'Gina, a barely 50-something corporate high-flier is embracing her new life with the Dog and becomes an accidental activist – the Fosbe (Friends of Shelly Beach) action campaign leader. She’s cancelled her no-fuss wedding but Gina finds she’s attracted to the charismatic powerful developer planning to bring high-rise to sleepy Shelly Beach. Battle lines are drawn: seaside battlers against a corporate Goliath. A road-kill koala, the endangered growling frog and hooded plovers are enlisted for the cause.' (Publication summary)

'Gina Laurel is ready to move on from her quiet life at Shelly Beach - and she's got the brilliant job offer to prove it. But when her erstwhile lover - and director of the inaugural Shelly Beach Writers' Festival - takes a job in the city, Gina finds herself the last-minute fill-in as director of the chaotic seaside festival.

'Before she can rejoin the rat race, she must negotiate her way through celebrity-author hissy fits, champagne galas, rogue pirates and giant mice . . . not to mention a love/hate relationship with the former festival director.

'As the festival looms ever closer, Gina has some big decisions to make. Is she really ready to swap her ocean view for an office desk and the bright lights of the city?' (From the publisher's website.)

1 4 y separately published work icon The Shelly Beach Writers' Group June Loves , Camberwell : Viking , 2011 Z1758012 2011 single work novel 'What do you do when your husband dumps you for his PA, your company goes broke and your nearly published novel is cancelled?

Gina, a barely 50-something corporate high-flier, is counting her losses when a chance meeting throws a sea change her way. A job as a house/dog-sitter - albeit in a minus one-star leaky cottage in windswept Shelly Beach - seems the perfect opportunity to relax and regroup. But Gina hasn't counted on the locals, and soon finds herself reluctantly convening the writers' group, babysitting, baking, seal-watching, bicycling . . . and perhaps even falling in love.

With a cast of unforgettable characters, The Shelly Beach Writers' Group is an irresistible story of reinvention.' (Source: Publisher's website)
