Eve Mallow’s going back to school! But when a famous former student is murdered on the grounds, Eve must discover who taught her a deadly lesson…
I’m delighted to say that the ninth book in the Eve Mallow series, Mystery at Southwood School is now available to pre-order on Amazon Kindle. If you’d prefer a paperback, you’ll be able to order that from the same page shortly before publication day on 10th November 2022.
Here’s the cover:
And here’s the reader description:
Eve Mallow is delighted when she and her best friend Viv are asked to cater Founders’ Day at Southwood School. It has a reputation as the best – and most secretive – school for miles around, and Viv has shared many dramatic stories about her time there. Eve can’t wait to see what it’s really like.
But when they arrive, Eve realises that the atmosphere is far from scholarly. Natalie Somerson, ex-pupil and infamous talk-show host, is the guest of honour, but nobody seems to want her there… especially when her speech stirs up old gossip. So why was she invited?
To make matters worse, Natalie won’t leave Eve’s boyfriend Robin alone… and when she’s found dead, he becomes the police’s prime suspect. Determined to prove his innocence, Eve starts to investigate everyone with a stake in the school. Is it the prudish principal, worried about Natalie’s influence? Her bitter former teacher, whose life Natalie made miserable? Or the head girl, who seemed to hate Natalie on sight?
With time running out to save Robin’s good name, Eve had better study her suspects and unmask the real killer… before they give her a fatal mark!
