I can’t decide whether I should call this my last book release of 2018 or my first of 2019 – but anyway, here it is!
A Phoenix Rises, the third book in the Sherlock & Jack novella series, will launch in ebook on 1st January and is available to preorder now. It follows on, after a gap of three years, from the events of Something Blue. And yet again, Jacky finds herself drawn into the world of Holmes and Watson.

Now, you may have noticed that this cover looks quite different from the covers of the first two books in the series, A Jar of Thursday and Something Blue. Or at least, the original covers.
At first I didn’t intend Thursday to be the start of a series; I thought of it as an offshoot of my first book, The Secret Notebook of Sherlock Holmes, and so it had a similar cover. However, as the series has progressed it has moved further away from the feel of that first book, and I wanted to give it new covers which would better reflect its tone and style.
Here they are:
And here is the blurb for A Phoenix Rises:
Sherlock Holmes is dead. Apparently.
Jacky Huggins only wants to cheer up the recently-bereaved Dr Watson. But when she accompanies him on a secret investigation into a kidnapping, she doesn’t expect to raise the dead.
Now Jacky is caught up in a cat-and-mouse game between an adversary who seems to hold all the cards and a detective who cannot come out of the shadows. And to make matters worse, Jacky is torn between her role as a wife and mother and the thrill of the chase…
Jacky longs to bring Sherlock Holmes back, but to do so she must find a way to help a man who won’t be helped — and risk her own reputation in the process.
How can Jacky reconcile friendship with family? And is it worth the risk?
So there you go – starting 2019 off with a bang! If you pick up a copy of A Phoenix Rises, I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Val – I’m not sure why but it seems much easier to do a series of covers in one go!
And of course Happy New Year to you too!
