A funny, gentle cosy mystery adventure set on a tiny Greek island in the Ionian Sea, just off Ithaca, in the tradition of Agatha Christie, but with added English humour and an intriguing cast of authors and aspiring authors attending an exclusive writers’ retreat.

When Sophie Sayers joins a writers’ retreat on a secluded Greek island, she’s hoping to find inspiration and perhaps a little adventure. Away from her rural English comfort zone, she also takes stock of her relationship with her boyfriend Hector.

But scarcely has the writing course begun when bestselling romantic novelist Marina Milanese disappears on a solo excursion to an old windmill. First on the scene, Sophie is prime suspect for Marina’s murder. When a storm prevents the Greek police from landing on the island to investigate, Sophie must try to solve the crime herself – not easy, when everyone at the retreat has a motive.

As she strives to uncover the truth about Marina’s fate, Sophie arrives at a life-changing decision about her own future.

A hilarious, heartwarming, life-affirming, feel-good read which is also sometimes poignant and touching.
