Meet Rosie Howard, as she
launches the first in a series of books based in fictional Sussex town, inspired by Arundel.
Maddy fled the idyllic market town of Havenbury Magna three years ago, the scene of a traumatic incident she revisits most clearly in her dreams. Even so, when she is called back to help at the
Havenbury Arms when her godfather Patrick suffers a heart attack, she is unprepared for the welter of emotions her return provokes. Psychologist and ex-army officer Ben is sure he can help Maddy to
resolve her fears, until he finds himself falling for her, and struggling with a recently uncovered family secret of which Maddy is blissfully unaware. Then Maddy's mother, Helen, arrives and Patrick
himself must confront a few uncomfortable truths about his history and the pub’s future.
From time to time we are lucky to receive authors in to read extracts from their latest publications. All of our guests stay to be asked questions, sometimes provoking some pretty lively
discussions! They are also usually available to sign any books bought on the night, allowing you to take an extra-special purchase home with you.
