The Secrets Between Us: OUT NOW!

My new novel, The Secrets Between Us, is out NOW in ebook format, and the rest of January you can grab it for only £0.99p! (On Kindle and Kobo at least). That’s six months of my life, a lot of swearing, many glasses of wine, a trip to the Alpes-Maritimes, not much sleep, a lot of reading and even more editing, deleting, re-writing and refining for less than a coffee or a fancy croissant!


Here’s the cover blurb:

A gripping mystery with a heart-breaking revelation, The Secrets Between Us is a sublimely satisfying story of lost love, betrayal and the dangers of war. Perfect for fans of Kate Morton’s The Lake House and Dinah Jeffries’ Before the Rains.

High in the mountains in the South of France, eighteen-year-old Ceci Corvin is trying hard to carry on as normal. But in 1943, there is no such thing as normal; especially not for a young woman in love with the wrong person. Scandal, it would seem, can be more dangerous than war.

Fifty years later, Annie is looking for her long-lost grandmother. Armed with nothing more than a sheaf of papers, she travels from England to Paris in pursuit of the truth. But as she traces her grandmother’s story, Annie uncovers something she wasn’t expecting, something that changes everything she knew about her family – and everything she thought she knew about herself…

So if it sounds like something you might enjoy, please do give the ebook a punt. The paperback is due out in April, so physical book-lovers will have to wait until then, I’m afraid. Links below.

As always, it’s an incredibly odd feeling, a new book being released into the world, but so far, I’ve had some great support and reviews from readers and bloggers alike. THANK YOU all!

Now I’m off to work on the next one…

    I’m now reading, w great pleasure, The Confectioners Tale. Recently I read another Paris tale (my passion) which used flashbacks but not nearly as artfully. In fact, I skipped a lot of pages. Yours, by comparison is very well done. I really like your writing style and look forward to reading any other books you write esp about Paris

      Thank you for reading Judith! And for letting me know – it means a lot. Delighted you’re enjoying The Confectioner’s Tale. A lot of Paris research went in to it!

        Dear Laura,
        I can’t imagine a more interesting location to research than fabulous Paris! I was studying all the bridges today in prep for my next trip, my fifth.
        Re:. THE SECRETS BETWEEN US, I contacted my library in hopes of requesting they buy it but was told it’s only available on Kindle. I much prefer a real book. Will it come out at least in paperback eventually? I hope so. When you mention certain streets or Paris neighborhoods, I like to look them up on maps. I adore Paris and love it more each trip. I’ll be spending a month there w friends this September and will be in a new area, right on the line between 6e and 7e, not far from Blvd st Germain. I hope Paris will again be your setting for a future book….Fingers crossed.
        Thank you for your reply.
