A Royal Mess
A prequel to Pompomberry House
Candice spends three months crafting a fascinator from a dead peacock. Stacey spends a month’s wages on an Egyptian silk shrug.
In Little Nobbins-on-Sea, two hundred patriots put their lives on hold in order to watch Prince William get married on the television.
However, the royal wedding is not the only big event in Little Nobbins that afternoon – of even more importance is the village best-dressed competition.
As the day continues, more and more women ‘disappear’. Candice gets suspicious but when she finds Stacey’s lifeless arm peeping out of a sanitary bin, she is faced with an impossible decision – cover up the murder or risk the contest being cancelled altogether.
