The Mistress of Pennington's is one of the favourite books I've written...maybe even THE favourite. I worked so hard on this book and it went through more drafts than any of my other books. I was determined to write a tantalising first part of a series that you, my lovely readers, would love so much that you can't wait for each instalment!
The early reviews on Goodreads have been fantastic with four lovely 5 stars reviews already - I am thrilled! I really hope you download your copy today or tomorrow and spend this glorious sunny weekend reading in the sunshine. Here's the blurb & buy links:
1910 – A compelling tale of female empowerment in Bath's leading department store. Perfect for the fans of the TV series Mr Selfridge and The Paradise.
Elizabeth Pennington should be the rightful heir of Bath's premier department store through her enterprising schemes and dogged hard work. Her father, Edward Pennington, believes his daughter lacks the business acumen to run his empire and is resolute a man will succeed him.
Determined to break from her father's iron-clad hold and prove she is worthy of inheriting the store, Elizabeth forms an unlikely alliance with ambitious and charismatic master glove-maker Joseph Carter. United they forge forward to bring Pennington's into a new decade, embracing woman's equality and progression whilst trying not to mix business and pleasure.
Can this dream team thwart Edward Pennington's plans for the store? Or will Edward prove himself an unshakeable force who will ultimately ruin both Elizabeth and Joseph?
