It’s going to be at Waterstones, The Galleries at 7pm, Friday 4 March. I’m delighted we’re going to serve prosecco and Wiper and True beer provided by our local vintner, Grape and Grind, plus a Bone by Bone inspired cake by cake artist Tamarind Galliford of Ahh Toots! based in St Nicholas’ Market. My friend, Ingrid Bates, is donating a couple of bottles of her delicious rosé from her own vineyard (how cool is that!) Dunleavy Vineyards, for a lucky few to sample!
Hope to see you there!

The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson
Ted Severson is having a martini in Heathrow airport when he meets Lily Kintner. Over drinks and during the long flight back to the states, he tells Lily that his wife is cheating on him. He confesses that he’d like to kill her. It’s a casual, throw-away remark; the kind of thing an angry man might say after one too many gins. But Lily takes him seriously, and by the time the plane lands, the two of them have agreed to murder Ted’s beautiful, adulterous wife.
This is a wonderfully written thriller, set against the chill sweep of Maine in winter, with compelling, ice-cold characters and plot twists that will take your breath away. more »
