Carole Matthews Synopses: Let’s Meet on Platform 8 is a standaone title by Carole Matthews. Teri has dated more men than she’s had low-calorie, low-fat dinners. Despite this, she has yet to find Mr. Right, but she has found Mr. Lazy, Mr. Greedy, Mr. Completely Selfish, Mr. Looking-For-Mother-Substitute and Mr. Pervert. All this, and still no Mr. Right. That is until she’s literally knocked off her feet by Jamie Duncan as they rush to catch the same train from Euston station: the 18.07 from platform 8. It’s not long before love blossoms and commuting takes on a whole new meaning. There’s just one problem. Teri may have found Mr. Right but he may not be Mr. Available…

A Whiff of Scandal is a standalone novel. When Rose escapes from London and Hugh – her devastatingly handsome, intelligent and charming ex-lover – she has no idea that her occupation as an aromatherapist will cause such a scandal in her new country village. All she wants is a bit of peace and quiet, but her weird and wonderful neighbours soon ensure that her life is more complicated and chaotic than it ever was before. Maybe that’s because she’s in love again…
