Apokeri Bay: How far would you go for love?

Escape to Greece with an irresistible page-turner about life and love, friendship, guilt, betrayal and heart-wrenching decisions that will keep you guessing to the very end.


Five days tucked away on a Greek island. Time enough for Anna Jenkinson to determine her future. And then return home.


But when she unexpectedly falls in love with the quaint seaside village of Apokeri, a new life beckons. And nothing will ever be the same again.


Apokeri Bay is thought-provoking and uplifting women’s contemporary fiction. This debut novel is the first part in an exciting trilogy.

As temperatures dropped at home, I found sunshine in this page-turner which transports readers to glorious Greece ... This feel-good debut is perfect for all lovers of women's contemporary fiction, or anyone seeking sunshine.

Hi there,

Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m really excited about the Apokeri Bay series and I hope you will be too.


Twists, turns and intrigue. Facing down fears, overcoming challenges and coming out the other side stronger.


I want inspiring, uplifting and thought-provoking fiction. Where vivid characters battle with themselves and others, strive to be better and find hope, love and friendship.


I’ve taken what I love from great stories to create my own. It begins with Apokeri Bay.

About Jackie

I’ve always loved reading and as a kid I adored the wonderful world of our local library.


Each week, I’d pull out copy after copy till I had them. Three precious books.


The walk home took forever as I was so impatient to get back and dive into those new stories. And that love has never left me.
