Saturday Signing – Come and Meet author Jackie West

April 20 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Come and meet author Jackie West and pick up a signed copy of her book – Shade of Violet.

Violet Bellamy is surprised to find herself a ghost because, as a rational person, she doesn’t believe in them. After a life of timid conformity, she now wants influence. She also wants to complicate the lives of people with empty charm and unshakeable self-belief, like her local MP and rising star minister, Maximus Biggs-Dickson.

And care manager Verena Crookham, a ruthless seductress who will despatch her sweet-natured stepson to keep their big house for herself. A Back to Great Britannia campaign has been thrust upon the British, to the alarm of those on the other side of the Channel. There, in Belgium specifically, a beautiful journalist is writing an article: Integrity and Power – Impossible Bedfellows? She has Minister Biggs-Dickson in her sights as an interesting subject for research.

Events align and it will take the interference of someone with nothing to lose to bring them all to a head. This fast-paced quirky mystery takes a wry swipe at characters with dangerous charisma.

Jackie West grew up in rural Warwickshire and Coventry and has mainly worked in publications for non-profit organisations. This is her first novel.
