Book Launches and Girls in Red Dresses

This is the cover of my book, Seven Days One Summer, which is coming out on the 7th July!   At first I didn't like the headless woman, but I've got used to her now.  In fact I've grown rather fond of the lady in the Red Dress. So far there is a great review in Tatler magazine, which described Seven Days, as the ultimate summer read. Right now, I'm dithering around wondering whether to have a book launch. I don't want to spend a fortune as I'm not getting a contribution from the publishers.

Seven Days One Summer


This is us almost exactly a year ago on holiday in Connemarra in Ireland - We'd just climbed to the top of Diamond Mountain, which took two to three hours. I love my husband's holiday beard! Can't wait to be wild and free again,  hair blowing, children a bit feral. 

My novel, Seven Days One Summer is out on July 7th but you can preorder on Amazon. Please do. It's a story set in a villa in Italy and it's a good read. I promise. It's the story of friendship, betrayal, unrequited love and ends with a mind-blowing revelation.  Slightly excited, slightly apprehensive. Can't decide whether to have a book launch.
