Meet Me At The Melbourne

When Eve first met James in Australia, she thought she’d found a love to last a lifetime. Then the tug of home draws her back to England for good, and James declares he has no intention of coming with her – ever.

Crushed and at a crossroads, Eve is inspired to open an Aussie-style café in the heart of her local community, offering a program of activities for her customers to enjoy alongside their morning latte.

By Christmas, The Melbourne Community Café is a thriving hub serving the best coffee this side of the northern hemisphere, and their little staff of three soon open their hearts as well as their doors to those around them, inviting in a mysterious stranger who threatens all they’ve achieved.

With the local handyman and an amorous Italian restaurateur competing for Eve’s affections, could her inability to let go thwart her second chance at happiness?

Return To The Melbourne

Eve and Thom are getting married.

Well, that’s what Eve had assumed would follow Thom’s proposal. But when presented with the opportunity of a dream wedding by the stunning Italian Amalfi Coast at a mere fraction of the cost, Thom makes it obvious he does not share her level of enthusiasm.

Perhaps it’s because the wedding will be held on the property of a certain roguishly handsome Italian restaurateur, whose intentions towards Eve have previously proven less than honourable?

Meanwhile, The Melbourne Community Cafe is left in the safest of hands. What could possibly go wrong?

The Debutante

Isabelle Worthing is heiress to an old fortune, yet to everyone else she is just a regular teen. That all changes when her estranged grandmother passes away and the family retreat to Worthington Manor for the summer to make the necessary arrangements. When Issy wakes up in 1904, she has one task – to secure an eligible husband, without screwing up her family’s history. 

The Debutante is the coming-of-age story of 18-year-old Isabelle (Issy) Worthing, who travels back in time to the Edwardian era where she becomes immersed in the debutante season with the purposes of securing an illustrious match for the Worthing family and ensuring their continued good fortunes. She is mentored in her pursuit by an astute elderly ancestor named Lady Brampton, her great, great, great grandmother, who shared a similar time-travel experience as a young woman, as did all the first daughters of the Worthing line.

Adrift in her own time and butting heads with her mother, Issy is tasked with securing a match for Lady Brampton that does not alter the trajectory of their family’s history. Her parents want her to marry the eligible Lord Eltham, but Lady Brampton wants her to marry the dashing yet disgraceful Mr Walker. Issy however, is determined to defy all expectations and secure a love match.

The story also follows the romance of Issy’s own mother, Susan, who at 17 had travelled back to 1944 to endure a ‘season’ that was as unrecognisable as war-torn England, leaving its mark on her heart forever and teaching her the value of the unbreakable mother-daughter bond. Her story offers insight into the relationship between Susan and Issy and the dynamics of the Worthing family.

This novel combines the time-travel appeal of Outlander with the nostalgia and intrigue of Bridgerton and the modern-day schoolroom cares of Clueless, topped with a dusting of magic. It is a story that celebrates the progression of women’s liberation from the Edwardian era to today.
