As lots of you know from a previous post, my summer 22 book is called THE SUMMER FAIR, but what you may not know - unless you're a newsletter subscriber - is where it's going to be set. Today, I'm thrilled to be able to tell you not only where we're going next year, but also who we're going to meet when we get there!
So, without further ado, I'm taking us back to...
Beth loves her job working in a care home, looking after its elderly residents, but she doesn’t love the cramped and dirty house-share she currently lives in. So, when she gets the opportunity to move to Nightingale Square, sharing a house with the lovely Eli, she jumps at the chance.
The community at Nightingale Square welcomes Beth with open arms, and when she needs help to organise a fundraiser for the care home they rally round. Then she discovers The Arches, a local creative arts centre, has closed and the venture to replace it needs their help too – but this opens old wounds and past secrets for Beth.
Music was always an important part of her life, but now she has closed the door on all that. Will her friends at the care home and the people of Nightingale Square help her find a way to learn to love it once more…?
I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I had writing this book. Beth is absolutely lovely, Eli is gorgeous and there are a couple of other characters who literally waltzed on to the page with absolutely no prior planning and had me in fits of giggles every day! I hope you'll enjoy getting to know them as much as I have!
