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.

ARC team reviews

Hi, everyone.

I just wanted to thank those of you who have your reviews in already, both on Goodreads and your local Amazon. I have left the link above for the Goodreads books. I’ve also put the reviews so far on my Facebook ARC group page. This is the link for that:

So far, the response has been great, all 5* and I couldn’t wish for anything better. I hope you’re all enjoying the first book in the series. I’m working hard on the second which will be published in March and I will give you your copies of that two weeks before release date. Be prepared for a great story in book two!

Thank you once again for joining my team and if it’s possible to get your first reviews in by the end of February that would be greatly appreciated. I expect this six-book series will be released approximately at the rate of one book per month. If you need longer to read then please message me, or if you read quickly and would like more books, I’m always happy to release books from my other collections to regular ARC readers who review in good time. Please remember, the copies are only for you, if you have friends who would like to join and would leave their own reviews, they can get in touch too.

That’s enough from me this week! Happy Valentine’s Day to you all and I hope you get thoroughly spoilt! Stay safe and well. Until next time!

I’d like to build an ARC team…

I’ve been writing books for four years now in several categories and in particular, I’m concentrating on British cozy mysteries. To date, I have four published books out in my Bromington series, a newly released book in my Florence Fox series, one published in my Honeystone Sisters series (which is a cozy/cum mystery) plus something a little darker in my Anna Hamilton missing person series.

I’ve also released children’s books, middle-grade and crime thrillers. I run a group for Indie authors, and moderate and admin in another two. I also ARC read for three cozy writers (possibly four now) and, like most writers, I need more exposure for my books. I keep my reads to around 200 pages to keep the costs down to 99p a book, also, all are with KU. I’m proud to have most of my reviews in the 4-5* region and I have some lovely readers.

For now, I will be offering a PDF version of my books, over the coming months, I want to find out how to get them onto Bookhip and similar. Ideally, I’d like to set up a friendly ARC group and readers who could let me know if they spot anything amiss, have any suggestions if needed and who would have the review ready on publishing day for Amazon, Goodreads, and Bookbub in the US etc. I understand not everyone can leave reviews on Amazon, in which case, I’d be happy for you to leave where you can and perhaps share the book link and encourage readers who you think might like to read my books.

There is an option to follow me here on my website, this way you would get an email of when new books are being released via my posts. You can also follow me on Amazon for the same thing. I will send out PDF’s via FB messenger. I’m quite happy to backtrack too. If you would like a free PDF of any of my books already out, then I can send them to you one by one as you leave a review.

Many thanks for reading this far. This link here is to everything, why not take a look on your local Amazon and see the books available. Please get in touch if this is for you.

Take care,

Trisha. Xx
