The Good News Gazette
Because we all need something to smile about!
She may be down but don’t count this determined single mum out just yet…
Nine years ago, Zoe Taylor returned from London to the quiet hamlet of Westholme with her tail between her legs and a bun in the oven. Where once her job as a journalist saw her tearing off to Paris at a moment’s notice after a lead, now the single mum covers the local news desk. At least, she did…until she’s unceremoniously let go.
When Zoe invites her friends over to commiserate, wine and whining soon turns into something more… and before the night is out she’s plotted her next step: The Good News Gazette.
Now, as a developer threatens to force Westholme into the twenty-first century, Zoe’s good news movement finds her leading a covert campaign as a community crusader. She may have started The Good News Gazette as a way to save herself, but she might just be able to save Westholme in the process…
Author Bio –
Jessie Wells lives with her husband and two children in Merseyside. She has always written in some form, and previously worked as a journalist on the Liverpool Echo and Sunday Mirror and as a freelancer for various national women’s magazines and newspapers before moving into finance. She loves nothing more than getting lost in her imaginary worlds, which are largely filled with romance, communities bursting with character and a large dose of positivity.
With such an adorable cover comes a story that tells us about a young single mother who is not having an easy time. She’s just lost her job and doesn’t know what to do next. Next she spends time re-evaluating her life and what she could do next. As she and her friends get together to un-celebrate the idea comes up that maybe her gifts as a journalist could best be used by writing good-news, feel good stories. She hoped that this idea might really take off, because people, including her, were so tired of getting depressed from all the doom and gloom news that they were faced with everyday.
This is an easy read and I found myself really liking Zoe as she finds herself in the same spot as so many people we know. She’s got a hard way to go, but keeps going and the book will definitely give the reader a few laughs and lots of smiles.
