I’ve got some exciting news, Murder Most Unladylike fans: Daisy and Hazel’s adventures won’t be over any time soon!
I’m currently working hard on their fifth mystery, to be published in October this year – but Hazel and Daisy won’t be hanging up their deerstalkers at the end of it. Instead, I can promise you that they will have at least TWO MORE investigations to solve.
If you live in the UK or Ireland, Murder Most Unladylike 6 and 7 will be coming your way in 2017/18. I’ve signed the contract with my UK publishers, Penguin Random House, and I’m absolutely delighted to be working with them again. They have done wonders with the series, and I know what a lucky author I am to have such a marvellous publishing team supporting me.
Of course, this is all a long way off – I have to finish book 5 first! But I’m so glad that I know what’s next, and really pleased that I don’t have to stop writing about my detectives any time soon.
And if you’re looking for more from the world of Murder Most Unladylike, may I remind you that Daisy & Hazel’s fourth full-length book, Jolly Foul Play, will be hitting UK stores on the 24th of this month? You can pre-order it now, and you definitely should. On Friday I got to see the very first finished copies of it, and it looks gorgeous. It’s brighter than the sun!
