Book of the Month June 2012

It's always exciting to see a new author making it into print. This month, I'm delighted to congratulate Linda Mitchelmore, whose debut novel To Turn Full Circle is published by award-winning independent Choc Lit. A story set in Linda's home county of Devon, this is the first novel in a trilogy featuring Emma Le Goff and her descendants.

The trilogy begins in 1909, when Emma's mother and brother die in mysterious circumstances and Emma is left alone in a hostile world. Devon might be a beautiful county, but at the beginning of the twentieth century life there was hard for ordinary people. Emma finds an ally in handsome Seth Jago, her landlord's son. But fisherman Matthew Caunter is attracted to Emma, too - and this makes Seth very jealous.

Linda has written a wonderful love story which also features an intriguing mystery. It's certain to become another Choc Lit success!
