Book 11 is done!

Book 11 is now completed and with my agent and my editor. No fixed title as yet. The working title was murder at the Charity Ball but that may change. Time for an admin break to catch my breath and research for book 12. Murder at the Pageant - again a working title.

Thank you all so much! Murder at the Dolphin Hotel is on a free offer for ebook at the moment and went to number 1 in the US, UK, Canada and Australia yesterday. Number 1 in the kindle free charts out of all the millions of books on those charts. Just mind blowing. I do hope that people enjoy it and will go on to explore the series further!!

Guest post from Verity Bright

My lovely writerly chums, Verity Bright have a new release out today!
You can get your copy HERE The society wedding of the decade has everything: the blushing bride, beautiful flowers… and the groom arrested before he can walk down the aisle? Thank goodness Lady Swift is on the guest list! Lady Eleanor Swift isn’t normally one for grand social occasions, but who can resist a wedding? Especially when it’s her old friend, Constance Grainger, marrying the most eligible bachelor in town, Lord Peregrine Davencourt. Eleanor is taking Gladstone the bulldog as her plus one, with a smart new bowtie to match her bridesmaid’s dress. But the big day is ruined when the groom is arrested for murder before he makes it to the altar. In a baffling twist, it turns out he was already engaged to the lovely Daisy Balforth, who has been found dead at the local inn with Lord Davencourt kneeling over her. The gossip pages will have a field day! The distraught bride-to-be asks Eleanor to clear her fiancĂ©’s name, as she’s certain he wouldn’t hurt a fly. With help from handsome Detective Seldon, Eleanor examines the evidence. But she’s barely had time to write down her suspect list before Constance’s father is set upon by a bearded stranger on the golf course. Clearly there is more to this story than Eleanor first thought, but can she catch the real killer before the wedding turns into her wake? How can you resist?
