I live in the UK, close to London. And when I’m not writing I’m running around for my family, running with my border collie and doodling in my sketchbook. I once worked as a Victorian maid. And I just missed out on Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy’s dance at the Netherfield Ball. I don’t have a favourite historical period: I find them all equally fascinating. I love mysteries because I love problem-solving. I enjoy finding an Agatha Christie story I haven’t read yet and trying to work out who the culprit is before the end. Writing historical mysteries combines my love of history and mystery and also another love: writing. I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
A bicycle brake cable cutting killer is on the loose.
When Mrs Mildred Cobnut of Compton Poppleford Ladies Bicycling Club suffers a fatal accident, hapless Inspector Mappin begins a murder investigation. As luck would have it, world-renowned Swiss detective, Monsieur Pascal Legrand, is staying in the village; with such sleuthing expertise on hand, the case will surely be swiftly solved.
Meanwhile, Churchill and Pemberley have another case to worry about: Ramsay the missing goat. But with Churchill having crossed swords with Mrs Cobnut, the elderly detectives soon become embroiled in the murder investigation.
Who is the mystery man who calls on Mrs Twig? What causes Farmer Glossop’s horse to bolt down the high street? Will Churchill ever finish a slice of Pemberley’s prune cake? There are many questions for the detective duo to answer before they can hope to beat the famous Monsieur Legrand at his own game.
