"Sweet Talk" is a collection of 21 feel-good tales guaranteed to raise your spirits. Written by prolific short-story writer, Samantha Tonge, each one exudes gentle humour and warmth. So curl up on the sofa, sip your hot chocolate and settle down for an uplifting read. In `Sisters, Sisters' a disco-dancing stick insect brings together two very different siblings. Thanks to magpies and horseshoes in `Luck O'the Irish', a romance blossoms. `Coco and `Biscuits' unites a fussy grandmother and an old rescue cat with a keen left hook. Will the return of an abandoned shoe lead to love, in `The Last Dance'? And having sworn off men, how will the heroine cope when she meets her ideal partner in `The Ultimate Hero?'
To brighten up your rainy days, why not treat yourself to "Sweet Talk"?
