It’s so hard to keep a secret when you’ve been dying to shout from the rooftops and beg everyone to admire the beautiful cover for your new book.
But, at long last, it’s cover reveal day and we can finally share the cover of our new novel A Forsaken Friend.
It’s the second in our Friends trilogy and the cover of the first one, A Falling Friend, has had a make-over too.
Early feedback from friends, who were given a sneak preview last weekend, has been very positive and we’re hoping both covers will go down a treat with readers too.
And, now, we’re gearing up for the publication of A Forsaken Friend, which will be published by Lakewater Press on March 21.
We pick up the story where A Falling Friend left off with best friends Teri Meyer and Lee Harper both facing changes.
As the book opens things can’t get much worse for Teri: she’s lost her job at the university, as well as the regular allowance from her dad’s factory, and now her ex-best friend has gone and stolen her ex-husband!
Teri decides to hell with them all and heads off into the countryside to spend some time at her brother’s smallholding where the gorgeous and god-like neighbour helps lift her spirits.
But back home in Yorkshire she’s still got newspaper editor Declan, and a guy she calls Duck’s Arse (because of his weird hairstyle), on hold…
The elephant in the room
Meanwhile, her best friend Lee is feeling a bit guilty about falling in love with Teri’s ex-husband.
But, she’s also rather enjoying the fact that, for once, her love life is looking up except for all the elephants in the room – Teri being the biggest – and not to mention Lee’s mother’s views about her dating a twice-divorced man.
In other words, things aren’t as rosy as she first thought.
And now with one family crisis after another, Lee’s juggling more roles – and emotions – than she ever imagined.
So Lee’s beginning to wonder if sharing her life with a man is such a good idea.
A Forsaken Friend is available to pre-order from Amazon.
A Falling Friend is available to buy on Amazon.
