MARY AKEHURST’S SCOTTISH SHORTBREAD
A very talented author of several books,
And what Mishka drew in the Spooktacular was the following……..
So, let’s put our paws together and welcome her along to find out just what that is.
‘No contest, it has to be ghosts.
The thought of something haunting you, something you can’t see or do anything about, creeps me out big time!
I can deal with the vampires and their fangs, or the Freddy Kruegers and their claws; at least you can see them, and then stab them in the chest with a large wooden stake.
But ghosts, not so much! What do you even do if they haunt you?
Especially when so many things can be attributed to them. Like when the curtains blow open and everyone jokes, ‘oh, it’s a ghost’ and then laugh. I’m the one in the corner hyperventilating!
So far, I have never written a ghost character and am not sure I’d ever attempt it. If I did, it would have to be done during the day with lots of other people around!
Successful businesswoman Alex is content with her life in London, and any ideas of romance have been left on the back burner. But when her fairy godmother, FG, waltzes into her office one morning announcing she has come to help Alex rekindle a passion for life and love, she is about to check herself into therapy!
The fairy godmother’s incessant wand-flicking soon lands them in the isolation of the Scottish highlands, where Alex’s next client, Mal Ross, not only stirs her professional interest but her romantic ones too.
Tasked with the enormous challenge of turning a historic castle into a flourishing hotel, the pair must work closely together whilst attempting to avoid the awkward situations the rom-com obsessed fairy godmother keeps forcing them into.
But the path of love is never smooth, no matter how much magic you throw at it.
‘The Magic Spark’ is a light, enjoyable read, full of fun and romance.
