It Started with Hello – Welcome back to Porthgarrion, where love is always in the air

It Started with Hello sees newcomer to Porthgarrion, Laura Clark looking forward to a new start, away from her bullying, overbearing ex-husband. She’s bought herself a flat – a place to finally call her own – and she can’t wait for the freedom her new life will bring. What she’s not expecting is to bump into a total stranger and to fall in love with him the moment he says, ‘Hello…’

Sergeant Rory Quick is lonely. His wife walked out years ago, and his daughter Gemma has just left home. With so much time on his hands, he doesn’t know what to do with himself. He could catch up with friends… or he could fall in love with a total stranger, just because she said ‘Hello…’

Neither of them are looking for love, but when Laura’s flat is burgled, Rory comes to the rescue, discovering a protective side he didn’t even know he possessed.

Will that be enough, though, when Laura’s past comes back to haunt them?

It Started with Hello – Welcome to Porthgarrion, where love is always in the air…

Kit and Summer have known each other all their lives – except they’ve never met.

Having lived in Porthgarrion all her life, Gemma Quick can’t imagine living anywhere else. The quaint little harbour village is simply perfect – even more so with the arrival of PC Tom Hughes. He’s got excellent taste in flowers and looks gorgeous in his uniform… If only her father didn’t dislike him so much…

Tom isn’t so sure about Porthgarrion. It’s nothing like he expected, and while he’s happy to be nearer his mother, he’s not at all sure about the villagers, especially his boss, Sergeant Quick, who doesn’t seem to have a good word to say about him…

But there are benefits… waking up to a sea view every morning, the walk to work along the harbour… and Gemma.

Falling for her is easy, but when he discovers the truth about her, will it be so easy to stay with her… and to stay in Porthgarrion?

Days of Summer: An emotional, uplifting romance for lovers… everywhere

In Days of Summer, Kit and Summer have known each other all their lives – except they’ve never met.

Struggling under the weight of his guilt, anger, and sadness, Kit is incapable of connecting with anyone. He’s closed himself off from the world, buried himself in work, and wrapped his smothered daughter in cotton wool. But a tragic death forces him to return to his childhood home, where he meets the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen, forcing him to question everything that he’s avoided about his life.

The woman is Summer, the ray of sunshine who is exactly what Kit needs to bring him back to life again. Fighting his feelings – and Summer – every step of the way, she vows to help this broken man as best she can… No matter what.

Until one day, he goes too far…

Will Summer ever forgive him? And can he forgive himself?

A note from Suzie…

“Days of Summer was the first book I sat down and wrote from scratch after my husband suffered two strokes. We were lucky: he survived. But our lives changed completely and I wanted to write something about accepting that things don’t always go to plan… that sometimes life just is what it is. And this is that book.”

Never Too Late – a deeply moving story of love, loyalty and second chances.

It was a meeting that only lasted an hour, but it was a meeting that would change their lives. Forever.

To Adam, Jenna was young, beautiful, and shy, and he fell for her so hard and so fast that to him, she would always be ‘the girl’. To Jenna, Adam was perfect… the most handsome man she’d ever seen, especially the striking tattoo that adorned his back, earning him the nickname ‘the wolf man’; at least in her mind. But a series of misunderstandings meant their plans for the following day never happened, forcing them to go their separate ways, to very different lives.

Fifteen years later, Adam has been through a series of relationships, always looking for something ‘more’ and losing a lot along the way. Jenna has come away from her ruined marriage a broken woman, choosing to protect herself behind a wall, burying herself away from life… and men.

What happens when fate reunites them, and they find out who they truly are? Will Adam be able to break through Jenna’s defences and help her see that, even after all these years, after so much heartbreak, it’s never too late to fall in love… again?

A note from Suzie…

“In this, my third stand-alone novel, I wanted to see what would happen to two characters who were brought together for just a brief time – one hour in this case – and then were divided and lived their separate lives, only find each other again many years later.”

Time for Hope – an inspiring, uplifting story, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

In Time for Hope, timing is everything. Especially when you know time is running out…

Time for Hope – Hope Nelson is lonely. After the tragic ending of her first marriage, all she wants is someone to love her, to share her life, and – above all – be committed to her, but she’s starting to think that’s just the stuff of her favourite novels, not her reality. It doesn’t help that she lives in a tiny rural village in Cornwall, where there are no single men under the age of sixty, or that she rents out a beautiful holiday cottage designed as an intimate getaway for couples… Constant reminders that both life and romance are passing her by.

When Logan Quinn takes a last minute booking, arriving alone and looking utterly gorgeous, she starts to think her luck might have changed. Until he reveals he’s recently broken off his engagement… just two days ago.

Looking for a quick escape from his broken relationship, the last thing Logan expects is to meet the beautiful owner of the cottage and fall head over heels. All he has to do is convince Hope to give him a chance, to trust him, and to show her that anything worth having is worth waiting for.

Should be a breeze.

Except all is not as it seems.

Because Hope has a secret and, while they say love is blind, this secret could tear them apart before they’ve even started.

A note from Suzie…

“For my second stand-alone novel, I wanted to create a real, old-fashioned romance. And what could be more romantic than writing letters to the one you love… every, single day?”

Never Say Sorry – a heartbreaking, heartwarming story of love and loss.

Never Say Sorry is a gripping and emotional novel that will stay with you long after you’ve finished the final, moving, pages.

As children, Abbie and Josh are inseparable. Best friends since the age of seven, they grow up in a tiny Cornish seaside village, spending their spare time on the beach and slowly but surely, falling in love, as the years float by in a haze of sunshine and fond memories.

When ambition divides them, though, they’re forced to make tough decisions… decisions that will part them for half a lifetime.

It’s half a lifetime of regret, of wondering, and of contrition, leaving Josh to wonder if he’ll ever find true happiness again, while Abbie comes to realise that there are worse things in life than losing the man you love.

The question is, what will happen when fate reunites them?

A note from Suzie…

“This is my first entirely UK-based novel, set in a ficticious but beautiful village in southern Cornwall, a county where I’ve spent many happy holidays. I hope you enjoy it!”
