Welcome contemporary romance author, Sarah Bennett... *GIVEAWAY*

      What was your first job? Did you like or dislike it? Why? My first job was as a Saturday girl in a Clark’s shoe shop in our local shopping precinct. I enjoyed the camaraderie with the women who worked there – all who were much older than I was. I had a horrible striped polyester shirt I had to wear, I can still picture it! I did enjoy the job as it taught me a great deal about customer service and communication. We had a lot of elderly clients who came in for the orthopaedic sandals, usually after they’d been trudging around the shops for hours so I’ve measured more than my fair share of hot, smelly feet!
2.)              Do you have a pet peeve? If so what is it? Rudeness. I was raised to hold doors, to speak politely to people who are providing me with a service and to let people out in queues of traffic. We seem to have bypassed a lot of the basic manners along the way and that makes me sad.
3.)              Would you describe your style as shabby chic, timeless elegance, eclectic, country or ___­­­_? Scruffy writer! When I’m working it’s normally scrapped-back hair and comfy pyjamas or leggings. I have to dress up for official functions as my husband is in the military, but my rules are never black or navy blue. If I have to wear a beautiful dress then I want to stand out in the crowd so I love bright colours and patterns. I’m definitely not a wallflower.
4.)              Tell me about your book Christmas at Butterfly Cove and where you got your inspiration for it? It’s the final book in a trilogy about three sisters who are all going through a major upheaval/transition in their lives. It started out as a single book, but then Mia decided to tell me all about her sisters and the series developed from there. I always had the key plot issue for Nee and Luke in my mind right from writing the first book so they’re very special to me. It’s about growing up, self-discovery and second chances.
5.)              Who is your role model? Why? I don’t really have a role model, I prefer to have a wide group of friends in my various peer groups – military spouses, romance writers etc. and to attain to the best I see in them.
6.)              How much of your book is realistic? I think it’s pretty realistic in the way it deals with the ups and downs of life. I can only hope there is really somewhere as beautiful as Butterfly Cove out there somewhere.
7.)              What are your ambitions for your writing career? I have been contracted for another three-book series for 2018 and I would like to build and expand on the phenomenal success that Butterfly Cove has been. It’s exceeded all my expectations and given me a taste for success.

8.)              Share one fact about yourself that would surprise people. I have a writing alter-ego who writes very sexy paranormal romance.
Christmas at Butterfly Cove
All she wants for Christmas…
When talented artist Nee Sutherland returns to Butterfly Cove for her sister’s wedding, it’s only a matter of time before she has to face her own bridegroom – Luke Spenser – the man she impulsively married, then left in the middle of the night.
Nee hasn’t picked up her paintbrushes in months, a part of her is broken. She knows Luke might never forgive her, leaving him was the biggest mistake of her life – but could coming home for Christmas be the best decision she’s ever made?
Maybe all she needs is a little Christmas miracle…
A delightfully feel-good festive romance, perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley, Rachael Lucas and Hilary Boyd.

Author Bio
Sarah Bennett has been reading for as long as she can remember. Raised in a family of bookworms, her love affair with books of all genres has culminated in the ultimate Happy Ever After – getting to write her own stories to share with others.

Born and raised in a military family, she is happily married to her own Officer (who is sometimes even A Gentleman). Home is wherever he lays his hat, and life has taught them both that the best family is the one you create from friends as well as relatives.

When not reading or writing, Sarah is a devotee of afternoon naps and sailing the high seas, but only on vessels large enough to accommodate a casino and a choice of restaurants.

Sarah is the author of the Butterfly Cove trilogy, published by HQ Digital UK. You can also look forward to a new series coming in 2018, set in the beautiful seaside town of Lavender Bay.
