Books by Jenny Worstall
Jenny Worstall has turned to crime - of the cosy variety.
The first story introduces us to Miss Rosie Peach, a young teacher keen to sort out other people's problems. In 'Best Song in the World', Celia tries to intervene between her son and daughter-in-law; she has to revisit sad events in her own marriage in order to help the young couple. The heroine in 'The Lady with the Funny Hair' has had enough - after all, even a worm will turn in the end.
'The Funny Business of Life' is a not entirely serious murder mystery and is the second book by Jenny Worstall in the 'Sing with the Choir' series.
We meet a host of characters who are mercilessly sent up by the author; all is sharply and wittily observed in a delightful mix of romance, music and humour.
'Strawberry Thief' opens with a cutting from a local newspaper telling of the discovery of a young child's skull and other small bones from at least a hundred years ago. The second story, 'Peacock and Dragon', portrays a young woman facing an age old dilemma. 'Love is Enough' is about jealousy and the dark consequences it can lead to.
'Jubilee Violin' is a collection of three short stories from the author of the 'Sing with the Choir' series. The first, 'Jubilee Violin', is a poignant story about generosity and the passing of time- a sweet song for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. 'Turning Point' and 'Dolls' House' explore what happens when things go wrong in family life.
The stories deal with everyday family situations and their sometimes surprising resolutions. In the first story, 'Old School', we meet an interfering mother-in-law who is due for a shock. The second story introduces us to an 'Infant Barbarian' spoilt by an indulgent parent. Justice is again dispensed in an unexpected way .
'Lemon and Lace' is a bittersweet collection of three short stories about love and choice from the author of the 'Sing with the Choir' series. These tiny slices of life are available free from Amazon and other sites.
