It began like any normal day in Cyprus…except it wasn’t…the body of a woman brutally murdered and discovered in a shallow grave changes all that.
It is only days later when amateur sleuth, Diana Rivers and old flame, Chief Superintendent Adam Lovell discover a second female victim…only this time the discovery is even more chilling and shocks the island inhabitants.
Joining forces with local policeman, Sergeant Yiannis Loukiades, the three embark on a journey which takes them to the fringes of humanity. Disturbing secrets are unearthed. They are on the hunt for killers who will stop at nothing in their hunt for one vital woman.
As the bodies mount up, the detectives ask themselves one question. What is the reason for the women’s deaths and their horrific mutilations?
With the investigation quickly gathering momentum, Diana finds herself exposed to great danger…in the sights of a lethal individual who’ll put a stop to her meddling. Each move could be deadly… vicious in its outcome…can the team bring a halt to this brutal trade?

“The Assassins’ Village (Diana Rivers #1)” by Faith Mortimer is a terrific murder mystery in the exotic location of Cyprus. It opens with the murder of what we learn was a terrible human being before taking us into the very colourful community of theatre players. If you ever have played in an amateur group you will appreciate the writing that portrays the scene just perfectly. The book also contains some witty references to theatre and literature and throws a large array of suspects at us. The village itself has a reputation and adds spice to this wonderful mystery. The plot itself is well crafted and kept me guessing until the very end. A very accomplished and hugely enjoyable first in a promising series.
“A Very French Affair” by Faith Mortimer is a beautiful and tender contemporary romance set in St. Tropez where she falls head over heels for the attractive yet married Jean-Paul.
A love affair ensues with plenty of complications and moral and other influences coming into play that demand considerations.
Beautifully written with heart and soul this is not just your average romance, it feels like a thoughtful character study of the pair. Fleshed out with great scenery and descriptive details, good plotting and pacing this is a surprisingly captivating and rewarding read.
