Blue Blue Waves of Autumn is the second book in the series about Cilla Storm.


Fall has arrived and Cilla Storm works as a crime reporter for a Podcast. She’s temporarily living with her best friend and often has wine with Rosie, her neighbor in Bullholmen. But her relationship with the charming police officer Adam is unclear. Why is he having such difficulty making up his mind?


At her new job Cilla is assigned the task to find out what happened to the socialite Laila Damm, who mysteriously disappeared without a trace in 1988. The tracks lead Cilla back into the archipelago in Stockholm. Meanwhile, the actress Ella Svensson arrives to Northern Ireland to take care of her parent’s estate. She finds something there which will make her return to Sweden immediately.


Cilla and Ella cross paths on a cold and windy day in Bullholmen, and soon the island’s dark secret will be revealed.
