An Accidental Murder. Yellow Cottage Vintage Mysteries Book 1
Young widow Isobella Bridges discovered and fell in love with The Yellow Cottage as a child. Many years later she returned to Linhay Island, discovered it was for sale and bought it on a whim. Or so she thought. She had no idea at the time how much it would change her life, nor that it was yet to reveal all it's secrets. Ones that even Ella couldn't imagine.
Having been in residence a few short weeks, and still unpacking boxes, she receives a telephone call from her brother inviting her up to London for Sunday lunch. This call sets in motion a series of events that puts Ella's life, and those of the people closest to her in danger.

"An accidental murder by J. New is a short novella, but it offers a really big story. It is an unpredictable story with friendly ghosts and likeable characters. I read this in one night because it was just too good to put down. It's the first in a series and I am anxiously awaiting the next one." Trudi LoPreto for Readers Favorite.
