About the Author
The Mantle of God: a Dottie Manderson mystery. Can a tiny piece of faded cloth really be worth killing for? Is the past ever truly forgotten? A friend asks Dottie Manderson to find out more about a scrap of fabric found in a dead man’s pocket. But as soon as she starts to ask questions, things begin to happen. It’s not long before someone dies, and Dottie has to wonder if she may be next. What can it mean? Can the insignificant scrap really be a clue to a bloody past and a time of religious hatred and murder? Join Dottie as she works to uncover the truth of a distant past, and at the same time discover secrets held by her own closest friends and family. In addition to all that, she is forced to admit to her own growing feelings for a certain police inspector. Can William Hardy put the murderer behind bars before it’s too late? Just who is behind the recent string of robberies, nicknamed the Dinnertime Thefts by the media? Setting aside his own personal tragedy, Hardy has to get behind the polite façade of 1930s London society to find a killer. I mainly write in the mystery/crime genre but I also enjoy dabbling in fantasy fiction. I'm married with two grown up children and now live in Derbyshire, England, where Jane Austen's Mr Darcy came from. I divide my time between taking pictures of my cats and writing. When not plotting how to kill people (for the books, of course!) I can often be found trawling the aisles of my local grocery stores in pursuit of everyday items with lethal potential. Other interests include literary studies, history, cats, cooking, gardening, family tree research and chatting on Facebook. I self-published my first book, Criss Cross, book one of the Friendship can be Murder trilogy, in 2013 and the follow-up, Cross Check in 2014. The third book of the Friendship can be Murder trilogy, Check Mate, appeared in February 2016. The Dottie Manderson mystery series are set in Britain in the 1930s. Dottie is a young woman with a nose for trouble and an enquiring mind. Book three, a novella called Scotch Mist, is due out in the late spring/early summer of 2018, then book four, a full-length novel, called The Last Perfect Summer of Richard Dawlish, will appear in the autumn/winter of 2018.

This very clean, sweet book may be targeted to YA which then makes the writing style better explained. From an adult viewpoint, cozy goes a little too far.
Dottie, the main character of the story is always getting herself in a pickel, whether it's her own fault or that fate steps in to spoil the day. Her mother is a woman who keeps the status quo of the day at the forfront of her thoughts no matter what. You could say she's a little bit of a snob. And her husband hides behind a newspaper, but he does share his opinion once in awhile.
There are too many characters to mention. But the storyline is jam packed with adventure, a little danger, and humor thrown in to round out the story. I highly recommend this book. I am hooked.
