About Adele Archer
Adele Archer was born in Bethnal Green, East London in the 1970s, the second youngest of six children. Growing up in a council flat in not the most salubrious part of town, she was always a dreamer - and her imagination was the best escape of all. Adele was writing books from the age of eleven - but inventing stories in her head long before that.
Adele spent the majority of her working life as a trained nurse but it was in 2011, after the death of her beloved sister, that she decided it was time that writing novels could no longer just be a secret hobby. Because, in her bitter experience, life was too short for 'if onlys'.
Her first novel, 'International Relations' was released in 2015. Adele writes contemporary women's fiction with an amusing (albeit slightly bitter) take on life and romance. She writes for strong, witty women who want to read about strong, witty women. Oh and men too. And children. And on occasion, goats (strong, witty goats). She also writes an amusing weekly blog, 'Adele Archer Writes'.
Adele now resides in the West Country with her wonderful husband and two amazing daughters. In her spare time, she writes songs and sings, reads voraciously and crams in as many period/costume drama shows as her long-suffering family will allow. She would wear a bustle and a bonnet on a daily basis if she could...
Dee Phillips has endured more than her quota of heartbreak. Still, she has finally fixed all her relationship glitches and secured her 'happy ever after'. Surely it's in the bag this time, right...?
With Felix banned from her life and after giving the complicated and arcane Milo a second chance, her world - already beset with drama - begins to go awry once more. Treachery, revenge, tragedy, love-pentagons (yes, really), it's all going on.
Catch up with our quirky heroine in the thrilling conclusion of the sometimes droll, sometimes heartrending final instalment of the 'International Relations' saga. It's going to be another rollercoaster. You have been warned.
The difficult decision to marry enigmatic Milo Phillips has been made. Her longed-for aspirations of 'family' finally seem to be coming to fruition.
However, insurmountable obstacles are thrown into her path; disapproving family, men, other men - and another woman. Oh, and whatever happened to that missing secretary?
Coloured with humour and heartbreak, 'American Cousins' (the second book in the 'International Relations' saga), paints the picture of hapless Dee's progressively messy life.
Will that happy-ever-after finally come about? Or will jealousy, deception, tragedy and mystery put the kibosh on that little fantasy once again?
But the arrival of enigmatic and brooding Milo Phillips (Lance’s estranged American cousin) changes everything. A single mother now, Dee must decide the course of her uncertain future. Will she venture deeper into her unpopular friendship with Milo and risk the wrath of the Stark family? And what exactly will an idiosyncratic, quirky girl with no real aspirations or talents (other than a smart-mouth) do with her once-charmed life?
Not a run-of the-mill heroine. Not a stereotypical male protagonist. And the combination is refreshingly different. This modern-day classic is an intelligent and amusing, yet bitter-sweet romantic tale.
