Escape for the Summer is the story of three young women who head to Cornwall for the holiday season. Each girl is very different yet there are parts of me in all of them and I had the time of my life playing with the multiple narrative structure. This is the book I’ve been longing to tackle for a very long time – a big fat beach read full of sunshine and adventure and with a huge cast of colourful characters – and I loved every minute of writing it.
Escape for the Summer is about friendship, new and old, and how it is often when things seem to be at their very darkest that life carries you away to new and wonderful adventures. I started writing the novel after quite a bleak time and soon my own life started to imitate the story. I won’t give too much away but I also escaped to live in the Caribbean and like my characters I had to let go of everything I knew first. Have I met gorgeous guys, multi millionaires and footballers? Now that would be telling!
I did miss Cornwall very much but writing this book really helped me to cope with being homesick. That probably sounds crazy when I could see the Caribbean Sea from my sofa but there really is no place like home. While I was writing the novel I felt like I was back in Cornwall and I adored being able to write about the places I know so well. I hope my love for the county shines through.
There’s a great story behind this book! It was summer 2011 and I was on the River Fowey when I noticed a hire boat driven by twenty-
I loved writing this book and I was amazed at the response to it. It made number 1 in the Amazon Holiday chart, number 1 in the Contemporary Romance chart and number 16 in the over all top 100 Kindle chart. So many readers have asked for a sequel that I have written “Escape for Christmas” which picks up on the adventures of the girls one year on from the end of the first book. Watch out for the third instalment!
Maybe I need to send Andi, Angel and Gemma off for a Caribbean Christmas? Now there’s a thought! Excuse me while I go and write it down…
The original girls who inspired “Escape for the Summer”
In “Escape for Christmas” I was able to revisit Cornwall again -
I really hope you enjoy catching up with the characters as much as I did. I shed a tear when I finished writing it.
Characters become friends to a writer and there is nothing nicer than popping back from time to time to see what they are up to! When I left Andi, Gemma and Angel at the end of “Escape for the Summer” I had a feeling that this wasn’t going to be the last I saw of them and I was right! So many of you have been kind enough to write and tell me how much you enjoyed their first outing and to ask me whether or not there will be a sequel. Well, I’m thrilled to tell you that the answer is a resounding ‘yes’!
