Dancing with Death
A Nell Drury Mystery

1925. The fashionable Bright Young Things of London have descended on Wychbourne Court, the Kentish stately home of Lord and Lady Ansley, for an exotic fancy dress ball followed by a midnight ghost hunt.

Chef Nell Drury knows she is in for a busy weekend. What she wasn’t expecting was a sudden, violent murder.


Classic at Bay
Crime in the Fast Lane, starring Jack Colby, car detective

The once notorious cabaret singer Adora Ferne guards a private treasure trove of twelve classic Jaguars, each donated by a former lover, but she hankers after the one that is missing.

Enter Jack Colby, who has been commissioned to buy the thirteenth dream car from its owner. But what seems a simple task is far from that, and Jack finds himself racing into danger.

The third in the Four Seasons quartet beginning with Summer’s End and Dark Harvest

Winter Roses
Amy Myers (first published under the name of Harriet Hudson)

But a new world is waiting as the Lilley sisters struggle to determine their own futures.



Look for me by Moonlight
Harriet Hudson

Beth, daughter of the landlord of the Wheatsheaf  Inn, is the dark-eyed fiery belle of the village with her life before her: carefree and heartfree.

Until Richard Lyle, a handsome, daredevil student barrister, bursts into her life one hop-picking season, to change it for ever.



Murder in the Queen’s Boudoir
Amy Myers

The ghost of the tragic Queen Marie Antoinette walks again at the Petit Trianon in 1906, but the dead body found in the queen’s bedchamber is no ghost.

Master chef Auguste Didier has to track down the murderer before murder strikes again.


Into the Sunlight
Amy Myers (first published under the name of Harriet Hudson)
