I’ve been all over social media with it, but did I blog? Silly silly me! So happy to have The Mangrove Legacy out. Thanks to Adele and the team at Fox Spirit, and to the fabulous Stephanie Johnson for cover art to DIE for! Seriously, how fabulous is that art?! Here’s what my publisher writes:
We are delighted, this Christmas day to announce the re release of a book I reviewed some years ago. It’s always a delight to get a book I enjoyed back out into print/devices so other people can enjoy it, and this one is really fun.
The Mangrove Legacy by Kit Marlowe, with cover art by the fabulous S.L. Johnson closes out a 2020 that has been strange and challenging at best, for all of us. It has not however, lacked in good books to read.
Gothic castles, highwaymen, ghosts, pirates — and a surprising variety of cheeses!
The adventure begins in the middle of Lord Mangrove’s funeral cortege, when cousins Alice and Lizzie are spirited away by masked riders. Next they’re sold to nefarious seamen-then captured by pirates, until they’re lost at sea without so much as an improving book to read! The two intrepid young women discover romance, heartache, fisticuffs, and the vital importance of pockets.
Heartily recommended to anyone who has a sense of humour, even if comedy, gothic and romance are three genres they firmly shun under normal circumstances. ~ Un:Bound
