A Li'l Introduction to Mae, Willow and Melody!

As The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea is out next week (eep!) I thought I'd introduce the three main characters, Mae, Willow and Melody.


The book is set in Clifton-on-Sea, a British seaside town where Mae is running her little bed and breakfast on the seafront. Mae is a single mum to four-year-old Hannah, who along with the B&B and her part-time bar work, keeps Mae too busy for any kind of love life. But she's quite happy being single. Or so she likes to tell people...


On the surface, Willow has the perfect life. She and her husband are renovating their dream house on the seafront and she adores running her own upcycling business. But if you dig a little deeper, you may discover a few cracks and realise that looks can be deceptive and her life isn't as rosy as you first thought.


Melody is a visitor to Clifton-on-Sea, briefly stopping by the seaside town as she works on a photography project. She only intends to stay for a couple of days before moving on to the next town, but when she meets charming ice cream-seller Hugo, her plans fly out of the window. But something is holding her back, preventing her from letting go and enjoying her time with Hugo.

The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea

When the three women meet up at Mae's little bed and breakfast, their secrets start to emerge and this summer may just change their lives forever...
The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea is out on 28th June but is available to pre-order now

About The Book

Escape to the seaside this summer!

Mae loves running her little Bed & Breakfast, it’s the perfect place to raise her adorable four-year-old daughter! And no matter how persistently local vet, Alfie, chases her, she just doesn’t have time for men in her life.

Willow is busy building her dream home with her husband, Ethan, but 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 to capture the perfect photo. But when she meets Hugo – the charming man in the ice cream van – she decides to stay a little longer!

One thing is for sure, summer at the little Bed & Breakfast by the sea certainly has a few surprises in store…

Are You On Instagram?

I love Instagram - it's probably my favourite social media platform at the moment! I didn't sign up for a long time as I thought it was just people uploading photos of their food, but it's actually really fun *whispers* and I sometimes upload photos of my food.

My feed consists mainly of books/writing, cups of tea and my dog, Luna, but this month I'm branching out (sort of, these things still creep in there) by taking part in my first Instagram challenge.

I saw Canelo's summery challenge for June and thought it sounded fun, so this month I'm posting a photo corresponding to that day's prompt. These are a few of the photos I've posted for the challenge so far:

I'm looking forward to the rest of the challenge and I'll definitely be taking part in more in the future!
Are you on Instagram? And have you ever taken part in any challenges?
If you are on Instagram, you can find me (and my bookish pics) here

About The Book

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…?
