Kurzbeschreibung

James Stirling, ambitious travel journalist, returns to London from the Far East. His future looks promising with a TV contract lined up. But endeavours to re-kindle his love affair with ex girlfriend, Ellie, are failing. When he becomes implicated in a murder, things go even more awry.

Fran Walker is riding high. Successful interior designer and presenter of her own reality TV show, she has always harboured a secret passion for James. As Ellie’s best friend, this causes complications. During the murder investigation, James stays with Fran and romance develops, but their newfound happiness is soon threatened. Beautician, and dieting fanatic, Ellie Mathews, is an enigma. What is drawing her away from her beloved London to Dorset? Can true love triumph, and will dark secrets and an elusive killer ultimately be exposed?

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Trained in fashion design at London’s Ealing Art School, Jan first began working for the House of Worth in Mayfair, London in 1958. She then moved on to wholesale fashion as the designer’s assistant for Slimma. Marriage to an army officer in 1961 took her to Germany for three fascinating years. Later, back in civilian life they moved to Singapore; “another amazing experience”, she says, which has proved valuable ‘grist’ to her writing ‘mill’. After moving to Yorkshire in 1972, she later went through a painful divorce and survived 6 years with two kiddies as a one parent family - a tough period, from which she has drawn in her fiction writing. After managing a fashion boutique in Wakefield, Yorkshire for 2 years, her last position for several years was sales rep for a top designer spectacle frame company, until redundancy finally allowed Jan to pursue her writing ambition. She has a daughter Jayne, son Justin, and two granddaughters Abby and Alexia. Now happily married to Mark for 35 years, they live in a converted barn in rural Yorkshire. In the past Jan has successfully sold various articles and short stories to UK magazines, but longer book length fiction has been her main interest for many years.

This book has it all – romance, murder, mystery, travel, interior decorating, and a healthy woman who eats chocolate! When James returns from a work trip, he discovers his flat-mate has been murdered. Although he has trouble accepting a break-up with his former girlfriend, he and his best friend, Fran, finally become lovers. The story follows their search for the truth in their lives, and how it affects and intertwines with all the other individuals.

Great character development and descriptions – you could easily identify with the people, places, and fabulous meals! Ms. Warburton did a wonderful job of creating an emotional plotline and weaving the personalities and events into a believable story. Well written and edited, she has a talent for plotting a tale and tying it all together into a satisfying ending.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Secret a story for both men and women. 19. Dezember 2012
Von HombreTel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A love story wrapped around a murder, not my normal type of book at all but I very quickly became enthralled by the story. Jan has crafted an excellent book with every day characters you can identify with, sympathise with and then be furious with. This book deserves to be on the best sellers list. It makes a thoroughly good read, so much so that I finished the last fifty or so pages in an afternoon dying to find out how it ends. You too will be enthralled, give it a try.

3.0 von 5 Sternen nice and easy to read 6. April 2012
Von ElaineG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I did enjoy this book, particularly loved Fran - it was nice to read about a successful woman who shopped in Next and pigged out on chocolate. There were however a couple of things I wasnt satisfied about. Would Ellie's demise (thats the only word i will use because I don't want to give the game away) really have happened that quickly, and what about Josh? The book ended with really no mention of him at all, which seemed very strange to me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Great Romance with a Mystery Thrown In. 25. Februar 2013
Von Dorothy May Mercer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"The Secret," by Jan Warburton is aptly named. Warbuton manages to keep the secret until the last page and the surprise ending. The heroine, Fran, and her best of friends, beautiful Ellie have their ups and downs with the men in their lives, with plenty of great sex, illicit and otherwise. Fran is an interior designer with a reality TV show. We are treated to the makeover of houses, flats and offices. Fran is a chocoholic who can eat whole candy bars without losing her fabulous, though well padded figure. I enjoyed their eating out at Indian restaurants with the resulting exotic dishes. The story takes place in London and other places in the UK, with a side trip to a villa in sunny Spain.
All but one of the main characters are British, that one being an exotic, tiny, young and beautiful Chinese girl name Liu, who causes some tense moments between Fran and her lover-beau.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Twisty plotting! 31. März 2012
Von BOOKWORM OZ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I read this novel in about three days! The central characters have much to contend with, and carry the plot through a mix of murder, friendship, love; and Ellie's devastating secret.The plot had so many twists and turns it certainly kept me guessing! It flows well as we follow James and the nightmare of discovering his murdered flatmate.
I admit to getting a bit miffed with Fran for sleeping with Bob- when she was in love with James! I wasn't sure about the chinese girl, the car accident was just a little too much of a coincidence to swallow. A beefy three and a half to four star rating for me. That said, the author is skilled at creating a complicated emotional plot whilst keeping the narrative readable and I look forward to more. A very good debut novel and hugely enjoyable.
