5.0 out of 5 stars A Cozy And Fun Read, February 19, 2013 By L.I. LINDA (LI NY)

A great surprise, March 14, 2013 By Bookworm -this book was a wonderful surprise. Lots of charming characters that you will fall in love with--whether they are good guys or bad. The setting is fabulous--you feel right at home in the beautiful homes and their gorgeous surroundings in England. This is a terrific page-turner that you won't be able to put down.

A cozy read, February 18, 2013 - By Tricia (Los Gatos, CA) - I can't resist a baffling murder on a foggy night on an English estate in the 1940's. Add a little romance, a handsome ex-inspector with a curious past, a spunky young lady looking for clues and a mansion full of suspects. It was an enjoyable read and I hope Jeremy and Rachel will have more mysteries to solve in the future.

Fantastic and well written, 19 Jan 2013 -By Forensic 321 (Amazon UK)- This is one of the better murder mysteries I have read in a while. I thoroughly enjoyed the picturesque narration.

Great English manor house mystery!!, February 16, 2013 By David Malmberg - Really enjoyed it! Reminded me of Agatha Christie at her best.

Enjoyable Christie like caper. 18 Jan 2013 By G Moore "Neferankh" (Edinburgh, Scotland) (Amazon UK) - Highly enjoyable country house murder. Believable characters and plenty of plot twists and turns.

Murder in the English countryside, February 12, 2013 By Mo - This was just pure fun. The mysterious murder was eventually solved, with many twists and turns. I enjoyed reading this one. The author took you through the villages and small towns, and through the murder, too. I was sad it was over, and that is how I like to feel about a book.

A Great First Novel, January 27, 2013 By Anita Nelam - If you enjoy the more modern "British Cozy" I encourage you to select this book.

The Reivers (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: *** Special introductory price: 99c till 3rd April ***

Mary Queen of Scots is on the throne, and the frontier between England and Scotland is a powder-keg

More interested in raiding into Scotland with the rest of her clan than womanly pursuits like embroidery or finding a husband, Alexandra Graham is a feisty English heiress who rides and fights as well as any man. But when a daring rescue goes wrong, she ends up in the dungeons of Scotland's most forbidding castle, prisoner of the notorious Earl of Bothwell and at the mercy of the queen's justice.

As deputy warden responsible for keeping the law on the queen's borderland, Michael Cranstoun is a Scottish laird with a reputation for fair-mindedness and the looks of a viking warrior. But when he meets the beguiling Alexandra, both his life and his honour are at risk - not to mention his affections.

With more than just the border separating them, Alex and Michael are on opposite sides of an ancient divide, and destined for different paths. But a shared love for horses draws them together and kindles a passion that respects no boundaries, endangering more than just their hearts...

Please note:
  • This novel was written by a Scottish author, and therefore uses British English spelling and grammar :)
  • This is a complete story with a HEA - no cliffhangers!
  • However, if you enjoy the story, read more of Mary Queen of Scots and the intrigues of her court in A Love Beyond,


Drawing close to the banks of the Liddel Water where he was to meet Alexandra, Michael halted his horse in the cover of some trees, entranced once again by the sight of the girl on her black stallion.

She has come! He breathed a sigh of relief. After all his doubts and worries, here she was once more, still wearing her boyish cap and rough clothes, the stallion displaying his quality and presence, even at a distance.

Today, however, the pair looked less like dancers and more like warriors about to charge into battle, with a pent-up energy that pervaded every move. It was a spellbinding sight, more so now that he knew that those long legs which wrapped so lithely around the horse's sides belonged to a rather lovely lass, rather than a scruffy youth.

And she's alone. He didn't know whether to feel pleased or offended by that. For the lack of an escort implied that she didn't see him as a manly threat to her propriety. But it also meant that it would be easier for them to talk without hindrance.

With a smile playing on his lips, he pushed his horse forward - just as Alexandra turned her mount up the valley and raced off at a flat-out gallop.

For a heartbeat, Michael hesitated - and then he too was flying up the river meadow, chasing after this elusive woman who sat a horse better than any man he'd ever known.

Her horse is fast, too.

Mist, Michael's poor beast, had already travelled sixteen miles that morning since leaving the lodging at Gretna, and was carrying a heavier load. It was an unequal race. I may have to content myself with catching her up once she stops. For the black stallion ran as if the very hounds of hell were chasing him, his tail streaming behind him like a lure and the rider on his back crouched low over his neck as if to protect herself from the wind.
