IF YOU LOVE AN EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER, DON’T MISS THIS COMPULSIVE AND SEXY PAGE-TURNER
Can Evie cure her heartbreak by escaping to a new life in the sun with hot rock singer Jake? Or can Joe convince her one last time that she belongs with him?
Joe is the only man she’s ever loved, since that long hot summer when she was sixteen. But how many lies is too many? Is it time to admit their marriage has fallen apart and they’ve finally reached the end of the road?
Devastated by his latest betrayal, Evie flees to her grandmother’s cottage in the stormy wilds of picturesque Cornwall, to grieve and make plans for an empty future without the man she believed was her soulmate. Alone and vulnerable, she falls under the spell of charismatic Jake who sweeps her head first into an irresistible and steamy affair.
Meanwhile, when Joe comes home to find Evie gone, he’s spurred into action to win her back. But his journey turns into the road trip from hell. Battling his inner demons and the worst weather the UK has seen in years, he has to drive the full length of the country to reach the remote Cornish cottage where Evie is hiding.
He believes he can persuade her to come back. But does he mean it when he swears he’s turned over a new leaf? Can he convince her one more time that he can change? Or has he left it too late to realise he’s always loved her?
Then a single moment of madness causes a tragic accident in a raging storm. An ancient bridge is smashed to matchwood and it seems that any hope of a happy future will be swept away. The old hurts are much too deep and forgiveness seems out of the question.
Yet someone can see the sunshine after the storm and he wants to share it with Evie. But is that what Evie truly wants?
“Engrossing and compelling love story full of realistic challenges and dilemmas. A fantastic rainy day read. I couldn’t put it down!”
A Word from the Author
ANOTHER SUMMER is set in Poldark country, the stormy wilds of Cornwall in the southwestern tip of England. A few years ago, I was there just after unprecedented flooding had wrecked some beautiful old villages. I had to cross a rickety bridge over a raging river. I spotted a shiny new motorbike trapped in the debris. There wasn’t a soul in sight. I started thinking, what if…?
I love a misunderstood rebel character, the bad boy with a soft centre. I wanted to write about someone who says he wants to change and discover along the way if he means it. And then I wondered who would love him enough to put up with that behaviour and still believe in him?
ANOTHER SUMMER is a compelling story about believable characters with realistic temptations and dilemmas. It’s the story of Evie and Joe, who married too young and seem to have lost their way. The story has two parallel threads, the summer when they first met as teenagers and the present day, when Joe is attempting to win Evie back from the charms of sexy rock singer Jake. I hope you enjoy their journey.
