A Falling Friend: Sue Featherstone and Susan Pape

A Falling Friend (002)

…or, the downward spiral of a faltering friendship.

After spending her twenties sailing the globe, making love on fine, white sand, and thinking only of today, Teri Meyer returns to Yorkshire – and studying.

That’s when she discovers John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester, and poet of all things depraved.

What she doesn’t realise is that even beyond his grave, his influence over her is extraordinary.

To hell with the consequences.

Having gone out on a limb to get her old friend Teri a job at the university at which she teaches, it doesn’t take long for Lee Harper to recognise a pattern.

Wherever Teri goes, whatever she does, every selfish choice she makes, it’s all setting her up for a nasty fall.

But Teri’s not the sort to heed a warning, so Lee has no choice but to stand by and watch.

And besides, she has her own life to straighten out.

A Forsaken Friend: Sue Featherstone and Susan Pape

A Forsaken Friend (002)

…or, dreams, dramas and damned friendship.

Things can’t get much worse for Teri Meyer. If losing her job at the university and the regular allowance from her dad’s factory isn’t bad enough, now her ex-best friend has gone and stolen her ex-husband. Well, to hell with them all. A few weeks in the countryside at her brother’s smallholding should do the trick – and the gorgeous and god-like neighbour might help.

Meanwhile, it’s not as if Lee Harper set out to fall in love with her best friend’s ex-husband. But, for once, her love life is looking up – except for all the elephants in the room, not to mention Mammy’s opinion on her dating a twice-divorced man. Perhaps things aren’t as rosy as she first thought.

A Forgiven Friend: Sue Featherstone and Susan Pape

Forgiven Friend Cover Sml (002)

…or, lies, loss and love, but always friendship.

There’s only one way out from rock bottom and that’s up, and Teri Meyer is finally crawling out from the worse time of her life – no thanks to her best friend Lee. But no matter, she’s finally found love – real love with a real man, a successful man, a man who accepts all her flaws. Teri’s never felt like this before, and yet it’s changing her in ways she doesn’t understand.

Meanwhile, it seems that no matter how hard Lee Harper tries, there’s a battle awaiting her at every turn these days, and she’s tired. And as if she needs extra stress, Teri continues to create constant and unnecessary drama. But Lee’s the only one who knows what’s going on under Teri’s hard, convoluted exterior, and that’s why she’s always been there for her.
