Lake District Mysteries
Titles in the Lake District series:
Introducing Persimmon (Simmy) Brown, a florist working in Windermere and living in Troutbeck. Her parents run a local B&B. When Simmy arranges the flowers for a big society wedding in a smart hotel, she finds herself reluctantly involved in a murder investigation. With her assistant Melanie and new friend Ben, they form an ill-matched team to seek out the facts.
THE AMBLESIDE ALIBI
Simmy delivers a bouquet to an old lady in Ambleside, and is once again dragged into a murky situation that is dangerous and bewildering. DI Moxon, local police detective, finds himself as concerned for Simmy's safety as he is to find the killer.
THE CONISTON CASE (due 2014)
Valentine's Day proves to be overwhelming for several reasons. Simmy's workload is suddenly all-consuming, with some disconcerting reactions to the flowers she delivers. An old friend turns up, bringing confusion with her, just as a murder victim is discovered in Coniston.
