More About the Author

Carole Matthews is the bestselling author of more than 25 hugely successful romantic comedy novels. Her unique sense of humour has won her legions of fans all over the world.

Her books, A Cottage by the Sea and Calling Mrs Christmas have both appeared in the top ten of the Sunday Times bestseller list. Her novels Welcome To The Real World and Wrapped Up In You were shortlisted for the RNA Romantic Novel of the Year award. She was also inducted into The Festival of Romance Hall of Fame for her outstanding contribution to romantic fiction.
Carole is a prolific writer of short stories, featuring in several anthologies, and has presented on television. She's also a regular radio guest.

Born in St Helens, Merseyside, Carole has always been an avid reader and dreamed of being a teacher, an air traffic controller, a travel guide or a hairdresser - writer never featured once. Leaving Liverpool for London after a torrid holiday romance in Torquay, she worked as a secretary, an ice-cream lady, a shop assistant and a beauty therapist. It was when she was working in a completely mad holistic clinic that she first thought 'one day I should write a book about this.' She still hasn't got round to it.

Entering a short story competition in Writing Magazine, the first fiction she'd written since being coerced into it at school, Carole - to her and everyone else's amazement - won a thousand pounds! Then - to her and everyone else's amazement - she spent the money, not on shoes and handbags, but on a writing course. The tutor on the course liked what she was writing and recommended an agent who took her on straight away. He sold her first book, which became Let's Meet on Platform 8, a week later.

Previously very unlucky in love, she now lives happily ever after with her partner, Lovely Kev, at Matthews' Towers in the Costa del Keynes. She likes to drink champagne, eat chocolate, bake cake and spends far too much time on Facebook and Twitter.

I love all of Carole Matthews' books and this is no exception. I found this story to be pure escapism for me.I thought this was true to life in my case as there are times when I would like to disappear off to a spa type place for a week even for a change of scene from the humdrum day to day life of bringing up two kids! I could not put the book down until I had finished it, much to the annoyance of my husband. As I read the book it was interesting to see that the readers were kept in suspense wondering whether the main character would go back to her husband or go off into the sunset with her new man. I was glad, however, that there was a happy ending to the book, almost like a fairy tale and that a break from the old routine really does you good.

Thoroughly enjoyable read and many aspects that a man and woman can relate too. However, the main male role disappointed me, maybe because I once knew someone like that!!!!! Teee hee. Strong on the outside but very weak on the inside, hence I found his character weak, even though the woman character did something a bit naughty I still found her to be strong. Recommended read.

Another good story from Carole Matthews.

I managed to read this book from start to finish in less than 24 hours. It was incredibly easy to read and "one more chapter" turned into another 100 pages. I loved the storyline, I think a lot of people go through what happened in the book in that they feel slightly trapped in their marriage and I liked the way the author wrote about it. I really, really enjoyed this book and now I can't wait to read more by the same author.
