Cover Reveal – ‘No Accident’ by Robert Crouch

This is the brand new cover for ‘No Accident’, the first book in the Kent Fisher series which is being re-released this month.  Isn’t it just fab!  I will be taking part in the blog tour so you’ll find out what I think about ‘No Accident’ then.  In the meantime here’s what its about.

 

Book Blurb

Nothing happens by accident, according to Kent Fisher, an environmental health officer with more baggage than an airport carousel. When he ignores a restraining order to investigate the death of Syd Collins in a work accident at Tombstone Adventure Park, he clashes with the owner, playboy millionaire, Miles Birchill, who has his own reasons to block the investigation.

Determined to uncover the truth, Kent casts aside procedure and defies suspension when he becomes convinced that Collins’ death is no accident.

But as Kent rushes to identify the killer and prevent more deaths, he faces even more unpleasant surprises when his professional and private worlds collide with devastating consequences.

Set in and around the beautiful South Downs of East Sussex, No Accident is the first novel in a new series that brings a fresh and irreverent twist to the traditional whodunit.

 

About Robert Crouch

Inspired by Miss Marple, Inspector Morse and Columbo, Robert Crouch wanted to write entertaining crime fiction the whole family could enjoy.

At their heart is Kent Fisher, an environmental health officer with more baggage than an airport carousel. Passionate about the environment, justice and fair play, he’s soon embroiled in murder.

Drawing on his experiences as an environmental health officer, Robert has created a new kind of detective who brings a unique and fresh twist to the traditional murder mystery. With complex plots, topical issues and a liberal dash of irreverent humour, the Kent Fisher mysteries offer an alternative to the standard police procedural.

Robert now writes full time and lives on the South Coast of England with his wife and their West Highland White Terrier, Harvey, who appears in the novels as Kent’s sidekick, Columbo.

Blog Tour – ‘Journey to Death’ by Leigh Russell

Blog Tour Banner

I am delighted to be taking part in this blog tour today.  I have read a couple of Leigh Russell’s books, both of which I thoroughly enjoyed.  Below is an exclusive prequel from Leigh.

~~~~~

Lucy and her father were sitting at the kitchen table in her parents’ house.

‘Lucy?’

‘Shall I make some tea?’

‘No, sit down again. I want to talk to you. You know your mother and I are going on holiday?’

‘Yes, of course.’ Lucy smiled at him. ‘And you’re going to have a lovely time.’

‘The fact is, your mother’s worried about going away and leaving you here on your own.’

Lucy sighed. ‘I’ll be fine. You can’t possibly cancel your trip. You’ve both been looking forward to it for so long and anyway, it must be costing you a fortune. Don’t worry about leaving me here. Just because I’m on my own now, doesn’t mean you have to change your plans. You go ahead, and have a lovely time. I’ll be fine, really.’

Her father shook his head. ‘No, you don’t understand. We’re planning to go, but we want you to come with us.’

‘What?’

‘We want you to come to the Seychelles with us.’

‘Are you serious?’

‘Yes. Absolutely.’

‘Wow! That’s generous of you.’ Lucy hesitated. ‘But I’m just not in the mood for a holiday right now. I’d only spoil it for you. You don’t want me to come.’

Her father fidgeted with a salt grinder that was on the table and brushed a few grains onto the floor, before raising a troubled face to her.

‘The fact is, your mother refuses to go without you. She thinks the change of scene will do you good, and I completely agree with her.’

Lucy was not sure what to say.

‘Anyway,’ he went on, ‘she says she won’t go without you, so I hope you’ll agree to come with us.’

Lucy nodded her head. ‘Seems I don’t have much choice in the matter, then,’ she said, and gave an anxious smile.

Her father smiled back. ‘That’s agreed then.’ He stood up, and went to tell his wife.

Watching him leave, Lucy already regretted having agreed to go on holiday with her parents. She was annoyed with them for putting pressure on her to accompany them, and with herself for giving in. But, at the same time, she could not help feeling excited about her trip to the Seychelles.

Cover Reveal – ‘Wickham Hall: Part 1’ by Cathy Bramley

Wickham Hall Part 1 Hidden Treasures

This is the gorgeous cover of the first part of ‘Wickham Hall – Hidden Treasures’ by Cathy Bramley.  Read on to find out more.

 ~~~~~

I’m so excited about the launch of my new series Wickham Hall this month; it introduces a brand new set of characters and a beautiful new setting in a stately home just outside Stratford-upon-Avon. It’s a story of love and friendship, family secrets and heartache and ultimately learning to love life and live for the moment! I’ve packed the story full of my favourite things such as the English countryside, exquisite gardens (including topiary – I adore topiary!), weddings, summer festivals, lots of tea and cake, bonfires and Christmas parties!

The series will be published digitally in four parts this year and then in a complete novel both digitally and in paperback in 2016:

Wickham Hall Part One – Hidden Treasures 25 June

Wickham Hall Part Two – Summer Secrets 23 July

Wickham Hall Part Three – Sparks Fly 24 September

Wickham Hall Part Four – White Christmas 26 November

 

Here’s the blurb!

Holly Swift has just landed the job of her dreams: events co-ordinator at Wickham Hall, the beautiful manor home that sits proudly at the heart of the village where she grew up. Not only does she get to organise for a living and work in stunning surroundings, but it will also put a bit of distance between Holly and her problems at home.

Holly loves the busy world of Wickham Hall – from family weddings to summer festivals, firework displays and Christmas grottos. But life isn’t as easily organised as an event at Wickham Hall (and even those have their complications…). Can Holly learn to let go and live in the moment?

After all, that’s when the magic happens…

 

Cathy Bramley Bio

Cathy Bramley Marsh Agency

Cathy is the author of the best-selling romantic comedies Ivy Lane, Appleby farm and Conditional Love. She lives in a small Nottinghamshire village with her husband, two teenage daughters and Pearl, the Cockerpoo.

Her recent career as a full-time writer of light-hearted romantic fiction has come as somewhat of a lovely surprise after spending eighteen years running her own marketing agency. However, she has always been an avid reader, hiding her book under the duvet and reading by torchlight. Luckily her husband has now bought her a Kindle with a light, so that’s the end of all that palaver.

Cathy loves to hear from her readers. You can get in touch via her Facebook page or on Twitter.
