Out now! The Cherry Blossom Murder

Today is publication day! My new murder mystery, The Cherry Blossom Murder is out!

Stubborn, down-to-earth Londoner Josie loves her life in Tokyo and her friends in glamorous actress Tammy’s fan club – until she finds a body under the cherry blossom. Determined to find the killer, she goes behind the scenes of the spectacular Takarazuka Revue to expose the secrets and lies, save a priceless treasure – and sort out her own increasingly tangled love life.

It’s an entertaining murder mystery about a British female amateur detective and it’s set in present-day Japan. The Takarazuka Revue is real and truly amazing – for more about it see my Takarazuka page.
