A new photo pack from Pink Pot means that my images are once again on top form and I am loving the integration of the new images coming through the old ones, from September it'll be all new! BUT I am totally off form as now we have a new guest post from an author partaking in Neverland Blog Tours. Read on for more!
A perfect, feel-good summer read about love, life and family.
One long hot summer. Secrets never stay buried for long…
Portia is determined to restore Buttersley Manor, her family’s crumbling ancestral home, to its former glory. Yet she has a feeling that there are a few forgotten skeletons in the dust-covered cupboards. Jenny has put her life on hold for far too long. It’s time to finally start living and to dig up those hopes and dreams she’s kept hidden all these years – but is she brave enough? Rich is happily married with a beautiful wife and lovely daughter. In fact, his world is perfect until a very unexpected consequence of his past walks through the door… Joe would like nothing more than to travel back in time to when he and Gina were happy. But is it too late to rescue what they once had?
One thing’s for sure, nothing’s ever quite what it seems when it comes to life in the country!
Guest Post: My Cast and Directions for A Summer of Secrets Blockbuster Movie
Portia – played by Ann Hathaway
Ann, darling, remember that poor Portia is on the verge of losing her ancestral home and has no idea what to do to save it. Please look suitably gorgeous, sad and bewildered, all at the same time.
Rich – played by Tom Hiddleston
Gorgeous Tom, Rich’s life was pretty much perfect until an unexpected consequence of his past pops up. He’s not sure what to do about it but bear in mind that some good might come out of it.
Joe – played by a young Aidan Turner
Dear young Aidan – your role is a little bit naughty so I think I should maybe rehearse your part with you – one or two (dozen) times – just to make sure you know EXACTLY what you’re doing. You do have a kind heart, though, and you do your best by your lovely son.
Jenny – played by Caroline Quentin
Caroline – poor Jenny has had a life and a half with her grumpy old mother. But now hurtling towards fifty, she has an epiphany and decides she wants to do something for herself for a change. Please play her with lots of spirit as she does the occasional flounce, and also has a little flirt.
Phyllis (Jenny’s mother) – played by Maggie Smith
Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, what can I say? Just be yourself, don’t like anything or anyone. And avoid change like the plague. You’ll make the perfect Phyllis.
Alice Ross used to work in the financial services industry where she wrote riveting, enthralling brochures about pensions and ISAs that everyone read avidly and no one ever put straight into the bin.
One day, when nobody was looking, she managed to escape. Dragging her personal chef (aka her husband) along with her, she headed to Spain, where she began writing witty, sexy, romps designed to amuse slightly more than pension brochures.
Missing Blighty (including the weather - but don't tell anyone), she returned five years later and now works part-time in the tourism industry.
When not writing, she can be found scratching out a tune on her violin, walking her dog in wellies two sizes too big (don't ask!), or standing on her head in a yoga pose.
