Searching for Steven: What if you already know your future... but not the path to take you there? (Welcome to Whitsborough Bay Book 1)

Searching for Steven- Jessica Redland 5*  
Sarah has a problem with her long term boyfriend Jason. Not only is he insensitive to
her needs but he treats her like an unpaid skivvy. When she arrives home one night to
find him on the sofa and the flat a total mess, enough is enough. By chance she contacts
her Aunt and one thing leads to another and before she knows it she has moved house
and changed jobs and is now the proud owner of “Flowers Florist”. After discovering a
long lost tape from a psychic when she was eighteen and several things already having
been proven,  Sarah she will follow the instructions that the love of her life will be a
Steven and so the search beings. This is a wonderfully written lighthearted story that
envelopes you warmly in its pages. You take to the characters and perhaps remember
your own dating/university/beach/city days. I’m not normally into romance but this
was something special, really special. So well written it brought a tear to my eye.
We all need lifting sometimes and this is just the book to do it. If you are having a
bad day pick this up and restore your faith in friendships and human nature.
 A real sparkling treasure of a read.

Searching For Steven What if you already know your future… but not the path to take you there? When Sarah Peterson accepts her Auntie Kay's unexpected offer to take over her florist's shop, she's prepared for a change of job, home and lifestyle. What she isn't prepared for is the discovery of a scarily accurate clairvoyant reading that's been missing for twelve years. All her predictions have come true, except one: she's about to meet the man of her dreams. Oh, and his name is Steven. Suddenly Stevens are everywhere. Could it be the window cleaner, the rep, the manager of the coffee shop, or any of the men she's met online? On top of that, she finds herself quite attracted to a handsome web designer, but his name isn't even Steven... During this unusual search, will Sarah find her destiny? Purchase on Amazon UK - Author Bio – Jessica had never considered writing as a career until a former manager kept telling her that her business reports read more like stories and she should write a book. She loved writing but had no plot ideas. Then something happened to her that prompted the premise for her debut novel, Searching for Steven. She put fingers to keyboard and soon realised she had a trilogy and a novella! She lives on the stunning North Yorkshire Coast – the inspiration for the settings in her books – with her husband, daughter, cat, Sprocker Spaniel, and an ever-growing collection of collectible teddy bears. Although if the dog has her way, the collection will be reduced to a pile of stuffing and chewed limbs! Jessica tries to balance her time – usually unsuccessfully – between being an HR tutor and writing. Social Media Links – Twitter: @JessicaRedland Facebook: Website and blog:
