The Last Kiss Goodbye

LK:collage:US

Everyone remembers their first kiss. But what about the last?

1961. Journalist Rosamund Bailey is ready to change the world. When she meets explorer and man about town Dominic Blake, she realises she has found the love of her life. Just as happiness is in their grasp, the worse happens and their future is snatched away.

2014. Deep in the vaults of a museum, Abby Gordon stumbles upon a breathtaking find. A faded photograph of a man saying goodbye to the woman he loves. Looking for a way to escape her own heartache, Abby becomes obsessed with the story, little realising that behind the image frozen in time lies a secret altogether more extraordinary.

The inspiration for The Last Kiss Goodbye

The idea for the Last Kiss Goodbye came about when I visited an exhibition to celebrate the first ascent of Everest, put on by the Royal Geographical Society. Every photo on show was amazing, but I particularly loved the image of Sherpa Tensing reaching the summit– I thought it was such an potent symbol of human endeavour and courage.
My husband bought me the photograph for my birthday and we went to pick it up from the RGS. We were allowed to visit the archives, which was a treasure trove of artefacts and photographs. The pictures were so powerful – people going to the jungle, into the desert, up mountains – so many of them risking their lives in the name of discovery and adventure and it got me wondering about the people they left behind – family and lovers who could not be certain whether they would ever see their loved ones again.
I imagined one such image and the basis of the novel was formed.
When I was thinking about the era in which the book was to be based, I knew that I didn’t want to go too far back in time, but it had to be a period when territories were still unchartered and unknown. I chose the early 1960’s because of the intriguing and dangerous backdrop of the Cold War. It meant that my hero Dominic could be suave, rakish and James Bondish!

I wanted to write another book about families – but a family who were at war with one another because of various reasons including jealousy and greed, a little like those great TV shows of the Eighties like Dallas and Falcon Crest.
I decided to set it in the fashion world because I’d worked at a fashion magazine for five years and knew what a gloriously bitchy and intriguing world it was!

‘The hottest accessory this season’ – Elle

‘The perfect read to help escape the every day world with enough suspense to keep you hooked.’
The Sun

People always which ask me which one of my books I like the best. That’s a tough one, but the one I am most fond of is Daddy’s Girls, probably because it was my first. The idea for Daddy’s Girls came about on honeymoon when I wanted a big juicy read for my trip but I had read everything Jackie Collins and Jilly Cooper had on offer. Instead – I bought a biography of the Mitford Sisters, and an idea was formed. I also finished Daddy’s Girls the night before I went into hospital to give birth to my son Fin.
The success of Daddy’s Girls meant that I could give up work and become a full-time novelist, which has been a joy.

‘Had me hooked from start to finish’ – Daily Mail

I’ve always loved great ‘chase’ movies like The Pelican Brief and The 39 Steps and wanted to write a novel that drew on my love of those sort of books and films.
Post credit-crunch – I also wanted to write about someone that had money – but who’d lost it all and had to start again.

The Proposal

Proposal:collage

‘An irresistible page-turner’ – Marie-Claire

1958. At eighteen, Georgia Hamilton is sent to London for the Debutante Season. Independent, and with secret dreams to be a writer, she has no wish to join the other debs competing for a husband. But when tragedy strikes, her fate appears to have been sealed.

2012. Hurrying to meet her lover, Amy Carrell hopes tonight will change her destiny. And it does – but not in the way she imagined. Desolate and desperate to get out of London, she accepts a position as companion to a mysterious stranger, bound for Manhattan – little knowing she is about to unlock a love story that has waited fifty years to be told. And a heart waiting to come back to life…

Debs

As soon as I stepped into the Last Debutantes exhibition in Kensington Palace in 2010 I knew this was the perfect subject matter for a story. I went to tell my editor about it, but because it was a little different to my usual summer reads we decided that it should be a Christmas read – so I had to write it around my novel Deep Blue Sea, which was also due to come out that year. I wanted it to be as authentic as possible so I spent many months doing research on the 1958 Season. As there is a present day story-line as well, involving our heroine Amy accompanying Seventy-something Georgia on a dream trip to Manhattan, I went on a four day Christmas trip to New York to take in the sights and sounds of the city at that time of year.
The paperback version of The Proposal also contains a finishing school guide – with tips similar to the sort the girls would have been taught in 1958.

Deep Blue Sea

DBS:US

Diana and Julian Denver have the world at their feet. With a blissful marriage, a darling son and beautiful homes in London and the country, Diana’s life, to the outside world, is perfect. But nothing is as it seems…

When Julian dies suddenly and tragically, Diana is convinced there is more to it than meets the eye. She calls on the one person she had never wanted to see again – her sister, Rachel.

A former tabloid reporter, Rachel appears to be living the dream as a diving instructor on a Thai island. The truth is she’s in exile, estranged from her family and driven from her career by Fleet Street’s phone-hacking scandal.

For Rachel, Diana’s request opens old wounds. But she is determined to make amends for the past, and embarks on a treacherous journey to uncover the truth – wherever it may lead…

The idea for Deep Blue Sea came about when I read a report about a man who had committed suicide. These are always such tragic stories, especially when the families concerned have no idea why someone they loved, became so desperate that they did something so final and irreversible.
DBS is a look at grief, and the need to have answers. It’s also a story about love, about family and about strength.
It was also a very topical book – as I was writing it the actual Fleet Street phone hacking scandal was unfolding.
