My sixth novel, a past/present second chance romance set in Orkney, the archipelago of islands off the north coast of Scotland, will be published this August!

Please save a spot on your beach read TBR for Evie and Nikolai’s story, A SMILE IN A WHISPER.

A SMILE IN A WHISPER is a standalone contemporary romance, which takes place in the same ‘Middleton universe’ as all my other books and novellas, but it’s very connected to Say Hello, Kiss Goodbye, so you might want to check that one out first!

It’s romantic and swoony, angsty and a little heartbreaking, and if you enjoyed Christina Lauren’s LOVE AND OTHER WORDS or Carley Fortune’s EVERY SUMMER AFTER, then A SMILE IN A WHISPER is perfect for you!

It also takes you to my ancestral home of the Orkney Islands, and I cannot wait for you to visit the land of endless sea and sky!

What else will you get?

✔️alternating timelines past and present
✔️dual deep POV
✔️first loves, second chances
✔️angst and nostalgic summer memories on a small Scottish island
✔️caretaking trope
✔️Crohn’s disease rep
✔️panic attacks rep
✔️a former child star
✔️seals, puffins, and orcas!
✔️open door steam

The cover and description are still to come, along with the exact release date and pre-order information. I hope to have signups for the cover reveal, so please watch out for that on my social media, specifically Instagram. As an indie author, I’d really appreciate your help getting the word out!
