Era(s): Present day

She wanted to get back at her cheating boyfriend but stealing his boat wasn’t a great idea.

When Caro Bennett finds her boyfriend in the arms of another woman, she decides to get her own back by commandeering his boat. However, now having run out of fuel and stuck, clueless, in the English Channel she begins to regret her decision.

Fortunately, she is plucked from a serious situation relatively unscathed, and this is when she first meets Alex. He shepherds exhausted Caro to the comfort of his grandmother’s home on Guernsey.

Caro’s ordeal is far from over. The port authorities have taken an interest in her vessel, and her boyfriend Craig’s arrival, like a rolling thunder, is imminent.

Despite the seriousness of the situation, Caro gets to know the sincere but moody Alex better, and forms a strong bond with his wise grandmother who takes a shine to her.

And she will need all the friends she can get when the truth about Craig comes out into the open. Once more in danger, Caro must find the strength to trust and love again.

LIBERATION DAY is a standalone thriller that will appeal to readers of crime and romance. Pippa McCathie is the bestselling author of the mystery series that begins with MURDER IN THE VALLEYS, available on Kindle, paperback and in audio. LIBERATION DAY is set in Guernsey, where the author has lived for many years. Look out for her romance, THE ISLAND BRIEF, out now on Amazon.
