AFTER writing her debut novel simply to ‘spice up’ early retirement, expat Jacqueline Carpenter, has gone on to enjoy worldwide acclaim with her sequel, too.

The Olive Press first interviewed the ex-City broker last year when her debut novel Louisa was published.

The historical tale of family life in war-torn Kent had sold really well and is still continuing to receive positive reviews.

With such success, Carpenter decided to continue writing and the sequel to Louisa has just been published.


And Joan is already receiving great reviews, with Sheila Thompson from USA saying:

“Enjoyed Louisa, and this follow up wasn’t a disappointment. Felt you lived there life of ups and downs with the characters. Can’t wait for the next one”

Jacqueline is currently writing the third, as yet untitled, novel of her trilogy.  Both Louisa and Joan are available on Amazon and Kindle.

Hard copies of the book are available in the Mar Menor area at The Post Room, Los Alcazares and Number 6 by Genoa, Mar Menor Golf Resort Boulevard, Torre Pacheco.
