This Time Next Year

Author: Sophie Cousens Format: Paperback Release Date: 15/10/2020

The perfect pick-me-up, this book delivers plenty of romance, smiles, and most importantly enfolds you in a lovely satisfying storyline too. Minnie would rather spend her birthday on New Years Day hiding under her duvet, as far as she’s concerned the last and first day of the year is jinxed. Then she meets Quinn who shares her birthday but otherwise appears to waltz through life, and the attraction is undeniable. Sophie Cousens has the most lovely refreshing style, a lightness of touch and sparkling wit walks hand in hand with considerate contemplation and emotion. Travelling back to the past ensured we saw what had affected, shaped and changed these two characters. I loved the ping-pong of little morsels of information, popping up to build a picture that we had access to, but Abbie and Quinn remained unaware of. Missed chances is the main theme here, but there is so much more on offer too, with access to Quinn ensuring this wasn’t just a one way Minnie street. The supporting characters are a lively bunch, with a mixture of personalities and issues keeping things interesting. Romantic, yes most definitely, This Time Next Year is also an amusing, thoughtful, and friendly read too.

How to Get Ahead in Television

Author: Sophie Cousens Format: Electronic book text Release Date: 03/09/2015

September 2015 Debut of the Month and eBook of the Month. An amusing, wicked taste of the television world sits gleefully alongside a teasing romantic story in ‘How to Get Ahead in Television’. With the often calamitous events that befall Poppy, there is just a whisper of the ‘Bridget Jones’ effect at work. Sophie Cousens is a Television Producer and winner of the Love at First Write competition, her inside knowledge makes it feel as though you are eavesdropping on some delightfully naughty insider gossip. Poppy is an engaging lead character, it’s easy to giggle alongside her, encourage her to believe in herself and occasionally raise an eyebrow in disbelief as she muddles through her life. This is a refreshing, entertaining read, full of lighthearted fun with a rather dishy side of romance. ~ Liz Robinson   ‘A fast-paced, laugh-out-loud, romp through an embarrassingly accurate tale of telly folk’ Graham Norton.    Click here to read a blog from Sophie on how she feels to have won the Love at First Write competition.
