About a year ago I was lucky enough to read and review The Deadline by Jackie Kabler. I thoroughly enjoyed it and you can read my review here. Imagine my excitement then when I had a message from Jackie asking if I’d mind – mind I say – if I was quoted on the front cover of her latest book, The Development. Er, no, I didn’t mind. I was thrilled and delighted.
The Development is the third book in Jackie’s Cora Baxter Mysteries series and will be published by Accent Press in May 2018. The Development is available for pre-order here.
The Development is the third instalment in the hugely popular Cora Baxter Mysteries by acclaimed broadcaster Jackie Kabler.
After a stressful week, TV reporter Cora Baxter is ready for a quiet weekend. What she isn’t counting on is witnessing the shocking death of a young woman on her way home.
Cora discovers that seventeen-year-old Leanne has been protesting against a new housing development, angering the powerful establishment. Leanne’s death is ruled a suicide but, when puzzling information comes to light, Cora decides to investigate further. She might not know what an unscrupulous businessman, a suspended police officer and hate-mail sending neighbours have to do with the case but she does know there is a news story there.
With her eccentric camera crew on hand to help, can Cora tie the strands of Leanne s case together or will other forces interfere?
