Meeting the authors

As an author, I realise the importance of belonging in a circle of like-minded authors and supporters, who are not only excellent writers but are very supportive of others. Some staples in my life are Eva Pasco, Jesse Frankel, Jenny Jeffrey, Gene Stiles, David Padilla, Jamie Rutland Gillespie, DA Kelly and Victoria LK Williams. Not only do they regularly share my books posts, and I theirs, they support me regularly in all sorts of ways. I may come onto Facebook to find I suddenly have a brand new, lovely cover or Ad picture, a recent surprise from DA Kelly. A great book feature by Jamie Rutland Gillespie. Today, I found I was featured in Victoria’s latest newsletter, see below:…

Of course, there are so many more people who support me, writers, readers, family, and I appreciate every share, every review. My ARC readers are terrific; a brilliant new team and so valuable. A special mention to Nadine Peterse-Vrijhof, who supports so many authors in a multitude of ways. Thank you. I’d like to share a few book links now and pay it forward. I won’t tell you who writes what, click and see – I can guarantee some great reads for you among their collections.

The Secrets of Owl Cottage

Well, here we are! My brand new cozy mystery is out a little early and I think I’ve just had two early 5* reviews in which are among my best yet. Wow! It makes it all worthwhile. I’ll just pop them here for you…

Evil is at the heart of this mystery, both in the crime and the treatment of the new character, Primrose.
The author jumps right in with the easy flow of how the characters interact with each other. It is playful, showing the developing friendships, leaving you unsuspecting as to the awful undercurrents that are hidden by a straightforward murder mystery.
Floxy and friends, both 2 and 4 legged, work together to solve the crime and help a new friend. The personality of each major character is developing, each with their own voice. And there is a romance starting!
The mind games that are played on Primrose infuriate Floxy and Willow, and they are determined to not only clear her name but help her move forward.
The clues are cleverly planted and the ending a total surprise. But it doesn’t stop there. Trisha Kelly, the author, expertly sets the reader up for the next book in the series without the use of an extreme cliffhanger. Well done, highly recommend!

I loved this case!

An intriguing case, complicated, with many sides to it. The case was one of the best I’ve ever read. I found the psychological aspect of the case very interesting. This author has her own unique writing style, very British. And very much relying on the great cast of characters. Very diverse. Some kind, some bossy, some quirky, and I love them all! But, Albus the sweet Chocolate Labrador is my favorite, although he has to share first place with brawny Phantom, who is not very tactful but his heart is very much in the right place. And don’t forget cute little kitten Lila, and the way Albus interacts with her; that’s very sweet and heartwarming! And oh yeah, there is a ghost who leaves clues, he doesn’t play a big role, but it is an important one! So, the characters continued to impress me, as did the storyline.

Weren’t they great? I’m a British multi-genre and mystery writer and I like to write something you can get your teeth into! Of course, this is the second book in the brand-new series and the first book, Clue of the Ghostly Trail needs to be read first so you can see where I’m going with the series. This is the link for book one. I’m a quick writer and expect the third book, The Scintillating Summer, will be released some time during April 2021.

Thank you for reading this far. All my books are on Amazon for just 99p (UK) or free with KU. Happy reading and thank you for following me here on my website to be the first to hear of new releases. I never send junk mail!

Have a great weekend,

The Secrets of Owl Cottage: Release date 16th, March 2021

The Secrets o Owl Cottage

Coming next week, the second book in the new Florence Fox Mystery series. The Secrets of Owl Cottage is the second book in the series. The first, Clue of the Ghostly Trail is available on Amazon as both a paperback and Kindle. Here’s a little snippet from book one:

He was hoping the snow would not settle last night, as he snuck through the back gardens; he’d watched the trio lock the book shop and leave. Judging by the number of bags they’d taken; the coast was now clear. She wasn’t coming back. Not long to go now, but he would bide his time, he could only strike once, and the best opportunity had yet to arise. For the curse to be believed, it must be during the twelve days. The newcomer and her dog had had a lucky escape. If anyone got in his way, they would die. Had died.

A little snippet from book two: The Secrets of Owl Cottage.

The sound of sirens interrupted their conversation, and they drew closer.

“What’s going on?” Cora hurried back up the garden and Frankie followed close behind. He was annoyed he hadn’t had a chance to look inside the shelter but if there was an emergency going on, their reporting skills had to come first.

The side gate burst open and Sergeant Beam rushed into the garden. “Everyone stay where you are. No, no, on second thoughts, can you all assemble inside the cottage please, make way now.”

“What on earth is happening?” Primrose asked. “Is there a fire?”

“Not a fire, Miss, no. Please make your way inside with two of our officers. All of you, come on now, hurry along.”

The Secrets of Owl Cottage – Out on the 16th, March.

Florence Fox has recently settled down in a quaint, English village. Goldhenge is a place not to be taken at face value. Underneath the picturesque, cobbled streets and Victorian shopfronts, lies an area brimming with interesting characters. Many of whom are not what they seem.

Floxy, as she’s known to her friends, takes two of her young team out to Owl Cottage. The journalists are continuing their magazine feature on the beautiful gardens surrounding Primrose Templar’s home.

That is, until the plan ends, abruptly. The police arrive unexpectedly after receiving an anonymous tip-off. Albus, the clever Chocolate Labrador, willingly helps them find a bit more than any of them bargained for. A concealed body.

Florence and her unorthodox team join forces as bewildered Primrose is taken away in a police van. The terrified young woman is arrested for murder, and the evidence against her is damning.
