It’s the big day at last, and although I suspect some of you might have spotted my latest book up for pre-order on Amazon already, today is the official cover reveal day for Summer in Tuppenny Bridge.
Isn’t it gorgeous? I love the colours and the fact that it actually looks as if its set in the Yorkshire Dales, with those beautiful rolling hills behind the cottage, and that lovely stone wall.
Tuppenny Bridge is a picturesque little market town nestling on the lower banks of the River Skimmer, in the stunning Yorkshire Dales, and this is book one in the series. Here’s the blurb:
It’s July in Tuppenny Bridge. The warm air swirls with butterflies and violets tumble from the window boxes of the pretty stone cottages lining the market square. Summer Fletcher – handy barmaid, devoted stablehand and definitely her mother’s daughter – is ready for a lazy summer in the Yorkshire Dales, but fate has other plans…
Summer and her mum soon find their hands full with the arrival of her future stepsister, Frankie – a blue-haired teen firecracker who’s nothing like the sweet little girl they remember. Meanwhile, local vet Ben is struggling – buried under a mountain of responsibility with trying to keep his crumbling family home Monk’s Folly standing, while supporting his reclusive mother and errant younger brother.
When Summer and Ben unexpectedly cross paths in the local bookshop, sparks fly… but despite Summer’s name, it isn’t all sunshine and roses. In Tuppenny Bridge, gossip travels fast, and each of them has their own demons they can’t quite leave behind. Will the weight of their pasts tear them apart just when they need each other the most?
With more than one heart in need of mending, a beloved old horse named Shadow, a missing pair of young lovers, and a family wedding on the cards – it will be a summer that the residents of Tuppenny Bridge will never forget.
A heartwarming love story set against the backdrop of the charming market town of Tuppenny Bridge. Grab a chocolate biscuit and a fresh cup of tea, because this is a tale you’ll want to get lost in.
I hope you like the sound of it! Summer in Tuppenny Bridge is available to pre-order now, and will be published on 16th May. You can pre-order it here. It’s been a very different experience for me, working with a publisher rather than publishing the book independently, so I’m a bit nervous to see how it all works! I’m currently hard at work on the second book in the series, and I’m completely in love with my gorgeous market town and the people who live there. I hope you enjoy your visit to Tuppenny Bridge!
Have a great week.
