AND THE EARTH MOVED - a guest post by Zanna Mackenzie
Once again I have the pleasure of welcoming fellow-scribe Zanna Mackenzie to my blog. Zanna has just released the first in a series of cosy crime novels.
I had the pleasure of reading a preview copy of And The Earth Moved - and it did not disappoint. If you like your mystery novels spiced up with a little romance, you will love this.
Over to you, Zanna - can you tell us a little more about the book?
When celebrities need a crime solving quickly and discreetly
they call in the specialists, the Celebrity Crimes Investigation Agency ,
otherwise known as the CCIA…
One desperate phone call is all it takes to turn Amber’s day
from boring to completely crazy.
The call? Her old university boyfriend Ennis, now a
heartthrob actor, begs for Amber’s help. His brother Joel is dead, and Ennis has to discover the truth
about his death before the world’s media hear about it and batter his door down
The CCIA has already assigned its top agent, Charlie Huxton,
to the case.
Amber’s mission? Ennis
doesn’t trust a stranger to keep quiet, so he pleads with Amber to shadow and
help Charlie throughout the investigation. Ennis was her first love and she
still has a soft spot for him – how can she refuse?
Scarily out of her depth Amber knows she needs to somehow
get Charlie on side with her involvement in the case – and fast. But once she's plunged into the world of crime, Amber finds herself battling something
darker and far more dangerous than she’d imagined – and it has nothing to do
with the equally scary chemistry fizzing between her and Charlie.
Will Charlie agree to work with her to find out how and why
Can she help uncover the truth before word gets out and an
already distraught Ennis is hounded by story-hungry journalists?
Just as importantly, can she keep her sanity and still be
alive when the mystery is finally solved?
