How to Order a Signed Bookplate from Kate Khavari


  2. At checkout in the "order comments" box, simply write "bookplate." Please note that it may be up to several business weeks after the order deadline for you to receive your bookplate. Thank you for understanding!

*A bookplate is essentially a signed sticker that is separate from the book itself, meaning that the book is not directly signed.  Once you receive your bookplate, you are free to affix it to your book, or wherever you see fit to do so.*

About the Author
KATE KHAVARI is the author of fiction ranging from historical mysteries to high fantasy epics. She has her parents to thank for her fascination for historical mysteries, as she spent the majority of her childhood memorizing Sherlock Holmes’s and Poirot’s greatest quips. A former teacher, Kate has a deep appreciation for research and creativity, not to mention the multitasking ability she now relies on as an author and stay at home mother to her toddler son. She lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas with her husband, son, and a lovely garden that contains absolutely no poisonous plants.

KATHARINE SCHELLMAN is a former actor and one-time political consultant. These days, she writes the Lily Adler Mysteries (Crooked Lane Books) and the Nightingale Mysteries (Minotaur/St. Martin’s Press). LAST CALL AT THE NIGHTINGALE, her newest release, is a PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Summer Reads Pick for 2022 and a BOOKPAGE Most Anticipated Mystery & Suspense Book of 2022. Her debut novel, THE BODY IN THE GARDEN, was one of SUSPENSE MAGAZINE’s Best Books of 2020 and led to her being named one of BOOKPAGE’s 16 Women to Watch in 2020. Its sequel, SILENCE IN THE LIBRARY, was praised as “worthy of Agatha Christie or Rex Stout.” (LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review) Katharine lives and writes in the mountains of Virginia in the company of her husband, children, and the many houseplants she keeps accidentally murdering.

Newly minted research assistant Saffron Everleigh is determined to blaze a new trail at the University College London, but with her colleagues’ beliefs about women’s academic inabilities and not so subtle hints that her deceased father’s reputation paved her way into the botany department, she feels stymied at every turn.

When she attends a dinner party for the school, she expects to engage in conversations about the university's large expedition to the Amazon. What she doesn’t expect is for Mrs. Henry, one of the professors’ wives, to drop to the floor, poisoned by an unknown toxin. 

Dr. Maxwell, Saffron’s mentor, is the main suspect and evidence quickly mounts. Joined by fellow researcher--and potential romantic interest--Alexander Ashton, Saffron uses her knowledge of botany as she explores steamy greenhouses, dark gardens, and deadly poisons to clear Maxwell's name.
Will she be able to uncover the truth or will her investigation land her on the murderer’s list, in this entertaining examination of society’s expectations.
