Love them & leave them by Sue Shepherd

About Love Them and Leave Them: Sometimes you have to leave the one you love … sometimes you’re the one who’s left behind. The new heart-warming and heart-breaking romantic comedy from the No.1 bestselling author of Doesn’t Everyone Have a Secret?

On his way home, Ed makes a split-second decision that changes the lives of all those who love him.

Six years on, Ed’s daughter, Jessie, is stuck in a job with no prospects, her dreams never fulfilled. It will take more than her unreliable boyfriend, Chris, and temperamental best friend, Coco, to give her the confidence to get her life back on track.

But what if Ed had made another decision? It could all have been so different …

Six years on, Ed’s daughter, Jessica, has a successful career, loving boyfriend, Nick, and a keen eye on her dream home. But when new clients, a temperamental Coco, and her unreliable boyfriend, Chris, walk into her life, Jessica’s perfect world soon starts to unravel.

Love Them and Leave Them is a story of love, families, friendship and a world of possibilities. Whichever decision Ed makes, the same people are destined to come into his daughter’s life, sometimes in delightfully different ways. And before they can look forward to the future, they will all have to deal with the mistakes of the past.

 Want to know more? Below is an extract from Love them & leave them to tease you into the novel, if you are like me and  love getting tasters for books before you get stuck in, have a read......


There are moments in all our lives when we make important decisions ‒ applying for our dream job, moving house, deciding to start a family, to name just a few. These moments are huge, and they don’t pretend to be anything less.
On the other hand, there are other moments that are just as noteworthy, and yet they masquerade as trivia. We make choices all the time. Left or right? Stay or go? Choices that appear insignificant, when in reality they may be just as pivotal as the ‘important’ ones. The consequences of these seemingly insignificant choices can be far reaching, and can, on occasion, affect people we’ll never even meet.

Get free stuff for Valentines Day

To many people, Valentine's Day is the one day they get to show how much they love their other half. We go all out wanting to express our love and although these gestures can be done on any other day in the year, the romantics in us fall in love with the idea of valentines day and the sweet romance of it all. However, the cost of fresh flowers, booking dinner for two in exclusive restaurants, or even chocolates can be too much for a single day and money should never be a factor in how we show our love and that we care about that special person in our life; some creativity can save the day. If you do not have the money or time to buy already made valentine's gifts, there are plenty of ways in which you can make it happen.

WOW FreeStuff gives you a chance to spoil your lover without spending any cash. Here, you will find plenty of free stuff that other people want to give off and can use these as presents for your lover as long as he/she does not mind.

Cashback websites and a few apps also allow users to get Valentine's Day goodies (£150 worth) without using any money. Some of the gifts you can get from these sites and apps include footballs, flowers, and free toiletries, to name but a few.

The Valentine's Day Card
Need a card for Valentine's? No problem, signup with Topcashback to claim a Moonpig card worth £10 within the same day.

There are plenty of ways to get your valentine's chocolate without spending a dime. Shopmium offers just what you need. All you have to do is sign up for their shopping deals and pass on a referral code to someone else, say a friend. Doing this earns you a free Lindt chocolate bar worth £1.99. You can also get a free box of Thornton's Chocolate if already a member of Topcashback.

If looking for something a little more exquisite, you can then sign up with Quidco to get a free £12.50 Valentine's Box. The Chocolate Fix is also ready to give you heart chocolate lollipops as a thank you for signing up with them.

The Food
If your loved one isn't into chocolate binge-eating, you should then try a takeaway. Quidco offers free orders from Hungry House, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Dominos, or even Just Eat worth £15. These offers are available as soon as you sign up to Quidco.
Of course, your other half expects flowers from you. If you have never used Topcashback before, you can then order a bouquet of flowers online at Next to get a chance for a £10 cashback.

The Gift
Getting an amazing gift for your other half has never been easier with The Body Shop. All you need to do is print of a voucher from their Facebook page then redeem it for a £26 'Drops of Light' cream and serum in their local store. If your boyfriend is more into football, you can then get him a £50 UEFA Champions League football from Walkers. All you need to do is submit an amusing photo of the Walkers Facebook page.
