Justin stands to inherit everything, and he is worried the other family members are trying to kill him.
Sulky and troublesome, Justin has a bad reputation with his relatives in the house.
But with kindness and empathy Sarah manages to win him round.
She soon realises that someone really is out to get Justin.
Can you she help Howard protect his charge?
Or will she also be in danger from those wishing to claim his Deadly Inheritance…?

Murder for Miss Emily:
Then some historical fiction in:
and A Change of Skies:
and a Guinea Stamp:
‘Murder for Miss Emily’ is a complex detective thriller that promises to take the reader on a scandalous journey.
When John Cluster, a local farmer, is found with a poultry-knife protruding from his back, the villagers of Cheswick have something new to gossip about.
All the evidence points to Miss Emily Mytton, whose house is the unfortunate scene of the crime. But as the last member of the village’s oldest family, and with a firm alibi, surely she must be innocent?
Detective-Sergeant Norris-Kerr may look like he is not up to the job, but what he exposes goes far deeper than any local gossip. And when William Bright is attacked, Norris-Kerr suspects that one victim was not enough for the killer.
Can he uncover the killer’s motive before they strike again?
The answer will lie in one of the village’s best hidden secrets...

Soon after arriving, Raihana finds herself in a language school, struggling to learn Danish, which she thinks sounds like the buzzing of bees.

Over the course of the bee season, Raihana and Gunnar forge an unlikely relationship, despite the disapproval of their friends and relatives.
But when the violence Raihana thought she had left behind in Afghanistan rears its head, she and Gunnar are forced to confront the ghosts of the past as they navigate the uncertain future…

A crime thriller that will keep you gripped to every page.
When the young archaeologist Maddy Crowe is drafted in to work as costume advisor on a major feature film about the Roman emperor Septimius Severus, she soon finds herself in the backbiting company of Hollywood actors – and a long way from her normal, safe world of academia.
But things are about to get much worse.
The mood on the set quickly turn sour when an unknown writer arrives, claiming that the director stole his plot.
And twenty minutes after he disappears people lie on the floor, bleeding from near-fatal gunshot wounds.
The writer is now the police’s prime suspect and a massive manhunt is underway.
But Maddy Crowe knows something is amiss.
Why weren’t the high-profile director, production assistants, or actors targeted by the killer?
She can’t believe that these two co-workers, a historian and a special effects coordinator, could have been the target of an assassination attempt. It’s all too convenient, and nobody’s asking the right questions.
In an attempt to clear the writer’s name, Maddy pairs up with fellow archaeologist and film-adviser, Dr Jeremy Flint to conduct her own private investigation.
Marauding through film sets from southern England to the Scottish Highlands, she must use her intuition to figure out who was behind the attack, and who the intended target might have been.
But Maddy is about to find out that some things are better left in the past…

Food Fight by Anne Penketh
After the sudden death of her French husband, Serge, Susan needs a change of scenery.
Leaving her beloved London home behind, she moves to Washington DC to pursue her high-flying career as a successful marketing executive for the giant food company, DeKripps.
But as far as her frosty daughter, Mimosa - a vegan political activist, is concerned, DeKripps and all that it stands for is pure evil.
Desperately missing her husband and trying to keep tabs on her troublesome daughter, Susan struggles to find her feet in her new environment. The one solace is her job, which she loves, … and the stash of delicious new ‘Guilty Secrets’ chocolates in her apartment which she can’t seem to get enough of.
Susan confides her loneliness in her work colleague, Ellen, who persuades her to try out the bewildering world of online dating – but the combination of dubious dating profiles and her expanding waistline don’t do much for her self-esteem.
In the process of launching a marketing campaign for her favourite Guilty Secrets chocolate boxes, Susan stumbles upon a few other secrets too – ones that could incriminate the company and all its unknowing employees … and ones that might explain why she keeps having to buy bigger clothes.
It dawns on her that perhaps her daughter was right all along.
Will Susan be brave enough to challenge the values upon which her entire career has been built?
And can she withstand the consequences?

Patriots by Kevin Doherty
Russia. The 1980s.
The Cold War is still raging.
Mikhail Gorbachev’s strict vision for Russia is driving out the economic corruption that riddled the Soviet regime.
Nikolai Serov watches as traitors in positions of the highest authority are forced into revealing their hands, knowing that he does not want to fall victim to the same fate of arrest and execution.
As head of the KGB’s First Chief Directorate and one of Moscow’s leading black marketeers and drug kings, Serov recognises that he has only one chance to construct a sophisticated plot which will ensure his own freedom.
Serov’s intricate plan unfolds in a calculated web of murder and betrayal as he activates a Russian mole who has lain dormant for the past twenty years and now is at the top rung of Britain’s MI5.
His vision for the future stretches far and wide as his secret master plan succeeds in influencing East and West policy and dictates the fates of their respective governments.
‘Patriots’ takes the reader right to the heart of Russia. Meticulously researched, complexly plotted, explosively violent and ruthlessly authentic, it is the first novel to deal with the darker side of Gorbachev's programmes of perestroika and glasnost.
