Sisters Sarah and Molly are close, but they couldn’t be more different. Sarah makes jewellery and is obsessed with all things shiny and glam, whilst Molly is most at home in her white coat and goggles, working in a science lab.
When Molly is put on a new assignment, she’s over the moon. It’s an important, top-secret project - and she has a handsome new boss to ogle when she’s not staring into a petri dish…
But when Sarah finds herself on the painful end of a disastrous break-up, no amount of Ben & Jerry’s or trashy rom-coms can cheer her up. She wants to take a more drastic approach to dealing with her heartbreak, and the one that only her sister - and perhaps a sprinkle of science - can help with…
Is love really a chemistry? Or will Sarah get more than she bargained for?
This is the perfect rom-com to download on to your eReader this summer. The paperback will be released on 17th October 2019.
Already a bestseller, the book introduces you to Emma, the new Mum on the block…
Since moving to the Liverpudlian seaside after her husband’s career change, her life consists of the following: long walks on the beach (with the dog), early nights (with the kids) and Netflix (no chill).
Bored and lonely, when Emma is cordially invited to the exclusive cool school-mums’ book club, she thinks her luck may finally be about to change. But she soon finds the women of the club aren’t quite what they seem - and after an unfortunate incident involving red wine and a white carpet, she finds herself unceremoniously kicked out.
The answer? Start her own book club - for bad mothers who just want to drink wine and share stories. But will this town let two book clubs exist? Or is there only room for one queen of the school gates…?
The winner was announced on the 15th August, and although Luke didn’t scoop the Prize itself, we are immensely proud of our superb, talented client. He was interviewed by Countryfile for BBC Radio and you can catch up here.
Out of the Woods is a searingly honest, fierce and highly original work on sexuality, shame and the lure of the trees.
