Can love flourish amongst the tree tops?
When pastry chef Twilight Wilson was a young girl, she would hide from school bullies up in the treehouse at the bottom of her garden in her family home in Sussex. It was her special place, and even as an adult she still loves it.
So when her family tell her they can't afford to live there any more, Twilight is devastated. Not only will they lose their home - but the treehouse too!
She comes up with a plan to save the family home - she'll start up a cafe in the treehouse! It's a brilliant idea, and excitement builds as she starts planning the menus, with the help of Theo - a rather attractive man from the gym. But when former school bully Lucy finds out the plan, she starts plotting - and opens her own rival cafe in the village!
Can Twilight save her family home? Will her friendship with Theo ever be anything more? And who will win the cafe wars?
Catherine Ferguson is back in this hilarious, heartwarming read perfect for summer.
Catherine Ferguson burst onto the writing scene at the age of nine, anonymously penning a weekly magazine for her five-year-old brother (mysteriously titled the 'Willy' comic).
Catherine's continuing love of writing saw her spend her twenties writing for various teenage magazines including Jackie and Blue Jeans before getting serious and becoming a sub-editor on the Dundee Courier & Advertiser.
Humbugs and Heartstrings is Catherine's first novel. She lives with her son in Northumberland.
PRAISE FOR CATHERINE FERGUSON
'Witty and fun, this is the perfect holiday read' MY WEEKLY
'I adored every page of this book and can't imagine a more perfect summer read. Gorgeously written, heart-warming and with characters so vividly realised that you just want to hang out with them on a Saturday night. She's already a hugely popular author but this, mark my words, is the book that will make Catherine Ferguson go stratospheric.' Claudia Carroll
'A romantic drama with added laughs' HEAT magazine (FOUR STARS)

'Full of wit, warmth, lots of laugh out loud moments yet with a real gorgeous, valuable message at its centre, this book is crying out for loads of people to read it.'
'Catherine Ferguson's writing is always a joy. It romps along at a great pace and she certainly knows how to make you laugh and cry - sometimes within just a few pages of each other. Highly recommended.'
