This week I’m giving a sneak preview of the gorgeous cover for my soon to be published new Kindle novel, A Cornish Obsession. I love it, and I hope that you will. The artist who designs all my covers is absolutely brilliant, but I think he has excelled himself this time. Thank you, Craig.
My original plan was to keep my head down and get on with the final edits of this latest book in my Cornish Crime Series, but just lately there have been so many distractions that writing has taken a bit of a back seat.
Now, however, I really have to get on with things, as the book has to be with my proofreader, Wendy, in a week’s time.
Until recently, the working title has been A Cornish Christmas Murder, but since there is more than one murder for poor DI Sam Kitto to investigate, that had to change.
Here’s a little taster of what A Cornish Obsession is about.
It’s a wintery December night and Jago Tilley is trudging back to his cottage in Marazion, unaware that he will be dead before morning.
DI Sam Kitto, of Devon and Cornwall Police, investigates the old fisherman’s brutal murder, and once again magazine editor, Loveday Ross, finds herself being drawn unbidden into her policeman partner’s case.
Suspicion falls on the dead man’s disreputable nephew, Billy Travis. But what is his relationship with St Ives gallery owner, Zachariah Paxton-Quinn?
The magazine’s owner, Merrick Tremayne, is acting out of character, and Loveday suspects his strange mood could have something to do with her discovery of a burglar rummaging through the magazine’s old archive files.
And then there is the glamorous Dutch boutique owner, Sabine Des Fries. What is her connection with the Tremayne family?
Sam and Loveday’s friends, Keri, Cassie, Dr Adam, and Ben Poldavy, are all together again, with a host of new characters.
I just hope my readers enjoy it as much as I have loved writing it.
