About Carmen Radtke
Carmen has spent most of her life with ink on her fingers and a dangerously high pile of books and newspapers by her side.
She has worked as a newspaper reporter on two continents and always dreamt of becoming a novelist and screenwriter.
When she found herself crouched under her dining table, typing away on a novel between two earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand, she realised she was hooked for life.
The shaken but stirring novel made it to the longlist of the Mslexia competition, and her next book and first mystery, The Case Of The Missing Bride, was a finalist in the Malice Domestic competition in a year without a winner.
Carmen was born in Hamburg, Germany, but had planned on emigrating since she was five years old. She first moved to New Zealand and now lives in York, UK, with her family, including a cat and a leopard gecko.

I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Cafe – Review Group and publishers for an honest review – Thank you
Not a normal choice of book for me however I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Although I wished I had read the first one just to know the characters a little before reading this one. I did take me a while to get into the story, but once I did I really enjoyed it.
Glittering death is set back in the 1800’s, a group of women were sent from Australia to a small gold prospecting town in America to find themselves husbands. Alyssa our main character is hard not to like, a well educated lady helps her new found friends find love and settle. There is a mystery in this volume as well once they arrive in Canada. Alyssa, our heroine, also is at an important choice… Doctor Mark or Mr Kendrick. She’s spoiled for choice! She makes the decision of life-time while solving a crime. It was well-written and a joy to read. I am looking forward to read the next one.
