Associate Publisher Lydia Vassar-Smith acquired global rights with the Karen Clarke’s first book, The Beachside Sweetshop, publishing in March 2017 with the second book in the series The Beachside Flower Stall publishing in June 2017.
Lydia said of the deal:
Karen writes charming romantic comedies that have bestseller stamped all over them. Readers will fall in love with the beachside community in Dorset and we cannot wait to publish her.
Bookouture publish many of my favourite authors, so I’m beyond excited to be joining such a wonderful and talented team.
