In a year that’s already had plenty of ups and downs, it’s nice knowing that a major high point is just around the corner. I’ve said this before, and I’m sure I’ll keep on saying it: Julie Houston is one of the best writers working today. Whenever she has a new book announced, my radar immediately starts going off. Bells ring, whistles sound—it’s a whole production. So while I knew she had a new release coming, I was still thrilled to see the official announcement this week. I’m looking forward to visiting her characters, old favorites and new, in her Yorkshire village of Westernbury. The online downside? It’s not out until June. I can’t wait.
Today I’m waiting for…
From the publisher:
Joining the family business was never going to be easy…
Frankie Piccione is done running away from her responsibilities, well for now anyway. Having escaped Westenbury after suffering a shattered heart, it’s time to take up her place on the family board. Piccione’s Pickles and Preserves needs Frankie. Frankie knows she can make the business work. But with her brother Luca and the new, rather attractive, Cameron Mancini watching her every move, she’s going to have to come up with something special to get them off her back and recognising she belongs on the board just as much as they do.
With the help of her Aunt Pam and best friend, Daisy, Frankie is thriving with her new sense of purpose. Until someone from her past walks right back into it…
