    Know thine enemy ... 
    Evan Warlow is a man with enemies. As a DCI in the Dyfed Powys force, that comes with the territory. But when two of his most vicious critics are abducted and turn up dead in a macabre tableau, tough questions need to be asked. 
    The uncomfortable answers lead Evan and the team back to his roots and an old case that has haunted him for years. The deaths in the forest have all the hallmarks of a dangerous killer with no fear of consequences. And when one of Evan’s fellow officers becomes the next target, it’s clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet. 
    There’s a coppery aroma of vendetta in the air. Unless Evan and the team can get to the root cause of the killer’s twisted anger, there will be more deaths. And guess who’s next on the list?

    The Gilded Age A Tale of Today

    Originally published in 1873, The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today is the only novel Twain co-wrote (C.D. Warner was a good friend and neighbor of the Clemens family in Hartford, and the collaboration sprang from their wive's challenge and encouragement). The title, "The Gilded Age" became synonymous with graft, materialism and corruption in public life, which are well represented in this work. Like others of his works, this one reflects truths about American Society that remain pertinent today. Many of the characters and incidents that occur in the Gilded Age had their real-life origins in Clemens relatives and history, a fact which he revealed in his newly published (2011) Autobiography.

    The Miss Dumpy parade is back in all its glory on Secret Seal Isle, and with Rain in charge, the residents are getting more than they bargained for. When the festivities are temporarily delayed, Cookie discovers Rain’s not the only one with junk in her trunk. A dead body is found in the classic automobile Rain commandeered for the inn’s float. And when the corpse is identified as a man with ties to the DeMasi mob, it appears Cookie’s past may have finally caught up with her. 
    But Cookie’s not the only one who is threatened by the murder investigation. The new deputy-sheriff, June Loon, arrests Rain and her friends for the crime. It’s clear Secret Seal Isle is no longer a safe place for Cookie, but leaving the sleepy island town could also mean losing Dylan, the man she loves. With a mother in chains, a killer on the loose, and her heart on the line, Cookie must solve the case to save it all.

    --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding Murder in the Manor)
    
    THISTLEWOOD MANOR: A GAL’S OFFING is Book #9 in a charming 1920s cozy mystery series by Fiona Grace, #1 bestselling author of Murder in the Manor, which has over 300 five star reviews!
    
    For centuries, Thistlewood Manor has stood as home to the Montagu family, a beacon to British aristocracy in rural England. But it’s 1928, and in this new age of women’s rights, Eliza Montagu, 27, a free spirit, has turned her back on her family to live an artist’s life in London.
    
    Yet after Eliza is summoned home, she decides to stay (for now) to help her father run the ailing family business. The presence of her childhood best friend, Oliver, also gives her a reason to stay, as she wonders if their unfulfilled romance might ever come to fruition.
    
    The day Eliza has always dreamed of has finally come: her big wedding day.
    
    But a shocking twist leaves someone dead—and leaves fingers pointing to the bride-to-be.
    
    Will Eliza’s big moment turn into a nightmare?
    
    Or can she solve this case and tie the knot once and for all?
    
    A charming historical cozy mystery series that transports readers back in time, THISTLEWOOD MANOR is mystery at its finest: spellbinding, atmospheric and impossible to put down. A page-turner packed with shocking twists, turns and a mystery that’s hard to solve, it will leave you reading late into the night, all while you fall in love with its unforgettable heroine.
    
    Future books in the series will soon be available!
