Detectives, I’m thrilled to say that the wait is finally over. You’ve made your guesses (and a lot of them were right – well done if you worked it out) and I can now exclusively reveal that Book 8’s cover is going to be…
I’m absolutely thrilled. I think it looks beautiful – so summery and warm – and it’s going to complement the other covers so beautifully.
From the blurb:
Daisy and Hazel are finally back at Deepdean, and the school is preparing for a most exciting event: the fiftieth Anniversary.
Plans for a weekend of celebrations are in full swing. But all is not well, for in the detectives’ long absence, Deepdean has changed. Daisy has lost her crown to a fascinating new girl – and many of the Detective Society’s old allies are now their sworn enemies.
Then the girls witness a shocking incident in the woods close by – a crime that they’re sure is linked to the Anniversary. As parents descend upon Deepdean, decades-old grudges, rivalries and secrets begin to surface, and soon Deepdean’s future is at stake.
Can the girls solve the case – and save their home?
It’s important to say that this cover is not finished! It’s just a holding image – Daisy and Hazel won’t look quite like this on the final cover, and there will be lots more lovely details – you’re going to have to wait a few months more for the complete cover, which is being designed by my wonderful illustrator Nina Tara, as always. We’ll be revealing BOTH the cover and the title later this spring … so start thinking about what Book 8’s title might be now …
Book 8 will be released on the 8th August – and you can pre-order it now from Amazon, Waterstones, Easons, Blackwell’s, WH Smiths and lots of other retailers. You can also visit your local independent bookshop and order it from them – and if you do have an independent bookshop near you, that’s a great thing to do.
Book 8 is definitely on the way …
