Synopsis

NPLH finalThe uber-rich editor of Home decorating magazine loses everything, including her Ponzi-schemer husband, when their luxury wine-country home mysteriously goes up in flames.

Homeless, destitute, presumed dead and branded a criminal, the once-proud Doria has a crash course in how the other half lives.

Meanwhile, reluctant sleuth Camilla Randall is facing homelessness and destitution too, as Doria’s husband’s schemes unravel and take down innocent bystanders along the way.

When the mysterious—and dangerously attractive—Mr. X. turns up at Camilla’s bookstore looking for clues to the death of a missing homeless man, Camilla joins in the search.

With the help of brave trio of homeless people and a little dog named Toto, Doria, Camilla and Mr. X journey to unmask the real killer and reveal the dark secrets of Doria’s “financial wizard” husband.

As ever, Anne R. Allen weaves a unique blend of quirky characters outlandish situations and laugh-out-loud one-liners that all somehow come together and make perfect sense at the end.

No Place Like Home is the fourth of the Camilla Randall Mysteries, but can be read as a stand-alone novel.

5a.m. Flash 010113 – Free humorous eBook by Jenny Worstall 1-3 January 2013

‘Make a Joyful Noise’ by Jenny Worstall is free on Amazon from today, Tuesday 1st to Thursday 3rd January.

Synopsis

Make a Joyful Noise CoverMake a Joyful Noise is the sparkling tale of a choir preparing for a very special Christmas performance of “Belshazzar’s Feast”. We meet a host of characters who are mercilessly sent up by the author: Lucy the staggeringly trusting young music teacher, Tristan the lecherous and vain anti-hero, Miss Greymitt the ageing and slightly confused choir pianist, Claire the shameless and scheming temptress, and singers with nothing but resonance between their ears. Just as all does not run smoothly for King Belshazzar in Walton’s music, so the characters in the novel suffer from hopeless yearnings, romantic misunderstandings and the unfortunate consequences of their own misguided actions. All is sharply and wittily observed in a delightful mix of romance, music and humour.

JennyJenny Worstall spent her childhood years in Dartmouth, Bath, Dorset and Naples. She is a musician, teacher and writer, and lives in London with her husband and two teenage children.
