Sarah Broadhurst's view...

June 2014 Debut of the Month.

A good build-up of tension towards the end of this romance adds a thriller element to it as the dangers of speed-dating is explored. Two girls, flatmates, hold the centre of the story and it is their relationships we follow, plus their working lives. Naturally there is a boy in the middle and all sorts of manipulations and deceit. It is a good, meaty romance with lots going on.

Choc Lit, the publisher of this novel, was the 2012 Publisher of the Year as voted for by the Festival of Romance.

If you like Jules Wake you might also like to read books by Victoria Connelly, Lucy Dillon and Ali Harris.

Synopsis

Talk to Me by Jules Wake

Olivia and Daniel certainly aren't talking the language of love - Olivia has been in love with Daniel forever but, despite her best efforts, they've never been able to get it together. Their relationship has always been a series of mixed messages and misunderstandings and the final straw comes when Daniel mysteriously starts dating her flat-mate, Emily. Hurt and confused, Olivia resolves to forget her heartache with a spot of speed-dating. After all, what could possibly go wrong? One crazy stalker later and Olivia's life is becoming increasingly strange and scary. Can she rely on Daniel to step in when events take a terrifying turn or will their communication breakdown ultimately result in tragedy - ?

About the Author

Jules Wake

Bred but not born in Yorkshire, Jules Wake considers herself an honorary Yorkshire woman and, despite living in the Chilterns, still misses proper hills. She’s always wanted to be a writer and blames this on her grandmother taking her at a young age to the Brontë’s parsonage in Haworth.

Jules' earliest known declaration that she planned to be a writer came at the age of ten. Unfortunately the urge to actually get her backside into gear and write a book didn't revisit her for quite some time after that.

After reading English at the University of East Anglia, she found herself in the glamorous and deeply shallow world of PR, which she rather enjoyed, and spent a number of years honing her fiction writing skills on press releases.

After a twenty year career in the glamorous world of PR, working on luxury brands, she switched profession to give her more time and energy to write. By day she works in a junior school and by night writes romantic comedy and happy ever after stories which are the sort of books she's always enjoyed reading.

Upon completing a creative writing course and finding no local writing group, she set up the Tring Writers’ Circle. As a result it was incumbent upon her to set a good example and actually write, which was rather fortunate as with a genuine allergy to cleaning, she finds writing offers the perfect displacement activity.

Talk to Me is Jules’s debut novel was published by Choc Lit in 2014, and her second, From Italy With Love, published by HarperImpulse was released earlier this year in May and reached the top of the Amazon Kindle Charts. Her third novel, From Paris With Love This Christmas, published by HarperImpulse came out last October. Her next book Escape to the Riviera will be published by Avon in June this year.

She's currently working on Will & Lisa's story, who appeared in From Paris With Love This Christmas.
