Every Time We Say Goodbye (eBook)

'Heartbreaking, engrossing, and thoroughly dazzling' - Nina de Gramont, author of The Christie Affai

1955 London. Vivien Lowry's latest play, the only female-authored one in London's West End that winter, has opened to a rapturous reception from audiences. However, the critics' savage reviews soon force its closure and call into question her entire career. So, when the opportunity arises for her to work as a script doctor on a film shooting in Rome's Cinecittà Studios, a world populated with the likes of Ava Gardner and Sophia Loren, Vivien takes it. What she doesn't count on is the greatest male bastion of them all: the Vatican. Caught between powerful church censors and the exciting world of filmmaking, as well as two very different men, Vivien must also face the long-buried truth of the recent World War and what really happened to her soldier fiancé if she's to deal with her past and step into the future.

The Saved (eBook)

Secrets, lies and bodies wash up on remote Scottish shores

She thought his death would destroy her ... but his return was far worse. Nancy and Calder are moving from London to an isolated slate island, off the west coast of Scotland. Nancy is focused on their new beginning, but is increasingly unsettled by the stark island, the mysterious inhabitants and Calder's dark past, which he's kept hidden from her. Then one of Nancy's nightmares plays out in real life: she finds Calder's boat upturned in the bay, his body adrift in the icy water. He's clinically dead with no heartbeat. But miraculously the doctors manage to bring him back to life. Everyone thinks he has made a full recovery, but Nancy doesn't recognise the man who has come back from the dead. As secrets, lies and bodies begin to wash up on the island, Nancy must come to terms with the fact that despite the fresh start, sometimes the slate cannot be wiped clean.
