1861. George’s life changes forever the day he meets Lucy. She’s beautiful and charming, and he sees a future with her that his position as the second son in a wealthy family has never offered him. But when Lucy dies in a suspected poisoning days after rejecting George, he finds himself swept up into a murder investigation. George loved Lucy; he would never have harmed her. So who did?

Now. On the surface Cassie is happy with her life: a secure job, good friends, and a loving family. When a mysterious gift in a long-forgotten will leads her to a dark secret in her family’s history she’s desperate to learn more. But the secrets in Cassie’s family aren’t all hidden in the past, and her research will soon lead her to a revelation much closer to home – and which will turn everything she knows on its head…

There’s to be a blog tour, beginning on 11th November and hosted by the marvellous Rachel’s Random Resources.


First blogger review for this book is from the wonderful Cindy Spear, who is so supportive of many authors. “At the core of the mystery are the wild and binding threads of family history: branches of a family tree that have become tangled with fascinating secrets that must be unknotted and rectified.” Thank you so much.Cindy!

Cindy also interviewed me for her blog and you can read the interview here.

I’ve also had some lovely early reviews on Netgalley, including one from Norma F which makes me both blush and giggle: “The queen of dual timelines has done it again” – well please excuse me while I polish my crown!
