ROTIC CLUB MYSTERIES
ROTIC CLUB MYSTERY No.1
‘MURDER AND MR ROCHESTER’
(Released November 2016, the Charlotte Bronte Bicentenary year)
Here is my latest novel, the first of the Rotic Club mysteries based in Nottingham, England, and starring the super-librarian and sleuth, Emma-Jane Austin:
She and her friends are in a reading group called the Rotic Club that concentrates on the great romantic classics, such as Charlotte Bronte’s ‘Jane Eyre’ and Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ and ‘Pride and Prejudice’. But somehow each time Emma-Jane finds herself deeply involved in a murder investigation – oh, and deeply involved with a man who bears an uncanny resemblance to the hero of the book that they are studying…
Here is the blurb:
“Emma-Jane Austin and her book club friends are in love with Mr Rochester, Mr Darcy, Heathcliff, and all the other heroes of great romantic literature. But when a fatal ‘accident’ happens at E-J’s place of work – literally a body in the library – she has to turn instead to her love of murder mysteries to help her solve the puzzle.
Although, perhaps her passion for romantic heroes won’t be wasted after all, as the Detective in charge of the case starts to look remarkably like a real-life Mr Rochester…”

Want more of Emma-Jane Austin and her friends? Here is the blurb for the second Rotic Club mystery:
“It’s Halloween, and Emma-Jane Austin is at a masked ball and auction at the elegant Highfield Hall organised by Nottingham Knights, the upmarket dating agency. Instead of studying Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ for her reading group, E-J is bidding for the hunk in a black mask who could just be her Knight for the night. But when a wealthy young entrepreneur is found dead in the garden of the country house, Emma-Jane must now find a wise and true knight to disentangle her from the nightmare.”
