“This novel portrays my love of London, New York and island lifestyles. Although fiction, there are many topics in the book that people of all levels of life may relate to such as grieving the loss of a loved one, supporting ill loved ones and starting over," says Culmer.

Gabrielle F. Culmer has released “Easing Distractions,” the sequel to her previous novel, “Damp Whisper.” Newlywed Amelie-Aurore is enjoying her busy life in Knightsbridge, London with her husband Lars where she owns a property consultancy firm and Lars is the senior partner of his legal practice. Their lives are filled with family, friends, vacations, elegant soirees and Amelie has no desire to exchange it for anything.

Everything changes once Amelie becomes a victim of international commercial fraud.

When Amelie and Lars are faced with new developments regarding the attempted heist of the family's art collection, they unearth more uncertainty surrounding Amelie’s late mother's business dealings. As Amelie continues to grieve her mother and learn about new leads in the case, an unexpected illness in the family causes more fear and challenges her perspective on life.

While she envisions a summer of galas, sporting events and romantic holidays, details continue to emerge that haunt her happiness. An old, mysterious family acquaintance appears in London to assist in solving the case adding more confusion to Amelie’s life. Now Amelie must decide whether to continue relying on her dependable partner or turn to family connections for relief.

“This novel portrays my love of London, New York and island lifestyles. Although fiction, there are many topics in the book that people of all levels of life may relate to such as grieving the loss of a loved one, supporting ill loved ones and starting over. The book also shows an appreciation for legal mystery, sustainable travel, nature, the arts as well as theatre and drama,” says Culmer.
