Welcome back to Bumpkinton!

World-renowned author Sara Hawthorne has chosen the village of Bumpkinton to launch her new book.

However, as the writer arrives, all hell breaks loose as the community faces its worst crime wave in living memory. Even the church roof tiles have been stolen!

The time has come for a fundraising event the likes of which Bumpkinton has never seen. But when the big night turns sour, the village needs a hero.

It needs a run of spectacular shows orchestrated by a theatrical genius.

It needs the fantastical Gregory Shortbread.

Praise for The Fantastical Gregory Shortbread

"A funny and thoroughly engaging who-dun-it.

The plot twists keep you guessing, the characters keep you laughing, and the excellent writing keeps you reading.

I would describe the style as Vicar of Dibley meets Midsummer Murders (without the murders!).

Bumpkinton is inhabited by a wonderful eclectic mix of characters and when The Fantastical Gregory Shortbread arrives in town..."
