Rosemary Lillywhite had no intention of becoming a lady detective, but when a desperate woman knocks on the door of her dead husband’s investigative office, she’s forced to make a choice: either take the case or turn Grace Barton away. Working cases with Andrew had been fulfilling, but a woman in 1920’s London couldn’t run such a business by herself—or could she?
When Rosemary discovers that Grace is from the same village where her family lives, and that they’re all invited to a party at Barton Manor, she knows it’s a proposition she can’t refuse. With her best friend, bright young thing Vera Blackburn at her side, Rosemary heads to the country and finds herself embroiled in a murder investigation.
The plot thickens when she’s forced to defend her brother Frederick’s good name, and is confronted with romantic feelings towards handsome CID detective and old friend Max Whittington. Will Rosemary solve the crime before the murderer strikes again?Amazon - Kindle Unlimited View Book
Nobody needs a holiday as much as Rosemary Lillywhite. She’s just solved a grisly murder, nearly getting herself killed in the process, and it’s been less than a year since the death of her private investigator husband.

So when, before she’s finished packing her case, another killer strikes—this one even closer to home than the last—Rosemary has to decide which will win out: her desire to get away for some much deserved relaxation, or her visceral need to see justice properly served.

Will she finally open her heart to a man other than her late husband, and if she does, which one will she choose—Desmond, or handsome CID detective Max Whittington?Amazon - Kindle Unlimited
