Rock chick and random act of kindness combo make for Ab Fab read!
Bella Novela by Charlotte Harrison-King introduces the deliciously vibrant and cinema loving Catherine Lish. Discovering a neglected little girl on a beach in Mexico, Catherine has some big decisions to make. Does she simply walk past, or does she throw caution to the wind and embrace wherever one random act of kindness might take her?
A debut triumph, Bella Novela hooks you in from the start, and though published less than a month ago, it already has reviewers saying they need to read it again.
A rollercoaster of a read, Charlotte Harrison-King not only spoils her audience with effervescent characters but weaves a rainbow of emotions, quirkiness and accessible pop culture references throughout her plot which keeps the surprises and delight coming.
Offering a well-crafted narrative and pure escapism, Bella Novela is finding favour with both sexes and is a literary treasure well deserving of a top spot on this summer’s must-read list.
“When floaty-dressed rock chick Catherine Lish encounters a neglected little girl on a beach in Mexico, she faces a dilemma. Should she just keep walking, continue her holiday and then return to her comfortable yet complicated life in England? Or will the cinema aficionado in her know a plot twist when she sees one and allow a random act of kindness to change the script of her life forever?
“Sun-kissed, twisty, and yearningly romantic, Bella Novela is a quirky international tale which reminds us that things are rarely what they seem on the surface.”
