Cutting Edge Press

Holiday Money

Jen is neither happy nor sad but she is on edge - dissatisfied but she doesn’t know why. She has a stable job as a Press Officer with the police, a stable relationship with Dan, a recently appointed Police Inspector and, after ten years, they are about to enter into a stable marriage. A telephone call from a woman called Sophia changes everything.

Is this proof of an affair? Could it be the excuse Jen needs to leave the stifling normality of her life?

After an uncharacteristic row, Jen travels to the Welsh coast to stay at a pre-booked romantic hotel. Full of self-pity and sadness she drinks too much and flirts with Justin, a handsome and charismatic charmer. A second meeting sees her back at his cottage where she wakes the following morning with a pounding headache, an empty bed, no memory and two used condoms.

Guilty and chastened (Justin was only the second man she’d slept with) she reconciles with a contrite Dan and continues with her wedding plans.

The video of her having sex with Justin is the start of Jen’s rediscovering herself. She is about to lose everything unless she confronts her blackmailer but where will he stop? Will her body be exposed to members of the Surf Sluts website?

As she uses her skills as a Press Officer and emulates her police colleagues to find her evil extortionist, darker secrets emerge. Does she know Justin? How much does she know about her husband-to-be?

Gripping and witty, Jones’ lightness of prose carries her readers to an unanticipated revelation.
