The Thornthwaite Betrayal (Piccadilly Books)

After a lifetime of mutual mistrust and devilish plots to take each other’s lives, orphaned twins Ovid and Lorelli Thornthwaite have finally called an end to their ongoing civil war. An uncomfortable peace has fallen over their home. They are trying to live normal lives, going to school, making friends, not plotting each other’s demise – that kind of thing. Then long lost Uncle Harry comes to stay and danger returns to Thornthwaite Manor. A chandelier falls while they are under it … a fire starts in Lorelli’s room… nowhere is safe. Who could be behind the attacks? Uncle Harry? His French Chef, Beaufort Nouveau? Tom the gardener? Nurse Griddle? Hazel? Or perhaps Ovid is finding it hard to kick his old habits? As fresh mysteries emerge from within the grounds of the Thornthwaite estate, no one is above suspicion because everyone has a secret in this much anticipated sequel to The Thornthwaite Inheritance.
