The Woman Who Felt Invisible by @Lizzie_Chantree #NewRelease

There are some people who you know, without a second glance, that you are going to be happy to help, and one of those, for me, in Lizzie Chantree.

Now, we haven’t met IRL, but have been social media compadres for a good couple of years, and I have read a few of her books, including her non-fiction, Networking For Writers. I’ve also been a member of her Facebook writing group, where she is a constant source of motivation.

Now, our busy Lizzie has got a new release out… on November 23rd, and it sounds like it will be a wonderful read!

A gorgeous romantic story of love and new beginnings. Learning to love herself and be content on
her own is the first step. But will Olivia be able to leave her past behind, follow her heart and find
lasting happiness? A read full of humour, romance and tear-jerking reality, from international
bestselling author, Lizzie Chantree.

Here’s the blurb!

The Woman Who Felt Invisible

Have you ever felt invisible? 
Working as a stationery supervisor and a sitter to a pair of internet famous, delinquent dogs,
wasn’t how former cyber-specialist, Olivia, imagined her life turning out. 
Working in a tiny cubicle with a decrepit computer and being overlooked had suited her for a
while, but now she’s fed up, lonely and determined to make the world ‘see’ her again. 
Old school friend, Darius, wants to fill Olivia’s days with romance, but their love of technology
has taken them on very different paths. 
Gorgeous undercover policeman Gabe, is steadfast in finding out if Olivia was part of an online
scam, but something doesn’t feel right and he suspects someone else was manipulating her life. 
Can love blossom from the most deceptive of starts? And can someone who feels lost, find a
way to flourish against all odds?

Releasing on 23rd November. Purchase, here

Lizzie has been kind enough to provide an extract from the book for you to peruse:

This was it. This was Olivia Tenby’s life, now. This was how low she had come. At the
age of forty-one, she was sweating her guts out in a house that felt like a furnace, babysitting
two delinquent Labradoodle dogs called Bertie and Belle, while their owners swanned around
getting even richer somewhere else. Wiping her palms across her face, feeling glad she’d
discarded her top so that she couldn’t drip on it, she pressed a button. Music blared out of
speakers set into the ceiling. This house had everything – lights that came on when you spoke
to them, a vacuum cleaner that tripped you over while it scurried along the floor of its own
accord, and a fridge that dispensed perfectly shaped ice cubes into crystal glasses.

Olivia looked around furtively for a moment, and then laughed and decided to go for it. Her
job as dog sitter extraordinaire had begun two weeks ago. She’d been told to entertain the
excitable animals in any way she could think of, as they were naughty and destroyed
everything while the owners were out – which they always were. Olivia hadn’t even met
them, which was baffling. They left her notes with instructions on how to stop the dogs
eating the walls and making a mess of the thick pile carpets. She actually quite liked the job,
it was as easy as walking in a straight line. Then she thought about how wobbly she always
was after three vodka and cokes, and quickly pushed that picture aside. The dogs were bored
and, although her job included giving the house a cursory swipe with a duster, it was always
immaculate when she arrived. Something was a bit weird, though, as the place was incredibly
hot. The dogs liked to slobber all over her, making her even hotter. So she’d taken to
stripping off as soon as she sat down with the pooches, otherwise she’d probably pass out and
be found weeks later, mummified in dog hair.
