The first of Caron's diary-based, hitchcockesque trilogy, Criss Cross (Posh Hits Mysteries) was published in 2013, with the second, Cross Check, appearing in 2014. The third and final volume, Check Mate, came out in February 2016. These are murders 'not so mysterious' as, rather like Columbo, you see who did it and wonder how they will get away with it. The main character, Cressida, has been described in one five-star review as 'completely without morals...but you find yourself wishing her every success'.
A new cozy mystery series set in 1930s London is underway. and will feature Dottie Manderson, a young woman with a habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, much to the annoyance of her mother and the delight of her sister. Dottie makes her debut in the novel Night and Day, due out in the Fall of 2016, with sequels The Mantle of God and The Last Perfect Summer of Richard Dawlish appearing during 2016 and 2017.
Other works include a short story collection, The Commuter's Friend available now as ebook or print book, and stand-alone novels Easy Living and The Refuge coming in 2016 and 2017.

Now this a tremendous read, the heroine is completely without morals when it comes to planning the death of her mother in law, the husband of her best friend and anyone else who upsets her. The story is told through the diary of this spoilt rich chick who puts into action and words what I am sure many a gal thinks privately, with the ensuing chaotic results. You really should not like her, but you find yourself wishing her every success in her increasingly bizarre schemes and personal entanglements. It is written with panache and flows along dragging you into her world with ease. A most enjoyable book.
