Little, Brown imprint Piatkus has signed three books in a new Cornwall-based series by Terri Nixon.
Eleanor Russell, junior editor, acquired world all language rights from Kate Nash at the Kate Nash Literary Agency.
The saga will follow the Fox family’s fortunes at a grand hotel on the Cornish Riviera. The first novel in the new series is planned for publication in December.
Nixon, whose Penhaligon saga was also published by Piatkus, said: "I'm thrilled to be working with Piatkus again, and very much look forward to launching a brand new series with this wonderful, supportive team behind me."
Russell added: "I’m hugely excited to continue working with Terri on this brand new series set on the Cornish Riviera. Terri writes Cornish sagas absolutely brilliantly and I am delighted we have three new books from her to look forward to."
