Author Helena Fairfax and Bargain Books

There are some good e-books on sale over the next few days, if you’re looking for a new read. One that I’m very much looking forward to reading is the new novel from Helena Fairfax, Felicity at the Cross Hotel. This has had excellent reviews and I can guarantee that Helena is a wonderful author, with feel-good stories and characters. Here is a little about the book (great cover!) – can’t wait to see what happens!


Felicity at the Cross Hotel

A romantic hotel in the Lake District. The Cross Hotel is the perfect getaway. Or is it?

Felicity Everdene needs a break from the family business. Driving through the Lake District to the Cross Hotel, past the shining lake and the mountains, everything seems perfect. But Felicity soon discovers all is not well at the Cross Hotel …

Patrick Cross left the village of Emmside years ago never intending to return, but his father has left him the family’s hotel in his will, and now he’s forced to come back. With a missing barmaid, a grumpy chef, and the hotel losing money, the arrival of Felicity Everdene from the notorious Everdene family only adds to Patrick’s troubles.

With so much to overcome, can Felicity and Patrick bring happiness to the Cross Hotel … and find happiness for themselves?

Felicity at the Cross Hotel is only 99p (99c) until 31st August! You can buy it from Amazon UK and Amazon US.

Helena Fairfax is a British author who was born in Uganda and came to England as a child. She's grown used to the cold now, and these days she lives in an old Victorian mill town in the north of England, right next door to the windswept Yorkshire moors. She walks this romantic landscape every day with her rescue dog, finding it the perfect place to dream up her heroes and her happy endings. Helena's novels have been shortlisted for several awards, including the Exeter Novel Prize, the Global Ebook Awards, and the I Heart Indie Awards.

One of my own publishers, Crooked Cat Books, is having a sale from 28th to 31st August when most of their vast array of great books are only 99p (99c)! My Scottish dual-timeline novel, The Highland Lass, is included if you haven’t already read it. It has amassed lots of 5-star reviews for which I’m very grateful – here are snippets of reviews below!

“This is an accomplished novel, where the dual romances are deftly and sympathetically handled.”

“The vivid descriptions of the locations took me there and I could see the landscapes/cityscapes unfold before my eyes.”

“The snippets of Burns’ poetry and the fictionalised account of his lesser known romance with Highland Mary set this book apart from your average romance and added poignancy to the plot.”

“A most enjoyable read with lovely character descriptions, history, and present day all beautifully intertwined.”


The Highland Lass is available on Amazon UK and Amazon US.
