It’s publication day for Summer at my Sister’s!!!
What they say: Twin sisters. One scorching summer. A bucketful of secrets.
Diana’s life is perfect. Her twin sister, Josie’s–not so much. Diana has a rich and successful husband, two talented youngsters and an adorable dog. She always looks as if she’s stepped from the cover of a magazine. Her immaculate second home by the sea, for idyllic summers with her perfect family, was actually featured in one.
Josie has a messy, compact flat, dates, but not relationships, and she can’t even keep a house plant alive. She moves from job to job, goes clubbing with her friends and often looks as if she’s fallenthrough a hedge. Although Josie loves Diana deeply, each year she declines the invitation to spend the summer withher sister. Or any other familyholiday. Because Josie has a secret.But is Diana’s life so perfect? Or is she also hiding something? When secrets are revealed this summer, everything will change. Josie could finally have the life she’s always wanted … if she’s brave enough to take a chance.
An exciting update from Emily Harvale!!!
I apologise if you haven’t seen me on social media very much recently but I’ve been exceptionally busy working on lots of exciting stuff (technical term) for my new book, my website … and a map for my new series of standalone stories set in the tiny village of Seahorse Harbour. The map will ‘go live’ on July 31st, publication day for the first in the series, which is … yep, you guessed it, Summer at my sister’s.
Let me explain a bit more. Summer at my sister’s was originally a standalone, but then I had an idea for a Christmas book, so it became a two-book series, with Book 2 featuring a couple of new characters and most of the characters from Summer at my sister’s (with me so far?) ……Then …. I had an idea for another completely separate story set in the same village (which I’m writing at the mo.) This one has new characters. So now, each story in this series will be a standalone with new characters … but as each book is set in Seahorse Harbour, you’ll be able to ‘see’ what’s going on with the characters from the previousbooks, because you can’t help but bump into people in a tiny village, can you?
I have to say, I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!I’ve got so many story ideas, although I’ve only written 2 of the books so far, Summer at my sister’s and the Christmas book, which is called …..Wait for it……(no, that’s not the title) Christmas at Aunt Elsie’s This Christmas book will be available for pre-order from early August.
Did I mention that I love this series? And yes-I’m just a little bit over-excited. I can’t wait to share these fabulously feel-good stories with you. I hope you’re a little bit excited too. xxx
I totally am here, cannot WAIT to get stuck in, but here’s an extract in the meantime. Back to Emily!!
