Kitty carefully opened the envelope and looked inside. A single sheet lay within. She slid it out and was faced with a list of one hundred names. The names had been typed and were numbered along the left-hand-side from one to one hundred. The list excluded a summary, synopsis or anything to explain who these people were or what the story was. Kitty looked in to the envelope for more but there was nothing. She sank back in her chair.
Should she know what the names meant? Was there a hidden message?
Journalist Kitty Logan’s career is on the brink of ruin. A reporter on the TV news show ‘Thirty Minutes she has been suspended by the network and is facing charges of libel following an ill-researched story.

Kitty not only has to track down and meet the people on the list, but find out what connects them. And, in the process of hearing ordinary people’s stories, she starts to understand her own. The extraordinary can always been found in the ordinary…

‘Every bit as warm and sharp as her debut’ – The Mirror
Helen Merrifield has said goodbye to her philandering husband and her swish West London house, to live in an idyllic country cottage in the heart of a postcard-perfect village in Cornwall.
Putting the past behind her, Helen throws herself into country life and soon makes a new set of eccentric friends. To her surprise, Helen finds herself the love-interest of two very different men: the kind, gentle, desperate-for-love-and-sex Simon, and the darkly enigmatic local historian Piran.
Whilst Helen is getting to grips with her new life, her oldest and dearest friend, Penny, a hot-shot TV Producer, has decided that the village is the perfect setting for her new TV series. When the cast and crew descend, two worlds collide, and Helen is thrown headlong into 5am wake-up calls and temperamental celebrities.
In the midst of all this, Helen stumbles across a forgotten old tin chest full of Edwardian treasures. Who do they belong to? Will the unpleasant historian Piran help her to find out or will Simon have the key?
As Helen finds herself the focus of Simon and Piran’s attentions, it looks like her ex-husband is planning to put in an unscheduled appearance. Will Helen embrace the future, or is it too difficult to let go of the past?
