People’s Friend Serial Publication

Snow falls over the Cornish village of Torre, blowing along the narrow alleyways, drifting against the door of the Free Traders Inn. The village lock-up shimmers with icicles, the sign above Grubb’s pawnbrokers’ sways but doesn’t creak – George Grubb gives nothing away for free.

Wind howls across nearby Merrin Moor. There are tales of a beast sniffing through the gorse so best to keep inside by the fire.

Up on the clifftop, Torre Point lighthouse winks over a churning grey sea, keeping its secrets close. The village is awash with stories of that lighthouse, of strange men coming and going, of boats out in a storm …

Of murder.

I’m delighted to announce I have another three-part serial about to be published in The People’s Friend Magazine.

A 19th century tale, expect sinister lighthouse keepers, a pipe smoking landlady, tangled secrets, blood, murder, smugglers … and a bear.

The first part is due out this Saturday, the 2nd of November, though copies are often available a few days previous to the publication date.

    1. Thank you Sammy. I did enjoy writing this one. It has some very odd characters and a big warm heart too. If you do buy a copy, I hope you love Blossom and Tilly (my MCs) as much as I do. Thank you for your kind support x


    1. Thank you so much :). I enjoyed the atmosphere of this one and the two lead female characters. I hope to pen another mystery for them at some point πŸ™‚


      1. And Cornwall is such an atmosphereric place. I have read several mysteries set there. Plus I love that bit about Grubb’s shop sign not creaking. Brilliant


      2. It’s a great place to set a story – beautiful but still a bit wild and filled with mystery from smugglers to pagan forces! Thanks for the kind words Crispina

  1. That is so wonderful, Lynn!
    And this story has grabbed my attention, big time…Your descriptions, as ever, bring us right into the scene so we can picture it perfectly.


    1. Thank you, Joy! Nice to have another story out there. I did enjoy creating these characters and hope to develop another story including them soon. And the bear sounds scarier than he is πŸ™‚
