I just found the cover for the The Bride That Time Forgot, the 5th instalment of the Brenda & Effie Paranormal Mystery series by Paul Magrs on his blog and I love it. I really like all the little details like the spider webs, clock hands and the title is so cute – I still think I like the covers for Something Borrowed and Conjugal Rites more, but I do think this cover captures the essence of the story and it’s quirkiness.

I adore the Brenda & Effie series, it is one of my favourites. I really urge you to try them. They are witty, intelligently written and SO quintessentially British! I just can’t wait for this one to be released!

PUBLISHER: Headline | RELEASE DATE: Oct 2010

Something is biting people on the streets of Whitby. In an ordinary town, this would be worrying. Here, it’s disastrous, and only Brenda has guessed why. She’s also trying to prepare for a packed festive break at her B&B, but her best friend Effie is in distracted mood: she just hasn’t been the same since her suave gentleman friend Alucard reappeared.

Meanwhile, Penny has joined a book group in the new mystery bookstore, the Spooky Finger. As she is drawn into the strange and fantastic works of Edwardian lady novelist Beatrice Mapp, she makes some very surprising discoveries. Discoveries that will soon impact upon the lives of all the ladies of Whitby. When unexpected help from the shadows of the past arrives to illuminate the dangers awaiting them all, Brenda realises that unless she can find a way to save Effie, the consequences may be eternal – Headline.
