There’s no problem Becky Watson can’t fix. Except her own love life…

Struggling single mother Becky Watson longs to revive her career as a life-fixer, working miracles to solve her clients’ problems, no matter how big or small. Since the birth of her two-year-old son she has been stuck preventing wedding fiascos for the richest and rudest residents of the Comptons, a charming, leafy area of southern England known for its artistic heritage.

So when semi-reclusive local artist Charlie Handren reluctantly hires Becky to fix his six-year creative slump, she’s delighted to set him up with a come-back exhibition and Rachel Stone, the woman of his dreams.

Though they get off to a rocky start, Becky and Charlie soon become close. But as the beautiful Rachel becomes Charlie’s muse, Becky is forced to wonder: will giving Charlie everything he wants mean giving up her own happily ever after?

A heart-warming romance about second chances perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Phillipa Ashley and Cathy Kelly.

Where There’s A Will, There’s A Woman by Mary Mae Lewis @MaryMaeLewis1

Bowen’s Book Publicity is proud to promote….

Where There’s A Will, There’s A Woman

By Mary Mae Lewis

As a teenager, Kath Tyler dreamt of leaving her working-class life behind her and living a more upwardly-mobile one. Born and brought up in the Potteries, she was thrilled to meet gifted engineer, Robert Llewellyn, a schoolteacher based in London.

What Kath had not bargained for though was the eccentric family that she was taking on after marrying Rob: a dotty antiques dealer, a wayward son, a daughter who dabbled in the Dark Arts and a famous Welsh artist – they all tested Kath’s patience and increased her wanderlust.

Intrigued by the promise of a life abroad, the young couple journey to exotic lands; their eventual dream is to be one of the Ten Pound Poms.

Tragedy strikes though and the call of family brings Kath home to the Potteries once more; her shock loss is only tempered by the blossoming of her journalist flair.

Where There’s A Will, There’s A Woman is a powerful and emotional saga that starts in the Swinging Sixties and travels with the reader to the present day. It weaves around the lives and loves of two families who might have been worlds apart, but were brought together by the feisty determination of a Midlands girl, who knew how to smooth over troubled waters.

But… will Kath’s fire and grit be enough to solve two Llewellyn family mysteries?
Time will tell…

Will I Look Good in Plaits? is a humorous diary of observations about life in lockdown by one of the “so-called old and vulnerable”, as the author puts it. Pamela Clarke lives in rural Cheshire, and as a widow she occasionally admits to feeling alone and maybe vulnerable since the arrival of Covid 19, but never old. Her diary relates a variety of adventures, from failing to defrost the freezer and exploring a hundred ways of cooking cabbage to learning the piano on line and puzzling out the provenance of the mystery gifts which tend to arrive on her doorstep.

Reviews:

5.0 out of 5 stars An amusing, nostalgic look on a new way of life during lock-down

I found this little book very amusing at times and also deeply nostalgic at others. If you are of my generation you will be entertained throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars A life in Lockdown

This is a witty, quirky take on how to make the most of the time, well-being and good fortune you’ve been given each day.
A playful tonic. Cheers Pam.
Best wishes

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the read and deserving of five stars.

An honest light hearted read about one persons way of coping during lockdown during the Coronavirus. High praise to the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A laugh a day, literally.

A humorous dairy of lockdown in 2020 that we can all relate to especially those who were told not to leave there homes under any circumstances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Un-putt-down-able!

This will make you laugh, and cry, and think. And then leave you asking for a sequel: a post self- isolation diary? Clarke’s witty and poignant observations surely can’t be confined by the parameters of a pandemic…

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud.

A very funny but perceptive account of life in lockdown. Well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and real

Brilliantly funny and a real life version of 2020 so far

The Awesome Adventures of Poppy and Amelia 

by Maddy Harrisis & Misha Herwin

Poppy and Amelia didn’t set out to be witches. That happened quite by accident, and it’s a secret they must keep from their family and friends.

Then there is Mia, the new girl in class. Pale, strange and deadly serious, she’s in need of a couple of equally weird friends.

Poppy and Amelia are happy to oblige.

Together, the three of them must thwart the plans of the sinister Miss Mortimer and her evil companions.

This is the start of the awesome adventures of Poppy and Amelia!

Treatment has come a long way since early 2000 but they want to do anything they can to raise money for research so that one day a cure can be found.

Where The Silent Screams Are Loudest: A Missing Girl… A Serial Killer… Eleven Long Years… by John Pye @CathedralOfLies

Where The Silent Screams Are Loudest: A Missing Girl… A Serial Killer… Eleven Long Years…

The old police station’s deep basement holds many secrets. Ghosts lurk among the cold case files down there – victims whose stories have never reached their ending – silent screams waiting to penetrate the mind of a lone visitor and invade the imagination.
When teenager Poppy Hunt disappeared on her way home from school in the summer of 2008 detectives were left baffled, the girl had vanished into thin air.
Missing Persons cases are never closed, but after several months with no new leads the enquiry team was disbanded. Ultimately, the file made its way down to the lower levels and became yet another cold case.
Annie Shephard, Poppy’s favourite classmate, now herself a teacher, never forgot her special pal, but memories of those fun filled days were slowly fading. Almost eleven years had gone by when a young face in the midst of her new pupils stopped her in her tracks and threw her back in time.
Livewire private genealogy specialist and self-professed DNA detective, Madeleine Scott, didn’t want to step on detectives’ toes, but knew she’d hit on a clue to the girl’s disappearance.
Detective Sergeant Eve Brenan’s scepticism about Scott turns into jaw-dropping incredulity as the pieces of a terrifying jigsaw slot into place. The spotlight is swung back onto the Poppy Hunt case after eleven long years and it’s soon clear that there’s more than one awful puzzle to investigate.
The world of family tree research joins forces with high-tech forensics and good old-fashioned detective work in an investigation which becomes more chilling with each day.
Stress and anger levels peak as police infighting and ego trips threaten to destroy progress. True to life characters act out their parts as edge of the seat action combines with humour and the possibility of a romance.
An accumulation of horrendous facts bring the story to an action packed and mind jarring conclusion.
