Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop: Coffee Cupcakes by Jane Linfoot

The brilliant Lynne Drew, publisher of amazing women’s fiction, is here to give us her view on the hottest trends in commercial fiction at the moment.  #Romance15  OH if only I had a pound for every time someone asks about industry trends. And if only it were that simple – pick what everyone wants and you’d have a bestseller. However, here are a few thoughts … Gone Girl keeps running and running. There’s no let-up in appetite for the domestic thriller – the novel that peers behind the net curtain of married life to see what’s really going on. These novels aren’t traditional crime novels, hinging on detection or motive, and nor do they always feature police investigations. They’re psychological and the appeal lies in…
