When Maureen goes to Blackpool, the weekend starts with her hotel looking decidedly different from the online photographs - and not in a good way! It isn't long before the restful and reflective time she is hoping for rapidly deteriorates.
During a seaside holiday of highs and lows, Maureen becomes addicted to slot machines, has a run-in with a phony psychic, gets more than she bargains for in a seedy bar, puts her hand in a dead jellyfish...
...and somehow finds herself on Blackpool's largest, most feared rollercoaster - The Big One!
A novella of ~23,000 words.
Maureen and The Big One is the third in the Maureen series. The book can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story, but readers might wish to note that there is the occasional reference to the previous book, A Letter for Maureen.
