I’m delighted to advise that Hush Little Baby, my ninth book(!!!), and the third and brand spanking new novel in the DC Beth Chamberlain (Family Liaison Officer) series, is released in e-book today! The paperback will follow shortly.
This novel tests Beth to the limit when new evidence dredges up a cold case and she is required to support the families while quietly investigating them. It has already received some wonderful early reviews including this amazing quote from Angela Marsons, an author whose work I admire:
‘Gripping subjects, brilliantly drawn characters and a twisty turny journey from beginning to end. A tense, thrilling read and definitely 5 humongous stars from me.’
Here’s a reminder of the blurb:
Someone stole a baby…
One sunny day in July, someone took three-month-old Alicia Owen from her pram outside a supermarket. Her mother, Marie, was inside. No one saw who took Alicia. And no one could find her.
They silenced her cry…
Fifteen years later, a teenager on a construction site sees a tiny hand in the ground. When the police investigate, they find a baby buried and preserved in concrete. Could it be Alicia?
But the truth will always out.
When Alicia disappeared, the papers accused Marie of detachment and neglect. The Owens never got over the grief of their child’s disappearance and divorced not long after. By reopening the case, DC Beth Chamberlain must reopen old wounds. But the killer may be closer than anyone ever suspected…
Hush Little Baby is available here and if you enjoy reading this instalment as much as I enjoyed writing it, please consider leaving a review afterwards. Reviews are hugely important because they help other readers decide whether to give an author they are unfamiliar with a try, and I’m immensely grateful to those of you who have reviewed my books in the past.
I should add that this series works better read in order. The good news is that if you haven’t read the first two books, The Other Woman and For Better, For Worse, yet, you can currently pick them up on sale in online stores. Here is the link for Amazon UK.
To celebrate the release, I’m running a competition to win some Beth Chamberlain goodies on my Facebook page today. Do hope over and join me for a chance to enter!
I’d like to extend huge thanks to everyone who has helped to bring Hush Little Baby to publication today. All the early readers and reviewers, the wonderful book bloggers hosting the blog tour, my delightful publisher, Aria Fiction, for all their hard work behind the scenes, and of course to you, the readers. For without readers there wouldn’t be any books and what a dull world that would be!
Take care, all, and keep you and yours safe.
