My new books finally here and I am so happy to be able to share this with you all first.
Dreams Come Crashing is special, if only because it was so hard for me to finish this book, but I am so proud to be able to finally publish it.
The events happen over a year after the end of A Dance of the Past and you fill find a lot of my beloved characters from the Southwater Stories Series. Adam, Jo, Anna and Tobias are not totally gone, nor are Jamie and Eric!
But this story is not about them, even in their club, The Elysian, is the main frame in which their stories take place. The main characters, Liz and Koushi, meet in slightly dramatic circumstances, but it is in the club that their relationship cements itself.
I could just stick the blurb and move on, but I'd prefer you have a less formulaic, more personal description of the book, so I hope you enjoy a few more details. You can, however, skip all of this and scroll all the way down, to the button which will take you to the Dreams Come Crashing's Amazon page.
Liz, the main character, is a five foot and a bit tall blonde with a penchant for the grunge look and is at a complete loss as to what to do. Her sisters and she have no money to speak of, they've been living in a car for a while and they're expecting to run out of fuel any minute. Tension is high, and Liz explodes into a fight with her temperamental baby sister, Isabel, who everybody calls Bear, while her other sister, Helena, just pretends to ignore them.
Distracted by the fight, she misses a red light and meets Koushi Harper.
Koushi is a twenty-eight year old half Japanese, half British man trying to show everybody he doesn't fit in the mould prepared for him. He is focused, and independent, and knows what he wants.
Until he meets Liz, that is. Because she is nothing like the girls he is usually attracted to. She's definitely nothing like his ex, perfectly delicate, professionally successful, Niko. Liz is messy and she doesn't fit in with his plans.
And yet, every time she's about to leave the room, he finds a reason for her to stay. Or at least, a reason to see her again.
I really hope you all enjoy this story and how the characters come together. Unlike Southwater Stories, this book doesn't have an open ending. The next book will deal with one of Liz's sister, and we will still hear from the characters from Dreams Come Crashing in it, but Liz's and Koushi's story will be resolved to everybody's satisfaction, I hope.
