By Penelope Parish
From Peg Cochran’s Open Book Series
Hi! We haven’t met yet. I’m Penelope Parish and I’ll be appearing in Peg Cochran’s (writing as Margaret Loudon) new series—The Open Book Mysteries. The first book will be Murder in the Margins.
I’ve written a Gothic novel, and much to my surprise, it hit the bestseller list! Which is all fine and dandy, but now my publisher wants me to follow it up with another hit and I’m totally (and I mean totally) blocked.
So…I’ve taken a writer in residence position at the Open Book bookstore in Upper Chumley-on-Stoke, England. The town is all agog because the red-headed Duke of Upper Chumley-on_Stoke has become engaged to an American romance novelist. Horrors!
So when murder ensues, poor Charlotte Davenport becomes the first suspect. And she begs me, a fellow American, to help her prove her innocence. I’m going to do my best to be of service always assuming I don’t get myself killed first by driving down the wrong side of the street!
Look for Murder in the Margins sometime next fall!
