Sue Moorcroft’s romantic summer novel JUST FOR THE HOLIDAYS shortlisted for the 2018 Romantic Novel Awards!


JUST FOR THE HOLIDAYS, Sue Moorcroft’s dazzling summer story, is shortlisted for the RoNA Romantic Novel Awards 2018. There are seven award categories identifying the best in romantic fiction, and JUST FOR THE HOLIDAYS is nominated for best Contemporary Romantic Novel.

The winners of each category will be announced on Monday 5th March 2018 at an Award Ceremony held at Gladstone Library. The overall winner will be awarded the Goldsboro Books Romantic Novel of the Year and a prize of £5,000.

In JUST FOR THE HOLIDAYS, what should be a glorious, peaceful stint under the French sun turns into the holiday from hell. From teenagers and divorce to unexpected pregnancies and misplaced attachments, everything about Leah Beaumont’s holiday spells disaster. Leah is struggling to keep her sister’s family together, which is difficult under normal circumstances, but it’s even more difficult when there’s Ronan, the engaging helicopter pilot next door. He’s handsome. And he’s got all this baggage, and Leah’s scared of commitment. And yet, Leah can’t help but get involved...

My Weekly praised the book saying, ‘Sue’s gift for description and characters and a well-paced, funny yet tender plot makes this the ideal holiday read.’ In 2016, her festive novel THE CHRISTMAS PROMISE was a Kindle No.1 bestseller and her most recent release, THE LITTLE VILLAGE CHRISTMAS, reached No.6 in the Sunday Times bestseller charts.
