’50 is the new 30 – haven’t you heard?’ Or so says Ben Wilde’s record producer on the eve of his comeback. If only Ben could win back ex-girlfriend, Kate, he’d be a happy man. But married Kate has moved on, and moved out – to Eden Hill, a quiet housing estate in the suburbs. Lonely and homesick for London, can Kate resist ego-maniac Ben’s advances and save her own flagging marriage?
Streets away, Kate’s new friend Lisa, a Chihuahua toting ex-WAG, is primed for a fresh start – until her footballer ex-husband is found dead and she is vilified in the gutter press. But Kate, Lisa and Ben aren’t the only ones having a midlife crisis; local shop owner Martin dreams of escaping his dutiful marriage, and develops an unhealthy obsession with Lisa and her friends in Eden Hill.
Alongside a colourful cast of friends and family, Kate, Lisa, Ben and Martin are living proof that older does not always mean wiser because in Eden Hill, there’s temptation around every corner.
Beverley Harvey (Bev to her friends) hails from the corporate communications world. She worked first in advertising in a variety of support roles, before moving to PR where she trained in a London agency before becoming freelance in 2001.
After threatening to write a book for years, Bev finally swapped PR campaigns for plot lines with the completion of her debut novel ‘Seeking Eden’.
When not writing – or reading, Bev enjoys listening to rock and indie music, cooking, baking, and keeping fit. An animal lover and part-time dog walker, she is inspired by nature, art and life’s daily trials and tribulations.
Born in Yorkshire, and raised in South London, Beverley now lives in Kent with her partner Mark and their naughty Jack Russell Terrier, Brodie.
Seeking Eden will be published by Urbane Publications on 6th July 2017.
