ABOUT THE BOOK
 
 
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 Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea: The Cast

I think it's every writer's dream to see their book adapted into a TV show or film - and I'm definitely no exception. I love 'casting' my characters for the TV adaptation (it's always TV, never a Hollywood blockbuster. No idea why - I just go with it) and here's who I think would be perfect for some of The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea's characters:

I'm delighted to be able to share the news that The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea will be going to print next month [insert happy dance].

After six books, this will be my first paperback so I am MEGA excited! The paperback will be available in Sainsbury's and online from Amazon from 24th August (but you can pre-order from Amazon here) and I can't wait to hold a copy in my mitts!

I've already checked through the page proofs and you can see what the full cover will look like below. Isn't she a beauty?

Summer Reads 2017

For me, romantic comedies are the ideal summer reads. They're light-hearted and fun and perfect poolside/beach/park bench/sunny-spot-in-the-garden reads. This year, I decided I'd like to re-read some of the books on my shelf during the summer. I picked Kiss Him Goodbye (Victoria Routledge), Rainy Days and Tuesdays (Claire Allan) and Snap Happy (Fiona Walker).

 
I've only read Rainy Days and Tuesdays and Snap Happy once before but Kiss Him Goodbye is one of my most re-read books. I keep going back to it time and time again and I love it with every re-read!
 
A trip to Tesco also resulted in a couple of extra books to add to my summer TBR pile. My Sister's Wedding (Vicky Pattison) fell into my basket and I spotted The Angel at No. 33 (Polly Williams) on the charity table on the way out and I couldn't resist!
 
 
As well as the rom coms, I'm also going to be re-reading The Animals of Farthing Wood with my daughters during the school summer holidays. It's my favourite childhood book and I'm looking forward to diving back in and going on an adventure over the summer. My oldest daughter (Rianne) has already read it with me, but it'll be my youngest's (Isobel) first time meeting the Farthing Wood posse. I have my own copy of the book (which is well-thumbed after twenty-four years!) and I've bought new copies for Rianne and Isobel. I hope they love their copies as much as I love mine (and how could they not, especially with the gorgeous new covers - I'm tempted to buy one for myself!)
 
I've been collecting the Farthing Wood Friends magazines on eBay, so we're going to read those as we go along (and photocopying the activities) as well as watching the DVD. I'm unbelievably excited about this, so expect me to share our fun on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook!

If you're still looking for inspiration, I'm just going to slide a sneaky plug in here...

The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea Playlist

 
I love putting together playlists for my books, which are usually the songs that inspired the book or songs I listened to while writing it.
 
While writing The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea, I listened to a huge playlist of summery songs using Spotify. I've picked out some of my favourites to create the playlist. Stick your sunglasses on and enjoy while pretending it isn't raining outside!
