Product Description

Product Description

WHERE DREAMS COME TRUE: A YEAR IN THE ARCADE is as addictive as chocolate truffles from the Chocwaves boutique; as sexy as honeymoon lingerie from The Garden of Eden, and as scandalous as a night in Ernesto’s tango studio. And over the course of the first year in the Arcade you’ll soon find that it's a place where dreams really do come true.

Previously released once a month, all twelve episodes are compiled here to create the bubbliest of soap-opera style stories.

Written by six best-selling novelists under the name of Kitty Charles, WHERE DREAMS COME TRUE is a sexy, sassy tribute to the serials that kept readers turning the pages in Dickens’ times – with all the passion, the intrigue and the larger than life characters you could hope for.

So what are you waiting for? Time to sample the delights of Angell’s Arcade!
Step inside…


And if you want more drama, dilemmas and double-dealing, the great news is you can enjoy a bite-sized fix of sex and shopping every month in 2014, as your favourite shopkeepers open their doors for another year of business.


Praise for The Arcade:
'What a treat to lose yourself for a couple of hours in the wonderful world of The Arcade, where you can experience all the thrill of retail therapy without the credit card hangover.' Chrissie Manby

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic! 24 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A compilation of all the previously released Arcade titles (the first year) all in one volume!

A brilliant series to read, Kitty Charles is fantastic and i'm really happy they're continuing this series into a second year!
There is a mix of romance, mystery and thrills while reading this fabulous monthly series.

Totally awesome and long may they continue!

You should really snap this up, you know. I bought all the episodes of 'The Arcade' individually, so look what a bargain this compilation is! This is a fun read - mystery and love and laughter and shopping. You start to feel like you know the characters really well, and it's enjoyable to watch their lives unfold over the course of the year. Download it now, get yourself a cuppa, and put your feet up for a deliciously easy read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly addictive 8 Jan 2014
By Cheryl
Format:Kindle Edition
I became obsessed with each story and how the characters lived their lives. It was so realistic how you could imagine this of a shopping centre. Im desperately waiting for year 2 of the arcade so I can continue my obsession. Perfect for any reader, ones who get phased by longer books might enjoy them as seperate months for each story like I bought. Easy reading but wonderfully so.

I had never read anything by this author before, but have to say I enjoyed the whole book. Different stories about each unit in the arcade, little different to what I would normally read but saying that, kept me entertained.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Eastenders in print form! 28 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After buying the January 2013 episode of The Arcade I was hooked and bought the full novel immediately. The story follows the 12 business who occupy the 13 unit Victorian Angell's arcade in a small seaside town. Each month the owner of one of the businesses takes centre stage and we get to learn about the goings on in the arcade through their eyes.
It was completely addictive and crammed with larger than life characters, dramatic goings on, romance, extra-marital affairs, cross-dressing, a hostage situation, missing children, attempted murder and even a lesbian kiss... Heaven knows how much the insurance must cost to run a business in this arcade!
Absolutely fab, pure escapism and I can't wait to read January 2014 episode to find out what on earth Joan Collins is up to.
Buy it!! Then I've got someone to talk to about it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars It makes you smile 13 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. I ordered it when it was the deal of the day because it looked to be a nice, easy to read, bit of escapism. I was not disappointed, although some of the stories seemed a bit far fetched on the whole it was quite believable and you felt that you got to know most of the characters well they are so well drawn.
If you are looking for something fairly light and frothy, but still has a story good enough to make it hard to put down then this is the book for you.
