'A charming story' Lucy Coleman, bestselling author of Summer in Provence 'Full of warmth' Maggie Conway Sometimes the best holidays are the ones you least expect... After a long and turbulent year, Sarah is dreaming of the five-star getaway her sister has booked them on. White sands, cocktails, massages, the Caribbean is calling to them. But the sisters turn up to tatty beaches, basic wooden shacks, a compost toilet and outdoor cold water showers. It turns out that at the last minute Amy decided a conservation project would be much more fun than a luxury resort. So now Sarah's battling mosquitos, trying to stomach fish soup and praying for a swift escape. Life on a desert island though isn't all doom and gloom. They're at one with nature, learning about each other and making new friends. And Sarah is distracted by the dishy, yet incredibly moody, island leader she's sure is hiding a secret.

On a tree-covered bluff overlooking Lake Ontario, a summer camp has been a haven for children for nearly a century. Originally known as the Oswego County Health Camp and then as Camp Hollis, the retreat has brought joy to thousands of campers throughout the region. It was founded by a doctor working to create a summer getaway for children at risk of contracting tuberculosis in the early 1900s. In the 1940s, a family court judge believed deeply in the camp's ability to improve the lives of children from difficult circumstances, establishing the camp and its traditions that carry on today.

Pearls Pills and Vodka Book Excerpt:

Have you slipped on anything lately? Better be careful, you might end up in a retirement community! That’s what happened to Amanda after she slipped on black ice. Her move to Sunny Meadow Retirement Home is smooth enough, and her life continues in a predictable pattern, but this selection of short stories shakes up the perceptions that we might have of retirees and their lives. Who knew that there are gigolos who cater to elderly ladies or that seniors enjoy a bit of intimacy in the afternoon? Romance, mystery, friendship, family, and the irritations of day-to-day life are all part of the mix at Sunny Meadow where residents have perspectives, talents, and connections that are as unique as their personalities. Under the well-intended oversight of Cedric H. Hawkins (aka The Hawk), Amanda, Grace, Olga, and the others create a unique community that illuminates the concerns and realities of aging, all presented with humour and sensitivity. Join the group and share their stories; they will touch you, surprise you, trouble you, and make you laugh—not your ordinary visit to a Retirement Home!

The DI Manx Cases Books One to Three Book Excerpt:

Lose yourself in three chilling mysteries as a Welsh police inspector tackles his first three homicide cases on the Isle of Anglesey. Anglesey Blue Recently transferred from the London Met to the North Wales Constabulary, Detective Inspector Tudor Manx has come to the Isle of Anglesey hoping for a quiet life. But his hopes are dashed when a brutally mutilated body is found crucified to the bow of a fishing boat and he’s expected to solve the case quickly with an inexperienced team. Adding to his mounting problems, Manx’s troubled past returns to haunt him. He left the island after the disappearance of his younger sister, Miriam; a cold case that remains unsolved. Can DI Manx solve the case before the body count rises? How will he cope when he is forced to choose between his family and his duty as a police officer? Doll Face After the body of the first victim, Sian Conway is found, the suspicion quickly falls on her boss, Kimble McLain, and her volatile ex-husband, Liam Fowler. The autopsy soon reveals Sian was eighteen weeks pregnant, and when the coroner finds a religious text hidden in the victim’s liver, Manx suspects this could be the work of a serial killer. The case takes a shocking turn when footage of Sian’s murder is discovered . . . Shadow Soul When RAF drone pilot, Bobbie Matthews, suffers a devastating trauma, it sets in motion a series of events that sets the whole Island of Anglesey on edge . . . After an RAF Base Commander is found dead on a popular tourist beach, DI Manx is assigned to the case and soon discovers the investigation is more complex and sinister than he imagined. Meanwhile, paranoid and wracked with guilt that her actions might have led to the death of her own husband, Bobbie sets out to uncover the truth. But at what cost? And is there a link between Bobbie’s past and the body on the beach? Pushed to his limit, Manx is about to find out . . .

Sweet Sorrow Book Excerpt:

Everyone has that one summer. 'David Nicholls is that rarest of literary creatures: a genuinely brilliant, genuinely popular novelist.' - Stuart Maconie, in New Statesman's Best Books of 2020 'Triumph ... the sense of nostalgia is visceral and intense, almost time-bending' The Sunday Times 'Pitch perfect ... Exquisite ... Terrific ... Very funny' Telegraph THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER In 1997, Charlie Lewis is the kind of boy you don't remember in the school photograph. His exams have not gone well. At home he is looking after his father, when surely it should be the other way round, and if he thinks about the future at all, it is with a kind of dread. Then Fran Fisher bursts into his life and despite himself, Charlie begins to hope. But if Charlie wants to be with Fran, he must take on a challenge that could lose him the respect of his friends and require him to become a different person. He must join the Company. And if the Company sounds like a cult, the truth is even more appalling. The price of hope, it seems, is Shakespeare. Poignant, funny, enchanting, devastating, Sweet Sorrow is a tragicomedy about the rocky path to adulthood and the confusion of family life, a celebration of the reviving power of friendship and that brief, searing explosion of first love that can only be looked at directly after it has burned out. 'The wit and real humour of his other books are here in this lovely rendition of what love is. A great read especially in England over the summer' ***** Reader Review 'What a lovely, beautiful book, full of wistful nostalgia' ***** Reader Review 'I loved this book. I've bought more copies to give to friends and family and will be recommending it to everyone I know who has ever fallen in love' ***** Reader Review 'This is a very special novel, both sad and funny at the same time, with such beautiful writing' ***** Reader Review 'A modern classic' ***** Reader Review
