It's publication day!
Coming Home to Hope Street, the second book in The Hope Street Series, is launched today.
I'm so excited about this one - I really enjoyed catching up with the characters from The Man Across the Street.
The blurb is at the bottom of this post, but I thought you might like to see a few reviews that have come in:
‘A book about making mistakes and mending fences, finding your place and a bookshop! They say you can never go home again, but you can if you live on Hope Street!’
'Coming Home to Hope Street was a deliciously delightful experience throughout! Heartwarming and emotional it’s a hug in a book-and we all need one of those this year!’
‘This book is full of lovable characters who have their fair share of drama and heartache, but also enjoy each other’s friendship and neighbourly support through the rough times as well as the good.’
'When I step into a Marcie Steele novel, it's like wrapping myself in my favourite chunky cardigan on a winters day, because within a few pages I have that warm, cosy feeling and I know I'm in for a real treat.'
Step across the cobblestones, pull back the curtains and peek behind the doors in the second instalment of The Hope Street Series. Catch up with old friends and fall in love with new ones in a story of friendship, second chances and new beginnings.
Livvy has no choice but to return to Hope Street, the childhood home she left over twenty years ago. Along with her sixteen-year-old daughter, Pip, she turns up on the doorstep, hoping for forgiveness from her sister.
Hannah thought she’d never see Livvy again. She’s overwhelmed with emotion but locks away her real feelings. How could Livvy stay away without any contact? And why has she come back now?
It isn’t long before the charm of the market town of Somerley begins to work its magic. Hannah is opening a book shop in the square, adjoining The Coffee Stop, and Livvy’s offer to help out brings the sisters closer together.
But when someone from Livvy’s past arrives unannounced too, he threatens everything she’s built up since her return. Can Livvy convince her sister, and her new friends, that her intentions to return were good ones? Or will her dreams of settling down and being happy again become nothing but a closed book?
