One of bestselling author Katie Flynn's contemporary novels reissued for the first time

For the shopkeepers who work in the Arcade in the seaside town of Haisby, life is not always easy.

Diane Hopgood has moved from the bright lights of London to start a fashion boutique, expecting a quiet life, she finds both love and drama.

Anthea, her assistant, has finally managed to free herself of the dark memories of her father's sadistic abuse. But a terrible event changes everything for her.

Marj cooks and waits tables at the wine bar, under the watchful eye of Martin, a chef of undoubted genius, despite his passion for women. Why has he never noticed Marj, though?

As the shopkeepers struggle to make a living, each of them finds their life changing over the course of one eventful year.

About the author

Katie Flynn

Katie Flynn is the author of 47 bestselling novels which have sold over 5 million copies. Her first book, A Liverpool Lass, was published in 1993. Katie Flynn was the pseudonym of the author Judy Turner, who was inspired to write the novels after hearing family recollections of life in Liverpool during the early twentieth century. Judy sadly passed away in January 2019 at the age of 82. Her daughter Holly worked as her assistant for many years and together they co-authored a number of Katie Flynn novels, including Christmas at Tuppenny Corner. The Katie Flynn legacy now lives on through Holly who writes new books, often based on ideas she discussed with her mother.


Holly lives in the north east of Wales with her husband Simon and their two children. When she’s not writing she enjoys walking her two lurchers, Sparky and Snoopy, in the surrounding countryside, and cooking forbidden foods such as pies, cakes, and puddings! She looks forward to sharing many more Katie Flynn stories with readers in the years to come.
