Publishing a new book is always exciting, but deciding on a book description is a huge landmark in the process. This is when the author puts her hand up to the world and says, “This is the story I’m writing.”
Sequel to The Island Affair
My new book is a sequel to The Island Affair, “a gripping family drama set in one of the most captivating holiday islands in Scandinavia”.
It’s the week before Christmas and Alicia, her estranged husband Liam and her ex-lover Patrick, are planning a family celebration. But their ideas of what a perfect Christmas should look like differ somewhat…
There are also a couple of new characters!
Exclusive Sneak Peek
The book isn’t quite finished yet, but I’m nearly there…
While I do battle with the writing, I thought you’d like to read the new book description. I’ve only shown this to my Readers’ Group mailing list, my Nordic Fiction Readers Facebook Group and my cover designer so far, so this is quite an exclusive sneak peek into the new novel for you!
New Book Description
On the Nordic Åland Islands, the festive season is snowy and chilly—yet breathtakingly beautiful.
It’s time for Alicia to enjoy her first Christmas back on her beloved Islands with a new grandchild and family. There’ll be traditional dancing around the tree and sipping mulled wine in front of a cozy fire. But peace is broken by Alicia’s estranged husband, Liam, who springs an unwelcome and devastating surprise. To top it all, her ex-lover Patrick refuses to take ‘No’ for an answer and threatens to disturb the family celebration… Will Alicia find enough goodwill amongst her nearest and dearest to create the idyllic Island Christmas she’s always dreamt of?
Meanwhile, Brit, Alicia’s best friend, returns to the Islands to lick her wounds after a particularly bloody break-up with an Italian chef. When she meets her new boss, the Captain of a Baltic cruise liner, sparks fly. Brit can’t help but fall quickly in love with Jukka, but when she finds out about his murky past, she fears her heart is about to be broken yet again. Are the rumors about Jukka true, or just typical small island gossip?
Journey to beautiful Scandinavia and join the quirky community of the Åland Islands for a Nordic Christmas you’ll never forget!
