Lindsey Kelk Reveals New Book – Incase You Missed It

Incase You Missed It‘In the midst of a pandemic, we have a new book from Lindsey Kelk to help us get through the dark times called ‘Incase You Missed It’.

What the back cover says –

When Ros steps off a plane after four years away she’s in need of a job, a flat and a phone that actually works. And, possibly, her old life back. Because everyone at home has moved on, her parents have reignited their sex life, she’s sleeping in a converted shed and she’s got a bad case of nostalgia for the way things were.

Then her new phone begins to ping with messages from people she thought were deleted for good. Including one number she knows off by heart: her ex’s.

Sometimes we’d all like the chance to see what we’ve been missing…

I can’t wait for this to hit the top of the TBR pile.

You can pre-order ‘Incase You Missed It’ from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 23rd July 2020.

Adele Parks Reveals New Book – Just My Luck

Just My LuckDouble exciting news for fans of Adele Parks as she’s just announced a new three book deal with HQ Stories, as well as her new book for 2020 called ‘Just My Luck’.

What the back cover says –

For fifteen years, Lexi and Jake have played the same six numbers with their friends, the Pearsons and the Heathcotes. Over dinner parties, fish & chip suppers and summer barbecues, they’ve discussed the important stuff – the kids, marriages, jobs and houses – and they’ve laughed off their disappointment when they failed to win anything more than a tenner.

But then, one Saturday night, the unthinkable happens. There’s a rift in the group. Someone doesn’t tell the truth. And soon after, six numbers come up which change everything forever.

Lexi and Jake have a ticket worth £18 million. And their friends are determined to claim a share of it.

After Adele’s previous book called ‘Lies Lies Lies’ was a number one bestseller, ‘Just My Luck’ sounds just as thrilling.
