Pictures in the Sky


Is it ever right to do the wrong thing? She gave up on romance years ago. He’s going through the motions. Their lives change forever when he makes contact out of the blue.

With her daughter leaving the nest, Michelle Cameron would rather spend her time with good friends, a glass of fizzy and a box set, than with another idiot bloke chipping away at her self-esteem. But when childhood friend Daniel Helmsley gets back in touch, the years roll away on a tide of laughter and friendship that soon gives way to another roller coaster of love, excitement and panic. Can Michelle allow herself to trust again?

Is Dan the honourable man he appears to be? What if he is just another selfish bloke, disillusioned with the present and nostalgic for the past?

If you like a story that makes you laugh as well as cry, then you’ll love this tale of past disappointment, renewed friendship and searching for true love. Download Amanda Paull’s Pictures in the Sky today to discover if Michelle dares to love again, and whether Dan really deserves her love.
