Miranda Dickinson Reveals New Book called Our Story

Our StoryMiranda Dickinson has revealed her latest book with HQ Stories called, ‘Our Story’.

What the back cover says –

Otty has just landed her dream job. She’s about to join the writing team of one of the most respected showrunners in TV. And then the night before her first day, she’s evicted from her flat.

Joe has been working with Russell for years. He’s the best writer on his team, but lately something has been off. He’s trying to get his mojo back, but when his flatmate moves out without warning he has other things to worry about.

Otty moving into Joe’s house seems like the perfect solution to both their problems, but neither is prepared for what happens next. Paired together in the writing room, their obvious chemistry sparks from the page and they are the writing duo to beat. But their relationship off the page is an entirely different story, and neither of them can figure out why.

And suddenly the question isn’t, will they, or won’t they? It’s why won’t they?

Sounds like another lovely story from Miranda to curl up with up with.

You can pre-order ‘Our Story’ from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 25th August 2020.

Interviews with soldiers who have recently served in Afghanistan, along with an NHS paramedic and extensive research into the origins of the incredibly inspirational Poppy Factory which to this day helps returning soldiers to find work helped Liz to create remarkable characters inspired by real events.

Traumatised by what he has seen, the Alfie who comes home is a different man to the one Rose married. As he struggles to cope with life in peace time, Rose wrestles with temptation as the man she fell in love with seems lost forever.

Many years later, Jess returns from her final tour of Afghanistan. Haunted by nightmares from her time at the front, her longed-for homecoming is a disaster and she wonders if her life will ever be the same again. Can comfort come through her great-grandmother Rose’s diaries?

For Jess and Rose, the realities of war have terrible consequences. Can the Poppy Factory, set up to help injured soldiers, rescue them both from the heartache of war?

A Very Accidental Love Story By Claudia Carroll

A Very Accidental Love Story

“A Very Accidental Love Story” is the ninth book by bestselling Irish author, Claudia Carroll.

Eloise Elliott is the youngest newspaper editor in Ireland, but on the eve of her thirtieth birthday she is hit with a sudden pang of loneliness. Suddenly she realises that she wants someone to spend her life with.

Fast forward three years and she is the adoring mother of the beautiful Lily. Struggling with her high powered job and single motherhood, life can sometimes be a bit complicated especially when Lily starts to ask about her daddy.

Eloise begins to panic and wonder what she should tell the curious little girl. So Eloise deciders to go on a mission to find Lily’s father, after all she chose the perfect donor, so there shouldn’t be any surprises or should there?

“A Very Accidental Love Story” is a heart warming and witty tale that was often a struggle for me to put down. With a delicious cast of unlikely heroes and heroines and an adorable two year old, there was someone to suit everyone.

I have read a few of Claudia Carroll’s book and for the first time she has written a dual narrative, which gives the story an interesting twist as we are able to see the thoughts of both Jake and Eloise as they deal with the sudden changes in their lives.

“A Very Accidental Love Story” is a wonderfully written love story with a twist and will hook you from the very first page. Packed with energy and humour and a beautifully illustrated cover, it’s no wonder this book is currently at the top of the Irish book charts.

You can buy A Very Accidental Love Story on Amazon and other good bookshops.
