Animal Instincts


Ta dah!!!
Down-to-earth Clodagh Martin is very fond of her glamorous actress step-sister, Imogen - in small doses. So when Imogen turns up on her doorstep drunk and clutching a bottle of champage and announces that she's come to stay, Clodagh isn't exactly thrilled. It's not a great time. The animal sanctuary she runs is stony broke and the animals; a foul-mouthed parrot, two gay donkeys and a goat, aren't enough to attract the hoardes.

It's not a great time for Imogen either. Let's face it, staying at Rainbow's End animal sanctuary wouldn't exactly be her first choice. Unfortunately, a combination of debt and a humiliating public scandal involving a live TV show and too much booze, has left Imogen with very little choice but to throw herself on Clodagh's mercy until things blow over.

But actually, this could be a heaven-sent opportunity to get both her career and the sanctuary back on track. What could possibly go wrong?

Just loving it!

Wonderful! Happy for you. Go, Nell!

Nell said...

Thanks all. I was so excited when I saw it. The lettering is the same as Blue Remembered Heels and I think the whole style is fab with the same retro feel.

The retro is beautiful - in fact I'd buy that print in curtains it's so cool.

Can't wait to read it. Way to go.

Nell said...

Thank you!!! It is really cute - I hadn't given too much thought about what it might be like but I had hoped after reading the blurb that Dave the parrot might make the cover.
