I’m exited to share with you that my novel
THE EMERALD AFFAIR (Book 1 in the new RAJ HOTEL SERIES) has been chosen as an Amazon First Reads for December (ahead of its publication on 1st January 2020) so is now available on and Amazon.UK Amazon.AU
As the night draws in, there’s nothing I like more than an epic love story (envisage the drama of The English Patient) that sweeps you away to a wonderful setting and leaves your heart full and ultimately uplifted. In The Emerald Affair, Janet MacLeod Trotter delivers just that, pure indulgence! – Sammia Hamer, publisher
For those not in the UK or Australia, it’s available on pre-order.
Hope you enjoy it!
All the best
