New year, new book!

Lovely people! A very happy new year to you all. What could be a better way to see the new year in than with a new book?

My latest novel, Million Love Songs, is out in hardback, ebook and audio on Thursday 4 January. I know!

This is a fun book to kick off 2018 and if you’re a fan of Take That – as, indeed, I am – then you’ll get even more out of it. I love the gorgeous spring colours of this cover and hope you do too.

I hope that 2018 will be a fabulous year for you all. Look forward to sharing it with you…

Love C : ) xx


Feel-good and full of emotion, Carole will make your heart sing with this glorious read.

After splitting up with her cheating ex, Ruby Brown is ready for a change. She’s single again for the first time in years and she’s going to dive into this brave new world with a smile on her face and a spring in her step. The last thing she’s looking for is a serious relationship.

Mason represents everything Ruby wants right now: he’s charming, smooth and perfect for some no-strings-attached fun, and yet Ruby can’t help feel that something is missing. Joe on the other hand is kind and attentive, but he comes with the sort of baggage Ruby wants to avoid: an annoyingly attractive ex-wife and two teenage children.

And though Ruby thinks she knows what she wants, is it what she needs to be truly happy? It’s about to get emotional in Million Love Songs.

    I am new to you as an author! Your books look fun!
    Are you a romance novelist with sex scenes and foul language? I do not like to read these types of books and would like to know ahead of purchasing! Thanks Kindly

    Hi Carole,
    Literally just finished Christmas cakes and mistletoe nights. Loved it and can’t wait for the next chapter.
    Waiting on your new one from the library.
    Have enjoyed all your books except the chocolate lovers ones. Couldn’t get into them. Otherwise They all have some fun in them and I can’t put them down.

    I have just finished reading Christmas cakes & Mistletoe Nights, and I wondered is there going to be
    a follow-up to this book. i would love to read what is going to happen to Lija’s baby? and if Fay and
    Danny do have one. I am 85 yrs. old and a widow and do not have a family of my own, and I feel they are my family members, so please keep writing about them. I have been following since I first
    discovered THE CHRISTMAS PARTY AND THE CAKE SHOP IN THE GARDEN. and i don’t mind the swearing and sex that’s real life.
