Poisoned
Primrose

Motts
Cold Case Mystery Book 1 

“Wonderful mystery with a unique and special heroine!” – A Cozy Cup of Murder
Meet Motts and the quirky cast of characters in her world. Poisoned Primrose is a quintessential cosy British mystery and an all-round fun story to throw yourself into.

Autistic, asexual, and almost forty, Pineapple “Motts” Mottley flees London with her cat and turtle to a quaint cottage in Cornwall. She craves the peace of life in a small village. The dead body buried in her garden isn’t quite what she had in mind, though.
 
Unable to resist her curiosity, she falls directly into a mess of trouble and runs head-first into the attractive detective inspector, Teo Herceg. She tries to balance her business with the investigation, but as the killer focuses on her, staying alive becomes trickier than advanced origami.
 
Will Motts survive the onslaught of murderously bad luck?
 
Can she solve the mystery before it all spins out of control and off a cliff?

Characters
and their worlds have inundated Kristen’s mind since she was
a kid. Traveling to far off places and having words on a piece of
paper transform into entire scenes pulling at her emotions is an
obsession.

 

Her
goal as a fantasy author isn’t solely to relish in her imagination,
but to bring representation to this genre. She wants stories
with characters who are diverse inside and out.
Their differences are not the focal point of the story, but
rather a natural part of their being. Due to this, you will
often not only find characters of varying ethnicities, who battle diseases and are neuroatypical, and plenty
of other areas that make us all so different from each other. These
are not their defining qualities. It’s simply a part of who they
are. To further support these communities, Kristen donates 10%
of her profits to various organizations.

 

 

When
Kristen isn’t cooped up on her computer or curled up with a
book, she is often outdoors– hiking, snorkeling, diving,
camping, etc. 

 

Currently,
she resides in California with her husband and fur babies
(two dogs and a cat).
