I’m UTTERLY ECSTATIC to let you know that Summer at Hollyhock House will be published on Thursday August 2 2018.
And as if that weren’t enough, it’s now available for pre-order.
Even more excitingly, if you think you can handle any more excitement (not sure I can tbh) at the time of writing it was only 99p so please HOTFOOT IT OVER TO AMAZON RIGHT NOW to snap it up at this most bargainous of bargain prices.
But what’s it all about? I’m so glad you asked. Here’s the blurb, just for you.
An uplifting romantic comedy from a new voice in women’s fiction! Perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley, Debbie Johnson, Jenny Colgan and Holly Martin.
Wow, am I in esteemed company or what? I adore all those authors from the bottom of my romantic little heart and to be compared with any, let alone all, of them, is just beyond flattering. What do you mean you didn’t ask for a running commentary? Point taken. On with the blurb.
One long summer changed Faith forever….
Faith Coombes should have been over the moon when her long-term boyfriend proposed to her. But instead, she broke up with him. Rob was safe, reliable, nice and…boring. Nothing like the only person who had ever broken her heart…
Unable to afford the rent on another flat and desperate for a new start, Faith takes the plunge and moves back to the village she grew up in, returning to the house that holds so many memories for her.
Hollyhock House, the family home of her best friend Minel, also belongs to the boy who meant so much to her all those years ago.
As Faith falls back in love with the sprawling surroundings at Hollyhocks she also finds herself falling all over again for the only person who has truly hurt her.
Can Faith come to terms with her past? Did she make the wrong decision in breaking up with Rob?
Or does her heart really lie at Hollyhock House?
Summer at Hollyhock House is a charming romantic comedy full of lost loves, missed opportunities and second chances. This summer read, perfect for the holidays, will have you laughing out loud in parts, close to tears in others, and above all, championing Faith as she searches for what is most important to her.
So there it is, my debut novel, summarised in 219 words. I can’t tell you how truly, madly, deeply in love with this book I am. I honestly poured my heart and soul into it, and I am so beyond grateful to now be able to share it with you.
