Family, friends and colleagues of former Jackson-Stops negotiator Olivia Riley are in mourning after she and her three dogs were killed by a car in London.

Olivia, 41, had worked for the estate agency for nearly ten years before leaving the property industry in 2012 to work for her step-mother, actress and best-selling author Lucinda Riley, who herself died in June last year following a four-year battle with cancer aged 56.

She was most famous for her series of ‘Seven Sisters’ books which have sold millions of copies around the world.

After a period travelling overseas, Olivia worked for Jackson-Stops during the late noughties and then later for an extended period at its Norwich office as a senior neg, where local press say she kept strong links to the area’s property industry despite her career change.

After joining her family’s publishing empire, she had been managing the 13 websites and social media accounts connected to her step-mother’s prolific book-writing output.

But last weekend Olivia was out walking her dogs on London’s Chelsea Embankment near Cheyne Walk including her retriever and two golden labradors when a car veered off the road and killed all four of them.

A 26-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

Caroline Culot, who works for Norfolk agency Brown & Co, told the Eastern Daily Press that: “The tragic news about Olivia will hit all those in the industry.

“I remember Olivia for being so enthusiastic, ambitious and hard working.

“She was so much fun to work with and made visits to new constructions an absolute joy.”
