Current work in progress and a lovely review

 I am currently working on a new book, with no title yet, but it will be about Michelle, Daisy's best friend in Dating Daisy  I always thought it would be fun to write Michelle's story, and I came up with an idea a while back, wrote a first chapter and got side-tracked. Now that I am taking annual leave during our new two weeks lockdown here in New Zealand, I have a week to literally write a rough first draft, with no idea of the plot as such, to discover all that as I go along and hopefully at the end, it will work enough, that I can then go back and work on it and make it really, really good.

The last day is August 13th, so go  here to grab a copy of this romantic comedy, one of my all-time favs. A bookshop owner and an ancient history professor, what's not to love?

Joel has put those painful teenage years behind him, throwing himself into his work, where he isn't judged by his looks. But meeting Daisy Miller is about to change his life in ways he never thought possible. But will Daisy ever believe that Joel can really, truly love her, when she's spent a lifetime feeling second best? LINK:
