Beetiful designed the book cover for Mistletoe Murder, a Christmas cozy mystery book by Mona Marple.
When a local millionaire eccentric dies, the whole of Candy Cane Hollow are crying into their mince pies.
But when the Will is read, it turns out that the whole estate has been left not to the man’s family, but to an elf who claims she didn’t know him at all.
With that shock discovery, it’s time to see how money really does change people… and not everyone will survive the fall out.
Holly finds herself caught up in another murder, but she already has enough on her plate. Her sister is visiting her new, festive home for the first time, and together they will sort the final plans for the Winter Ball.
Oh, and is she imagining things, or is her dimpled dish of a boyfriend acting suspiciously?
Mistletoe Murder is the fourth book in Mona Marple’s Christmas Mysteries series. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and prepare for a festive and fun clean mystery read.
ONE PENNY A STORY, I called across the playground.
Entirely unusual, given how shy I was (and still am), for me to be shouting anything across a playground.
But there I was, a double-sided sheet of narrow ruled paper (I've always been kind of particular about the paper I like. Back then, narrow ruled. Now, grid.) in my hand, selling stories I hadn't yet wrote.
Every line featured a different title. I'd lay on my bed the night before thinking of them all, probably singing along to Boyzone songs as I did [hey, don't judge... I see you over there like you never thought you were destined to marry a boy band singer...].
My school friends could buy a Mona original for one penny. One penny!
They'd pick the title they liked, hand over their sweaty penny, and I'd write the story for them.
And I've never grown out of writing stories.
Now, I write cozy mystery stories from my den in the Peak District, and when I'm not writing them, I'm reading them.
