THE WESTENBURY NOVELS

Screenshot 2020-04-27 at 18.35.00.pngSo, I’m often asked, are your novels all part of a series and, if so, should they be read in any particular order? 

No!!

The books are all set in Westenbury which is a mythical village in the town of Midhope, half way between Manchester and Leeds, and the same characters do pop up again and again. They can all be read as stand alone novels but, if you’ve not read any of my books yet and fancy doing so, then the following order might be helpful, But not essential!!Screenshot 2020-04-27 at 20.40.58.png

 

GOODNESS, GRACE AND ME

THE ONE SAVING GRACE

 

4d76a18c-c433-4308-b3c5-76794e279e11_4_5005_c       This  continues the story of the three women, but absolutely can be read as a stand alone novel.

My new book out on Thursday May 7th 2020.  I am so excited about this. I loved writing it…it made me laugh so much. Four sisters – two with a secret – and a somewhat zany production of “Jesus Christ Superstar.”

 

A VILLAGE VACANCY

 

Front cover to be revealed!! Out October 22nd 2020

Grace, Harriet and Amanda are back. Or are they? There’s a vacancy in the village. Who has left it? Who will fill it. Again, I’m so excited for readers to get stuck into this. There’s a slight frisson of unease going on…
