I am delighted to announce that today is publication day for THE ISLAND VILLA!
Marisal. A villa on a sleepy Spanish island. A place that time had forgotten. A place of long ago summers, sun-kissed memories and one terrible betrayal …
When Charlotte’s husband James tragically dies, he leaves her an unexpected gift – her grandmother’s beautiful villa, Marisal, on the Spanish island of Formentera.
As she begins to explore her new home, and heal her broken heart in the warm golden sunshine, Charlotte discovers that her grandmother Alba has been keeping secrets about her life on the island. Intrigued by her family’s hidden history, Charlotte uncovers a devastating love affair that put many lives at risk and two sisters torn apart by loss.
Can the heart-breaking truth of the island’s dark history finally be laid to rest? Or will the secrets of the past shake the new life and love that Charlotte is close to finding?

Based on a blend of myth and fact …
This was such a wonderful story to write, a real challenge too at times as I wanted to give a real flavour of the island’s history, and in the end the story became like the island itself, a blend of myth and truth, as I fell in love with Formentera and its beguiling story, particularly the myth around its role in the Inquisition. I really hope you enjoy it!
