Jasmine Sea: A River's End Love Story. Book Two

Sometimes facing the past is the only way forward.

Starting over never felt better. Christie Ryan adores the little cottage she’s renovating, the seaside town that embraced her, and Martin Blake, the man she longs to marry. Ex-fiancĂ© Derek Hobbs is finally out of the picture, and there are no more secrets in her life or mysteries to solve.

Will the arrival of a mysterious woman who commissions a portrait from Martin under a cloud of secrecy break her after all? Unrest and suspicion remind Christie that happiness can be fleeting, and when the peaceful town is shattered by crime, her past is again thrust into the limelight.

With one chance and only minutes to save those she loves, Christie comes face to face with her greatest fear—and there is no way around it.

Jasmine Sea follows on from The Stationmaster's Cottage, set shortly after its stunning conclusion.

Meet the Author Phillipa Nefri Clark

Phillipa Nefri Clark grew up around lonely Australian beaches with wild seas and misty cliffs. From a young age she wrote stories and dreamed of being a writer. There were many detours along the way as she trod paths as diverse as a travelling sales rep to singing and acting. Fascinated by film, Phillipa wrote five feature length screenplays, one which was optioned. Now living in regional Victoria on a small acreage close to a mountain range, she markets the family business a few days a week and writes the rest of the time. With nonfiction credits for specialist canine publications, she finally returned to stories with the release of The Stationmaster’s Cottage, a dual timeline romance, in February 2017. Her great loves, apart from writing, are her family of two young adult sons and her husband, their Labrador, music,  fine wine, and friends.

What is the most difficult part of your artistic process? 
Controlling my favourite characters. I’m very intuitive and become immersed in their lives and at times there is the risk of them taking over. J
Does your family support your career as a writer? 
My husband and two young adult sons are super supportive! They share my highs and I try hard to keep the lows to a minimum, but they have my back either way.
If you had to do something differently as a child or teenager to become a better writer as an adult, what would you do? 
Difficult question. The real answer is ‘nothing’, because I’m the writer I am based on my life experiences. From a technical standpoint, finishing high school and doing further studies would have benefited me, but as a teen I had other people relying on me for an income.
How long on average does it take you to write a book?
The Stationmaster’s Cottage took more than fifteen years, on and off. Its sequel, Jasmine Sea, took only five months to write plus editing. So, getting faster!

      It is really stunning, isn't it? Did you notice how the origami boat includes parchment from The Stationmaster's Cottage?

  4. This sounds like a great read. Wishing you much success.

    1. Thank you so very much! If you read it, please let me know if you enjoy it.

  5. Woohoo happy release day for this awesome story yay I am thrilled for you this is a must read :)

    Have Fun


  6. Greetings. I don't read much while I'm writing myself! Sounds like a good read. Good luck with the new novel, Phillipa.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

    1. Thanks so much! I'm the same - rarely read whilst writing so I'm busy catching up with my TBR mountain :-)

  7. This sounds like a terrific book. I'll definitely check it out.

    And holy mackerel! From fifteen years down to five months??? That's amazing. My second book has progressed much more quickly than my first, but nowhere near THAT fast! I am duly impressed, and I wish you much success with it.

    1. Wow, thank you! And yes it was a big shock to find I can write fast. Mind you, now I'm more focused on writing novels than every before so make time for myself, something I didn't do in the past.

  8. Five months isn't bad to write an entire book. It takes me much longer. Best of luck with your new book!

    1. Thanks for the wishes. Five months was the first draft, so add on the edits etc, but I am still rather stunned!
