I’m very happy to announce that Poison at Pemberton Hall, book 1 in the Vita Carew series, is published as an ebook on Amazon tomorrow (paperback coming soon). Here’s the blurb:
December 1903. A glittering musical evening ends in catastrophe. Is the famous chef’s seafood really to blame or are the tangled secrets of Pemberton Hall about to unravel?
To Vita a grand gala occasion is nothing but a dull distraction from her studies. But when disaster strikes, she helps the stricken victims. She soon discovers a desperate governess, a scheming footman and an operatic diva with big ambitions all had good reason to disrupt the glamorous country house dinner. But who did, and why? And can she stop the poisoner before he or she strikes again?
I had fun with this one! It is my therapeutic escape from the pressures of 2020 – I hope it will distract you too.
Poison at Pemberton Hall is a prequel to A Thin Sharp Blade, which was published in April. The challenge was to introduce the characters and explain how Aunt Louisa came to have such a very distinguished chef working for her in her modest house in Eden Street.
