The Jubliee Letter

My latest Linford Romance has arrived - I am really pleased with the artwork on the cover.
'The Jubilee Letter' was originally published by DC Thomson Pocket Novels to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - Maggie Seed, the Editor, was looking for a story set at the time of the new young Queen's Coronation but which also included the contemporary theme of the Diamond Jubilee.
The Jubilee Letter is all about a young woman called Avril Garnett, here's the back page blurb:
The letter had been lost in the post for fifty years. But for Avril it solved a mystery, which had unsettled her since the Queen's coronation - when she was young and in love...There had been two suitors to choose from: was Avril tempted by charming Jack or quiet Gordon? Both Jack and Gordon had secrets and it was only when Avril discovered what they were hiding that she had been able to choose a love to last a lifetime.

I had a lot of fun researching Glasgow of the 1950s - the music and fashions and the way the city looked. It was fascinating and the book itself was a delight to write, in fact it's my favourite of the seven pocket novels I've written.

Now it's been published as a Linford Romance and if you'd like to read it, you can request it in your local library. I hope you enjoy reading it.
