We are pleased to announce the up-coming release of Christmas in Newfoundland: Memories and Mysteries, a collection of short stories and mysteries from the award-winning author of the Sgt. Windflower Mysteries.
Now available in Kindle on Amazon,com and soon available across Canada in paperback on Indigo/Chapters
“Christmas in Newfoundland is a special time. In the depths of long winter nights memories are made and stories are told. Of Christmas by candlelight and horse and buggy rides to church. Of shopping on Water Street in St. John’s before malls and the Internet. In simpler times an orange and a few Christmas chocolates along with one special toy made every child’s eyes widen in delight.
In later years Sgt. Windflower came to work and then to stay in the quiet town of Grand Bank by the Atlantic Ocean where the salt air froze in the wind and the Mounties were welcomed to warm themselves by every fire. As everyone else slept through the night they kept the community safe and unraveled the mysteries that could only come from a special Christmas in Newfoundland.
Come and warm yourself by the fire and hear their stories. Some memories and some mysteries. Enjoy some holiday time with Sgt. Windflower and all the familiar characters that you’ve come to know and love. Good food, good friends and always another chair at the table.”
New Book Coming Soon
Fire, Fog and Water is in the final proofing process and should be in stores in October. Book 8 in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery series sees Sergeant Winston Windflower and his trusty crew at the Grand Bank detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police with more than a few mysteries on their hands. Windflower suspects that the three cases—a homicide, a near-homicide and a fire on Coronation Street—are somehow connected, but how is proving difficult to determine, especially now that he must battle his unusually cranky mood, the never-ending winter that has gripped the coastal region of Newfoundland and his new, power-hungry boss.
In Fire, Fog and Water, Bony Blythe Award winner Mike Martin is true to form, retaining the light crime genre for which he is known while delving into the most perplexing social issues of our time, including mental health, addictions and workplace harassment. Windflower must not only solve the drug-and-death crimes that threaten the otherwise tranquil lives of Grand Bank’s residents, he must resolve his own internal conflicts before they consume him as surely as the blaze that engulfed the house on Coronation Street.
