The Curious Case of Maggie Macbeth
Sometimes you have to take the law into your own hands...
After losing her high-powered job in Hong Kong, forty-something widow and lawyer, Maggie Macbeth, turns up on the doorstep of her old sidekick, Cath, in the sleepy Peak District village of Archdale.
A fish out of water, Maggie comes into conflict with everyone and everything - especially Cath's awful best friend, Tiggy - and rock bottom is just around the corner. But it turns out Maggie isn't the only one in trouble. When a crisis hits the local community, Maggie has a choice: to give up on life, or go back to her legal roots and fight for justice. But can she save the day as well as herself?
This laugh-out loud debut novel shows that no battle is too big when you've got friends on your side.
