Dear friends,

After a year off to write my Stella Knightley trilogy (what do you mean, you haven't read it??), I'm back with a new summer novel.

It's called 'A Proper Family Holiday' and it hits the shelves on June 5th, just in time for your annual escape to the sun.

The blurb on the back goes like this:

'Could you survive a week-long holiday with your entire family?

Newly single magazine journalist Chelsea Benson can't think of anything worse. Your grubby small nephew torpedoing any chance of romance with the dishy guy you met on the plane… Your eighty-five-year-old granddad chatting up ladies at the hotel bar… Getting nothing but sarcastic comments from your older sister, who's always been the family favourite… And all this is before your parents drop their bombshell.

Is a week enough time for the Bensons to put their differences aside and have some fun? Or is this their last ever proper family holiday?'

I hope you enjoy it.

Watch this space for news of a Christmas sequel!

Best wishes,
