Guest Post: Introducing the TOP-SECRET FINAL INSTALMENT of the bestselling Chocolate Box Girls series by Cathy Cassidy

Cathy Cassidy wrote her first picture book for her little brother when she was eight or nine and has been writing fabulous stories ever since. Her books have sold over one million copies in the UK alone. She is the bestselling author of ‘Dizzy’, ‘Driftwood’, ‘Indigo Blue’, ‘Scarlett’, ‘Sundae Girl’, ‘Lucky Star’, ‘Gingersnaps’ and ‘Angel Cake’. Today we’re happy to reveal the cover for the final instalment in her bestselling Chocolate Box Girls:



After the amazing twist at the end of ‘Sweet Honey’, the sixth and final book in Cathy Cassidy’s Chocolate Box Girls series follows Jake, the Tanberry sisters’ newly discovered half-brother… As if the bombshell that he had three half-sisters wasn’t enough, Jake’s life in London is turning into a nightmare. He has nowhere to run – except for maybe his new family in Somerset… But Jake knows next to nothing about the Tanberrys. Will he be welcome there? And even if he is, can anyone really help him turn things around?

And if you can’t wait till next June when ‘Fortune Cookie‘ is finally released, you’ll be pleased to know that there will be a new e-short from Cathy coming in October – ‘Moon and Stars’ sees Finch return to Tanglewood, just in time for Halloween…
