The Cast Aways of Harewood HallKaren Herbert
With a loveable cast of characters inspired by Karen Herbert's work in aged care, this gentle cosy crime novel is described by the West Australian as 'a charming and comforting read'. Josh is a sweet, well-meaning university student working part-time in aged care with a secret hidden in the retirement village basement - two research mice that he stole from a campus laboratory. What starts as a kind gesture sets off a chain reaction of mishaps with the worst one of all, a potential outbreak of a deadly disease. Enter a curious cat, a devilish dog, the arrival of some mysterious packing boxes and a strange spike in the village's water bill, and watch as the residents of Harewood Hall band together to solve the series of curious incidents using their wits, a lifetime of experiences and a spreadsheet or two. The Cast Aways of Harewood Hall is the perfect mystery novel to curl up with.
