Title: Maximum Exposure
Author: Jenny Harper
Release Date: September 12, 2014
'She’s a professional photographer – but is she ready to expose her heart?
Adorable but scatterbrained newspaper photographer Daisy Irvine becomes the key to the survival of The Hailesbank Herald when her boss drops dead right in front of her. And while big egos and petty jealousies hinder the struggle to save the paper, Daisy starts another campaign – to win back her ex, Jack Hedderwick.
Ben Gillies, returning after a long absence, sees childhood friend Daisy in a whole new light. He’d like to win her love, but discovers that she’s a whole lot better at taking photographs than making decisions, particularly when she’s blinded by the past.
When tragedy strikes Daisy’s family, loyalty drives her home. But it’s time to grow up and Daisy must choose between independence and love.'
Guest Post by Jenny Harper
Daisy Irvine may be a hard-bitten newspaper photographer, but confident though she is in her ability to capture that killer image, emotionally she has a lot of growing up to do.
I like to write about ‘strong women under pressure’. Susie Wallace, a politician in my novel Loving Susie, fits the description admirably, while wind farm engineer Kate Courtenay in Face the Wind and Fly has certainly had to develop a thick skin – her work catapults her into explosive situations.
Daisy, though, is a little different. She grew up with a domineering father and fell in love while she was still a schoolgirl with the gorgeous Jack Hedderwick. She is still young, still vulnerable – and as Maximum Exposure starts, we learn that Jack has left Daisy for someone else and that all her energies are focused on winning him back. However, she faces not only a tussle for love, but also a fight to save the newspaper she works for. And as that struggle unfolds, a love triangle also develops when Daisy’s childhood friend Ben Gillies arrives back on the scene and realises that his feelings for Daisy are more than mere friendship.
And so Daisy has to grow and mature, and make difficult decisions – and maybe realise that love is not the answer to everything.
Or is it?
Maximum Exposure is the third in my ‘Heartlands’ series of novels. The Heartlands (notionally set near Edinburgh, Scotland) is the ancient name for the imaginary area around the fictional town of Hailesbank, the village of Forgie and the council estate called Summerfield. A fourth title, The People We Love will be published in February, also by Accent Press.
Jenny Harper lives in Edinburgh. She is the author of four books about Scotland and Scottish culture, a history of childbirth, and The Sleeping Train for young readers. When she isn't writing, she enjoys walking in the Scottish countryside or anywhere warm, and travelling to Europe, America and India.
