In The CardsĀ 
(coming November 2019)

Laura Penhallow thought she was accepting an invitation for a pleasant house party on a remote island off the coast of Cornwall, so she could get to know Galen Amberley and his family better. When there’s a sudden death, Laura, Galen, and his best friend Martin are thrown into uncertainty about who to believe, what happened, and what it means for them.

(Set in 1926, a locked-room murder mystery in a manor house in the Scilly Isles.)

On The Bias 

Mistress Castalia Jones has built up her dressmaking business stitch by stitch. Comfortably middle-aged, she has apprentices to train, clothing to design (and plenty of it), and the freedom to make her own choices. When she overhears uncomfortable gossip about one of her best clients and his fiancee, she finds herself sharing the details with his valet, Benton. 

(Set in 1926, in Wales and the New Forest, England, with a side of hurt/comfort and a difficult rooster.)  

Seven Sisters

Vivian Porter’s inquiry agency specialises in unusual problems that require discretion – and sometimes unusual talents. When her assistant is asked for help, Vivian agrees to investigate stories of ghosts and unusual occurrences at a boarding house in a rural Oxfordshire home. Cadmus Michaels, the absent-minded academic who owns the house, isn’t much bothered by the ghosts, but is not at all sure about Vivian upsetting his residents, or what she’s up to in the woods.

(Set in 1924 in Oxfordshire, and including more about the Fatae.)
