Product Description

Bannister "is as good at creating suspense as she is at creating characters."
—San Jose Mercury News

When the publisher of the Skipley Chronicle hired Primrose Holland as his newspaper's advice colum­nist, it was either the best decision he ever made—or the worst. For Rosie, a pathologist who quit her job at the morgue to come to this local weekly in the spirit of adventure, is larger than life in every sense.  

But the reason her breezy column has dou­bled the Chronicle's circulation is the same reason she's a tough employee: she's not afraid to speak her mind, and speak it loudly. Faced with letters from readers about everything from inadvertently eating a slug to the etiquette of finding your mother in bed with a younger man, Rosie's advice is always unorthodox, frequently hilarious, and prone to land her in hot water.  

But Rosie never gets in as much trouble as she does when she volunteers to help Fiona Morris look for her brother Philip, who disappeared while birdwatching in the Hebrides. Fiona and Rosie set off for Scotland to look for Philip, along with two recruits: another of Rosie's readers, birdwatching expert Arthur Prufrock, and his gardener, reluctant psychic Shad Lucas.  

Perhaps they should have known better (espe­cially the psychic). For Rosie's no-nonsense approach to this particular problem is about to prove very dangerous. 

Jo Bannister's novels are consistently praised for her piercing characterization and nail-biting suspense, and with The Primrose Convention, she turns these skills to an eminently likable new cast and a smart, delightfully cozy premise.

Praise for Jo Bannister

Castlemere series

"The authors superb character work starts with the three officers….
These decent cops can handle a sensitive confrontation
with a grieving father as well as a brutal piece
of action on the wharves. Castlemere is just
the sort of hard-luck town that can
keep them busy for a long time."
—The New York Times Book Review on Charisma 

"Under a satisfyingly action-filled whodunit, she's buried
a piercing tale of conflicting loyalties that makes
her coppers flare into bold relief—as
if they'd finally got the case that would
show what they were made of."
Kirkus Reviews (starred) on A Taste for Burning

"Taking her already accomplished characterization
to new levels of depth and intensity. Bannister cre­ates
deeply suspenseful situations, resolves them
with panache, and melds the various themes
into an extremely satisfying whole."
Publishers Weekly on No Birds Sing
