One Final Bonus – Kerry Greenwood Quote 

“Come to the jacaranda tree at seven o’clock and you will hear something to your advantage. Destroy this note.’
No signature, no clue to the identity. Just what sort of heroine do you think I am? Phryne asked the air. Only a Gothic novel protagonist would receive that and say, ‘Goodness, let me just slip into a low-cut white nightie and put on the highest heeled shoes I can find,’ and, pausing only to burn the note, slip out of the hotel by a back exit and go forth to meet her doom in the den of the monster – to be rescued in the nick of time by the strong-jawed hero (he of the Byronic profile and the muscles rippling beneath the torn shirt). ‘Oh, my dear,’ Phryne spoke aloud as if to the letter-writer. ‘You don’t know a lot about me, do you?”

― Kerry Greenwood, Death Before Wicket
