Book 1
Beaten Track Publishing

The Circle.Nine friends from high school.Nine friends for life.
They had been in their final years of school when it happened. There was a party. Shaunna didn't know who he was; she could only vaguely remember where she'd been and what she'd been up to, and tried to let the memory slip away with the hangover. Four weeks later, she was certain that night was going to be with her forever.
Josh Sandison has spent his lifetime trying to keep his friends together, never forgiving himself for being the one to push George away. Now in their thirties, they reunite in a bid to help Shaunna's daughter establish her father's identity.
But there are secrets and lies that have been lived too long, with the power to destroy friendships for good.

About the author

Debbie McGowan is a social scientist, author and publisher, from the North-West UK, whose personal and academic interests collide in her writing, which is character-driven fiction:

"I try to tell the story of the characters' everyday lives, their personal challenges and achievements. I throw in a few big events along the way - the kind of stuff that happens in real life, but when you read it in fiction, you think, 'Well that's a bit far-fetched.'"

Some things are just meant to be, or sometimes it seems that way. Like old uni pals inexplicably moving to your hometown, or realising that your childhood best friend is the love of your life, or landing a star role in a hit TV series that could well be your autobiography.

Fate, karma, written in the stars, or just bizarre quirks of coincidence?

For better or worse, the events of the next six months will push the friends to the limits. For The Circle can expand and contract, but it is always whole; eternal.

Set over a period of six months (January–June), In The Stars Part I explores the day-to-day lives of The Circle—nine friends from high school, now in their late thirties—following them through a year of celebration, loss, illness and life-changing decisions.

In The Stars Part I is Season Four in the Hiding Behind The Couch Series. This book is also available as six separate episodes.

The story follows chronologically from The Harder They Fall (Season Three), Crying in the Rain (Novel) and First Christmas (Novella). It continues in Breaking Waves (Novella) and In The Stars Part II (Season Five).

For those readers unfamiliar with the series, In The Stars re-introduces the main characters, so you could pick it up from here and perhaps catch up with the previous books later.
