This novel was suggested by my editor at My Weekly; a war novel with an Aussie lead character. It was a challenge research-wise but the end result is something that I’m proud of.
Pauline Newton is an Australian nurse posted to Killymoor Hall in Lancashire. It’s a military hospital which not only cares for wounded servicemen but, surprisingly is also is the base of a nest of Nazi saboteurs. Along with a resident Sergeant, Pauline and her fellow nurses have to uncover the head of the Nazi cell, solve a murder and prevent a catastrophic attack on British soil.
The title is a homage to a favourite song of mine, sung by the Everly Brothers and written by Paul McCartney.
It’s out in British supermarkets on the magazine shelves starting Thursday 6th Feb 2020.
