Cecilia Peartree Can people learn to leave the past behind them, and move on? Flora has tried hard to do this but her wartime past as a secret agent just won't let go of her. The spymaster she knew then seems to be pulling the strings again as an old adversary reappears in her life. Meanwhile her friendship with Oliver Quest goes through a difficult patch after a silly argument. He takes on the task of looking after a very special painting belonging to an important industrialist and she looks for a job as a typist. Soon they are both working on different aspects of the 1951 Festival of Britain, and they unexpectedly find themselves in the middle of a murder mystery. Even after a last-minute crisis in the Lion and Unicorn Pavilion is apparently resolved, they find their investigations have to continue. For a while it's as if the pieces from two jigsaw puzzles have got mixed up and will never be sorted out again.
Cecilia Peartree 'Blackberry Crumble' is a long short story about a haunted phone, a desperate café owner and her son, and a ruthless woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. In spite of the mystery of the mobile phone and the background of Linda's problems, this story is much lighter than one of the scones for which the Home Sweet Café is famous. At just over 9,000 words it is a satisfying read.
Cecilia Peartree Reunited in Death is a sequel to the quirky Crime in the Community, which is already available from Smashwords. Reunited in Death was a quarter finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award for 2011 and received the following comments in a review by Publisher's Weekly: 'An unlikely cast of endearingly eccentric characters distinguish this offbeat mystery set in Pitkirtly, an appropriately quirky town on the Scottish coast....Memorable characters, delightful word pictures -- an assistant librarian "looked like a piece of chewed string" -- and understated humor highlight a novel with real promise.'
Cecilia Peartree Can anyone ever really change? Christopher and Amaryllis ask themselves this question when a young man comes to the door of their holiday caravan one wet evening. The attempt to answer it takes them and their friends on a dangerous journey from a Pitkirtly ice-cream shop to a knitting club and then to a cattery before they reach a dangerous conclusion in an old railway yard. A Pitkirtly mystery
Cecilia Peartree Isabelle doesn't expect a summer job in the south of France to turn into a nightmare. But even before she encounters the mysterious Nathan Freelander at the wheel of a boat on the Canal du Midi, she is already fighting for survival, and after that things go from bad to worse. Is Nathan's friend Josh friend or foe? Who can she trust? This romantic suspense novel developed from an opening paragraph in the style of Mary Stewart, the well-known novelist. This paragraph was inspired by a competition run on Jan O'Hara's 'Tartitude' blog. It is a departure from Cecilia Peartree's quirky mystery writing, so don't expect to visit the east coast of Scotland or meet the usual cast of grumpy Scots, visiting Americans and Tibetan refugees. Just think of this as a holiday in the sun!
Cecilia Peartree When the Happiness Club comes to town, Maisie Sue sees it as an opportunity to rediscover romance, Jock McLean regards it with suspicion, and Jemima and Dave look forward to taking part in new activities with their friends. Amaryllis and Chief Inspector Smith go along to keep an eye on developments on their patch. As for Christopher, he misses the start of the excitement because of a prior engagement - walking the Fife Coastal Path with a figure from his past. But before anyone has had very much fun, it becomes clear that while the Happiness Club brings good times to some, to others it offers only desolation and death.
Cecilia Peartree This is the sixth novel in the Pitkirtly mystery series. What would you do if you thought you were about to lose everything you cared about most? Charlie Smith thought his career was more important to him than anything else. Amaryllis valued her freedom. Christopher valued his friends, especially Amaryllis. Neil Macrae, 'the pub landlord with no name', couldn't face the thought of losing his pub. There were others who couldn't bear to lose Neil Macrae. 'The Queen of Scots Mystery' tells all these stories and more.
Cecilia Peartree This is the seventh book in the Pitkirtly series of cosy mysteries, set in a fictitious small town on the coast of Fife. When the television programme Open Kitchen comes to town, there are various reactions from the people of Pitkirtly. Jemima is glad of the opportunity to show off her baking skills, while Amaryllis looks forward to the mayhem that could result from a 'healthy eating' procession, and Christopher is aghast when he finds his ex-wife working on the project. But none of them expect murder to be on the menu.
Cecilia Peartree This is the eighth novel in the Pitkirtly Mystery series. Through a random combination of circumstances, Jock McLean and Amaryllis find themselves playing Santa Claus and his elf respectively at the Pitkirtly Christmas Market, a blatant attempt to lure tourists away from Edinburgh. Proceedings are interrupted by a murder on Pitkirtly Island (not really an island) and by the activities of a new organisation called FOOP. A sequence of events occurs which results not only in Christopher and Amaryllis having a picnic in the Cultural Centre but in Jock McLean buying new socks for the first time in living memory.
