HaBO: Goodbye, Earl

May 12, 2020

This HaBO comes from Norma, who is search for this historical romance:

I’m looking for a book I read a couple (few?) of years ago. It was about three sisters, one of which was abused by her husband. Somehow or another, the heroine’s husband ends up drinking poison which was in his drink – whiskey, I think (and yes he’s titled – he’s an earl or a duke or something like that) and for some reason the heroine thinks she did it.

The heroine’s two sisters show up and find out about the dead husband and they all agree they need to get rid of the body and decide to roll it up in rug. They end up accidentally dropping the dead husband out of a second story window at some point. It was really funny.

The hero turns up at the house along with a couple of other guys but I can’t remember if the hero is a family friend or what – I think he might end up helping with the body, too.

In the end it turned out the butler poisoned the husband and it may have been because he was tired of seeing the heroine abused.

Any help you could give me would be great. I’ve been racking my brain and searching the Internet like a mad woman. I can’t figure out why I didn’t read every book written by that particular author at the time. I remember the book being pretty great.

I’m getting major The Countess by Lynsay Sands vibes, but I’m not sure all the details line up.
