Spotlight Book: The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea

The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea | Jennifer Joyce

I'll be throwing one of my books into the spotlight each month during 2022 and next up is The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea



Escape to the seaside this summer! | The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea | Jennifer Joyce


One summer can change everything…

Mae has no time for men in her life! Local vet Alfie might be totally gorgeous but she’s far too busy looking after her young daughter and running her little bed & breakfast by the sea.

Willow is in the middle of building her dream home with her husband, Ethan, when disaster strikes. And with every month that passes she secretly worries that her happy ever after will never come true…

Melody only intended to stay in the bustling seaside town for a few days. But when she meets Hugo – the charming man in the ice cream van – she decides to stay a little longer.

It seems the little bed & breakfast is full of surprises!

The working title of The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea was The Little Bed & Breakfast of Hopes & Dreams



I like to post little 'Book Extras' (like you'd find on a DVD) for my books here on the blog, and for The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea I created a Playlist, put together two quizzes: a book quiz & Which Character Are You?



The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea was my first paperback

Spotlight Book: The Wedding Date

The Wedding Date | Jennifer Joyce

I'll be throwing one of my books into the spotlight each month during 2022 and next up is The Wedding Date.



Delilah's searching for a plus-one to prove she's totally over her ex


Will you…date me?

Delilah James, singleton and smoothie-addict, has six months to find a date for her oldest friend’s wedding. Oh, and to prove to her ex, best man Ben, that she has totally moved on since he dumped her out-of-the-blue nine months, eight days and seventeen hours ago…

So, with her two BFFs playing Cupid, Delilah launches herself into the high-tech, fast-paced and frankly terrifying world of dating. Luckily there’s the hot new guy at work, Adam Sinclair, to practice her flirting on – even if, as a colleague, he’s strictly off-limits!

Yet time’s running out and date after disastrous date forces Delilah to tell a little white lie – and invent a fake boyfriend! But will her secret crush on Adam ruin everything? Does she even care about Ben anymore? And is it too late to untangle her web of lies and take a real date to the wedding…?




'I fell for Delilah's character within the first few sentences. She is huh-freaking-larious' - Kelly, The Blossom Twins






The working title of The Wedding Date was Delilah Explains It All, in homage to the 90s TV show, Clarissa Explains It All

I like to post little 'Book Extras' (like you'd find on a DVD) for my books here on the blog, and for The Wedding Date I put together a playlistquiz and quick intros to some of the characters you'll meet in the book, shared the inspiration behind the book, a book in picturesdeleted text messages between Delilah and her friends and family, and the online dating profiles of some of the characters. I also asked which character are you?

But then she’s invited to the wedding of the year at the enchanting Durban Castle and realises that perhaps bumping into a real-life knight in shining armour isn’t quite as far away as she thought!

Will Emily survive the wedding and walk away an unscathed singleton – or finally find her own happily-ever-after?

Luckily, seriously gorgeous Caleb is on hand to help sprinkle a little magic – and a lot of sugar! Could one night of scrumptious first dates fix Maddie’s heartbreak and save her beloved teashop, too?
