British Mystery Author Veronica Heley & False Report — 15 Comments

  1. Thank you. That is exactly what I am trying to do, to show Christian women struggling to cope with life as it is today, with all its different pressures. Bea Abbot certainly is a strong woman, but she does know she can’t just rely on herself to solve the problems that come her way. Thank you for your interest. I hope you enjoy False Report and the other stories in this series.

  2. Thanks for your kind words. I am not copying biblical heroines in my books – there are two series of Christian-based modern crime novels, but they do both try to be Christians in a very unChristian world. The Bea Abbot series is now up to seven and I’m writing another at this moment. She has to struggle sometimes to do the right thing when everything is against her. She is definitely a strong woman in her own right.
    My other series, the Ellie Quicke mysteries, also features a Christian woman in today’s world, but she has to struggle against her daughter’s very unChristian stance all the time.
    I do hope you will enjoy reading about these women.

  3. Thanks for your kind words. But one problem – this particular story is not a historical, but very much up to date and in this world. I have written some historical novels in the past – maybe you can find a copy somewhere on the internet – but this one is definitely set in today’s world. I hope you enjoy it.

  4. Thanks for your kind words. I hope you enjoy reading False Report – and the other stories about Bea Abbot, her domestic agency and her extended family.

  5. The first title in the Bea Abbot series is – False Charity. My husband gave me the idea for this, to while away the time while he was in hospital.

  6. I’m glad to know about this author. I love mystery stories so will watch for a chance to read this one. One interesting tidbit about colors… I never thought of black as being a negative color, I had heard it gives a slimming effect, one which I need (or thought I did). But I absolutely DO love bright colors, any and all. Fun post!

  7. What a great post, Lyn and Veronica! I also write fictional stories inspired by strong Biblical women, though my books are contemporary in setting. Rahab and Ruth are particular favorites because they overcame so much adversity and learned to put their trust in the living God. I look forward to reading False Report, Veronica! Love a mystery with inspirational characters. 🙂

  8. I am going to have to look for Veronica Heley books now. 🙂 I love the idea of basing a character on a person from the Bible.

  9. Looking forward to ready False Report by Veronica Heley. Always enjoy historical novels about women – nice to have another one to dig in to. Especially one about a strong woman with biblical values.

  10. Lyn, this Author sounds good and I’m going to look into it, so glad you brought her to our attention, thank you Lyn for your blog I’ll write and tell you what I thought, thanks again, Virginia

  11. False Report sounds like a wonderful book. Am putting it on my to-read list. Looking forward to writing a review after I’m done.

    Love stories about strong women – especially when they are based on historical figures.

    Veronica Heley is an author I shall have delight in discovering!

  12. i requested a Veronica Heley book at the local library because of your post. Thank you. Now, what is the title of the first novel in this series, and do they rely on each other? Thanks, Lynn for your inspiring blog
