The Gessami Residence is a story of mature women still trying to live life to the max. It’s about enjoying life, having fun with friends and finding love. Jenny has endured three fairly miserable years following the sudden death of her husband, Paul. At forty three – with her sons at university – the only thing keeping her sane are her three best friends Amanda, Beth and Rose. After deciding that what they really need is a girl’s trip away, they escape their uneventful lives on a holiday. After all, forty somethings still like to drink, flirt, have meaningless sex and enjoy themselves – right? Rose organises the trip and keeps the details secret until they meet at the airport, but she shocks them with her destination choice – Ibiza. Reluctantly they set off, but on arrival it’s immediately apparent they have every intention of enjoying themselves to the maximum. After the first night of heavy drinking, Jenny, feeling the pace, has to excuse herself and return to their hotel. She is mortified when she falls ungracefully into the sand and is confronted with Ethan, a handsome stranger, who helps her back to her room. As the holiday continues, she keeps crossing paths with Ethan. He invites them all to dinner, for a trip on his yacht and to spend a week of their holiday at his new boutique hotel, ‘The Gessami Residence’. Ethan is not what Jenny was expecting from this holiday, but the more time she spends with him and their friends, the more she realises all she has missed since her husband died.

Jane L Gibson
Katharina Stuart, nicknamed Kat, has a pretty normal life. She has a great job in London writing for a magazine and comes home every night to her beautiful apartment and her fiancé John. Most people would envy her, but Kat has always felt like something is missing from her life... After being assigned a new set of stories, from which she is struggling to gain any enthusiasm, Kat is given a new lead on an old property for sale called ‘Northfield’. It intrigues her that the old butler still lives there and she finds a flurry of excitement that this could be her new story, so proceeds to try and get him to agree to an interview. Northfield does not disappoint in any way. It is old, in beautiful grounds and the grandeur it radiates has Kat captivated from the moment she arrives. She befriends the charming George who still lives there, and as he gains her trust he allows the story of how he came to live there to unfold. He is not alone in the house, and his unbelievable tale of witches, magic and spells makes Kat begin to question her own beliefs... It’s not long before Kat experiences the magic of Northfield first hand, and as she spends more time with the occupants of the old house she so desperately wants to help her new friends. But in doing so, her relationship with John becomes strained, with the added complication of Nadine, his work colleague... Will Kat decide to follow her heart and her dreams, or follow her head and the voice of reasoning? Whatever path she chooses, she knows that her decision will change her life forever. A Different Reflection is a modern day fairytale that captures the lives of regular people alongside romance and fantasy.
