‘Thank god for amazon and my kindle, if it wasn’t for these I would never get to read great books like this.’ Amazon Reviewer.
My debut novel, Truth or Dare?, and the first in the Chesil Series, is published by independent, award-winning publishers, Choc Lit.
Nominated for the 2013 Festival of Romance Best Romantic eBook, Truth or Dare? is a split-era story, which centres on the effect the past has on the present and the future, and how, sometimes, we have to do the wrong thing for the right reason.
It’s a gritty tale, with romance at its heart, a family I’d love to visit for holidays, and an ocean of moral dilemmas, as the title suggests. And for the most part, it is set in Dorset, a county I adore.
Chesil Beach is a favourite place of mine. Every time I hear the Martha and the Muffins song, Echo Beach, I’m transported to a little piece of pebbly heaven – I used to think it was written about Chesil. Echo Beach was one of the first songs I performed live on stage.
Katherine Blair takes centre stage on this occasion, as we follow her over a twenty-one year period. She is a gentle and thoughtful young lady, but as a result of her upbringing, has learned to be resilient, resourceful and determined.
Continuing the ‘stage’ theme, our hero, Declan O’Brien, is a theatre manager. He is all about truth and honesty. And a charming Irish burr.
The question is, if a life is at stake, do you tell the truth or take the dare?
‘Complex themes, great characters and a well thought out plot – this is an excellent début novel. I am sure we will see great things from this author. ‘ Amazon Reviewer.
‘An absolutely brilliant debut! I enjoyed this from start to finish!’ Amazon Reviewer.
Truth or Dare?
Love’s a dangerous game …
Kate Blair’s sick of unrequited love. She’s quietly waited for Mickey for the past six years and finding a compass-carved heart, with their initials scratched through the middle, only strengthens her resolve: no more Mickey and no more playing it safe.
It’s time to take a chance on real love and Declan O’Brien’s the perfect risk. He’s handsome, kind, and crazy about her so it’s not long before all thoughts of Mickey come few and far between.
But old habits die-hard. Kate may have started to forget … but has Mickey?
