Despite this being my 5th published full length novel, I admit to being excited, exhausted and very nervous. Thank goodness the bubbly is chilling in the fridge!
But before I slip away to pour a little celebration, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone of you. Your support and kindness during the last twelve months as I traveled down the road writing this book, has been amazing. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Once again, here is the blurb...
Bertie Costain has worked hard all his life in the building trade and now owns his own London-based company. In 1967, approaching fifty and still unmarried he enjoys a playboy lifestyle, but when he meets Kitty, an attractive, wealthy widow ten years his senior, he swiftly proposes.
Swept off her feet, Kitty adores him. The happy couple seem to have it all, but Bertie has a secret. Kitty has no idea their home is mortgaged to the hilt, or that the many expensive gifts he brings her come out of his winnings at roulette. Proud of his apparent success and ignorant of his gambling addiction, she happily loans him large sums of money, ostensibly for his business.
Convinced with each spin of the wheel that his run of bad luck will change, Bertie gambles for increasingly high stakes, falling deeper and deeper into debt until, facing financial ruin and with nowhere to turn, he resorts to fraud. As their lives begin to unravel, Kitty learns the horrifying truth.
In the cold light of day can their love survive the pain and destruction Bertie’s addiction has wrought?
