This really did sneak up on me. Surrounded by bank holidays and writing books for a possible Christmas release, release day came and went. (Those books did include the direct sequel to this. And I'm plotting a new Zander/Isabel book.) Receptionist Kate Dahlbeck accepts the final slot on reality TV show Jack’s House, and takes … Continue reading The House That Jack Built releases

Her entire life revolves around the guest house she runs in Headley Cross with her overbearing twin brother. He even attempts to undermine … Continue reading Sunday’s Child
Naming the character joke continued with this book. After all, we have Liam Page the English teacher so why not Aaron Field the farmer.
