Remedy Rumstry never could resist a damsel in distress. He couldn’t have known that Rachel Porter was unlike any other client who had graced his office before. He soon finds that dark secrets hide behind the twitching curtains of the quiet villages buried in the English countryside. When the long lost treasure resurfaced, he knew he was in for a very bumpy ride. Unfortunately for Remedy, things get very messy when the original owners want their jewels back…

About the author

Carole Tempest

Oh god not another Bio. I'm boring I spend all my days playing with imaginary people. I act my shoe size, and when quizzed I come out as a thirteen year old. I don't think in straight lines and I can remember Live aid when it was Live. (there's the clue... I'm not 13.) Long live superheroes.
