Whoopee! Today’s the day when A Christmas Gift hits the virtual shelves.
I absolutely love the cover. I can say that without fear of being thought boastful because that’s the part of the book for which I bear no responsibility! And I know I say, ‘I love the cover!’ of all of my books. They just seem to keep getting better.
So, what’sA Christmas Gift about? Here’s the official blurb:
One Christmas can change everything…
Georgine loves Christmas. The festive season always brings the little village of Middledip to life. But since her ex-boyfriend walked out, leaving her with crippling debts, Georgine’s struggled to make ends meet.
To keep her mind off her worries, she throws herself into organising the Christmas show at the local school. And when handsome Joe Blackthorn becomes her assistant, Georgine’s grateful for the help. But there’s something about Joe she can’t quite put her finger on. Could there be more to him than meets the eye?
Georgine’s past is going to catch up with her in ways she never expected. But can the help of friends new and old make this a Christmas to remember after all?
If you’d like a little more: A Christmas Gift is about Georgine, who’s trying to ignore her ex-boyfriend’s debt collectors at her door, help her sister in the immediate aftermath of relationship’s end and her dad cope with life after a series of strokes. It includes musicians, dancers, actors and a rock band but, with apologies to animal-loving readers, no ponies, owls, dogs or cats. Regular readers of my Middledip books may wonder where in a small village I could shoehorn a performing arts college. Well, it’s easy. I just took the property where the shady characters lurked in Is This Love? and developed the site a bit! Anything is possible when you’re an author. There’s also a new road at Bankside (an estate also known as Little Dallas) and you get to see a few characters from earlier books, like Carola, Ratty, Tess, Ben and Alexia.
For regular Middledip readers, in My Weekly in early December you’ll be able to read a bit more about Tubb at the pub and the barmaid, Janice! I’ve always wanted to know more about them, so, again, anything being possible for an author, I decided to find out.
I’m already thinking about my Christmas 2019 book, when Tubb goes to Switzerland and we get a relief manager at The Three Fishes …
