It’s All Greek to Me

by Maggie Aldrich

A humorous romantic mystery, this summer’s new must-read will keep you guessing until the last page…

“I read the whole thing in one day because I couldn’t wait to see what happened!”

Single, thirty-something Emily Potens would just as soon stay on her couch with a pillow over her head than face what her life has become. In a downward spiral of misfortune, she’s lost everything she holds dearâ??her parents, her job, her homeâ?¦even her cat. Falling through the porch of the decrepit sorority house at which she now works is only the icing on the cake. And then she meets Michael, with those deep blue eyes…

Determined to start over, Emily throws herself into her new life. While learning the finer points of adulting, such as how to live on a budget and how to get a man that’s not gay, Emily begins to unravel the mystery surrounding her parents’ untimely deathâ??the catalyst of her own misfortune. But as she gets closer, Emily must ask herself if she’s willing to risk her own life, and a new chance at love, to learn the truth. Because sometimes, digging up the past can have deadly consequences.

“I really enjoyed this sweet mystery romance…moments with sprinklings of humor and silliness make this a great light read for the summer!” – Andrea Johnston, Author of Whiskey & Honey

A Second Chance Summer: Book One of the Coming Back to Cornwall series

by Katharine E. Smith

Alice knows that coming back to Cornwall means she will have to see Sam, the man she fell in love with aged 18. How will he react to her return, and what changes have the intervening ten years meant for them both?

Still recovering from a toxic relationship, Alice realises she has allowed life to become too predictable, while Julie has just ended things with the man she was due to marry. The two friends decide to throw caution to the wind; coming back to Cornwall, where they spent a long, happy summer before life got serious. As they return to the same small flat in the centre of town, and seasonal jobs at the Sail Loft Hotel, Alice harbours both hopes and fears of finding Sam, while Julie is determined to enjoy the freedom she’s been missing.

A lot can change in ten years, though, as their friend Luke – now a handsome, successful businessman – proves. Back in Cornwall himself to spend time with his seriously ill mum, he and Julie form a close relationship. Alice is worried that her friend is making a huge mistake and, all-but-abandoned, starts to spend time with single mum Casey.

Sam, meanwhile, proves elusive but slowly reveals that, although he appears not to have changed at all, the previous decade has been eventful for him, too.

It’s not all about the boys, though. Alice and Julie’s strong, honest friendship will quickly draw you to them. Alice can be opinionated, Julie reckless, but both are quick-witted, funny, warm and ambitious.

The county of Cornwall, famous for its rugged coastlines, glorious beaches and picturesque harbour towns, provides a vivid backdrop for the perfectly paced beginning of this cracking new series.

Is it possible to relive the best time of your life? Alice and Julie are about to find out.

After the Sun, the second book of this wonderful series, is available to buy now. Book Three will be out later in 2018.
