Please Don’t Stop the Music
How much can you hide?
Jemima Hutton is determined to build a successful new life and keep her past a dark secret. Trouble is, her jewellery business looks set to fail - until enigmatic Ben Davies offers to stock her handmade belt buckles in his guitar shop and things start looking up, on all fronts.
But Ben has secrets too. When Jemima finds out he used to be the front man of hugely successful Indie rock band Willow Down, she wants to know more. Why did he desert the band on their US tour? Why is he now a semi-recluse?
And the curiosity is mutual - which means that her own secret is no longer safe ...
Darker than most chick-lit offerings, Please
Don’t Stop the Music proves
a compelling story featuring two complex but likeable
Emotionally charged but also full of humour, this is an accomplished debut from a promising new author.

is a good book but I suspect that there will be better to come from
this author as she develops her craft and allows full rein to her
glorious sense of humour. She's got a very good plot here and some
characters you really warm to. It's a couple of days since I finished
the book and I've been wondering
about them, as though they're people that I know. There's a sensitive
hand with disabilities and problems; you can understand why people
hate them, but they don't diminish the characters in your eyes. More
