Book Launch-Maid of Oaklands Manor

I am delighted to feature a novel being launched today which I am reading at the moment - and loving it!
Terri Nixon's debut novel published by Piatkus gives Downton Abbey a run for it's money, and as she explains on her blog, she thought of it first so Julian Fellowes must be following her!
I have also reviewed it at The Historical Novel Review Blog today as well 

 

Blurb: 

1912: A chance meeting between scullery maid Lizzy Parker and heiress Evie Creswell leads to more than an enduring friendship, and a new job for Lizzy; it draws her into a world of privilege and intrigue, and delivers her into the loving arms of a killer.

When Lizzy meets Jack Carlisle, a charismatic friend of the Creswell family, she finds herself drawn to him despite the rumour that he had been involved in the death of Evie's father. She senses her feelings are reciprocated, but as she finds herself pulled deeper into the dangerous world Jack inhabits she must decide if he can be trusted with the life of a friend and, ultimately, if he is worth the risk to her own.


Mini Bio: 

Terri was born in the ancient maritime city of Plymouth, England in 1965. At the age of 9 she moved with her family to Cornwall, to a small village on the edge of Bodmin Moor, where she discovered a love of writing that has stayed with her ever since. She also discovered apple-scrumping, and how to jump out of a hayloft without breaking any bones, but no-one’s ever offered to pay her for doing those.
She now lives in Plymouth with her youngest son, and works in the Faculty of Arts at Plymouth University, where she is constantly amazed by the number of students who don’t possess pens.
