Some people crave fame, others can't escape it. When property developer and loner, Jules Stewart, comes face-to-face with her former self grinning back from the front page of Britain's most popular tabloid, escape is not an option. With a new house determined to remain derelict, a nosy village determined to befriend her, and a gorgeous pub owner determined to undress her, life for Jules is difficult enough. But add a famous ex-boyfriend set to ruin her life (for the second time), a newspaper eager to expose her, and everyone she has ever known desperate for their fifteen minutes of fame... Can Jules protect herself from getting hurt again? Or will her perfectly built life crumble at the same rate as her house?
When Laurie is not running after her two young children, her husband, or just plain running, she loves nothing more than disappearing into the fictional world of her characters, preferably with a large coffee and a slab of chocolate cake to hand.
Laurie lives in the heart of the Dedham Vales on the Suffolk/Essex border, and when she in the thick of a character crisis she can often be seen walking around the village chatting (and occasionally laughing) away to herself.
