Love In The Spotlight by Julia Sutton


When Elizabeth Ryan is demoted on Christmas Eve, she resigns herself to a dismal future: selling kitchen utensils in a large department store.

The New Year looks bleak, but a chance encounter on a karaoke evening at her local pub introduces her to the glittering world of showbiz. The Rebels are an up-and-coming pop band who are preparing for a whirlwind tour of the UK. After some persuasion, Elizabeth auditions and is astonished when she is taken on as their backing singer.

Leaving her sleepy Cornish fishing village behind, Elizabeth moves to the manic noise of London. Catapulted into a world of fame, will she succeed in the dazzling world of music and open her heart once more to the possibility of love?

About the author by the author

Hi there, I was born in 1972 and live in Wolverhampton, England with my husband, two children, an energetic Border Collie and two frisky chinchillas. I studied for an English degree at the University of Wolverhampton and wrote my first novel in 2014. I am now the author of six adult novels and currently working on my seventh. I also love writing picture books for young children and am hoping to have them published in the future. I enjoy drawing, cooking, walking and watching films. Animal welfare, taking care of the environment and being kind to people interests me 🙂

My thoughts

This was a totally fun read! Elizabeth’s journey from the ordinary was an exciting one to follow. I loved her comedic interactions and the fact that the story started around Christmas and New Year.

The gorgeous Cornwall setting was a stark contrast to the excitement of the big smoke. ‘Love in the Spotlight’ is full of laughs and it follows the dream. There was a special moment in the book that involves Elizabeth’s workplace and I was absolutely elated when it happened.

Through the giggles, Julia explores the theme of grief and how a person finds a way of moving on. Delightful!

Thanks for reading!
