THE HEART MATCH – NEW RELEASE

A long lost jade necklace. One chance to find it. And two hearts at risk.

Izzie Davis might be broke but she will never accept charity. Which is a problem, because the cute guy she met visiting Maple Gardens Assisted Living could solve all her financial woes with a click of his fingers. Keeping her mom’s fees up to date takes almost all her meagre income but she’s seen first-hand what money does to some people. Nothing will change her mind.

Bart Brown inherited more money than he knows what to do with, but the one person he’d love to spend it on happens to be a spitfire who sticks to her principles. The only way she’ll date him is if he promises he won’t ever spend money on her. His generous heart doesn’t quite understand but she is worth the compromise.

When the family heirloom Izzie’s been desperate to buy back for her mom is up for auction, Bart wants to change the rules to help her. But will Izzie’s principles mean more to her than love? Because suddenly there’s more at stake than a necklace.

Part Cinderella retelling, part billionaire romance, and a touch of enemies to lovers… all wrapped up in a clean and sweet contemporary romance with a swoony happy ever after.

Book 1 in a brand new sweet contemporary romance series! About the series: Maple Gardens has the best of care for its residents. Staff who go the extra mile. And a small group of elderly friends who want nothing more than to see their loved ones find romance. Even if it takes a bit of a nudge sometimes. And a whole lot of meddling.

Buy The Heart Match.


DAPH ON THE BEACH – NEW RELEASE

There’s a wedding around the corner, until Randall sniffs out a body in the sea…

The last thing Daphne Jones expects to see as she stands on Rivers End jetty, practicing the ceremony for a wedding, is a body floating by. 

Suspicion falls on her friend Christie when the deceased is identified as an ex-employee, a woman who left under a cloud. Nobody who knows Christie believes she’s responsible – except the police. Roping in best friend, Elizabeth, Daphne sets out to run her own investigation.

Why was the deceased dressed in winter clothing on a summer’s day? And why had she begged Christie to meet her late at night?

With the police about to arrest Christie, Daphne races to find evidence to exonerate her, as well as lead to the real killer. Will the wedding be postponed and the wrong person arrested? Not if Daphne can solve the puzzle in time.

If you’ve read any of the Rivers End books, you’ll love this fun and quirky quick read which features many of the beloved characters such as Christie, Martin, Thomas, Elizabeth and more… not to mention Randall the goldie. 

Daph on the Beach first appeared in the Mysteries, Midsummer Sun and Murders anthology.
