I am delighted to share that one of my novels has been shortlisted for an RNA Award again.
Life’s a Beach has made the shortlist for the Jane Wenham-Jones Award for Romantic Comedy.
It’s fantastic to be shortlisted for an RNA award for a second time. So many of my favourite authors have won RNA awards – to even be on the same list as them is more than I ever imagined.
Sharon Ibbotson, the Awards Coordinator for the Romantic Novelists’ Association, said, “During a difficult year, people needed escapism and romance more than ever. Our shortlisted authors, chosen by our readers, delivered both. The Romantic Novelists’ Association is proud to celebrate them and their achievement.”
Here’s the blurb for Life’s a Beach:
Sun, sea and inescapable exes…
Peach is excited to hear that her sister, Di, is getting married. Of course, she would have preferred her little sister to be engaged to someone she’s known longer than a week – and the fact that his name is Charles doesn’t bode well – but who is she to judge?! After all, her own love life is non-existent, and who doesn’t love a destination wedding…?
Whisked away to the gorgeous Italian coast, Peach assumes her role as chief bridesmaid and, despite her reservations about the groom, she tries to ensure everything goes to plan.
But weddings are never straightforward affairs… throw in some unexpected guests in the form of ex-boyfriends and one night stands, and soon enough there is more drama than a reality TV show.
Can Peach keep the show on the road, or might she end up in a whirlwind romance of her own…?
