Jake Snow from Elodie Parkes now available on your kindle
I personally love Elodie Parkes and all of her work.
Whenever I hear there is something more to read from her, I tend to put aside
what I'm currently reading and move her to the front. Welcome to my blog today
Elodie. Can you share some things with us?
Thank you for inviting me to the blog today with my new
release, ‘Jake Snow’.
The book is the story of Bethany Snow’s brother. Bethany is
the leading female character in my erotic romance, ‘The Last Time’ and people
who read the book early in its release always wanted to know more about Jake. I
had his story in my head and so here it is.
‘The Last Time’ takes place on a movie location and that’s
where Jake and Bethany, who are private investigators are sent by their agency
to deal with hate mail being sent to a movie star there. It’s two years since
his sister got married and Jake has been working cases alone. He’s tired and
hoping to find love too when we meet him in this book. This time the story
takes place in the fashion world and Jake gets caught up in the strange
happenings in an atelier.
The idea for the movie location book came to me when I was
invited to watch a shoot by an indie film maker. The idea for the high fashion
setting for this book was seeded about the same time when I went to watch a
fashion show with friends. I was on holiday overseas, with them. We had
attended a dance theatre, and then later in the week a fashion show. I knew
immediately that I would write a story about the world of fashion. The idea of
placing Jake Snow in this world came after I had written, The Last Time.
A new romantic mystery from Amazon best-selling author,
Private detective, Jake Snow, has grown tired of working
alone since his sister Bethany married, and stopped working on field cases with
him. He's chosen less high-powered cases as he decides against teaming with
another partner from the Black Agency. Gradually Jake realizes he wants the
kind of love his sister found, and a different job...
When he's sent on what he thinks is a simple surveillance
assignment, just before he's due to take his requested extended leave, he finds
a tangled web of lies, and a fashion designer in trouble...
The question is will he also find love?
With steamy love scenes and a twist of fun, this book is

She pulled her T-shirt down to show him the top of her arm.
There was a big bruise starting where her shoulder met the top of her arm and
it continued down her arm a little way.
Jake frowned. “I’m sorry. I did that didn’t I? I knew you
were slender, but I thought I was dealing with a young guy, maybe casing the
place for a robbery. Have you got any witch hazel, that’s good for bruises?”
She shook her head, and pulled up her T-shirt.
“Maybe a pack of frozen peas?” Jake really wanted to help,
and at the same time, he was trying to squash down an urgent need to hold her
close and kiss that bruise away. It worried him, but he found her very

tear slid down her cheek and dripped off her chin. Jake caught it in the palm
of his hand.
“Don’t cry. I’ll talk with my boss and maybe there will be
some way we can help you.”
