Tuesday Spotlight on The Cambridge Fellows Series and Charlie Cochrane
Today we're turning the spotlight on Charlie Cochrane and her much-loved Cambridge Fellows series.
Lessons for Sleeping Dogs is the twelfth story in the Cambridge Fellows series of romantic mysteries. You can find the full list of stories (with freebies and some rather silly additional content that I must have created in a very mad moment!) here on my blog.
People ask me how the series originated and the answer is simple; I was desperate to find some classic age style mysteries that featured a gay couple. I couldn’t, so I wrote my own!
Lessons for Sleeping Dogs
When amateur sleuth Jonty Stewart comes home with a new case to investigate, his partner Orlando Coppersmith always feels his day has been made. Although, can there be anything to solve in the apparent mercy killing of a disabled man by a doctor who then kills himself, especially when everything takes place in a locked room?
But things are never straightforward where the Cambridge fellows are concerned, so when they discover that more than one person has a motive to kill the dead men—motives linked to another double death—their wits get stretched to the breaking point.
And when the case disinters long buried memories for Jonty, memories about a promise he made and hasn’t kept, their emotions get pulled apart as well. This time, Jonty and Orlando will have to separate fact from fiction—and truth from emotion—to get to the bottom of things.
As Charlie Cochrane couldn't be trusted to do any of her jobs of choice—like managing a rugby team—she writes, with titles published by Carina, Samhain, Bold Strokes, MLR and Cheyenne.
Charlie's Cambridge Fellows Series of Edwardian romantic mysteries was instrumental in her being named Author of the Year 2009 by the review site Speak Its Name. She’s a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, Mystery People, International Thriller Writers Inc and is on the organising team for UK Meet for readers/writers of GLBT fiction. She regularly appears with The Deadly Dames.
