The Purrfect Pet Sitter is the new romantic comedy novel from Littlehampton author Carol Thomas, available on Kindle from Amazon, published by Ruby Fiction. It was great fun to write, she says. Carol said: “My novel tells the story of 29-year-old Lisa Blake, who suffers a loss that causes her to re-evaluate her life, return to her hometown of Littlehampton and start over as The Purrfect Pet Sitter, which may or may not be false advertising. “But, being back where she grew up, Lisa can’t escape her past. There is her ex-best friend, Felicity, and her first love Nathan Baker. Snooping at Nathan’s Facebook page seems harmless but sending him a drunken friend request wasn’t part of her plan.

Author Carol Thomas is celebrating after being told her latest novel, The Purrfect Pet Sitter, is to be published by an award-winning company.
Her new book is to be published by Ruby Fiction and follows the success of her first novel, Crazy Over You.
Carol attended a “meet the authors” event staged by publishers Choc Lit in Southampton last year and part of the event included the opportunity to pitch to an editor. After a brief interview, Choc Lit editor, Lusana Taylor invited Carol to send her latest book in to go forward to a panel of readers, who enjoy women’s fiction and provide feedback before publishing decisions are made.
Three months later, Carol was excited to get a call from Lyn Vernham, director of Choc Lit. Speaking about the moment, Carol said: “I was delighted to get the call, my book had received positive feedback from the panel, and they wanted to move forward with publishing it.
The Best Boomerville Hotel, Cumbria’s answer to the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is open for business. – in a literary sense.
Officially ‘opening its doors’ on 13 March – publication day, the fictional lake district hotel is being overwhelmed by the publishing world’s version of advance bookings as fans of what is now being called ‘Boomer lit’ pre order The Best Boomerville Hotel novel.
Boomer lit is fiction written, and marketed with the baby boomer audience specifically in mind. It features characters and topics the boomer generation – those born between 1946 and 1964 – can identify with and embrace. Not to say that Boomer lit’s appeal isn’t wider – as can be seen with the hugely popular Best Exotic Marigold Hotel film and BBC series that stemmed from the Deborah Moggach book, ‘These Foolish Things’.
The Best Boomerville Hotel is all about its namesake, a fictional hotel that plays host to a holiday retreat exclusively for guests of ‘a certain age’ wishing to stimulate both mind and body with new creative experiences. The wonderful selection of colourful individuals it inevitably attracts ensures laughs aplenty for the reader but, as with the very best of books, there can be tears too.
