Get ready for fireworks as two women with very different personalities become housemates!
Bex has settled in well into the small town of Abbeyglen. Yes, she misses her housemate Holly, but she has plenty to do what with the setup of the new Caulfield’s café, her blogging and of course her work in Blackwater Financial Services.
Louise is shocked when she arrives in the town of Abbeyglen to find it has changed, everything looks too new and shiny, and who is this person in Holly’s apartment?!
With Bex’s bff heading for domestic bliss, some unwelcome changes in work, and now the arrival of eternally negative Louise, can Bex remain her usual chirpy self or will handbags at dawn, daytime and night-time too bring out a side to her she never knew existed?
(This is book 2 of a series but can be read on it’s own if you are so inclined!)
When and where do you prefer to write?
The only place I can properly write is sitting at a desk in front of a PC, I’m afraid! I can do short sprints on a phone or laptop, but I need the big sturdy block in front of me to properly get into it!
– Do you have a certain ritual?
I do, four times a week I get up between three and four to get a few hours done before the kids get up. I’m not a night person at all and am ten times more productive in the morning.
– Is there a drink of some food that keeps you company while you write?
It used to be coke but it took me some time to realise that when the high of sugar falls, it falls very quickly!! Now, it’s water or orange juice!
– What is your favourite book?
I don’t really have one anymore as I read so many great books (I’m a blogger so am very lucky!) but the ones I recommend the most would be The Other Side Of The Wall by Andrea Mara or The Breakdown by B A Paris
– Do you consider writing a different genre in the future?
Oh I would love love love to write a psychological thriller but my characters are too prone to making jokes or tripping over things, plus I’ve read so many amazing thrillers and know I couldn’t come up with the twists and threads needed!
– Do you sometimes base your characters on people you know?
Not really people I know, just people I see whose personality etc jump out at me for one reason or another
– Do you take a notebook everywhere in order to write down ideas that pop up?
Ugh, no, I wish!! My best ideas hit where I’m driving, in the shower, out for a walk or somewhere else that there happens to not be a piece of paper about. When I do have a notebook-nothing!!!
– Which genre do you not like at all?
I can’t handle gore in anything, so I could read a crime/ thriller/ horror but if it gets too gruesome I find it tough
– If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?
Keris Stainton or Aimee Horton, they both write AMAZING mom lit!
– If you should travel to a foreign country to do research, which one would you chose and why?
I love all the UK books set in Cornwall and so many other beautiful sounding places, plus I’m not a great traveller, so they’d suit!!

About the author
When B R Maycock (Berni to all you lovely people!) isn’t dreaming up vibrant leads for romantic comedies, she’s ingesting books for her blog (https://brmaycock.wordpress.com/), in particular chick lit (her first love!) books, romantic comedies and thrillers. She can also be found playing footie or watching Marvel, DC or Star Wars movies and cartoons in Co. Westmeath, Ireland with her brilliantly out there husband, Keith, and their four epic little men.

She has one goal and that’s simply to make readers smile and/ or laugh (a splutter rates highest;)).
