books that were released last month. Here’s what Zuggy had to say.

 

Q: This is book #11 in an award-winning collection. How do you continue to be your Mom / Jean’s most influential writing inspiration?

Zuggy: Oh, that’s easy. I just jump on her lap and wiggle around until I almost fall off and she tells me to settle down. Then I sit and stare deeply into her eyes and subliminally ask for a snack. She thinks I’m giving her story ideas, but it works for her, so I don’t ruin it.

 

Q: What is the best activity in these special edition books?

Zuggy: The puzzles and games and coloring pages where you can decorate me! The book club questions are also a great feature. (Mom said she got the idea from her own reading club – thanks, Auntie Karen!)

 

Q: What is your favorite holiday?

Zuggy: This pug is all about love and hugs, so Valentine’s Day is my fave. (I should have been named Very-Valentino, or Vee-vee for short! It’s so Ooo-la-la.)

 

Q: Do you ever get writer’s block?

Zuggy: Every day around breakfast and dinner time I simply can not focus. I scour the kitchen for lost and forgotten kibbles and wait impatiently for my chef (I mean, Momma Jean) to prepare my next meal. Who could write in such conditions?

 

Q: Which story from this collection is your favorite?

Zuggy: That’s ruff. ‘Costume Crazy’ is based on a true story and I really enjoyed all the belly-rubs between wardrobe changes. ‘The Great Turkey Chase’ starts out sad but is so exciting, and I score a drumstick in the end, so that’s a super story. And ‘Santa Paws’ is full of surprises. I love them all!

 

Q: Where can friends and fans get this new book?

Zuggy: The whole collection is available on Amazon and Jean will be signing copies on September 16, 2023, at the Humane Society’s Pawtoberfest, in Colorado Springs. Grab a beer and a book! And remember, she loves visiting schools (in person or remotely) so drop us an email to schedule a class visit: ZuggythePug@gmail.com
