Fake it ‘til you make it.
It’s not the most conventional mantra for an antiques dealer, but Angel Drake is on a learning curve. Fair to say, once you’ve been arrested, the only way is up.
Inheriting The Antiques Emporium from her Aunt gave Angel an idyllic new start, but too little experience meant big mistakes. A foolhardy deal has landed her slap-bang in the middle of the biggest string of antiques robberies the country’s ever seen. Now the dream’s becoming a nightmare.
The tranquil English village of Pook Wallop is shaken, and with Angel at the tremor’s epicentre, a handful of intrigued residents soon become her new best friends: Hester Anzak (opinionated pensioner, curiously fond of party food); Nick Rivo (fellow antique dealer, far too fond of himself if you ask Hester), and Robert Cornell (local gentry, exceedingly fond of Angel) all pitch in to help and hinder.
Angel needs answers, but asking the questions is putting her life in danger.
Who’s getting away with the nation’s treasures?
Can she clear her name, before the dirt really sticks? And....
Where is Hester finding all these vol-au-vents?
Hold on tight for the rollercoaster to the truth with Angel Drake is Going Solo. Listen now!
