As you can probably tell it’s been nose to the key-board recently. As well as doing edits for the new release, I’m also on the second draft of a new Berecombe book.
The publication of On a Falling Tide took me slightly by surprise. After three years of trying to place it, it came out last week all in a rush!
Here’s the blurb:
It’s the story of Charity, a woman in pieces after the death of the grandfather who brought her up. Having been left some money, she’s at a cross-roads in her life; wealthy but rootless. She travels to Beaumouth, near Lyme Regis, to research her family tree and a tragedy her grandfather only hinted at. A chance encounter with attractive boat builder Matt sparks a chain of mysterious and unsettling events and leads her to uncover the story of a young girl who lived in the village over a hundred years’ before. If you like historical romance and timeslips with a hint of spookiness, it might just be for you.
It brings together lots of my favourite things: the Jurassic Coast, fossils, a tragic love story, a hint of spookiness and a man who’s good with his hands. Matt is my favourite hero so far!
As I hinted at before, here’s my working page for my hero and heroine.
It’s gone through many rewrites and has lived with me for a while. A little darker than my Berecombe café books, it still has a coastal setting and lots of humour.
I love the cover and I really believe in the book so I’m thrilled it’s finally published. If you read it, let me know what you think. I’m always delighted to hear from readers.
