Suspense, mystery, action, a little romance and lots of laughs
Out-of-work actress Derry O'Donnell is talented, professional, just a little psychic... and broke. Spurred on by an ultimatum from her awesomely high-achieving mother, Derry embarks on a part-time career as Madam Tulip, fortune teller to the rich and famous. But at her first fortune-telling gig - a celebrity charity weekend in a luxurious castle - a famous rap artist mysteriously dies.
As Derry is drawn deeper into a seedy world of fashion, millionaires, horses and cocaine, she must race to save her best friend from jail and a supermodel from being murdered. Her efforts threaten to destroy her friends, her ex-lover, her father and herself.
Fans of humorous mystery writers Janet Evanovich and Carl Hiaasen will love Madam Tulip.
Madame Tulip is the first in a series of thrilling and hilarious Tulip adventures in which Derry O’Donnell, celebrity fortune-teller and reluctant amateur detective, plays the most exciting and perilous roles of her acting life, drinks borage tea, and fails to understand her parents.
MADAM TULIP by David Ahern is the perfect blend of cosy mystery and comedy which will keep you entertained from start to finish. Derry is just trying to make a living doing what she loves, but when her mother threatens to stop helping her financially, she knows she has to do something and fast. So Derry decides to use her slight psychic abilities and become Madam Tulip, and when she is booked to attend a celebrity bash in the countryside, what could go wrong? Everything as it so happens. With murder, drugs, millionaires and supermodels, Derry is going to have to really get to work to figure out the mystery. Throw in some romance and a unique cast of quirky friends and family members, and MADAM TULIP by David Ahern will have you laughing and playing detective at the same time. A really easy, enjoyable read.
BOOK RATING - 📖📖📖📖 4.5
David Ahern grew up in a theatrical family in Ireland but ran away to Scotland to become a research psychologist and sensible person. He earned his doctorate and taught in major Universities but could never explain to his granny why he didn’t own a stethoscope.
Finding the challenge of pretending to know things exhausting, David Ahern shaved off his beard and absconded once more, this time to work in television. He became a writer, director and producer, creating international documentary series and winning numerous awards, none of which got him free into nightclubs.
For no particular reason, David Ahern took to writing fiction. Madame Tulip wasn't his first novel, but writing it was the most fun he'd ever had with a computer. The second in the Madam Tulip mystery series, Madam Tulip and the Knave of Hearts, was published in autumn 2016. He is now writing the third Madam Tulip adventure and enjoys pretending this is actual work.
David Ahern lives in the beautiful West of Ireland with his wife, two cats and a vegetable garden of which he is inordinately proud. For more information:
