I am delighted to announce that my Regency romance, mystery and suspense novel False Pretences, has been published as a paperback by Books We Love.

 

First Three Paragraphs:-

 

1815

 

“I have good news for you, Annabelle,” said Miss Chalfont, the well-educated head mistress and owner of The Beeches, an exclusive school for young ladies.

Seated on a straight-backed chair opposite Miss Chalfont’s walnut desk, Annabelle clasped her hands tightly on her lap. “Has my guardian told you who my parents are?” she asked in a voice quivering with excitement.

Regret flickered across Miss Chalfont’s face before she shook her head. “No, I am very sorry, he has not. For your sake, I wish he had. In fact, I do not know who he is. I receive instructions from a lawyer in Dover. To be honest, for no particular reason, I have always assumed your guardian’s identity is that of a man, but it could be that of a woman.”

Dover! Annabelle thought. The town where she had lived with her nurse before a nameless elegant lady, with a French accent, brought her to The Beeches. Time and time again, she had wondered if the lady was her guardian, or whether she was a stranger ordered to bring her here. She had no way of knowing, for the lady had not answered any of her questions.

 

False Pretences, which received *5 reviews, is available from www.amazon.com and www.amazon.co.uk
