All You Read Is Love

    From fiction to flowers - there'll be two guests in the studio for next week's show, when June and Sue are joined by Cathy Bramley and Linda Clark...

    If you're looking for ideas for summer reading, Nottinghamshire-based Cathy's books are guaranteed to fit the bill.

    She'll be joining the Girls Around Town in the first hour to talk about how she made the switch from a marketing career to writing romantic fiction and introducing some of her best-loved characters from books such as The Plumberry School of Comfort Food, The Lemon Tree Café and Appleby Farm.

    You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you've lost a friend - Paul Sweeney

    There'll be news too of Cathy's involvement in this year's Newark Book Festival, when she joins fellow writers Jackie Buxton and Eve Makis from 1.45pm to 3pm on Saturday 15 July in the Council Chamber of Newark Town Hall to discuss romance, relationships and contemporary fiction.

    Later in the show, the focus is on all things floral when Linda steps up to the microphone.

    June's been a busy month for Linda, with British Flowers Week and the Lincolnshire Show just two of the events on her calendar. Find out how they both went, how The Spotted Dog Flower Co got its name and how it's grown into 'a real business' since it was first launched in the spring of 2014.

    She'll be sharing details of upcoming workshops and talks and, of course, how you can treat yourself or your friends to beautiful, freshly cut seasonal Flowers From The Farm too...

    Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon; if all goes to plan in her kitchen this week, June will be baking Amaretto Almond Biscuits from one of Cathy's own recipes for everyone to share and Linda's promised to bring flowers as well.

    So all in all the Girls Around Town studio will be even more fragrant than usual next Sunday morning!
