It’s nearly time. Caster & Fleet book 6, The Case of the Crystal Kisses, has been through editing, gone through betas, had a final polish, and is now in the hands of our very capable proofreader. And it launches ONE MONTH TODAY!
This one was quite tough to write; not so much because of any plot problems but because we knew it would be the last in the series. It’s that combination of wanting to go out on a high and also making sure we include enough closure and happy endings to round off the series without detracting from the individual book.
Anyway, hopefully we managed it – certainly the response from betas has been very positive – and in a month from now you can find out! Launch date is Tuesday 13 August, but as usual the ebook can be pre-ordered for $3.99/£3.99, and it will also be available on Kindle Unlimited. We plan to have the paperback edition available on or near launch date too.
Here’s the blurb:
Who would miss a Crystal Kiss?
When Katherine and Connie receive a note from Mr Maynard at the Department, his request seems easy. After all, how hard can it be to investigate confectionery? But Crystal Kisses are everywhere, and frighteningly addictive.
How have the sweets become so popular? And why are so many being given away? Connie and Katherine travel across London, where they see the power of the sweets for themselves, and before too long find themselves back in the music hall, where they make some disturbing connections…
The duo’s investigations indicate everything is above board — almost too reputable — and all their enquiries result in dead ends. But someone knows they’re on the case, and will stop at nothing to make them abandon it. An easy case becomes a nightmare of disapproval, stress, and shame — yet the duo feel they must fight on.
Will Katherine and Connie dare to risk their reputations, and even their happiness, to find out what lies behind the Crystal Kisses?
The Case of the Crystal Kisses is the sixth book in the Caster & Fleet mystery series, set in 1890s London.
