From the Publisher
Thank you so much for looking at one of my books on Amazon and a very warm welcome to two gorgeous Yorkshire settings: Whitsborough Bay on the North Yorkshire coast and Hedgehog Hollow on the Yorkshire Wolds.
I write uplifting stories of love and friendship. You’ll meet some new friends who’ll raise a smile and perhaps draw a few tears. I adore my characters so, if you do find yourself reaching for the tissues, don't worry because I promise I will never leave them without a heartwarming happy ending.
All my books work as complete standalone stories but some are part of a series and others are connected. The Welcome to Whitsborough Bay series and the Hedgehog Hollow series are best enjoyed when read in order and, if taking a trip to Castle Street at Christmas, I’d recommend Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes before Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café.
I hope you decide to dive in and that you enjoy your visit to Yorkshire. Thanks again for looking.
Big hugs, Jessica xx

This was one of those books I was able to close at the end and just smile about it.
Can't wait for the next book in the series!

Elise and Gary got together at 14 years old, in Elise’s eyes he is everything. They eventually get married and were both busy working towards their work goals and having achieved this and doing well Elise thinks it’s time to start a family, Gary keeps making excuses and it’s like she is invisible. He becomes more and more detached.
After returning home early after a night out Elise makes a discovery that she never saw coming and she knows there will be no going back to life as she knew it.
She thinks all her hopes and dreams are dashed and wonders how to even begin to start again, to add to it all her best friend Callie is getting married and her younger sister is not only getting married, she is also expecting twins.
Elise has the premise of a new love for her and inadvertently ends up choosing between more than one man and one of which unexpectedly grabs her heart….
It makes me sad that there is no form of inventiveness, people do die of old age, there’s MS or aneurysms etc. but it’s always cancer.
It’s becoming rather wearing I think I’m going to have to go back to American authors who don’t feel the need to use the C word to make the story more interesting or play on emotions.
Just to be clear the odds of dying from breast cancer has lowered somewhat I can only hope that those who have been diagnosed and choose to read one of your books to give them a distraction don’t feel despondent or fed up.
The story revolves around Elise, best friend of Sarah, who featured in Searching for Steven. Elise is a lovely heroine, and I really felt her shock and pain as she makes a discovery that will change the course of her life. Her grief is compounded by the events in her sister's and Sarah's lives. Surrounded by happy couples and expectant parents, Elise is struggling to cope with her pain. Everything in her world has changed. Everything she thought she knew has been proven to be a lie. How can she start to put her life back together again?
Elise goes on a journey of discovery. Having been half of a couple since she was a teenager, she now has to learn who she is, and what she wants from life, now that her husband is out of the equation. Sometimes, she makes mistakes. Her judgement is a little off-balance occasionally - but how can it not be? She's lonely, sad, confused and angry. The future she had mapped out for herself no longer exists. She has to grieve not only for what she had and lost, but for what she might have had and never will. So, of course, she's going to make mistakes and plot a haphazard course for a while.
The great thing about Elise is that she doesn't give up. Even with her dreams in tatters, she picks herself up and tries to mend herself, her way. Trying to put a brave face on things for the sake of her friend and sister shows what a kind and caring person she is. I really felt for her when she confronted her own mother - an awful old bat of a woman who was enough to crush the confidence of anyone, let alone someone as vulnerable as Elise. As for her mother-in-law! Words fail me.
I loved following Elise's journey as she battled to get over Gary. I was rooting for her all the way through the book, and I really hoped she would get her happy ending. I won't say what happens, but suffice it to say I had a big smile on my face when I came to the end.
Lovely, warm writing, great setting, characters you can really relate to, and a satisfactory conclusion. I'm now looking forward to reading the last in the Whitsborough Bay series, although I will be very sad to say goodbye.
Following Elise on the journey to her happy ever after is a rollercoaster of emotions. Will she make the right decision and pick the Mr Right that (as a reader) I found myself rooting for from the first time he appeared on the page. I thought Jessica Redland had created the perfect hero in Searching for Steven, but I love Elise's eventual Mr Right even more. Can you tell that I'm trying to avoid saying the names and giving away spoilers here?!
I'm already looking forward to book three in the series and hoping that Clare finds her way to a happy ever after as well. Coming back to Whitsborough Bay is a bit like meeting up with friends for a coffee or a cocktail, something you can never get enough of.
