The Festival by the Sea
Gina Laurel is ready to move on from her quiet life at Shelly Beach - and she's got the brilliant job offer to prove it. But when her erstwhile lover - and director of the inaugural Shelly Beach Writers' Festival - takes a job in the city, Gina finds herself the last-minute fill-in as director of the chaotic seaside festival.
Before she can rejoin the rat race, she must negotiate her way through celebrity-author hissy fits, champagne galas, rogue pirates and giant mice . . . not to mention a love/hate relationship with the former festival director.
As the festival looms ever closer, Gina has some big decisions to make. Is she really ready to swap her ocean view for an office desk and the bright lights of the city?
From the author of The Shelly Beach Writers' Group comes the second hilarious instalment of Gina's adventures at Shelly Beach, full of wit, warmth and whimsy.
