ONE SWEET MOMENT

Cover design by Cathy Helms of Avalon Graphics

Edinburgh, 1822: In the glittering New Town, the Scottish capital is fast transforming itself into the Athens of the North. Catriona Dunbar lives in the dank underground vaults of the Old Town, where she and her young brother Andrew are slaves in all but name to their grasping aunt and lecherous uncle. Proud and determined, Kate dreams of escape for Andrew and herself, a dream that may come true when she meets handsome and wealthy medical student Richard Hope. A vibrant love letter to old Edinburgh, One Sweet Moment brings to life another time while skilfully weaving a tale of love and loss.

“Ladies, set aside a whole evening because stopping ain’t an option for this incredibly evocative, heart-wrenching story that asks whether love can conquer all.”  Shari Low, Daily Record.

“A big, huge, romantic story with a totally heart-melting ending.”  Clare English, BBC Radio Scotland’s Book Cafe.

“…a bloody good novel and a very satisfying read.”  Bill Kirton, Scottish crime writer.

GATHERING STORM

Cover design by Cathy Helms of Avalon Graphics

Edinburgh, Yuletide 1743, and Redcoat officer Robert Catto would rather be anywhere else on earth than Scotland. Seconded back from the wars in Europe to captain the city’s Town Guard, he fears his covert mission to assess the strength of the Jacobite threat will force him to confront the past he tries so hard to forget. Christian Rankeillor, her surgeon-apothecary father and his apprentice Jamie Buchan of Balnamoon are committed supporters of the Stuart Cause. They’re hiding a Jacobite agent with a price on his head in Edinburgh Royal Infirmary: a hanging offence.

“…a tale full of crime, politics and intrigue, set against the backdrop of Edinburgh in the 1740s.” Scottish Field

“Gathering Storm by Maggie Craig is an outstandingly good read. The characters are thoroughly convincing, and the sense of time and place rings absolutely true. …while Gathering Storm does have a historical setting, and does have potential romantic interest at its core, it could equally be described as a political thriller or a historical crime novel.” Undiscovered Scotland

“Strongly recommend Maggie Craig’s new novel Gathering Storm. Great characters, great story.” Lin Anderson, best-selling Scottish crime novelist and screenwriter.

“The wonderful Maggie Craig travels back in time to 18th century Edinburgh in Gathering Storm.” Shari Low, Daily Record

“A crackingly good storyline, well told and written with pace and humour.” Bill Kelly, independent Scottish bookseller, Better Read Books, Ellon.
