There Must Be an Angel
"This lovely book tugged at every heart-string. A treat from start to finish. I loved it!" Valerie-Anne Baglietto When Eliza Jarvis discovers her property show presenter husband, Harry, has been expanding his portfolio with tabloid darling Melody Bird, her perfect life crumbles around her ears. Before you can say Pensioner Barbie she's in a stolen car, heading to the North Yorkshire coastal village of Kearton Bay in search of the father she never knew, with only her three-year-old daughter and a family-sized bag of Maltesers for company. Ignoring the pleas of her uncle, chat show presenter Joe Hollingsworth, Eliza determines to find the man who abandoned her mother and discover the reason he left them to their fate. All she has to go on is his name - Raphael - but in such a small place there can't be more than one angel, can there? Gabriel Bailey may have the name of an angel but he's not feeling very blessed. In fact, the way his life's been going he doesn't see how things can get much worse. Then Eliza arrives with her flash car and designer clothes, reminding him of things he'd rather forget, and he realises that if he's to have any kind of peace she's one person he must avoid at all costs. But with the help of beautiful Wiccan landlady, Rhiannon, and quirky pink-haired cafe owner, Rose, Eliza is soon on the trail of her missing angel, and her investigations lead her straight into Gabriel's path. As her search takes her deeper into the heart of his family, Eliza begins to realise that she's in danger of hurting those she cares about deeply. Is her quest worth it? And is the angel she's seeking really the one she's meant to find?"

About Sharon Booth
Sharon always thought she'd write sagas, having read little else during her late teenage years. However, when she started to write, she couldn't help but see the funny side of everything her characters were going through, which hardly seemed appropriate. In the end, she decided to be true to her own voice, and now writes contemporary romance with a good sprinkling of humour. There Must Be An Angel is the first of four Kearton Bay novels, set in a fictional village on the North Yorkshire coast, inspired by the beautiful Robin Hood's Bay. Sharon is also a contributor to The Write Romantics' anthology, Winter Tales, which was released in November 2014 in aid of The Teenage Cancer Trust and The Cystic Fibrosis Trust. She lives in East Yorkshire with her husband and dog, in a house that seems surprisingly empty, now that her five children have all left home. She is one tenth of The Write Romantics, has a love/hate relationship with chocolate, and is a Doctor Who, Poldark, Sherlock and Musketeers fan, but not at all obsessed.
