Posted in A to Z challenge, Heirlooms and Heiresses, Private Investigators, The Blackleaf Agency

H is for … Heirlooms & Heiresses

That title trips off the tongue, doesn’t it? ­čÖé

Heirlooms & Heiresses is the next in my Blackleaf Agency series, and the very first ‘serious’ case as well as a personal mission for my new sleuths, Raven & Fern.

Case 1 – The heirloom

A missing painting. But the thief is soon revealed. however, returning the picture is not so easy. Provenance of ‘The Stolen Countess’ is already an issue and as siblings fight over ownership, disputing their grandfather’s will, Raven and Fern trace┬áthe painting’s journey across Europe during WWII.

Case 2 – The heiress

A ‘kidnapped’ baby. A friend in need. But can they claim kidnap when the child is in her father’s arms? This case sees the private investigators at loggerheads as friendships are tested, loyalties are questioned and emotions run high.

Can The Blackleaf Agency solve these cases? Managing two cases at once is a big ask. Especially for a new company and two inexperienced  operators. Is this business doomed before it even has really started?

Heirlooms & Heiresses will either make or break the Agency. Talk about being thrown in at the deep end!

Dreams can come true and mine was to live in Spain forever and ever .... ´╗┐ Well, after studying languages many years ago I became totally enamoured with all things Spanish, I finally made the big move for a more 'relaxed' lifestyle in 2003. ´╗┐ Since then, I have been teaching Spanish to Ex-pats and translating. Also, I trained as a Community Manager (Social Media) so that I have a genuine excuse to be on Facebook, Twitter and the Internet for hours on end, but then I started to write. My first attempt was for NaNo 2012 with 'The Nasrid Charm' (a story set in Spain and the Afterlife.) Like most first drafts, this is in need of serious revision and has been placed on the backburner, while I pursue my mystery stories. I'll get back to it - one day :) ´╗┐
