Publisher Description

It’s an invitation that will change everything…

It’s 1923 and in a decade that promises excitement and liberation, Pearl Glenham and her father are invited to a mysterious country house party on the Dorset coast, by a total stranger.

Her father claims not to have any prior association with Highcliffe House, but upon arrival, it is apparent that he has a shared history with several of the guests, although he won’t admit it. Belatedly discovering that her father was blackmailed into attending, Pearl’s worries are compounded when their host fails to arrive…

Intimidated by everyone at the party, she escapes to the nearby cove and stumbles upon a mysterious mercury clock hidden in a cave. This strange encounter sets in motion a series of events that will culminate in an horrific house fire, claiming the lives of all the guests, including Pearl herself.

But then Pearl wakes up back in the cave, seemingly destined never to live past midnight. She can repeat the day. But can she change its outcome?

A completely addictive and unforgettable 1920s mystery – with a timeslip twist – perfect for fans of Daphne du Maurier, Agatha Christie, and Lucinda Riley.

Readers are loving At the Stroke of Midnight:

‘So many things to love about this book – stunning setting, fabulous characters, a murder mystery to solve, and all under a spellbinding timeslip twist. Absolutely devoured it.’ Jessica Redland, author ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘A fantastic read!… The puzzle, once solved, is staggering… Reminded me of Poirot… I’d recommend this to anyone who loves historical fiction with a mystery and a dash of the unexplainable thrown in. Brilliant imagination!!!’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘And Then There Were None meets Groundhog Day… The author does a great job of making you feel as if you’re in the 1920s; it’s a clever Christie-like whodunnit (and I didn’t guess!) but it’s more than that. It’s a coming-of-age story… a lovely romance; and magical realism with the timeloop… Thoroughly good.’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘So many twists and surprises, it was a thrilling experience trying to work out what was going on and who was responsible for the murders. Definitely a little Agatha Christie like, with a sprinkling of Rebecca for good measure.’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘A sumptuous, suspenseful and very satisfying read… Skilfully weaves drama, glamour, comedy, romance and coming of age in a time-twisty tale of suspense… Atmospheric… rich in period detail… perfectly paced.’ Nancy Peach, bestselling author ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘To sum this book up in one word... Absobloodymazing!!!… I am in love with the way [the author] writes historical fiction, timeslips, mysteries and romance all in one book. She really is clever, the way she hides her clues throughout the book and gives her readers so many ‘aha’ moments throughout. The sheer amount of twists leaves you feeling seasick in the best possible way.’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘What a creative fascinating story!… A unique intriguing mystery set in 1923 with a fascinating time loop… Reminded me of an Agatha Christie… Kept me intrigued from start to finish… I loved it.’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘Kept me reading late into the night… Extraordinary “whodunnit” set in a different era… Reminded me of the film Groundhog Day… I loved this book.’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
