Today my guest author is... Wendy Unsworth

I am delighted to welcome back to Jaffareadstoo 

The Berriwood Series by Wendy Unsworth follows the lives of ordinary people in a pretty little backwater of the Cornish countryside. This is a place of tranquility, where everyone knows everyone and nothing much ever seems to happen. But behind closed doors the quiet idyll of rural life can harbour a darker side, one that involves deceit and lies and sometimes murder.

Dirty Work is the third title in the series; here is a little bit about it:-

Appearances can be deceptive.

Take the Duke twins. Pete lost his IT job almost two years ago; he is best known in his native village of Berriwood for his tendency to be found propped up against a bar somewhere… or under it. It has been a tough time for Caroline, Pete’s wife, but at last, it seems, he is turning his life around. 

Nathan is the success story of the family, the darling of the local amateur dramatic society who gave it all up for his high flying directorship based in London. But his wife, Marcie hates the lonely days while he works away and forgetting her birthday is the last straw.

When Nathan invites Caroline and Pete to a surprise birthday dinner for Marcie, to make amends, Caroline has her reservations. She knows if anyone is going to spoil the family party it would be Pete; he has done it plenty of times before. What she doesn’t anticipate is that her husband won't even be there and that one of the four will very soon be dead.

Dirty Work will be available for pre-order on Amazon from 15th May 2017 and published on June 16th 2017

All three books in the Berriwood series now have brand new covers
