Head Over Heels
Thirty-something teacher and professional shopper, Grace, has a passion for shoes. In fact they were responsible for her meeting her partner, Mark, when she speared his foot with one of her dangerously sharp heels whilst running for a train.
Mark is the other passion in her life, or so she thinks... When he suggests they try for a baby - but is reluctant to tie the knot on their very long-term engagement - the cracks in her champagne lifestyle start to appear. As Mark becomes ever more controlling, Grace begins to see her blond and sexy boss, Tom, in a different light. A conventionally one-man woman who doesn't 'do' affairs, she suddenly finds herself in the midst of the sort of tangled lifestyle she has only read about in the celeb pages. Throw in the added complications of an untimely pregnancy, a case of mistaken identity and some pretty zany friends and Grace's life is thrown into turmoil. Retail therapy and even the comfort of her vast shoe collection can't help her out of this dilemma...A story of love, shoes and shopping!

Hand On Heart
Hand On Heart is the long-awaited sequel to Sara Downing’s Kindle Top 100 Bestseller, Head Over Heels.
Six years on, and the friends are all older – although not necessarily wiser.
Evie’s once devoted husband, James, is going through a mid-life crisis which threatens to tear the family – and their business – apart.
Their once delightful eldest daughter, Imogen, seems to have been abducted by aliens and replaced with a stroppy teenager. Even their youngest, the studious Anastasia, is on the brink of swapping books for boys.
Evie is in a dilemma and doesn’t know which way to turn; her dream of becoming a writer looks to be her only respite from the real world which is fast becoming a nightmare.
Evie puts all her hopes into their upcoming holiday to France, with good friends, Grace and Tom. But when a past love comes back to haunt Tom, with potentially life-changing consequences, he has his own choices to make.
Will the holiday bring Evie and James closer again? Or is two families under the roof of one chateau, for two whole weeks, simply a recipe for disaster?
Life isn’t going too well for Phoebe Grey. Newly single and unemployed, she desperately fills her evenings with meals-for-one, the TV, Arnie, her cat – and rehearsals for an amateur dramatic play, a futuristic rewrite of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
Phoebe wonders exactly where her life is heading – nowhere, it would seem. And then she meets Harry Kirkwood, an up-and-coming actor, who is currently playing Mr Darcy in a lavish West End production. He is about to be thrust into the spotlight as the acting world’s ‘next big thing', after years of struggling to get himself noticed.
But what could the charming Harry possibly see in little Phoebe Grey, an ordinary girl with an ordinary life, no designer clothes and no job?
Before she can say ‘Good heavens, Mr Darcy', Phoebe is thrown into the limelight alongside Harry, and life soon becomes a whirlwind of glamorous parties, meeting famous people and dodging the paparazzi.
Can Phoebe cope with all the attention? Is she really cut out for a celebrity lifestyle? When a rival for Harry’s affections threatens all she holds dear, can Phoebe find the strength to overcome her fears and find her happily-ever-after?
