Anna has a steady job, a great social life and a recently deceased relationship with unreconstructed hippy Nic. She has never changed a nappy or kissed a baby in her life, and that’s the way she intends to keep things. Until Laura, her best friend, announces she’s pregnant, Nic discovers he has a teenage son from a long-ago relationship and Anna falls madly in love with a man who just happens to come complete with a baby daughter.

Does Anna really want a baby in her life? As broken nights, toys on the floor and the carnage of children’s parties take their toll, she begins to wonder. Then the baby’s mother reappears on the scene…

book-covers-2TIME AFTER TIME

Remember the 80s? The batwing jumpers, the puffball skirts, the dragged-through-a-hedge-backwards hair? Cass Thomson does – from the heavy eyeliner to the hits of Spandau Ballet and Duran Duran, it all feels like yesterday…

Cass is intrigued and a little frightened when she receives an invitation to a school reunion. If she goes, there’s a possibility that she’ll meet Gideon Harker, the boy she adored from the age of 13 with the desperate intensity of first love. From his bleach-blond hair to his punk boots, Gideon was her ideal man, and she’s never met anyone to match him, not even now she’s running a minor stately home and perfectly content with her sports journalist boyfriend Greg.

It’s dangerous to go back and see what might have been: what if Gideon is no longer the romantic, soul-searching, green-eyed charmer she remembers, but a balding, beer-bellied, nine-to-fiver? But Cass just can’t help herself…

Ever since she ditched her control-freak fiancé, Lia Bailey has avoided getting involved with anybody. Whenever a new man appears she can always think of a good reason why he isn’t worth the bother. Then two come along at once to test her resolve. Exciting, dangerous Will Sheridan looks like a Pre Raphaelite hero and isn’t like anyone Lia’s ever met. Justin Salter is handsome, charming and successful. He’s also going to be the best man at Lia’s sister Jane’s wedding. Can either of them break through Lia’s defences?
As well as worrying about whether Will might be an axe murderer and whether she can cope with Justin’s taste in shoes, Lia has to deal with rebuilding her relationship with her mother and her sister in time for the wedding, and with a flatmate who doesn’t seem too concerned about paying the rent. It’s just as well she has the sanctuary of her job as an antiques restorer to keep her sane – until a valuable painting goes missing.

“I shall miss spending my evenings with Lia and discovering all the plot twists, none of which I had flagged. Lia’s a wonderfully conflicted heroine, and the book has such a sweet, sexy hero.” – A reader from US.

Fabulous dialogue… a novel that kept me entertained right to the end.” – Jeannie Zelos Book Reviews

  1. I’ve just finished reading ‘time after time’ and this book could be my life story… We are of the same era, I studied ‘far from the madding crowd’ in English litterature 40 years ago at school in South Yorkshire and I got back in touch with my Gideon last year after 35 years of longing…
    It could interest you to know that I picked up this book in an oxfam bookshop in Uccle, Belgium. 🙄

    1. That’s so lovely to hear, Dawn – it’s completely made my day! I’m so pleased you enjoyed it. I hope your Gideon was/is as wonderful as Catherine’s!
