Has fashion become a deadly business?

Cutting edge designers, Paulette Fredericks and Nicole Saunders, are summoned to Starlington Hall to create a bespoke wardrobe for Lady Philippa Soames.
Quickly drawn into the family and its dramas, they are present when a fellow guest is violently murdered at a shooting party.
These two unconventional women, who are both inquisitive by nature and observant at all times, begin their own investigations.
With a cast of intriguing potential suspects they have their work cut out.
How long can secrets from the past remain hidden?
And can they save the day before the killer strikes again?

In Losing the thread Lynda Florence Hughes has created two colourful amateur sleuths in a debut novel that will keep you guessing to the very end.

"Crisp dialogue, delightful descriptions and a page-turning denouement make this book a joy from start to finish. I highly recommend it if you enjoy Agatha Christie, Rosemary and Thyme, The Dales Detective Series, Agatha Raisin or Richard Osman." - Janey Louise Jones, Author of the Princess Poppy series.

"Lynda’s Florence Hughes’s ‘Losing the Thread’ is a treat for fans of traditional country house murder stories with a modern twist, in which a warmly appealing pair of lady detectives pit their wits against gentry and their hangers on. Sharp and witty dialogue and some eye-opening surprises give the novel pace ― not to mention the compelling mystery with its satisfying twist!" --Daniel Sellers, author of Murder in the Gallowgate.
