#CoverReveal time! “A fractured winter” by Alison Baillie

Last year I read a memorable debut novel that I really enjoyed. Alison Baillie’s novel “Sewing the shadows together” was an excellent mystery with an atmospheric Edinburgh setting. You can read my review here.

Imagine my excitement when I learned that Alison Baillie has a new novel coming out in May!

The title of her new novel is “A fractured winter“.

The blurb reads:

A missing girl.

Threatening notes.

Sinister strangers.

Olivia’s idyllic family life in a Swiss mountain village is falling apart.  She thought she’d managed to escape the past, but it’s coming back to haunt her.

Has somebody discovered her secret – why she had to leave Scotland more than ten years ago?

And what is her connection to Marie, a lonely schoolgirl in a Yorkshire seaside town, and Lucy, a student at a Scottish university?

A twisty family mystery with a dark edge, where nothing is as it seems.

I was very honoured to be granted permission for an exclusive cover reveal
and I anticipate reading this book within the next few weeks.








The cover was designed by Alison’s friend, Alexander Huwyler

Stunning…. Don’t you agree?


A Fractured Winter” will be published by Williams & Whiting in May 2018.

Though Alison Baillie was born in Yorkshire and brought up in Ilkley in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, she has always felt Scottish. Her parents were both Scottish and she studied English at the University of St Andrews and afterwards taught English at several High Schools in the Edinburgh area. She has also taught English as a Foreign Language in Switzerland, where she now lives. She loves reading crime fiction, travelling, walking in the mountains, and being with her family and friends.
