Forget cold hard crime, Cozy is just as thrilling

There was a lovely piece in the Sunday Independent in Ireland by Anne Marie Scanlon about cozy crime last weekend, describing it as the perfect way to ‘banish the bleaks’ of the cold winter months.

A CLEAN CANVAS is described as ‘the second of a, hopefully long, series featuring Lena Szarka, a Hungarian cleaner and amateur detective by Elizabeth Mundy.’ Scanlon compares Lena Szarka to Agatha Raisin: both are ‘formidable and funny women who like men’.

A CLEAN CANVAS is published today!

I’m thrilled that today is publication day for the second novel in the Lena Szarka series, A CLEAN CANVAS! It sees Lena dust off her detective skills when a masterpiece goes missing from a gallery she cleans in Islington.

Embroiling herself in the sketchy world of thwarted talents, unpaid debts and elegant fraudsters, Lena finds that there’s more to this gallery than meets the eye.

Please look out for it in your local book shop, or you can order it on Amazon here.

In other news, my second baby is also out now! Violet was born 30th December at 10.24pm weighing 7lb 11oz of gorgeousness. She’s not available on Amazon but you can see a little picture of her here.

Happy new year!
