The publication of the latest offering from Julie Wassmer is to summer what the first cuckoo is to spring. You know hot days of lounging on deckchairs while licking ice creams and devouring good books are on the way!
Murder Fest, the sixth in the Whitstable Pearl series, does not disappoint: it has the seaside, it has an arts festival, it has visiting Germans from Whitstable’s twin town of Borken . . . and it has a brutally murdered celebrity writer! And who doesn’t love a murdered author . . . So all in all, the perfect combination for an entertaining holiday read.
And if you want to find out more about Whitstable and Pearl Nolan – or indeed, just want to take a trip down to the south coast for some seafood and views of beach huts – then do go and seek out Julie who’s out and about in Kent this month; hot on the heels of her native WhitLit Julie is appearing at an author event today at Waterstones in Folkestone. If that’s not enough notice then on the 22nd she is doing a talk at Waterstones in Canterbury, and finally, on 25th May, Julie will be signing copies at an event at Harbour Books back in Whitstable. So go and catch up with her there! Or at least, catch up with the latest instalment in the Whitstable Pearl series.
