Murder at the Christmas Carols. We explore the mind of Author Vicky Newham.


Vicky is a British author, teacher & story coach. She lives on the Kent coast, with her crazy cockerpoo. She is passionate about the power of stories to inspire and change lives.
Vicky grew up in a sleepy village outside Chichester in West Sussex. At seventeen, she swapped green fields and mud for city pavements, and studied French & German in London. After working in sales and fundraising after that, and running various successful businesses, she followed her heart’s desire and began her Psychology degree. In 2002, she began teaching GCSE/A-level Psychology.

Vicky stopped teaching in schools in 2012 and began an MA Creative Writing at Kingston University. She moved to the Kent coast in 2013 and has made her home there.

She teaches in person and online, and writes fiction and non-fiction.

This is a cozy mystery series set in a fictional village called Lower Wootton in Kent, in the area between Deal and Dover. The main character is Ellie Blix who is a busy mum who has lived in Wootton all her life.

The first in the series, Murder at the Christmas Carols, was published on 21st November 2022 and quickly reached the top 100 kindle chart on Amazon. It’s currently in the top 300. The second book will be out in the spring of 2023.

This is the blurb:
A dead carol singer. Three women sleuths. Not your average village Christmas.
All Ellie Blix wants is to make it to New Year without any more disasters. She's juggling jobs and looking after a sick daughter. Then her mother-in-law moves in and won’t stop interfering.
It’s the week before Christmas in the snowy village of Lower Wootton. When Andrea Burdett, Ellie's estranged schoolfriend, collapses at the village carols, it quickly becomes clear she’s been murdered. Feeling guilty about the recent row she and Andrea had, and under suspicion herself, Ellie teams up with her daughter and mother-in-law to follow the clues and solve the mystery - much to the annoyance of Ellie's detective inspector ex-husband.

Then a second villager is found dead. Can the three Blix women find the killer and return the community to safety?

VINE STREET: **BEST CRIME BOOKS OF 2021 - THE TIMES/SUNDAY TIMES** **CRIME BOOK OF THE MONTH - THE TIMES** 'Savage, beautiful, mesmeric...a very special book.' CHRIS WHITAKER, AUTHOR OF WE BEGIN AT THE END 'Extraordinary...a career-defining performance.' THE TIMES/SUNDAY TIMES 'This is crime writing of the highest quality' DAILY MAIL SOHO, 1935. SERGEANT LEON GEATS' PATCH. A snarling, skull-cracking misanthrope, Geats marshals the grimy rabble according to his own elastic moral code. The narrow alleys are brimming with jazz bars, bookies, blackshirts, ponces and tarts so when a body is found above the Windmill Club, detectives are content to dismiss the case as just another young woman who topped herself early. But Geats - a good man prepared to be a bad one if it keeps the worst of them at bay - knows the dark seams of the city. Working with his former partner, mercenary Flying Squad sergeant Mark Cassar, Geats obsessively dedicates himself to finding a warped killer - a decision that will reverberate for a lifetime and transform both men in ways they could never expect.
