Editorial Reviews


'This was a great find. A librarian turns to sleuthing in 1960s England .... I really enjoyed the relationship she has with her blind ex-policeman father, as well as with her husband, Greg. A real page-turner. I've already bought the next book in the series and looking forward to being able to start on it. And hoping there will be many more to come.'

'This was a light and easy read where I got straight into the story. I really like the way the author depicted the 60s since I am too young enough to remember this era... but it is peppered with all sorts of nostalgia, the Beatles, the Vietnam War, not to mention colourful images of Woodstock and the hippie movement. I felt as if I was there!'

'1960s mobile librarian turns sleuth and channels Hercule Poirot in this great whoduunit that left me guessing right till the end. Intriguing detective story with lovely period setting and interesting characters. I'm looking forward to seeing what Janie Juke solves next. Love the relationship she has with her ex-policeman father.'

'Loved every page and didn't want to put it down...looking forward to starting the next one soon.'

'Once started you can't put it down!. Can't wait until the next one in the series.'

'Thoroughly enjoyable book. Kept me interested till the end. Looking forward to the next one. Well done.'

'The second in the Janie Juke series. Another intriguing mystery as Janie is hired to locate a woman last seen by her client during the Second World War. Once again we join the librarian in her investigation in late 1960's England. Now pregnant, Janie must again keep her sleuthing activities secret from her protective husband while she delves into solving the case for her client before time runs out. A very enjoyable, cozy read. I look forward to many more in the series.'

'I enjoyed this ...the glimpses into WW2 are particularly good. Solid writing, great story, and Janie as a character is growing on me. I hope there are more in the series.'

'I love how the characters have developed in this book which is full of perfect period details (the Italian food scene made me laugh) and twists and turns till the end. Will definitely be reading the next in the Janie Juke series.'

About the Author

Isabella is never happier than when she is immersing herself in the sights, sounds and experiences of the 1960s. Researching all aspects of family life back then formed the perfect launch pad for her works of fiction. Isabella rediscovered her love of writing fiction during two happy years working on and completing her MA in Professional Writing and since then has gone to publish five novels, two novellas and a short story collection.
Her first Sussex Crime Mystery series features young librarian and amateur sleuth, Janie Juke. Set in the late 1960s, in the fictional seaside town of Tamarisk Bay, we meet Janie, who looks after the mobile library. She is an avid lover of Agatha Christie stories - in particular Hercule Poirot - using all she has learned from the Queen of Crime to help solve crimes and mysteries. As well as three novels, there are three novellas in the series, which explore some of the back story to the Tamarisk Bay characters.
Her latest novel, Crossing the Line, is the first of a new series of Sussex Crimes, featuring retired Italian detective, Giuseppe Bianchi who arrives in the quiet seaside town of Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, to find a dead body on the beach and so the story begins...
Isabella's standalone novel, The Forgotten Children, deals with the emotive subject of the child migrants who were sent to Australia - again focusing on family life in the 1960s, when the child migrant policy was still in force.
