Hello my bookish friends and welcome to damppebbles. Today I am delighted to be taking part in the cover reveal for Anne Pettigrew’s Not the Deaths Imagined. Not the Deaths Imagined is Anne’s second novel and it will be published by Ringwood Publishing on 1st August 2020.
So before we feast our eyes on the brilliant cover, let’s find out what the book is all about:
In a leafy Glasgow suburb, Dr Beth Semple is busy juggling motherhood and full-time GP work in the 90s NHS. But her life becomes even more problematic when she notices some odd deaths in her neighbourhood. Though Beth believes the stories don’t add up, the authorities remain stubbornly unconvinced.
Soon, Beth’s professional reputation is challenged. There follows a chilling campaign of harassment and she finds her professional reputation – and family – are put at risk.
Is a charming local GP actually a serial killer? Can Beth piece together the jigsaw of perplexing fatalities and perhaps save lives? And as events accelerate towards a dramatic conclusion, will the police intervene in time?
From the author of Not the Life Imagined, this slow-burning tartan noir novel from a Bloody Scotland Crime Spotlight author follows Beth on another quest for justice. Reflecting Pettigrew’s own medical expertise, Not The Deaths Imagined re-affirms the benefits of growing up in a loving family and the need for friends in hard times, while offering insight into the twisted development of a psychopathic mind.
Doesn’t that sound AMAZING?! I love it.
And now for the gorgeous cover…..
How fantastic is that?! I love the colours – it’s such an eye-catching cover. 😍
