Affection for Cambridge and its surroundings shines through the story and its gentle humour ensures these murders won’t keep you awake at night.

A Good holiday read.

Don’t forget other books from the Wordsmiths

I moved to the Fens in retirement after a lifetime in London and have been fascinated by its history. Wendy’s memoir of her childhood, growing up in a converted railway carriage, is an affectionate social history of the area from someone who has lived here all her life.

Well-written and easy to read, it contains plenty of local colour. As a former owner of restored caravans and vintage motorhomes I found myself picturing Wendy’s railway carriage home as she describes it through her childhood. I wish her luck with its restoration; balancing historic features with modern convenience is always a challenge.

Here’s one he published earlier

This was Stephen’s debut book, published before joining the Wordsmiths. Stephen advised us in our first publishing venture (both anthologies include his writing) and he has new stories recently published in two anthologies (see for details).

Stephen’s book shows you how to make your dreams into reality, and illustrates this by showing how he did it. Includes twenty worksheets and four cutouts that can be downloaded and printed out to help with exercises in the book.
