Welcome to my website! I write murder mysteries, romantic suspense and romantic comedy. Here you’ll be able to find out about my books, read extracts and discover how I was inspired to write them.
You can read my novels in any order, although some characters appear in more than one book.
(See Recurring Characters)
Why Do Fools Fall in Love is set in Bath. A beautiful city, famed for its Roman baths, there is always some kind of filming going on, from costume dramas to detective thrillers. This inspired me to write about Shelby, the reluctant minder to a famous actor.
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is about Caitlin, a hotelier accused of murdering her husband. I had the idea to write it after joining a gym.
For A Girl’s Best Friend I wanted to create a kind of ‘anti-heroine’ and came up with Danielle, who has been so let down by the people in her life, she feels diamonds are the only thing she can depend on.
Breathless was inspired by my passion for family history. The only thing keeping Lainey in Port Rell is her dream of finding the long lost wreck of the Mary Eliza. But what if an ancient wreck isn’t the only thing waiting to be discovered?
Nemesis, is about Natalie, whose obsession with solving an old, notorious murder might very well be the death of her.
Something Wicked is a novella about Kat, who is so determined not to believe in those things that go bump in the night, she soon finds herself in real danger.
My love of dark fairy tales led me to write about Milla, and her search for the truth about her murdered mother in Trust Me I Lie.

When Milla Graham arrives in the picture-perfect village of Buckley she tells everyone she’s investigating the murder of her mother, who died eighteen years ago. But there’s already one Milla Graham buried in the churchyard and another about to be found dead in the derelict family mansion.
Obviously she’s lying.
Detective Inspector Ben Taylor has no life outside the police force. Even his own colleagues think he’s a boring stick-in-the-mud. But now he’s met Milla and his safe, comfortable life has been turned upside down. She’s crashed his car, emptied his wallet and is about to get him fired.
He knows she’s a liar because she cheerfully told him so.
Unless she’s lying about that too …
