I have a new Applewell book!

I'm absolutely delighted to share my new Applewell book with you - A Stitch in Time. Isn't the cover simply gorgeous!

I loved writing this story, possibly more than the others (although it's hard to choose a favourite), and I hope you'll fall in love with Gracie and Lucas as much as I did.

It's out on 12th May 2022, in both ebook and paperback.

It’s not just hems that are frayed in Applewell…

Gracie rescues old clothes and cast offs from Applewell’s charity shop, making them into cute and fresh outfits, which she then sells in her little shop. Turning a profit is hard at the best of times, let alone when new arrival Lucas appears…

After running away from the village in his teens, Lucas has finally returned to an uncomfortable amount of fanfare and gossip. His job requires him to streamline homeless charity, UnderCover, and his plans to do so risk putting Gracie out of business.

The pair of them exchange harsh words but when Lucas' niece cuts up his sister's wedding dress, there's only one person he can think to turn to. Along with repairing the dress, will Gracie patch up her relationship with Lucas? Or is that a stitch too far?

A sweet and heartwarming romance full of community spirit and quirky characters, for fans of Holly Martin, Suzanne Snow and Phillipa Ashley.

It's available to pre-order right now - buy your copy here.

If you haven't read any of the others in the series, don't worry because this can be read as a stand alone. But if you do want to dive into the sparkling village of Applewell, the you can find the other two books here:
