Book Launch and Q&A with author Glenda Young

November 11, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 2:40 pm


We are delighted to invite you to the virtual book launch of the paperback edition of author Glenda Young’s new cosy crime novel Murder at the Seaview Hotel.

Murder at the Seaview Hotel is set in a B&B in Scarborough and stars 12 Elvis impersonators (called Twelvis!) and when one is found dead with his blue suede shoes missing, hotel landlady Helen Dexter and her rescue greyhound Suki are on the case to solve the crime. With the reputation of the Seaview hotel on the line, Helen isn’t going to wait for the murderer to strike again. With Suki by her side, she decides to find out more about her guests and who wanted to make sure this Elvis never sang again.

Glenda will be discussing her novel including why she chose Scarborough as her setting for this the first of a trilogy of cosy crime books set in the town which also features a pivotal scene that transpires in our very own Rose Gardens!

The virtual launch will take place via zoom on Thursday 11 November at 2pm. To attend the online book launch, email Gemma.Alexander@scarborough.gov.uk and you’ll be sent the Zoom link.

All participants joining the launch will go into a draw, with prizes including Afternoon Tea for two at the idyllically located The Clock Café, dinner for two (up to the value of £50) at Eat Me Café, which is based inside Scarborough’s iconic and beautiful art deco Stephen Joseph Theatre, which features in the book, plus a £50 e-voucher for the grand Grade 2 listed Victorian entertainment venue, the Scarborough Spa.
