So grab a glass of wine, fasten your seatbelt and get ready for a bumpy ride along the rocky road to romance. It may be turbulent but it’s still a whole lot of fun.

To Catch a Creeper

“Insanely good read for fans of humor and mystery cozies” Rabid Readers Reviews 

Cathy is riding high in her brand-new job at a (surprisingly bitchy) top London advertising agency working with best friend Rosa.

When Good Friends go Bad

Can you ever learn to forgive and forget?

Nominated as a “Top Ten Beach Read” by Red Magazine

All through school, tomboy Jen, snobby Georgina, hippy Meg and gentle Rowan, were inseparable. Until, that is, the unfortunate consequences of a childish prank tore them apart. As adults an attempted reunion went disastrously wrong. Rowan failed to appear. Meg behaved outrageously and – sharpest cut of all – Jen discovered just how deeply Georgina had betrayed her.

So now, a mother herself, in the midst of divorce, the last thing Jen needs is a call from Meg. Or is it? Will Meg’s strange mission to track down the missing Rowan re-open old wounds or is it a chance to heal the rift – or to recover Jen’s never-forgotten, first true love? As their quest unearths secrets and feelings best left buried, Jen, Meg and Georgina will be tested on love, loyalty, and friendship, discover the truth about Rowan – and wake a danger that threatens them all.

  17. […] Ellie Campbell floated a KCD 99¢ in mid September on When Good Friends Go Bad. When engaging in a KCD, you may choose your territory. Ellie did NOT promote the KCD on amazon.com. We all know Bookbub is the premier of ebook promoters for indie authors. Very costly. See the price list HERE. However, again, one may choose a Bookbub slot for a single territory. Much cheaper than focusing on all territories. That Bookbub slot cost Ellie $60.  One may advertize a FREE contemporary romance with Bookbub to the UK audience for £16 which is about $25 US.
