New Writing

Rosalie & Mika’ was a short story meant to form the keystone in a collection of romantic suspense short stories but, as often happens with writing, it developed into a novel which I hope to publish later in the year.  


Rosalie Martinez has always been an outsider but never more so than when she begins working at the prestigious Hotel Villafeira during the Summer season on the Portuguese coast.    


She is fairly confident that none of the other employees come from the upbringing she does or have come by their employment at the Hotel in the same manner she has.    Her background is messy, complicated and unpleasant and she keeps it fiercely secret in order to protect herself and those around her.


However, this secrecy proves hard to maintain when she falls in love with Mika Tsertsov, who also works at the Hotel.   They embark on a relationship which begins to crumble as Mika’s friends and colleagues start to suspect that Rosalie is not all she seems.     When Mika confides in his Mother his doubts about Rosalie, he discovers why she has been so evasive and uncovers a secret about her background that even she is unaware of, and which has the potential to change life for both of them.


Mika faces a desperate race against time to rescue their relationship but is it too late to stop Rosalie from making a fatal error of judgement?
