I'm really touched by your messages, and your concern for my welfare! I'm glad to report that I'm alive and well,the explanation for my disappearance being I was dumped by Simon & Schuster (I know, nobody can figure out why, incl my agent and editor), and other publishers won't even consider taking on a series that's already started. But we've found a small British firm that may take me on, so keep your fingers crossed. Pat Harwin

For heaven's sake, people, it's fictionm sit back and enjoy it. If you picky people want accurancy, then read non-fiction. I, for one, loved her characterization and really do wish she'd get busy with her third book and ignore people like you. So what if she puts cream in her tea. My garsh!

I would love to see more books by her, I love them.

She had a web site at patharwin.com, and that is gone. I exchanged emails with her a couple of times when the second book came out, and she indicated there were some differences of opinion about publishing the third book. It's really too bad, because her books were fun to read. I would love to see more.
I don't much care about those details she may have had wrong. She had lived in England for a while, so I believe she had a pretty good read on the culture. The stories were entertaining, regardless of cream in her tea.

I was hoping to find more also ... I do have the second book on hold at my library ... guess that's all there is ...
have you checked the obituaries to see if she died??

I have just read Arson and Old Lace. Not too bad, easy to read, but I am a bit amazed, seeing as it was written in 2004, that she writes about buying a CORTINA which has probably not been made by Ford for at least twenty years maybe more!!! I think she may most likely have bought a Focus!!

The author has not done nearly enough research. The idea of cream in tea is absolutely awful!Almost all other food combinations mentioned are very weird , we have roast potatoes not roasted potatoes. If the cottage has wavy glass in mullioned windows it is very unlikely to have any central heating nor a shower. The digging up of a churchyard cross would never happen and it would be nothing to do with the bishop. Church commissioners maybe and English Heritage. The church would not be Episcopalian but Church of England. I've never heard of a furnished property being sold rather than rented.
The whole thing is very very unlikely
indeed written by someone who knows nothing about Oxfordshire or its history.

I read the first chapter (a cliff hanger) of her third book in the back of the second book and would love to know what happens next. I have spent hours cruising the net trying to find out what has happened to Patricia Harwin. My email to her has also bounced. I have asked her publisher, Simon & Schuster, to notify me when she has a new book. Ms. Harwin is 69 years old, perhaps she is in poor health. Hope her new book comes out soon.
