What happens when a woman's husband disappears in mysterious circumstances while they are on holiday in the South of France.....

Excerpt:

                                     “I believe I lost  my husband outside the Church of Miracles.  I know he had been there at the time in the gardens, which were dark green and dismal after rain.  I was trying to use up the end of a long roll of film and called out to him.  He looked back at me and I think he smiled, but when the photographs came back from the developer, he was no longer there.  You could just about make out some distant shape, almost a shadow at the end of a long row of cypresses, but it no longer resembled a person....  

Review:  I loved this book … gripping and scary.  On the first page you feel the need to turn the page and see what happens next.    ( Sara Banerji. )

  A Spell in France is published by Matador, and available on Kindle, and all other electronic readers...
