My new novel, Mistakes We Make, is due out soon – and my author copies have just arrived! It’s always a really exciting day, because for the first time you see all those words you slaved over doing together under one cover, and hopefully in the right order.
Mistakes We Make is the fifth novel in my Heartlands series, and is a follow-up to People We Love, which came out a year ago (although it can be read as a stand-alone too). It takes up the story of Molly Keir, best friend of artist Alexa Gordon, who was the heroine of the last book. Lexie’s life has moved on apace, while Molly’s is more or less at a standstill. Determined to move on, she accepts the offer of a glittering new job in London – but it means moving away from family and friends. Is it a good move? Only time will tell!
Mistakes We Make is on pre-order on Amazon already. Meantime, here’s a short extract to whet your appetite.
Molly Keir rummaged in her handbag and extracted her glasses.
‘Yum, this looks amazing. Scallops, black pudding, Gravadlax, sole paupiettes. Wow. I didn’t realise how ravenous I was till I started reading!’
Lexie whispered, ‘Molly.’
‘Mmm? What do you think about beef?’
Molly looked up at the note of urgency. ‘What?’
Lexie’s face had turned an odd shade, and her brown eyes had a panicky look about them. She was staring over Molly’s shoulder at the doorway.
Molly shoved her glasses back onto the top of her head and swung round. A woman was walking into the room. She was Asian – Indian perhaps? – and classically beautiful. Her hair fell in thick, shiny tresses halfway down her back, her eyes were dark as treacle and dramatically outlined in black. She was wearing scarlet. Afterwards, that was what Molly remembered most – the stunning silky dress, hugging a perfect figure.
For now, the dress and the woman faded improbably into the background because there was a man behind her. Not just any man – Adam Blair.
