And Then I Fell in Love by Jen Beadle

The Story

Everything is fine. I’m fine. 

When Saskia Fraser arrives in Brighton she wonders what planet she’s landed on. A world away from her native Sydney, the British seaside resort is both weird and wonderful.  

Her nerves about starting a new life dissolve when she wanders into the arms of local nightclub owner, Shaun Sanders. Most people cross the street when they see Shaun coming, but not Saskia. Before long she’s up to her eyes in love. And denial. Blinded by both, she can’t see what’s right in front of her. 

Caleb Green. A fellow musician, delicious and irresistible. Chocolate in human form. He and Saskia share a lot more than just a love of music, but he’s also inquisitive and can sense that all is not right. 

Between Shaun and Caleb, Saskia finds herself juggling two very different relationships as she embarks on a dangerous journey.  

A journey that will certainly change her life. Or perhaps end it.  

Everything is fine. I’m fine.
Is it? Am I?


Available in e-book or paperback

“Saskia spent much of her first week wandering around the city, wondering what planet she’d landed on. Brighton was far stranger and quirkier than she had imagined. One evening she and Tara went for a meal at an Italian restaurant and were seated next to a man enjoying a bowl of spaghetti, with an inflatable doll as his companion. The next day, she popped out for coffee and found herself standing behind Darth Vader in the queue. As she sipped that coffee on a bench overlooking the sea, an elderly gentleman informed her that the giant seagulls – which she found terrifying – were, in fact, government spies."
