The Former World: Book One in the Little Forest paranormal mystery
series. "Little Forest is the only place I've ever lived, and it's
the place where I'm going to die. Tonight." These are the words of
Beth Powers, long-time resident of Little Forest. On the surface,
she's just an ordinary English girl in a typical English village,
but appearances can be deceiving... extremely deceiving. There's
something lurking beneath the picturesque facade of the English
village of Little Forest, something dark and disconcerting,
something which the vast majority of the residents are refusing to
see... Fed up with living in the tiny, gossip-fuelled village,
twenty-one year old Beth resolves to escape to London with her best
friend, Veronica Summers. That is, until something throws a spanner
in the works. A rather large spanner. A dead body, to be exact. A
dead body found early one morning in the spooky surroundings of the
Great Specton Woods. The apparently accidental death of Beth's work
colleague sets off the small community's well-oiled rumour mill,
and Beth soon finds herself in the middle of a bizarre village
conspiracy. Potential suspects start appearing in all shapes and
sizes - including the handsome new resident, mystery man Connor
Maguire, who has conveniently just arrived in Little Forest - and
with the police refusing to consider murder, Beth takes it upon
herself to investigate. At least it's a good distraction from the
other strange and unusual things that have started happening in her
generally boring life; let's just say that Beth's work colleague
isn't the only dead person she has to deal with these days. After
all, it isn't always something as innocent as the ghosts of past
memories that come to get you... With the help of rather unlikely
ally Will Wolseley, Beth delves into the village's sinister secrets
and, in turn, uncovers a terrifying truth about herself that could
change her life forever. Unfortunately, she might not have much of
'forever' left, as when it comes right down to it, it's not a
question of whether or not she'll decide to leave her childhood
home. The question is whether or not Little Forest will let her go.
The Former World is reminiscent of a good old-fashioned English
mystery thriller, updated to the twenty-first Century but still
relying on the quaint locations of the beautiful English
countryside: close-knit villages, local pubs, ancient castles,
large, looming forests and magnificent Stately homes. This
enchanting rural environment gives Beth the perfect setting to
explore the ominous events that threaten to shake up her small
village and her life. "Jessica Grace Coleman is one of the most
exciting new writers around. Her stories inspire, entertain and
mesmerise. An absolute must-read." - Adam Croft, English author.

mystery 'Little Forest' series, setting the stage for the follow
ups: 'Memento Mori, ' 'The Exalted' and 'Carnival Masquerade'. The

Coleman delves into the world of legends and paranormal activity in

The Little Forest series isn't just concerned with spirits of the
dead or other ghost stories, it's about how we would react if these
terrifying spectres actually did come into our world. How would you
