Anne Allen

Author Anne Allenabout this book: Guernsey Retreat is Book 3 of The Guernsey Novels and follows the links between two people - Malcolm Roget, who's father was killed before his birth, and Louise Canning, whose mother recently died during a violent burglary. The deaths are connected, centred on stolen valuable jewels with an intriguing history of their own.

Louisa sets out to find the father she has never known, to warn him that he might be in danger. Malcolm has no idea he fathered a child and has recently opened a natural health centre and retreat in Guernsey, in the very house in which his father died.

This book is set primarily in La Folie, a gothic Victorian mansion which figured largely in my previous novel, Finding Mother, and characters from that novel and my first, Dangerous Waters, make their appearances in Guernsey Retreat. I have chosen to write romantic mysteries as I'm intrigued by secrets and how loss and tragedy affects people, a by-product of my years as a psychotherapist.

Reviews:

• "The author deftly combines mystery and romance in a tale which moves smoothly from times of sadness and loss, through periods of anger and loneliness, to revelations about the past which have life-changing effects on the main characters."

• "Anne Allen explores the subtleties of modern relationships in a compassionate way while revealing the workings of karma and choices in life. The sights, sounds smells and cuisine of Guernsey provide a vivid background to the story and make it all the richer."
