“There are moments in life that define you – moments from which entire futures are carved out, where you can practically see the universe split into two.”

Becoming a grandmother at thirty-eight may not be ideal, but Stella Hill can cope – just about – because in two weeks’ time she’s getting married to the love of her life. She’s waited over twenty years to finally get her man; Paul Smart is her destiny, her soul mate. But when Stella finds out she’s pregnant – a pregnancy that’s unplanned and unexpected, not to mention inconvenient – she takes it in her stride. Marriage, baby, new adventures on the horizon. It’s not a problem. At least, not for her.

Just how do you break the news of a baby on the eve of your wedding? And what can you do if your plans turn out to be wildly different from the plans of the one you love? As Stella’s dream wedding turns into a nightmare, she learns that sometimes the people we love don’t react the way we thought they would. And maybe sometimes love means letting go.

The Family Trap is the stand-alone sequel to Kindle bestseller Can’t Live Without.

How does it feel to lose everything you own?

Stella Hill is proud of the home she’s created for herself and her daughter. She’s worked hard to buy the very best of everything … But when she wakes one morning to find her kitchen on fire, Stella knows her life will never be the same again.

At least she has Paul to lean on: Paul Smart, owner of Smart Homes, confirmed bachelor and unknowing recipient of a schoolgirl crush Stella never quite got over … When the charismatic John Dean turns up after sixteen years, Stella is determined not to fall for him again. Because now her heart belongs elsewhere. Or does it?

With a boss she’s half in love with, a teenage daughter about to go seriously off the rails, a spendaholic mother, and a house to rebuild, Stella’s problems are only just beginning.

Can Stella put her life – and her home – back together again? And will she ever realise just what it is she really can’t live without?

A Festive Feast!

Today I’m really excited to share with you a brand new anthology featuring one of my short stories. A Festive Feast is a collection of twelve stories, each with a Christmas theme. What’s so great about this book is all the proceeds are going to Cancer Research UK, which is why I was so pleased to be invited to take part. Priced at under £2, it’s a real bargain.

“At Christmas time:
Being dressed up in an elf costume can lead to a funny adventure and romance;
A luxurious engagement party can become an emotional rollercoaster;
Revisiting the past can help you embrace the spirit of Christmas again;
A chance encounter can lead to love;
A stranger’s gift can lead to an unexpected windfall;
A Christmas Fairy can excite and amuse;
A second chance can lead to a better life;
A little Nutcracker soldier can find a family again;
And a little girl can get her Christmas wish.

Blurb:

Clara is happy with her life in Sardinia. She has a wonderful family, great friends, and most of all, Paolo, the boyfriend she adores. Summer is approaching, with its bright promises, and she knows that Paolo will propose soon.

However, things turn out differently: Paolo leaves Clara, when she least expects it. Her whole world crumbles and from that point onwards, things start to take an unusual turn. Clara is approached by Lucilla, a mysterious girl who offers to help. She can win Paolo back for her, but in return, Clara has to fulfil a bizarre request. Nothing makes sense to Clara from then onwards, but she’s prepared to fight to get Paolo back.

But everything comes at a price. How can Clara keep her double life hidden from family and friends? Who is, in reality, Lucilla? Can Clara really trust her? Will the reward justify all the struggles along the way?

A Deal With A Stranger will only be free until Wednesday, so don’t miss out 🙂
