A milestone moment for me today… I saw my first book in print out in the wild!
TIME FOR THE BEACH is now available from Big W and Target stores in Australia (perfect Christmas gift!) 😉
It features the first novel in my Tarrin’s Bay series, THE JANUARY WISH, and also includes novels by Victoria Purman and Eliza Redgold. Thanks to Harlequin MIRA Australia for putting this compilation together!
Here is me looking like a lunatic:
And here is me looking slightly more professional:
And here is the book close up:
And here is… nah, I guess you’ve seen enough! 😉
But I will share with you what each story in this coastal collection is about…
Nobody But Him – Victoria Purman
At the age of eighteen, Julia Jones left her hometown — the small beachside town of Middle Point — with a head full of grand plans. Plans for an exciting life in a town that didn’t involve a main street with only one pub or a particular boy named Ryan Blackburn.
But fifteen years and a lifetime later, Julia’s forced to put her career and big-city life on hold when she returns home to finalise her mother’s estate. Which is exactly where she runs smack-bang into the town’s hero, Ryan Blackburn! The sensible thing to do? Stay the hell away from him and head back to Melbourne as fast as her stilettos can carry her! But instead, Julia finds his offer of a helping hand and a hot body too delicious to refuse.
The January Wish – Juliet Madison
When Dr Sylvia Greene makes an impromptu wish at the Tarrin’s Bay Wishing Festival, it’s the most out of character action she can think of. But her past has been weighing on her mind, and decisions made long ago have far-reaching consequences. A week later, the daughter she secretly gave up for adoption at sixteen arrives in Sylvia’s small coastal town with secrets that can’t be shared. Soon Sylvia’s well-ordered life is soon thrown into chaos. She is no longer alone, and for the first time she feels as if her world is open to possibilities.
Hide and Seek – Eliza Redgold
A little birdie tells Hope Buchanan that American hotel developer Sullivan O’Dare isn’t just in town for a holiday. As the manager of Hot Tropics Bird Sanctuary, Hope has more than a vested interest in protecting natural habitats, and pulls out all the stops to convince Sullivan to come out with her to the WA bush, with its beautiful trees and unique wildlife. But what is initially about saving the Sanctuary soon becomes about finding a connection. Could it be that Hope has finally found the bird of a feather to form her own flock?
To get a copy, head into your local Big W or Target store, where you’ll find it on the shelves (it’s quite a fat book!). It can also be ordered online from Booktopia but will not be officially released until 1st Jan.
Happy reading and Merry Christmas! 🙂
