Now writing as Matilda Adler


The terms of Sebastian Ferver's Will were that his niece, Amelia would inherit everything, his townhouse in Belgravia, his yacht in Cannes, and best of all, the beautiful Mediterranean Island of El Pedrusco, which he had called home for the last 20 years of his life. She'd get it all if – and it was a spectacularly big IF – she could build a thirty-room luxury hotel on the island, and open its doors with a grand gala opening, by the first anniversary of his death.


After months of backbreaking hard work, and with Uncle Seb’s one-year deadline looming large, the celebrity guests dock at the island’s rickety old jetty, ready for the pre-opening publicity junket, and in that instant, Amelia’s smooth sailing turns to stormy seas when the mysterious stranger who had been all but shipwrecked on her doorstep just a month before turns up dead.

Can Amelia solve his murder before she is forced to cancel the gala opening and lose everything?
