More About the Author

Now that my children are grown, I live in Texas with my dog Sophy. Having a son on the east coast and a daughter on the west coast gives me a good excuse to travel.

I love writing about men and women who try to live their lives with honor and courage and concern for those around them. I've had challenges in my own life and yet I still believe in happy endings and the ability of each of us to rise above the past and find or make some kind of good come out of every challenge.

I hope my books inspire readers to see the possibilities in their own lives.

"Miss Tibbles Interferes" is definitely a novel for fans -- fans of April Kihlstrom's Miss Tibbles series that is. Because while the novel is billed as a Regency romance with a murder-mystery attached to it, the romance and the mystery subplots are more or less a backdrop to a novel that is actually all about Miss Tibbles's (or rather Mrs. Merriweather) capable and managing ways. I'm a Miss Tibbles fan, so that "Miss Tibbles Interferes" was a rather agreeable read for me. However, if you're looking for the traditional Regency romance novel, you might want to try some other novel, as this particular one may indeed disappoint.
When Colonel Merriweather receives a letter from an old school friend (Mr. Hawthorne) asking him to come to London because he needs his help and advice, the Colonel and his wife (the former Miss Tibbles) set off for London with all speed. Hawthorne happens to be a curator of sorts of the British Museum, and he is currently cataloguing the artifacts that Wellington brought back from the Peninsula. However upon making contact with Hawthorne, the Colonel discovers to his bewilderment that for some reason or the other, Hawthorne is hesitant to confide in him completely, claiming that he has to do some serious thinking before he can decide what he can divulge and what he should keep to himself. He promises to be more forthcoming and asks for a couple of days to think things over. Unfortunately Hawthorne is murdered soon after this. And now the Colonel decides that that it is up to him to uncover what is going on at the museum and to discover who murdered his friend. Could it have been the work of some art theft ring? Or someone closer to home?

Miss Tibbles is a secondary but not minor character in April Kihlstrom's newest Regency mystery romance.
Ariel Hawthorne has just lost her father to murder and knows she will eventually lose the museum job that she loves, since it is not suitable work for a young woman. She will not have much time or opportunity to solve her father's murder. Captain William Stanfield, recently returned from the Peninsular Wars, had just begun assisting her father with his work and is also interested in finding out what is going on - but it is not clear who he is working for.
Luckily for Ariel, her father had invited old friend Colonel Merriweather to come help with his cataloging at the British Museum, and he brought along his wife the former Miss Tibbles, who has a deductive talent rivaling that of Sherlock Holmes. Mrs. Merriweather takes Ariel in hand and soon the women are ferreting out secrets just as handily as the military gentlemen. The action moves from dusty museum halls to Regency drawing rooms and back again, culminating in a grand finale of various parties processing into the British Museum rather like an Abbot & Costello movie.
If you like your romances light, full of action and humor, you will like Miss Tibbles Interferes. I give it three stars for having more comedy than romance.

The sad thing is I remember this book because it annoyed me so much, ordinarily I would breeze thru a romance novel and forget about it. I picked this up because I liked the title--bad mistake on my part.

Miss Tibbles is apparently Kihlstrom's favorite character (in the world) and so she interjects her into this book, into the title (it should have been a clue). I assumed she was either the female love interest or some nosey old biddy. Nope.

Nosey yes, but not particularly old. Newly married with a daughter she doesn't really know what to do with and a husband who humours her. She is supposed to bementally superior to many around her, and she acts like just that, superior. I didn't find one endearing characteristic about that woman.

Besides the romance in this book was almost nothing. The heroine (the one that isn't Miss Tibbles) is a supposedly mousy, spectacle wearing orphan. But low-and-behold, she isn't really, it was all a disguise to help her be an academic, she really is STUNNING.

The hero is almost interesting, if Miss Tibbles would let him do his job, but he keeps forgetting about his injury and when to use and not use his cane (trust me on this, it gets ridiculous).

I think perhaps Kihlstrom should switch genres to Mystery, so she can do what she really seems to want to do--write a really huge mystery series with Miss Tibbles.
