When Bella Black arrives in a sleepy Wiltshire village, it seems like the perfect place for a new start. A lovely home, exciting job and an attractive colleague or two to take her mind off her recent divorce. When people start disappearing, she realises she holds the key to a mystery bigger than she could have ever imagined. Who is really pulling the strings at the secretive OAK Institute? Can anyone be trusted? Will Bella make the right choices before it’s too late?

Bridget Jones meets the Adjustment Bureau with an injection of Midsomer Murders.

About the author:

Heather Barnett gained a degree in English and French from the University of Leeds and has written ever since: from copywriting to stand-up comedy and sketches. She is now focusing on writing novels. Heather’s influences span Jane Austen and Douglas Adams at one end of the alphabet through to PG Wodehouse at the other. 

Heather’s debut novel, Acts of Kindness, is an uplifting, light-hearted mystery. It was inspired by witnessing commuters helping a woman who’d fallen down the stairs at Paddington station; intermingled with wondering what was behind some grand stone gateposts that she used to drive past in Wiltshire. 

Her second novel, Lord Seeks Wife, is a romantic comedy and will be published summer 2021.

Aside from writing, Heather’s interests are classic literature, cats and comedy. 

Heather is head of marketing at an agency near Oxford and lives by the river Kennet in Berkshire.

I can’t wait to read this new female sleuth mystery!  I do love discovering debut authors. 

All the best, Emma
