Ready to get into the Christmas spirit? December is around the corner, and Liz Fenwick’s A CORNISH CHRISTMAS CAROL is published in e-book by Orion today. With her new, heart-warming festive tale, Fenwick offers a contemporary, fun and poignant take on Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL:
Joy to the world? Not if Abigail Scorrier has anything to do with it. She's spent most of her adult life trying to avoid the festive frenzy. She loved Christmas as a child in Cornwall: the colourful stockings hanging above a crackling fire, the excitement of what will be waiting for her the next morning. But ever since her life took a heart-breaking turn, she's buried those memories and done everything she can to avoid her past, her family and most of all, the Christmas season.
But on Christmas Eve, Abigail will have three visitors she can't ignore, and what they reveal about her past, present and future might just change her life - and mend her heart.

Earlier this year Liz’s fourth novel UNDER A CORNISH SKY was shortlisted for the Contemporary Romantic Novel Award at the RoNA 2016. Her new novel, THE RETURNING TIDE, will be published in March 2017.
Liz Fenwick was born in Massachusetts, has lived in many cities around the world, and now lives in London with her family. She visits her Cornish house as often as possible. Her novels are translated into 13 languages so far: she’s published by Goldmann in Germany, Meulenhoff in Holland, Bazar in Denmark, Quinta Essencia in Portugal, Varrak in Estonia and Brana in Czech Republic, amongst others.
