Jennifer2 Well, there has certainly been a huge change in the weather since my last post! Wet grey days have heralded the onset of winter. I have to confess that once the obligatory walks with my dog are over with, I haven’t been  inclined to venture too far afield. It’s been the perfect time to sit in the warmth and read, and I have read some really great books recently.

I started with The Return Journey, a collection of stories by Maeve Binchy, lovely heart-warming tales which I thoroughly enjoyed. After that I moved on to Gamble by Felix Francis who has taken over his father, Dick Francis’s mantle and writes horse-racing thrillers. Felix is really getting into his stride (excuse the pun!) and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It kept me up into the small hours and that doesn’t often happen. Following on from that I read Judy Astley’s It Must Have Been The Mistletoe which was another lovely read.

To have read three books, one after the other, which have been so enjoyable has been something of a miracle and I am hoping my luck continues with the next batch. In the meantime, I am celebrating the release of my latest book, Miracle Under The Mistletoe which will be in the shops in December and is already available from in both print and e-book format. I love the cover! It’s perfect for the story. Take a look and see what you think.


Once again I’ve used my fictional town of Dalverston for the setting and this time the action takes place in the A&E department over the busy Christmas and New Year period. Two years ago A&E consultant Sean Fitzgerald left Molly Daniels broken-hearted. Now he’s back and the reception Molly gives him is frostier than the weather! But this time Sean is determined to reveal the truth about his past.

Walking away from Molly was the hardest thing Sean has ever done but now she’s within his reach once more he never wants to let her go. Could one magical mistletoe kiss be enough to melt her heart and finally show Molly that he’s here to stay?

I loved bringing together two people who love one another but thought they could never be with each other. The fact that the book is set in the beautiful English Lake District was another bonus. I spend a lot of time there, especially in the area close to Ulverston. In fact the name Dalverston is a combination of Dalton-in-Furness and Ulverston!

I do hope you enjoy Molly and Sean’s story as much as I enjoyed writing it. Now I intend to curl up by the fire and read!

Love to you all,
