Release Date: 4th December 2018 / Publisher: Little Bear Books
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?

This is book one of the Whitsborough Bay series. Sarah Peterson finds herself single and unhappy in her job. Thanks to her Aunty Kay’s unexpected offer, Sarah prepares for a change in job, lifestyle and home to take over running Aunty Kay’s flower shop. Whilst packing for the move, Sarah finds an old tape which had a recording of a clairvoyant reading which she had lost 12 years before. Listening to it again, she realised all the predictions have come true, apart from one – that the man of her dreams would be called Steven! Determined to make the final prediction come true, Sarah finds there are Stevens everywhere – the window cleaner, the plasterer, the manager of the coffee shop to name a few. It’s such a shame that the man she does like isn’t called Steven…..
My second book by this author, the other book being another book in the same series. They can be read as standalone books though, so there is no need to read them in order! I really enjoyed this book and found it a really original story! I had worked out where the story was going quite quickly but it didn’t mean I enjoyed the story less though! Sarah was a lovely character and I enjoyed her relationships with her friends and especially her Aunty Kay! Sarah’s search for the elusive ‘Steven’ was funny and I couldn’t wait to find out how she actually met ‘The One’!
A heart-warming, funny and romantic story that was so easy to read, with clever and witty writing. I will definitely be looking out for the other books in this series! Well recommended!
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.
