Murder mystery with a bit of a giggle is what you will find in this series, as a group of geriatric teenagers give the police a hand solving crime, whether they want it or not.
Cupboards Full of Skeletons
The first book in a fun new series.
Cupboards Full of Skeletons is the first novel in the Abandoned Wives and Widows Club series of thrilling, heart-warming and sometimes laugh out loud Cosy Mystery novels. They relate the mad antics of a group of sixty-something New Zealand women as they delve into the darker side of life and murder.
My name is Lydia Thompson, and my husband of over forty years had died. Going through his things, I found he had kept so many dark secrets from me. Thank goodness he’s gone at last, but whoops – did I help him on his way?
On the plus side, for the first time in my adult life I had made some friends. We indulged in coffee and cake in a local cafe, and generally misbehaved.
Then, when the father of my gorgeous great grandson died and the police said it was suicide, I knew it was nothing of the sort. Naturally the group decided to investigate. That was when the real trouble started.
The Girls on the Ghan
The second book in The Abandoned Wives and Widows Club Series.
The Girls on the Ghan novella is the second in The Abandoned Wives and Widows Club series of thrilling, heart-warming and sometimes laugh out loud Cosy Mystery novels. They relate the mad antics of a group of sixty-something New Zealand women as they delve into the darker side of life and murder.
The girls are storming Australia aboard one of the world’s famous trains, The Ghan Explorer. Luxury, incredible sights, good food and wine, but because the girls are there, mayhem and mystery are at the top of the menu – and maybe a little romance.
Life After Death
The third book in The Abandoned Wives and Widows Club Series.
Moving into a new house always causes problems, but Sylvia definitely didn’t expect this one.
The trouble started when the luscious Dave – visiting to try to patch things up with me, Lydia Thompson – was setting up Sylvia’s DVD – she was moving into a new place to start life with her fiancé, Harry. Dave used a recently recorded current events programme to check it was working properly, and who did Sylvia think she saw – her husband, Doug. Trouble was, he had been declared dead years ago after disappearing on a solo hunting trip.
What do you do when a friend thinks she could be about to commit bigamy? You start investigating of course. The trail leads us out of Gisborne and to the West Coast of New Zealand, with a whole new police force to terrorise – and a whole new darker side of humanity to become tangled up with.
