Karen Knighton is a 53-year-old woman starting again after divorce. On her own with two failed marriages behind her and a lifetime of relationship let-downs, she is determined to get her partner choice right this time.

She signs up for online dating and is matched up with 1980s man, an excited sales director, a work acquaintance, a daughter-obsessed dad, an older man, and a one-hit-wonder-has-been rock musician. Her close friends are also searching for love, they all experience a series of spectacularly disappointing but funny dates and unsatisfactory sex.

Inspired to help others beat loneliness, Karen creates a website called 50 Onwards & Upwards. A long-awaited girls get-together ends in a drunken confession, and while attending a local funeral, the details of a secret, passionate affair surfaces. After a short spell in hospital she recuperates on the West Coast, spending a week with her uncle, an artist. Just as life and love start to fall into place she is knocked down again by tragic news.

A man dies and Police make a local arrest and a huge investigation ensues.

It is onwards & upwards for Karen, as she explores new opportunities on an East Lothian country estate. Will she find the ‘one’?

Books 1,2 & 3 are available on Amazon in paperback and kindle format. Book 4 is due out late 2019.
