Victoria Hawthorne's recently published, The House at Helygen, has picked up a fab review in Choice magazine and was a 'Pick of the Paperbacks':
"The death of Harry Fox at his ancestral home, Helygen House, is regarded as suicide by the police, a verdict disputed by his pregnant wife, Josie, who suspects foul play. As Jodie starts digging into the history of Helygen, she stumbles on its mysterious past. Once you adjust to the interlocking timelines, it's a compelling read."

Happy Publication Day to L. C. Tyler, who last week saw his eighth John Grey mystery book, The Summer Birdcage, published last week.
Duke's Company actress Kitty Burgess has a stunning future before her - until she vanishes after the opening performance of Aminta Grey's new play, The Summer Birdcage.
One of her fellow actors swears he saw her being bundled into a black coach driven by six black horses outside the theatre. Then no more is heard of her - until the body of a young woman is found dead beside the road in Hertfordshire. It appears to be Kitty, so Aminta and her husband Sir John Grey, travel to Bishop's Stortford to identify her.
Back in London Aminta catches sight of a young woman who looks exactly like Kitty but before she can do anything, the woman runs off and is lost in the crowd. Meanwhile, rumours abound at court that Kitty was about to become the king's new mistress and all fingers are being pointed at Lady Castlemaine for having arranged for her rival to be spirited away and killed. And now John Grey finds that is no longer just his wife who is determined to prove Kitty Burgess is alive. It would seem her disappearance - and possible reappearance - is part of some much wider conspiracy, and that Kitty may be about to play the most dangerous, and possibly deadly, role of her life. A role from which there may be no escape...
Every Shade of Happy, the most recent novel from Phyllida Shrimpton, has picked up some wonderful reviews in the past week:
"A lovely, intergenerational tale, well-told, that's both moving and uplifting."
"Exploring lost dreams, loneliness and the unlikely but soulful commune ... it's captivating."
In the seaside town of Hamlet Wick, nine guests assemble for a New Year's Eve party to remember. The owner of Hamlet Hall has organised a murder mystery evening with a 1920s twist, and everyone has their own part to play. But the game has barely begun when one guest is found dead - killed by a fatal injury to the head. With no phone signal and no way out of the house, the others are trapped with a killer in their midst.
Someone is playing by their own rules. And in a close-knit community, old rivalries run deep...
The book will be published by Century in February 2023.
