Zara Stoneley is an English novelist, born in Staffordshire. She published The Wedding Date in April 2018. Learn more about the author and her book, as well as ratings and reviews on the latter.
When she grew up, Zara wanted to be James Herriot, a spy, or an author. Writing novels means she can imagine she is all these things, and more. She wrote her first novel, a thriller, when she was twelve years old and now, several years on, her dream of being a published author has come true.
In December 2012 she had her first best seller, with an erotic novel Good Enough to Share hitting the #1 spot on a UK Amazon best seller list, along with the #3 spot in the US. She then switched over to writing contemporary romance and romcoms and has since had several more Amazon best sellers, which is a dream come true for her, as she says on her website.
Zara Stoneley‘s bestselling novels include The Holiday Swap, Summer with the Country Village Vet, Blackberry Picking at Jasmine Cottage and the popular Tippermere series – Stable Mates, Country Affairs and Country Rivals.
Zara lives in a Cheshire village with her family, a naughty cockapoo, and a very bossy cat, and loves spending time in sunny Spain.
Let’s discover today her novel out in April 2018, The Wedding Date.
‘All the fun, love and laughter of a real wedding – but without having to buy a new dress!’ Debbie Johnson
‘The best date I have ever been on…my most favourite book of 2018’ Kaisha, The Writing Garnet
One little white lie.
When Samantha Jenkins is asked to be the maid of honour at her best friend’s wedding, she couldn’t be happier. There are just three problems…
1) Sam’s ex-boyfriend, Liam, will be the best man.
2) His new girlfriend is pregnant.
3) Sam might have told people she has a new man when she doesn’t (see points 1 and 2 above)
So, Sam does the only sensible thing available to her… and hires a professional to do the job.
Actor Jake Porter is perfect for the role: single, gorgeous and cheap! Sam is certain it’s the perfect solution: no strings, no heartbreak and hopefully no chance of being found out.
But spending a week in the Scottish Highlands with Jake is harder than she imagined. He is the perfect boyfriend, charming, sexy and the hottest thing in a kilt since Outlander! And his dog Harry is quite possibly the cutest things Sam has ever seen!
As the wedding draws closer, Jake plays his part to perfection and everyone believes he is madly in love with Sam. The problem is, Sam’s not sure if Jake is acting anymore…
