About Julie Butterfield
Julie Butterfield belongs to the rather large group of 'always wanted to write' authors who finally found the time to sit down and put pen to paper - or rather fingers to keyboard.
She wrote her first book purely for pleasure and was very surprised to discover that so many people enjoyed the story and wanted more, so she decided to carry on writing.
It has to be pointed out that her first novel, 'Did I Mention I Won The Lottery' is a complete work of fiction and she did not, in fact, receive millions in her bank account and forget to mention it to her husband - even though he still asks her every day if she has anything to tell him!

Working for a department store where Christmas arrives in August, Eve prefers her own festivities to be low key with nothing more complicated than an oven ready turkey and frozen peas while she spends the day in her pyjamas. Unfortunately, this year her husband has invited his best friend to visit, the glamorous and sophisticated Abby, and Eve reluctantly decides that she needs to inject a little sparkle into their laid back and slightly shabby Christmas. So the celebrations are upgraded to include champagne and canapes along with homemade gravy and organic turkey and plans are made for a Christmas that looks as though it has emerged from the pages of a glossy magazine.
But even the best laid plans can go wrong and as Eve struggles with her mini Yorkshire puddings and an interfering cat, she is suddenly faced with an unexpected guest and an explosive secret that threatens to put her vision of a perfect Christmas in jeopardy.

Lucy Mathers Goes Back To Work
Lucy Mathers was once the golden girl of Simcock & Bright. Four years later, she’s a stay at home mum with two adorable children, has swapped her Louboutins for rabbit slippers and spends her day making crustless sandwiches and colour co-ordinated lunches instead of signing up high profile clients. When her husband is suddenly made redundant, there is panic in the Mathers’ household. With a mortgage the size of the national debt and a credit card balance that’s in danger of toppling, Lucy reluctantly decides she must return to work. So she digs out her old power suits from the back of the wardrobe and leaves Will to become a house husband. But sitting in Lucy’s old office is Grant Cassidy, suave, handsome and ruthless and with no intention of letting Lucy walk back into the number one job. At home, despite his breezy declaration that swapping boardroom battles for toddler groups would be a doddle, Will’s belief that parental issues could be solved with forward planning and a spreadsheet soon falls by the wayside. With both Will and Lucy struggling to adapt, could their previously happy marriage be developing some cracks?

Why would anyone want to kill Donald Babbington, what is the mystery surrounding the missing keys, is there a blackmail plot afoot or did someone intend to catnap Cleopatra?
Yet another murder in the normally tranquil village brings chaos, along with DI Wainwright the stern but delicious detective. Is he still pining for the less picturesque streets of inner-city Manchester, or have The Cotswolds and Issie finally stolen his heart? Will he reprise his role as her knight in shining armour or will Issie become Lower Dimblebrook’s latest fatality?
So many questions but all will be revealed in the latest book in the Isabelle Darby Cozy Village Mystery Series.
There's been another murder and this time Issie is a suspect. DI Wainwright returns to Lower Dimblebrook to investigate but will he believe Issie or arrest her? Who did kill Della Burrows? And why was she in possession of so many wills? Issie tries to clear her name but in the process, becomes the next victim!
"These books are well written and combine a gentle humour with likeable and interesting main characters.
I don't usually read murder mysteries but I love these!"
When Isabelle Darby moves to the tranquil and picturesque village of Lower Dimblebrook, she is expecting peace and solitude, not scandal and murder!

Book 1, Deadly Whispers in Lower Dimblebrook. Fiona Lambourne has been found murdered in the local car park and gossip is rife that the killer was a jealous lover. In an effort to defend her friend's reputation and prove DI Wainwright wrong, Issie finds herself face to face with the real killer. Will she become the next victim?
Book 2, Wilful Changes in Lower Dimblerbook. There's another dead body in the village and this time Issie is a suspect.
Her determination to prove her innocence makes her a target for Lower Dimblebrook's latest killer, will DI Wainwright arrest her or become her knight in shining armour?
Book 3, Key Mishaps in Lower Dimblebrook. Who killed Donald Babbington? Was it a crazed catnapper, or a blackmail plot gone wrong? As per usual Issie finds herself at the centre of the investigation - much to the displeasure of DI Wainwright who would rather ask her out for dinner rather than demand her fingerprints!
