It’s launch day! If you like, you can imagine that I’m writing this with virtual bunting strung above my head, and drinking a glass of virtual champagne (although it’s a bit early for that sort of thing).
Anyway, I’m very pleased to announce that Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, is now available in ebook and paperback! It’s also part of the Kindle Unlimited programme, so subscribers can borrow it for free. And you can read the beginning of the book using Amazon’s free book preview (there’s a link at the end of this post).
Here are a few of the things you can expect to find in Pippa’s latest case (don’t worry, none of this constitutes spoilers):
- Pippa juggling too many things
- At least one academic
- A substantial helping of snark
- Victorian letters
- Excruciating poetry (I make no apology for this)
- Uncooperative children
- Many, many cups of tea
And another thing the book is starting to have is reviews! I’m still waiting for them to show on Amazon, but you can find out what my ARC readers thought on Goodreads.
The coldest case you ever saw…
When Pippa Parker attends a meeting about Clementina Stoate, Victorian poet and former resident of Much Gadding, she has no idea what she’s getting into.
First a file of Clementina’s letters goes missing — and of course there are no copies. Who has taken the letters, and why?
Clementina’s descendant hires Pippa to track the letters down. But as she investigates their disappearance, Pippa discovers a bigger mystery. The only problem is that everyone involved is dead.
Can Pippa go back in time and solve a case which has puzzled Clementina’s readers for generations? Or is she risking her reputation for nothing?
Past Tense is the sixth book in the Pippa Parker cozy mystery series, set in and around the English village of Much Gadding.
