Born and raised in rural Wiltshire, Jo Lambert has always been a country girl at heart. Currently she lives on the eastern edge of Bath in a beautiful village set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Here she has the best of both worlds – there is Bath with its fabulous history and architecture, its cafes, restaurants, cinemas and theatre - and of course wonderful shopping! Then in complete contrast there is the village and open countryside with amazing views – a great inspiration for writing she says.
Jo is married, owns one small grey female feline called Mollie and shares her husband with Bridget - a 48 year old white MG Midget. ‘She keeps him occupied while I’m writing’ she tells us.
Author of four novels, her latest book, The Other Side of Morning will be available in February 2014
The Other Side of Morning
Former model turned fashion designer Thérèse D’Alesandro has recently moved into Higher Padbury Manor with daughter Felica and stepson Marco. Joining forces with Ella Benedict’s exclusive functions venue ‘Lawns at Little Court’ she is about to open a bridal boutique.
Working in London where he manages his father’s European restaurant chain, Marco has both the looks and charm to guarantee him any woman; any woman, that is, except the one he wants: Ella’s niece Charlotte. Already involved with rock star Christian Rosetti and the most rude and argumentative female he has ever encountered he knows he should walk away. But Charlotte has sparked strong feelings within him; feelings which refuse to go away and which he senses, despite her attitude, she is also experiencing.
Recently returned from abroad and now working for her father’s record company Lucy Benedict has discovered Christian’s guilty secrets; ones he has been keeping safely hidden from her cousin . Determined to cause mischief and at the same time settle her own score with the arrogant star she sets in motion a chain of events which create havoc for Christian and eventually bring Charlotte and Marco together.
Rossana Caravello, the D’Alessandro’s newly-arrived house guest, is due to inherit the famous Alba Dorata vineyards on her eighteenth birthday. As one of Tuscany’s premier producers of Chianti, Thérèse is aware they would make an excellent addition to her husband Gianlucca’s international business portfolio. To bring them into his possession she sets about engineering a match between Rossana and Marco determined nothing is going to stand in her way…including Charlotte.
From rural West Somerset to the glorious rolling landscape of Tuscany and the Italian Lakes THE OTHER SIDE OF MORNING is a story of love, betrayal, deception and ultimate sacrifice.
