Azur Like It

Azur Like It

Kate, a journalist in a small northern town, is fed up with covering black pudding championships for the Slackmucklethwaite Mercury and living with Mum, Dad and Gran in a semi called Wits End. When evil tycoon Peter Hardstone takes over the paper, slashes budgets and sacks staff, Kate’s career hits an all-time low. Gloom turns to glamour once Hardstone’s sexy son arrives to work on the Mercury. And when Kate’s sent with him to cover the glittering Cannes Film Festival, she can’t believe her luck. But it’s not all fun and games: behind the glitz and sunshine lies a dark mystery that is Kate’s most challenging newspaper assignment yet.
