Novellas originally published as magazine serials – mostly light hearted family tales.
Bobbi Marsden’s decision to clear out the village pond sends shock waves around the village. What devastating secrets does the pond keep and will it really destroy lives if she goes ahead with her plans? As if she hasn’t enough to worry about, her best friend Gally is on her uppers and living in a leaky old caravan with her Gt Dane, Delilah. Clearing out the pond could be Gally’s salvation – Bobbi saw it in the cards! But she doesn’t really believe in all that – or does she?
