A Poisonous Plot
In 1358, over a century after its foundation in Cambridge, the college of Michaelhouse is facing a serious shortfall of funds and competition from upstarts rivals such as Zachary Hostel. Their problems are made no easier by the hostility of the town’s inhabitants. This simmering tension threatens to break into violence when a well-known tradesman is found dead in one of the colleges. Matthew Bartholomew knows he was poisoned but cannot identify the substance, never mind the killer. He also worries that other illnesses and deaths may have been caused by the effluent from his sister’s dye works. Torn between loyalties to his kin and to his college, he fears the truth may destroy both his personal and professional life.

Together they could take on the world . . .
Headmaster Theodore Quinn has lived in Liverpool since coming over from America to fight for Britain in the 1940s. Over ten years later he is harbouring two secrets and scars that are both physical and emotional. Where women are concerned, he and his secrets are a closed shop, until Tia Bellamy walks into his life. Tia cuts through Theo’s reserve, and the first of his secrets is shared with her. The pair grow close to the residents of the Lady Streets, a tight community that looks after its own, and in particular to Maggie Stone and her little granddaughter Rosie. Then Theo reveals his second secret, and everything in their life begins to change . . .
