Stella Cameron is coming out with a new book! Here’s a sneak peak:
Introducing Alex Duggins
You can’t outrun the past…
…and tripping over a frosted corpse is a complication that could destroy Alex Duggins’ attempt to restart her life. The discovery of a murder victim threatens to unearth some old secrets, including her own.
As the tiny town of Folly-on-Weir braces for a chilling winter and snow blankets Britain’s Cotswold Hills, a killer faces a deadline. A terrible crime was believed to be safely hidden, but time and conscience can wear on a secret.
The clock ticks and with the police breathing down her neck, Alex knows she’s at the top of the suspect list. Desperate to clear her name and find the real murderer she begins to peel back the layers of deception that have long-concealed one of the town’s darkest secrets. But time is also running out for a killer who has nothing left to lose. What’s one more murder? Someone intends that Alex will be the next snow-covered body found in the beautiful hills above the town.
And an excerpt:
Not a single vehicle had passed on the narrow road that forked away from the tiny village below and rose to traverse the hill. There was a scatter of farms and houses up here, all with feeder tracks from the road. But any people out there were probably tucked up sleeping by now.
You couldn’t see any buildings from the road.
Bogie scrabbled closer and pressed his wet nose to Dominic’s neck.
The wind picked up, drove straight at him, and he leaned against it to push his way on, and the snow drove into his face and crammed inside his collar.
He crossed his hands over the dog and pushed his bare hands beneath his arms.
This had to be done.
Old wrongs must be put right, lies dispelled quickly, for the sake of peace, his own but more importantly, the others involved. His challenge was to bring secrets into the light without harming the innocent.
Coming September 1.
