Bea Sinclair

She's in the wrong place with the wrong dress and the wrong man. Could it be time to call a taxi?

“Did you just call it a minor indiscretion?” Holly couldn’t believe her companion's audacity. “He was screwing her brains out on the staff room table. I butter my toast on that bloody table.”

When Holly’s life takes an unexpected turn, she finds herself embroiled in a six-way love muddle with five mismatched, unlikely and unsuspecting individuals. In a cruel and often crudely humorous tale, we follow our heroes and heroines in their search for true love.

Thanks to Spilota for help with editing.

I read 5 chapters; I like both pitches, they are succinct and give a flavour of the story to to come. The characters are well drawn and distinct. I particularly like Maggie as an MC. she is believable. Her lack of punctuality makes her human and sympathetic. Jack is gorgeous and I hope Maggie's st... view book

R2G review. I have read 5 of these short stories and enjoyed all of them. The writing is of a high standard, the characters are incredibly well drawn without being overly described. The style and the humour remind me of the 90s TV sketch show 'Alas Smith & Jones', funny without being slapstick or c... view book

RCG review I have read to the end of Chapter 5 Both pitches are succinct, which I like and give the reader a hint of the story. The characters are well drawn, I like both Katie and Amelia, but I was a little confused by the mention of Collett (the MC's sister) and Evie, in the opening section. Al... view book

I have read 4 of the uploaded chapters and I find the writing style engaging. I am unsure at present as to the precise theme of the story, but am expecting a 'Damascus ' moment at some point. First person perspective is difficult to write IMO, but works very well here. The MC is dry and witty, with... view book

RCG review. I read 3 chapters I like the the short pitch but the long pitch gives away rather more of the story than is ideal. The two couples who make up the main characters in the story are obviously mismatched from page one. Brian and Jill are both 'punching above their weight' and are so self... view book
