Prepare to hold onto your hats as Sarah is back in town with her buddy Matt Coyne, 11th July at Linghams bookshop, Heswall

11/07/2024 7:00 pm

We are thrilled to be welcoming both Sarah Turner and Matt Coyne to Linghams to chat about their new books!

Sarah’s new book is ‘On the Edge’

The hilarious and heart-wrenching new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of STEPPING UP and THE UNMUMSY MUM.

Sometimes, in order to move forward, you need to go back. Joni’s always felt like an outsider in her blended family, and as an adult she’s done all she can to avoid them.

The only person she’s remained close to is her beloved Nana. When Nana dies, she leaves behind something unexpected: an itinerary of pre-arranged activities for the whole family to complete over the course of a week. After years of trying but failing to bring Joni back into the fold, this appears to be Nana’s parting shot.

After all, nothing says ‘family bonding’ quite like abseiling and ballroom dancing. With marriage and kids on the horizon, the life Joni’s always dreamed of is finally within touching distance. The last thing she wants to do is revisit the past.

But Joni’s about to discover that a lot can happen in seven days. Nana’s Week of Fun is about to change everything…Praise for Sarah Turner:’Written with such love and heart. Sarah has done an exceptional job of marrying her trademark comedy with deep and raw emotion.


Stop EVERYTHING and read this! Funny, tender and beautifully observed. Loved, loved, LOVED it!’ CATHY BRAMLEY’

A heart-blasting triumph of a novel – wise, witty and wonderfully human.’ ISABELLE BROOM

Matt’s new book is ‘Frank and Red’

Sometimes, the friend you need is the one you never saw coming.

Frank and Red are a mess.

Frank is a grumpy old curmudgeon. A recluse whose only company is the ‘ghost’ of his dead wife, Marcie. He is estranged from his friends, his son, and the ever-changing world beyond his front gate.

And then Red moves in next door.

Red is six. A boy struggling to adjust to the separation of his mum and dad, a new school, and the demonic school bully. Red is curious, smart, he never stops talking, and he’s got a trampoline.
From the moment Red’s blonde mop appears over the top of the fence that divides their two gardens, the unlikeliest of friendships is born.

. . . And it is a friendship that will change both of their lives forever.
