Lovely write up of the Lindenshaw books at Padme's Library.

And a cool zebra from the Zany Zebra trail in Southampton. This one was decorated by a local school for children with special needs. I love his leg braces and boots!

The random number generator just chose Ree Dee as winner of the Lessons in Love audio book for the Jury of One blog tour. The code, as they say, is in the (virtual) post.

And another five star review for Jury of One, at Padme's Library. "A true gem that is well deserving of the English murder mystery genre that has left me hungry for further adventures from the apparently dangerous Lindenshaw countryside."

I won't draw a winner for the blog tour until next week, so you still have time to comment at any stop, the list of which is here.

"I liked Robin and Adam in the first book but I loved them in this sequel, especially seeing how far their relationship has come but realizing how they're still dealing with certain issues as a couple."

"I really enjoyed this book, especially as Campbell shows his mettle again, and I hope the series continues. I can recommend them to anyone who loves cozy fireside mysteries with a very English feel."

Read more at Prism Book alliance.

"I love when I can just sink into a book and forget about everything else. This book was the written equivalent of a…well, a steaming hot mug of tea. A little sweet, a little dark, and a bit dangerous if you’re not careful."

I did a sort of 'sortes' to find this snippet, opening the Jury of One document and scrolling through at random!

Robin Bright wiped the residual shaving cream from his face and grinned at his reflection in the mirror. Life tasted good, better than it had in a long time. Work was going well, with a promotion to detective chief inspector on the cards, but that wasn’t the only thing making him so happy. He had plenty of blessings in his private life, and if he was counting them, the number one was at present down in the kitchen, clattering about. And Robin’s second-best blessing was probably sitting in his basket, chewing on dog biscuits and hoping somebody might throw the end of a sausage in his direction.
Was it only a year ago that he’d have woken on a Saturday morning with nothing more to look forward to than the delights of washing and ironing, accompanied by the radio commentary of Spurs getting thrashed by the Arsenal? He used to hope the phone would go, calling him in to work because a gang of little scrotes had misbehaved on Friday night. How things had changed.

"It feels very realistic and the mystery and love story elements were both well written."

It'll be in the February Issue but is online now!

A writer of both mysteries and romances, Cochrane (The Best Corpse for the Job, 2014, etc.) strikes a fine balance between the two in story of professional meets personal.

"I enjoyed the mystery element to this book, reminiscent of British murder mysteries like Midsommer Murders."

And very nice it looks, too.

I love the series description:

Adam Matthews's life changed when Inspector Robin Bright walked into his classroom to investigate a murder.

Now it seems like all the television series are right: the leafy villages of England do indeed conceal a hotbed of crime, murder, and intrigue. Lindenshaw is proving the point.

Detective work might be Robin's job, but Adam somehow keeps getting involved—even though being a teacher is hardly the best training for solving crimes. Then again, Campbell, Adam's irrepressible Newfoundland dog, seems to have a nose for figuring things out, so how hard can it be?

And I'm tickled pink with it! Many thanks to Prism Book alliance for hosting the big unveiling.

Tah dah! The sequel to "The Best Corpse for the Job" is out on March 21st 2016 and available for pre-sale right now.

Inspector Robin Bright is enjoying a quiet Saturday with his lover, Adam Matthews, when murder strikes in nearby Abbotson, and he’s called in to investigate. He hopes for a quick resolution, but as the case builds, he’s drawn into a tangled web of crimes, new and old, that threatens to ensnare him and destroy his fledgling relationship.

Adam is enjoying his final term teaching at Lindenshaw School, and is also delighted to be settling down with Robin at last. Only Robin doesn’t seem so thrilled. Then an old crush of Adam’s shows up in the murder investigation, and suddenly Adam is yet again fighting to stay out of one of Robin’s cases, to say nothing of trying to keep their relationship from falling apart.

Between murder, stabbings, robberies, and a suspect with a charming smile, the case threatens to ruin everything both Robin and Adam hold dear. What does it take to realise where your heart really lies, and can a big, black dog hold the key?
