Sue received three nominations at the Festival of Romance 2012 (including one for novella Darcie's Dilemma), and is a Katie Fforde Bursary Award winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Sue 10 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Tina Danzey is an artist, the guardian to her three-year-old nephew Jack following the death of his parents and just getting over a break-up with her boyfriend Lee. She goes to Malta for the summer, to stay at the home of her friend Roslyn, whose family run craft workshops and whilst there meets up again with Brad, Roslyn's brother. Situations in the past mean that Brad, also Lee's friend, views her with some suspicion and when Claire, Jack's other auntie, turns up out of the blue it looks as though Tina's summer isn't going to be quite so bright after all. A standalone ebook, originally a serial for The People's Friend, this highlights Sue doing what she does best - pulling together a diverse and well drawn set of characters, inserting them into a believable and fully realised location and seeing what happens. As I've mentioned before, I prefer Sue's novels to her serials (for a variety of reasons: I think she works brilliantly at novel length and they are, in her own words, a bit "hotter") but that shouldn't detract from the quality evident here. The story runs at a great pace, fully engaging the reader and you find yourself quickly rooting for the characters (and she does write children well), whilst luxuriating in the evocative descriptions of a sun-kissed Malta. A great read, ideal for the summer, I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful setting 3 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I particularly enjoyed the characters in this sweet novella. Malta is described so invitingly, that it almost becomes a character itself!
''Tina Danzey has looked after her 3-year-old nephew Jack since the death of his parents.

I enjoyed the setting so much that Malta is now one of my must-visit places.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shallow and disappointing
Probably good as a short story in a magazine, but as an e-book it didn't work. The dialogue was stilted and I wish someone had taken the time to proof read this before selling it... Read more
