Escape to the Riviera the Perfect Summer Read! by Jules Wake

**Lose yourself in the south of France this summer in this fabulously feel-good beach read!** Carrie Hayes has a job she enjoys and a perfectly nice boyfriend. She's sorted. Isn't she? But Carrie's life wasn't always like this. As a young, wild drama student, she married fellow actor, Richard Maddox, after a whirlwind romance. Life back then was full of possibilities, but when Hollywood beckoned Richard, Carrie was left behind. Now an A-list superstar, Richard's life couldn't be more different to Carrie's, so when their paths cross in glamorous St Tropez, she can't help but wonder what might have been. But with lovely, sensible Alan in tow, Carrie knows she needs to do the right thing. The only problem is, Carrie and Richard never quite got round to getting a divorce...Lose yourself this summer on the French Riviera, the perfect read for fans of Lucy Diamond and Jane Costello.

Praise for Jules's fabulous debut 'Talk to Me', published by Choc Lit:

'A heart-warming debut.' - The Bookseller

'Jules Wake's Talk to me is the next wave in chick lit - it is a brilliant novel that is funny, clever and romantic. Not since Sophie Kinsella and Helen Fielding, has there been such a coup d'etat for the genre. If you can only take one book with you on holiday this year- then this is that book.' - Elder Park Book Reviews

'Jules Wake has gifted us with an incredible debut for this story has love, intrigue and danger' - Love of a Good Book

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.
