New Guernsey kid (writer) on the block: Lara Dearman

It is truth universally acknowledged that writers support other writers…

And if they’re from the same rock it’s a cert… In fact I’ve just spent the last five minutes stalking Lara to see if I recognise her from her photos – Guernsey is so small we all know someone who knows someone. Rest assured, Lara, you’re a stranger and I’m too busy to stalk anyone unless they have chocolate… 

Lara has recently had her debut published by Trapeze, a new imprint of Orion (one of my favourite houses on NetGalley). I haven’t read it yet but it’s on my TBR pile, which is leaning like Pisa. Here’s the blurb and links x

Book blurb

The six drowned girls stared up at them from the photographs. All young. All attractive. All dead. ‘It is a lot of dead girls. And it’s a very small island.’

Following a traumatic incident in London, Jennifer Dorey has returned to her childhood home in Guernsey, taking a job as a reporter at the local newspaper.After the discovery of a drowned woman on a beach, she uncovers a pattern of similar deaths that have taken place over the past fifty years.Together with DCI Michael Gilbert, an officer on the verge of retirement, they follow a dark trail of island myths and folklore to ‘Fritz’, the illegitimate son of a Nazi soldier. His work, painstakingly executed, has so far gone undetected. But with his identity about to be uncovered, the killer now has Jennifer in his sights.
