Dr. Alexandra Gladstone Series Blog Tour

This is my first time participating in a blog tour so I will ask for your patience please.
I am excited to tell you about the Dr. Alexandra Gladstone series by Paula Paul. This series is a historical mystery series set in Victorian England.
Let me start by telling you about the books in this series. I have included links for you to purchase the books as well.
The first book in the series is Symptoms of Death. (Gladstone) Symptoms of Death from Amazon

 You can’t cure murder …

When the old country doctor of Newton-Upon-Sea passed away, he left his only daughter, Alexandra, with the secrets of his trade. Now, the village depends on its lady-doctor Gladstone for its births, deaths, and all inconveniences in between.

Dr. Alexander Gladstone is visiting the Lord of Dunsford, when he’s found murdered in his bed. Joined by Nancy, her maid, the London barrister, Nicholas Forsythe, and her faithful dog, Zack, she soon discovers that other nobles in Lord Dunsford’s circle of acquaintances have very good reasons to see him dead. The symptoms of death begin to multiply as they uncover a dangerous plot of revenge, hatred, and blackmail. And unfortunately for Alexandra, this rage could get her killed …
Second in the series is An Improper Death (Gladstone) An Improper Death from Amazon

Always Dress Well for Murder

The small town of Newton-Upon-Sea is stunned by the death of a retired admiral of her Majesty’s Navy, and even more shocked at the state in which he is found. Everyone is ready to assume that he took a drunken fall from a cliff, except for Dr. Alexandra Gladstone. Along with Nancy, her maid, the London barrister, Nicholas Forsythe, and her faithful dog, Zack, she will battle local authorities, morticians, and the gossip of the town in order to learn the truth. And when she does, she just might find that the truth is worse than she could ever have imagined…
After that we have Half a Mind to Murder (Gladstone) Half a Mind to Murder from Amazon

Always Dress Well For Murder…

Murder is in the air in the small town of Newton-Upon-Sea. A mysterious illness is claiming the lives of men of a certain age, and where the illness fails, a sharp knife does not. Dr. Alexandra Gladstone is at a loss to determine what is causing the sickness, and the only survivor of the illness is soon found with his heart surgically removed. The panic-stricken townsfolk do not know who to trust, and Constable Snow is at a loss to find the killer, or protect innocents from the frightened, unruly mob. 

Dr. Gladstone is sent to London by Snow to discover some answers that might help them catch the madman who is committing the murders. When she realizes the truth, she knows that she may already be too late to save those that she loves the most…
And I am happy to announce that there will be a fourth book in this fantastic series. The Queen’s Crime will be released in 2013. Below is a link to the first chapter to give you that sneak peek.

Now let me tell you a little bit about the author Paula Paul. Paula Paul has published 25 novels for both children and adults.  Her popular historical mystery series featuring Dr. Alexandra Gladstone is being re-released in both print and electronic format by Cool Well Press.  New books in the series will be forthcoming, beginning with The Queen’s Crime, scheduled for release in January 2013.
                Paula has written contemporary mysteries as well as historical and contemporary romance novels and literary novels.  Her favorites are her historical and literary novels.  She has won awards from Women Writing the West, New Mexico Book Association, the Zia Award, National Press Women Award for Fiction, Texas Institute of Letters Award, and a Texas Bluebonnet Award.
                Growing up in Texas on a cotton farm and ranch that was 30 miles from the nearest town, she had plenty of time to develop a very severe reading addiction that eventually translated into crafting her own stories and books.
                A former journalist, she is the recipient of several state and national awards for reporting and feature writing.  She lives in Albuquerque, NM, with her husband.  She has two grown children and six grandchildren who keep her life full and interesting.  She also has an adorable if annoying Schnoodle (Poodle and Schnauzer mix) who makes certain she takes a break from writing and gets her three-mile walk everyday.

For an added bonus Paula is hosting an e-book giveaway of her books on her blog. Here is the link to her blog Paula's Blog
