I am SO excited today to be able to bring your the cover reveal for Part One of Emily Harvale’s fabulous new four-part serial set in the seaside village of Little Pondale. Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part in revealing this cover.
The book will be published on 10 May and is available for pre-order here. Before I let you have a sneak peek at the gorgeous cover, let’s share some details of the story behind it.
“Mia Ward is amazed to be told she has inherited her great-aunt Matilda’s thatched cottage in the tiny seaside village of Little Pondale – especially as Mia didn’t know she had a great-aunt Matilda.
She’s even more astonished to discover she’ll only inherit the place if she actually lives there for one year. Mia’s a city girl at heart, not to mention she’s afraid of water, so the fact the cottage backs on to a sandy beach, is not, in her opinion, a bonus.
But Mia’s struggling to pay her rent since being fired for inappropriate behaviour at the office party, and her boyfriend’s also dumped her. When her best friend, Ella and Ella’s brother, Garrick offer to help her move and settle in, Mia decides to see this as a new beginning.
It may also be the start of an exciting adventure because now Mia wants to know just who, exactly, was great-aunt Matilda. And she’s determined to find out. But it soon becomes clear that someone is trying to make sure Mia doesn’t stay in Little Pondale….”
Doesn’t that sound intriguing? I’m particularly desperate to know what the ‘inappropriate behaviour’ was that was so bad Mia got fired! I’m going to be reviewing this as part of Emily’s blog tour on the 19th June, so make sure you check in on that date to see what I think of the book.
Now we’ve heard the story behind the cover, but what about the author behind the story?
Having lived and worked in London for several years, Emily returned to her home town of Hastings where she now spends her days writing… and chatting on social media. Emily is a Member of the SoA, a PAN member of the RWA and a Pro Member of ALLi. She’s an Amazon bestseller and a Kindle All Star. Emily loves writing and her stories are sure to bring a smile to your face and a warmth to your heart.
Emily says, “I write about friendship, family and falling in love. I believe in happing endings.” When she isn’t writing, she can be found enjoying the stunning East Sussex coast and countryside, or in a wine bar with friends, discussing life, love and the latest TV shows. Chocolate cake is often eaten. She dislikes housework almost as much as she dislikes anchovies – and will do anything to avoid both.
If you would like to get to know Emily better, you can link up with her on social media via the following platforms:
So, here is the cover in all its glory
