Product description

Product Description

Benedict Archer, who is manager of Thornton Antiques in Melbourne and who has been secretly helping Alexandra learn more about her family business, is also invited. Alexandra asks Benedict and Edith Blackburn, her friend since childhood, to be with her when she approaches her father.



When Edith claims that Benedict is in love with her, Alexandra can’t believe it. In all the time they’d been at Thornton Antiques together, he’d never said a word. Now, Alexandra looks at him differently. Can it be true?



Then a body found in the orchard and, before the weekend is over, a priceless artifact is stolen. Alexandra is determined to discover how these things are connected to the Ming dragon and the antiques her great-grandfather brought with him from Hong Kong so many years ago.



What secret has remained hidden at Thornton Park for the last eight years?

About the Author

Ellen Read was born in Queensland, Australia. She has always enjoyed reading, even from a young age. As an only child, she made up stories about fairies and little people in other worlds. When she was eighteen, she started writing her first book. Several novels followed, which are now in the proverbial bottom drawer, and Ellen says will probably never see the light of day. She loves to read fiction, non-fiction and poetry and particularly loves history and stories of ancient myths and legends. Authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Agatha Christie, and Victoria Holt, the latter of whom wrote gothic mystery/romances, have influenced her own work. Ellen's other passion is photography. She loves to photograph flowers, landscapes and architecture. Her website features many of her photos. Other interests include music and musical theatre, and dance. Ellen was a ballroom dancing teacher for many years and has also worked in Performing Arts administration.
