Synopsis

Sometimes your heart’s the only navigator you need

May Starling’s had enough of her demanding career and even more demanding ex. Responding to a ‘crew-wanted’ ad, she follows her dreams of escape only to find herself at sea with red-haired Bill Blythe.

Bill warns May that close-quartered living can create a boiling pot of emotions, but even May is surprised by the heat building up inside the vintage wooden boat. And when May and Bill tie up at Watling’s Boatyard in Little Spitmarsh, May’s determined to test her new-found feelings on dry land.

But May’s dream of escaping her former life is in danger of being swept away when several unwelcome blasts from the past follow her ashore, all seemingly hell-bent on reminding her it’s never that easy to clear the decks.

Available in paperback, large print and audio CD/download in most English speaking countries plus online bookstores. Ebooks available on all the major platforms.

Christine Stovell

Chris Publicity Picture [resize]Winning a tin of chocolate in a national essay competition at primary school inspired  Christine Stovell to become a writer! After graduating from the University of East Anglia, she took various jobs in the public sector writing research papers and policy notes by day and filling up her spare drawers with embryonic novels by night.  Losing her dad to cancer made her realise that if she was ever going to get a novel published she had to put her writing first. Setting off, with her husband, from a sleepy seaside resort on the east coast in a vintage wooden boat to sail halfway round Britain provided the inspiration for her debut novel Turning the Tide and Follow a Star. Turning The Tide was a top 100 Bestseller with Amazon Kindle and spent months in the Top 10 Chart for Adult Contemporary Romance. Christine has also published numerous short stories and articles. Christine lives in Wales. Christine’s novels include: Turning The Tide, Move Over Darling and Follow a Star (July 2014)

    Loved Bill, a hero you could never get enough of. Like chocolate! He is a milk chocolate bar with ginger stems running through to delight the tastebuds and linger on the tongue. Lovely!

    …Author Christine Stovell has penned a lively novel with interesting characters sure to delight many. May’s mother is both unconventional and scrappy. Aiden is the slimy agent you’d expect, using and abusing young talent.

    …Follow a Star” is an enjoyable, light-hearted read.

    Dear Author

    …The Mummy Brigade scene was hilarious and as someone who is very “your child is nice but let him/her stay over there please,” I feel as May and Fi did in the cafe. But then Fi’s sudden realization of the evils of the world to an unborn fetus – soft cheese, shellfish, cat litter boxes is noir-ly comedic.

    All the loose ends get neatly tied up in boat knots. I don’t think there’s a single undotted i or uncrossed t. All are nicely finished off, in ways that make sense and seem to promise happiness but all almost too ship shape and Bristol fashion. Like the nautical terms I threw in?
