It seems as if I’ve been working on this book forever! Finally, I can announce that the second in my Skimmerdale series will be released in September.
It’s called Being Emerald, and here’s the gorgeous cover designed by the talented Berni Stevens.
Here’s the blurb:
Emerald Carmichael has always been the black sheep of the family so she’s not impressed when fate — in the form of her father Cain’s annoying and grossly misdirected generosity — leads her to act as wedding planner to his former employee Eden Robinson.
To add insult to injury, it turns out that Eden’s fiancé is none other than the gorgeous Eliot Harland, the only man Emerald has found attractive for simply ages.
Emerald, however, has plans of her own, and if that means living on a sheep farm in a remote corner of the Yorkshire Dales, while organising the grand wedding for Eden her father demands, she’ll do it. That’s if the happy couple ever make it to the altar, of course …
But Emerald’s not the only one making plans, and as events unfold that could destroy the Harlands’ lives for good, Eliot and Eden are torn apart.
With their family in crisis and secrets and lies exposed, can peace ever return to Skimmerdale?
I’ll let you know the actual publication date a little nearer the time. I do hope you enjoy this book. It’s been a real labour of love, as I adore Eliot and Eden and the Yorkshire Dales setting. I’m already missing Skimmerdale! And if you haven’t read the first in the series, This Other Eden, why not take the chance now? You can buy it here.
