It's on its way in October. I'll post the cover here and on Twitter and Facebook when it becomes available. I can tell you now that it's even prettier than the cover for the first book, and that's really saying something.
From my publisher's official description of the upcoming A FATAL WINTER:
"Last year, Agatha Award-winning author G. M. Malliet charmed mystery lovers, cozy fans, and Agatha Christie devotees with Wicked Autumn, the first mystery featuring her captivating protagonist, Max Tudor, and the small English village of Nether Monkslip.
"In A Fatal Winter, Max—Anglican priest, former MI5 agent, and village heartthrob—investigates two deaths at Chedrow Castle. But his growing attraction to Awena Owen complicates his case, as does the recent arrival at Chedrow Castle of a raucous group of long-lost, greedy relatives, any one of whom has a motive for murder. With a cozy setting, intricate puzzles, and a handsome (non-celibate) priest doing the sleuthing, the books in this series are destined to become instant classics in the mystery world."
This is still in progress, but I've seen a mock-up and it is a real work of art - all blues and turquoises and a lovely silhouette of a wicked-looking tree. The final cover art should be coming soon - and of course I will post it here right away!
