Sneak Peek

To keep you going until the new website is up and running, I thought you might like a sneak peek at the cover for the next Gertrude Harrington Mystery, MAID FOR MURDER, which will be out next year.

The new style of covers will eventually be rolled out to all the existing Gertrude Harrington Mysteries, and will continue with future books as well. I hope you like it.

sneak peak Maid for Murder for old website

New website & book covers coming soon

Later this year I will be relaunching my website with a new improved look, and to accompany this, my books will be getting some lovely new covers, starting with the Death on Swift Wings, the first Gertrude Harrington Mystery.

Much as I love the current covers, I have had comments stating that they don’t really invoke the ‘Cosy Crime’ genre. I have spent a great deal of time and effort on the new covers with invaluable help and advice from my husband, and hope you like them.

Stay tuned…

03 A Small Dose of De'ath

A SMALL DOSE OF DE’ATH
The 3rd Gertrude Harrington Mystery

1938
‘I’ve killed her. She’s dead.’

These words are enough to convict Joanna Brookes of
murdering Estelle Crowthorne, a local schoolteacher.
But has the wrong person gone to the gallows?
And if so, who really killed Estelle?

1955
The world-renowned opera diva Dame Margot De’Ath has returned to County Kingworthy, reigniting long supressed emotions. But when she is found dead in the grounds of Cranleigh Grange, the derelict mansion she has purchased, forgotten secrets are awakened amongst a gathering group of people from her past.

Which of them killed Dame Margot, and why?

When further murder attempts are made, Gertrude Harrington and her old friend, Chief Inspector Lennox, are drawn into the investigation, and it becomes clear that someone links Dame Margot to not only the murder of 1938, but also to another death much closer to home.
