The Timid Time Tourist

NB. This book is temporarily unpublished and will return with a new title. Thanks!

Scarlett King, engaged to money-mad Peregrine Pratt for six years (six!) is at breaking point. When he asks her to move to spooky Mystic Manor, her intuition screams no while her timid mouth says yes.

Within hours, Scarlett discovers the new house has a revolver-wielding, false-teeth-clicking, crazy ghost. It's the final nail in the relationship coffin. She flees to a Find Yourself seminar on Morbley Moor, Yorkshire.

There, she falls in instant lust with the heart-stopping handsome course leader.

The hot hunk asks Scarlett to join him on a time-travel journey to a star-studded 1976 party. She isn't sure if the attraction is mutual or if he's using her. And would he persuade her if he resembled Quasimodo, not Casanova?

Will Scarlett find true love?
Or untold danger?
And might she get stuck in the past?
