May Book News and Bargains!

Hello, and happy May!

I just thought I’d do a quick blog post to let you know some of my news, in case you don’t subscribe to my newsletter or haven’t spotted my posts on social media.


Book News

I’m pleased to tell you that The Witches of Castle Clair 4, Will of the Witch, is now available to pre-order. It will be published on July 26th and you can reserve your copy here. Here’s the gorgeous cover. Isn’t it fabulous?



Here’s the blurb:


There’s no such thing as coincidence…

The St Clair sisters, Keely, Harley, and Romy are mysteriously invited to an island off the Cornish coast as guests of Meri Kittow – an old lady they’ve never met.

Upon arrival they discover they’re not the only ones to have been summoned, when they meet the Castle Clair family members they never knew existed.

Zephyr Ambrose, leader of the High Council of Witches, has also been invited, and he couldn’t be more dismayed to find himself on a boat with a whole bunch of St Clairs.

It soon becomes clear that although they know nothing about their hostess, she knows a surprising amount about them. Their alarm grows when they discover they’re unable to leave the island. Then three new guests arrive and one of them has worrying news.

The mystery is growing, the clock is ticking, and with the supply of chocolate chip muffins fast running out it’s every witch for herself. The St Clairs need to figure out what’s going on before they all turn feral.

Just who is Meri Kittow? And what does she want from the St Clairs?


It’s been great fun being back in the world of the St Clairs, catching up with Raiden, Iliana, Sirius, Star, Celeste and Sky, as well as grumpy old Castor. It’s also been fascinating meeting new members of the family, Keely, Harley, Romy, and their mother Ewella, and learning where they fit in. I’ll be honest with you, it’s been a revelation to me writing this book, because for the first time ever I hadn’t planned it all out before I started writing. I had a vague idea of who was who, but I’ve had lots of surprises along the way! Will of the Witch will be followed by two more books in this series, and there are plenty of twists and turns to come…


Tuppenny Bridge


I haven’t forgotten about Tuppenny Bridge. I’ve sent book cover briefs to my designer for the first two in the series, and I’m hoping to have the first book up for pre-order as soon as the cover for that is ready. I can tell you now that the first book in the series will be called, Summer Tenants at Monk’s Folly. I’m already in love with Tuppenny Bridge, my gorgeous little market town in the Yorkshire Dales, and I’ve met some fascinating characters there already – as well as bumping into a couple of familiar faces…





Book Bargain

I’d also like to tell you about a special offer. Right now, and for a limited time only, Summer Secrets at Wildflower Farm is on a Kindle Countdown deal, priced at just 99p. The offer is only on this week, so make sure you grab it while you can.



Summer Secrets is the first in the Skimmerdale series and here’s the story:


A lot can happen during one summer in Skimmerdale.

Eden Robinson never imagined, when she accepted a job working for rock star Cain Carmichael, that it would lead her to the Yorkshire Dales and a job as a nanny and housekeeper. Yet the summer finds her living on Wildflower Farm, caring for the three children of farmer, Eliot Harland, under the assumed name of Cain’s wild child daughter, Honey.

A fish out of water, Eden struggles to cope with life in the country, which seems to revolve around sheep, country shows, and the vicar’s wife’s domination of the cake tent. All this while dealing with a jealous family friend, a charming blackmailer, and keeping up the pretence that she’s Honey Carmichael.

But when Eden falls for widower Eliot, things get even more complicated. The man she loves has no idea who she really is, and with the entire charade in danger of collapsing it’s possible she’s left it too late to tell him.

Can she escape the Honey trap in time, or will this sheep farmer realise he’s had the wool pulled over his eyes?

Heartwarming romance, poignant family relationships, plenty of humour, and a beautiful Yorkshire Dales setting.



I’m especially fond of the Skimmerdale books, so I hope you’ll give it a chance if you haven’t already done so. Eliot is probably my favourite of all the heroes I’ve created – but don’t tell the others! (Cary in Christmas with Cary comes a close second if you really want to know.)


That’s all for now. Have a great week!
