A quick note from Lynn:
I’m delighted to publish the sixth book in the Lord James Harrington series. One of my regular readers summed these books up well commenting on the great sense of community and that this aspect is just as important as the mystery to her. That pleased me enormously as that has always been my aim. A big thank you to all of you that continue to enjoy this cosy series. As you know, I write simply for the fun of it and it’s wonderful that so many people appear to be getting as much fun reading them.
For those new to the series, the first two or three books were ‘testers’ so you’ll find some novice writing there – that’s why they’re the price they are. But training and workshops and now the skills of a professional writer and editor ensure I continue to improve. Would I liken these books to any other series? Probably the Paul Temple novels by Francis Durbridge for the mystery part. The community/folklore element comes from my own experience on living close to a very community-based village that celebrate customs and traditions.
Hope you enjoy this latest adventure and welcome the world of Lord James Harrington.
Meet Lord James Harrington and his delightful wife, Beth; residents of the tiny village of Cavendish, deep in the heart of West Sussex in England. They adore hosting seasonal events, running their country hotel, keeping the local folklore alive and listening to the latest murder mystery on the wireless. But mysteries don’t always remain on the airwaves…
James and Beth are taking a well-earned holiday with Stephen and Anne in Polpennarth, Cornwall, where the Cornish Legends festival is taking place. James learns that, during the opening procession, a local fisherman vanished and, when further men disappear in broad daylight, he can’t help but put his sleuthing hat on.
The streets were crowded yet no witnesses have come forward. If they were kidnapped, why is there no ransom demand? What are the flashing lights off the coastline? Who is the eccentric woman on the moors? Have the Cornish Legends really come to life? And are the ladies of the Women’s Institute involved in some way?
James delves into the mystery but his questions come at a price. Can he really afford to ignore the dangers?
Join James, Beth and a handful of regulars on the spectacular Cornish Riviera and enjoy the latest adventure.
