episode was behind them, she went ahead & confirmed their acceptance.

is drawn into events which threaten to spiral out of control. When a beautiful
young actress is accidentally killed, Diana's thoughts are opposite to everyone

A second body leaves everyone reeling - this time there is no doubt. A callous
and vicious murderer is at large. Diana is fast embroiled in discovering the
hard facts, not knowing she is placing herself in great danger. Watch out

"The Seeds Of Time"
This intensely romantic yet realistic action and adventure novel spans two generations and the unimaginable gulf between the Second World War and the present.

When Englishman Richard Barker suffers a devastating loss he learns to come to terms with his grief. He is helped by two beautiful women, newly discovered quiet and smouldering American, Sorrel and the tempestuous and wilful, Miranda an old flame from long ago.

While Richard is battling with his feelings, by chance he enters into the dark, often surreal world of his dead father's past life spent during the Second World War. It is Sorrel's Grandfather, an American Air Force pilot, who contacts Richard with some intriguing news which helps Richard to his senses.

Richard lives in a world that is sometimes as tragic as A Farewell to Arms and as sensuous as The English Patient. His story and that of his father are crafted from the ruins of war and the indestructibility of love. The action is non-stop, the locations are intriguing and the characters are appealing. There is tension, romance and harrowing escapes all woven within a story that captures the imagination and keeps the reader guessing until the very end.

Billy returns home and marries his love, while Richard has to make a decision between the two beautiful women in his life. Richard discovers he is torn between love and duty.

In Sorrel he finds what he believes is his soul-mate, whereas sexy Miranda keeps Richard guessing. When Richard discovers an old war-torn photograph of a woman and two children he is shaken to the core. What was it his father did & never divulged to his wife and family? Harvest is a world where tragedy rests alongside joy. Harvest deals with harsh, cruel, & often despicable conditions - at the same time describing the indestructibility of love in past & present lives. This is a story of deep romance, bravery, survival, heartbreak and happiness, all poignantly & convincingly conveyed. Richard's compelling desire to finally lay his father's dark secrets to rest brings warmth and understanding into the two intertwined stories. All perfectly blended with non-stop action, intriguing locations, and appealing characters.

Protagonista de “Il villaggio degli assassini” è Diana Rivers, una scrittrice, attrice occasionale e detective dilettante.
In un pittoresco villaggio cipriota, un gruppo teatrale di espatriati si riunisce per discutere il prossimo spettacolo, ma quando si alza il sipario si verifica un omicidio. Un ricattatore tormenta i membri del gruppo che sono divisi da gelosie, rivalità, tensione sessuale e tradimenti.
Tutti sono alla ricerca della soluzione ai propri problemi, all’insaputa degli altri. Alcuni credono che tale soluzione sia l’omicidio. Riusciranno a trovare il ricattatore e quell’importantissimo “libriccino nero” che contiene il resoconto di tutti i loro misfatti?
Al ritrovamento di un cadavere, Diana Rivers si trasforma in detective, iniziando a compilare una lista di sospettati. Dopo che la polizia dà inizio alle indagini, uno dei sospettati viene trovato impiccato: si tratta di un altro omicidio o di un suicidio? È stato qualcun altro a impiccarlo? In seguito alla visita a casa di uno degli abitanti, viene scoperto un antico congegno utilizzato in passato dagli assassini. Che sia quella l’arma del delitto? È possibile che un assassino viva nel cuore di questo villaggio di montagna, che prima era un luogo pacifico e idillico?
Amore, odio, omicidio e drammaticità fanno parte di questo classico giallo storico. Con una lunga lista di sospettati, alcune svolte drammatiche e una strana falsa pista, il lettore viene lasciato col dubbio fino a quando non calerà il sipario.
NB. Sebbene i romanzi gialli di Diana Rivers siano una “serie”, possono essere letti in qualsiasi ordine come storie “a sé stanti”.
