What the back cover says
One summer, property seeker, Serendipity Parker finds herself on the beautiful west coast of Ireland, hunting for a home for a wealthy Irish client. But when she finds the perfect house in the small town of Ballykiltara, there’s a problem; nobody seems to know who owns it.
‘The Welcome House’ is a local legend. Its front door is always open for those in need of shelter, and there’s always a plentiful supply of food in the cupboards for the hungry or poor.
While Ren desperately tries to find the owner to see if she can negotiate a sale, she begins to delve deeper into the history and legends that surround the old house and the town. But for a woman who has always been focussed on her work, she’s remarkably distracted by Finn, the attractive manager of the local hotel.
But will she ever discover the real truth behind the mysterious ‘Welcome House’? Or will the house cast its magical spell over Ren and help her to find true happiness?

‘Catch Me If You Cannes’ is latest book by Lisa Dickenson and is also the full novel of ebook series from a few years ago.
Jess has decided it’s time to get out of her comfort zone and live a little. So when her best friend Bryony, a journalist on a gossip magazine, is sent to cover the Cannes Film Festival, Jess decides to seize the day and go along for the ride. Two weeks of sun, glamour and exclusive entry into celeb-filled parties is just the kind of adventure Jess needs.
Reality soon bites though when Jess and Bryony find they’re staying in a dingy hotel far away from all the action and Bryony’s expenses budget barely covers a glass of local wine. Undeterred, the two women are determined to live like the elite and enjoy one fancy night out to begin their holiday. So what if they have to tell a few white lies along the way? It’s just this once. No harm done . . . right?
Set against the backdrop of the exotic and glamorous Cannes, the story is about Jess and her best friend Bryony who both set off the Cannes Film Festival. Bryony is a journalist and hopes for a big reveal, whilst Jess goes along for a change of scenery. To fit in with some of worlds most elite and famous, the two women have to tell a few lies along the way, to make sure that people believe that they are rich and famous and worthy of their presence at the luxurious event.
I read this series a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed it. The book is filled with witty and funny characters that really made for entertaining reading.
The story is seen solely through the narrative of Jess and this perspective is enjoyable. Jess is a lovely lady with a sharp sense of humour, when she catches the eye of handsome Leo, a boatman who sails around Cannes, they embark on a relationship that makes for poignant and fun reading.
The story is riddled with fun and drama that had me giggling throughout, filled with handsome men and disastrous scenarios, ‘Catch Me If You Cannes’ is a fresh and fabulous story that is the perfect escapism read.
You can buy Catch Me if You Cannes: The Complete Novel from Amazon and is avaiable to buy from good bookshops.
