We are beyond excited to announce that Bookouture have signed up twelve titles from cosy crime writer, Betty Rowlands. First published over twenty years ago, the Melissa Craig Mysteries remain a classic of the genre. We are thrilled to be able to introduce these utterly charming, page-turning murder mysteries to a new audience.
Murder at Hawthorn Cottage, the first book in this absolutely unputdownable series, will publish in August, with the next eleven books to following monthly intervals.
Commissioning Editor, Jessie Botterill says,
This is such an amazing opportunity to breathe new life into a much-loved series. I know readers are going to be hooked the moment they meet Melissa Craig, so it’s brilliant to be able to publish all the titles in quick succession.
Rolands’ agent, Julian Alexander at Lucas, Alexander, Whitley says,
We are delighted that Bookouture will be republishing Betty Rowlands’ charming and atmospheric Cotswold crime series.
Do join us later this afternoon when we’ll be revealing the cover of Murder at Hawthorn Cottage. We can’t wait to share it with you! And we’ll be celebrating both the signing and the cover reveal as always over on Facebook and Twitter.
