Congratulations to Sophie Irwin, whose debut novel A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting is publishing in UK hardback today (HarperCollins / HarperFiction).

Bridgerton meets Georgette Heyer, A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting follows the unapologetic yet charming Kitty Talbot, who must journey to London to save her family from financial destitution after being jilted by her wealthy fiancé.

In the run-up to publication, A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting was The Bookseller‘s Book of the Month (May 2022), one of Apple Books’ Best Books (May 2022), and was featured in The Times, The Sunday Express, The Sunday Times, Publisher’s Weekly, Booklist, and Kirkus Reviews.

Rights to A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting have been sold into 28 territories, and readers across the pond don’t have long to wait, as it will launch in the US in July 2022 (Penguin Random House / Pam Dorman Books).
