In these dark January days, I’m delighted to say that the first in my new series, Mystery on Hidden Lane, will take you to a picturesque Suffolk village in June, for some armchair sleuthing!
The book features obituary writer Eve Mallow and her beloved dachshund Gus. You can download it here for just 99p/c, or opt for the paperback or Audible versions.
Here’s the blurb:
Meet Eve Mallow: an American far from home, a professional busybody… and an amateur detective?
Seasoned obituary writer Eve Mallow has a new assignment: to tell the life story of famed musician Bernard Fitzpatrick. A chance to spend a few days in the sweet little village of Saxford St Peter, walking the country lanes with her beloved dachshund Gus and meeting new people sounds like a dream. But it turns out that Bernard’s life was much less interesting than his death. On the day she arrives, news breaks that the charismatic cellist was the victim of a grisly murder. Could this quaint English village be hiding a dark secret?
As Eve starts to interview Bernard’s friends and colleagues, she finds that he’d ruffled a few feathers. In fact, from the keepers of the Cross Keys Inn to his own staff at High House, there’s barely a person in town who doesn’t have some reason to hate him… is one of the friendly villagers a cold-blooded killer?
Eve hoped Saxford St Peter would be the perfect escape from her busy city life. But there is darkness even in the most sunlit of settings. And when a second body is found, Eve becomes certain that one of the people she’s met must be the murderer. She has never done any detective work before… but is there something in her notes that can crack the case?
Meanwhile, book two in the series, Mystery at Apple Tree Cottage, publishes on 12th March and is already available to pre-order.
I do hope you enjoy meeting Eve if you download one of the books!
