Mystery Authors International has named Amy M. Reade as their featured author for February 2017. The time is right, because Amy has a mystery novel, The House on Candlewick Lane, hitting the shelves on February 7. Amy is a USA Today bestselling author and a recovering lawyer; she lives in southern New Jersey.
The House on Candlewick Lane is the first of The Malice Novels, a gothic suspense series set in the United Kingdom. The second book in the series, Highland Peril, will be released in the fall of 2017. Amy is currently at work on the third book. She is also the author of Secrets of Hallstead House, The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor, and House of Hanging Jade, all stand-alones. She loves reading, cooking, and traveling.
Just to whet your appetite for this delicious new mystery, here is an excerpt from The House on Candlewick Lane.
I must have fallen asleep, because I sat up with a start, not remembering where I was. But after a second it all came back to me in a rush of fear and indignation. I was sitting on the twin bed. It was hot. My hair stuck to the back of my neck and my forehead. Gray light forced its way into the room through the small window that overlooked the fields behind the house on Candlewick Lane. The rain was still falling, smearing the glass. I wondered where Neill was. I knew pounding on the door would be no use, but I had to do something. I had to try. My fists bore the bruises from my earlier futile attempts to be heard. There was nothing to do but wait to be released from this tower prison. Someone had to let me go.
They couldn’t keep me here forever
Ooh, there’s nothing like a good gothic mystery on a gray, wintry day. You’ll want to curl up in your window seat with this one for a happy afternoon.
