Brighton Belle
I loved writing this book - the first in the series. The mixture of crime and history was especially appealing to me and here I am talking to a Brighton-based blogger about the book and to Dorothy Dreyer on her blog, We Do write. Anne Stormont reviewed it here and there is also an official review up on MyShelf and on Dundee culture blog, Dura. Rhian Davies reviewed it on her respected crime blog and Matthew Ogborn interviewed me about writing the 1950s here. In search of the classic mystery novel also reviewed it and Eva Dolan gave it the thumbs up on Loitering with Intent. It was reviewed on the Crime Warp and on Pieces of Me and by Norfolk libraries.Also by fledgeling writer, Stef Woods on Yellow Bunting. Paragraph Planet published a 75 word extract and an interview here. And this one's a nice review from networked blogs.

London Calling
Mirabelle's second adventure is set in seedy Soho clubs in 1952....
I talked about crime writing generally
 and this book in particular with DURA magazine alongside wonderful crime writer, Lin Anderson. Mel Sherrat interviewed me about it on her fab blog, Murder They Wrote. The Bookbag gave it its first review. The Scotland on Sunday didn't particularly like it but DURA did and so did Edinburgh Spotlight. Clever Bookswithbunny full on raved (nice).

England Expects

England Expects is set in the summer heatwave of 1953 and is all about secrets - personal secrets as well as secret societies. The landscape is peppered with hidden passageways and secret codes. The first review was from Love Brighton. Then UK site, Lovereading gave it this lovely review. Reading blog, Jo's Book Journey is a long-time fan of the series.
 British Bulldog


British Bulldog is set in Brighton, London and Paris in 1954. It's a pivotal book in the series - where Mirabelle takes a long look at her past and begins to say goodbye to the memories that are haunting her. When she receives a bequest from a wartime acquaintance she is thrust back into her shadowy past and forced to face some of her demons. The first online review came from Indypirate.Then Newbooks magazine weighed in.
