Jack Tate is hopeless…
Everything he touches turns into a disaster, though he does mean well.His business is even less successful than his love life.
Most of the customers in his coffee shop have deserted him for the major chains, leaving him only with the old folk, for the most part, who unfortunately don’t have or spend all that much dosh.
Bracing herself for a trip to the job centre, his underappreciated assistant, Emma, helps Jack realise that the solution could actually be right under his very nose. The last chance to save his failing business could well be the formation of the Isle of Man’s first and only dating club for the elderly: The Lonely Heart Attack Club!
While the majority of his wrinkly client base may be in their twilight years, Jack will soon come to realise that there are still a fair number of tunes left to play on an old fiddle, so to speak.

The perfect, feel-good read to put a huge smile on your face!

◆"J C Williams' books make me a happier person. As simple as that."
◆"Delicious humour mixed with a delightful tale. I loved it★★★★★"
It's not that single mum Charlotte Newman is completely and utterly obsessed with crafting, necessarily.
Sure, she has balls of wool stashed everywhere like a squirrel stores nuts and more needles than a tattoo parlour. But that doesn't mean she has a problem, right?
Finding herself between jobs, Charlotte fills her time teaching crafting skills at the local nursing home. Encouraged by how positively the residents respond, the possibility of a career doing what she adores fills her mind.
The first step towards that ambition is creating a crafting hub for the community – The Crafternoon Sewcial Club.
When a local charity announces a major knitting-themed fundraiser, Charlotte sees the ideal stage to put her new club firmly on the crafting map and drum up new members in the process.
Unfortunately, not everybody is on board with her vision for a crafting club, as it turns out. Indeed, some are even hoping to see Charlotte's dream come crashing down around her.
Still, she won't let a minor issue like that derail her plans…
To ensure victory, then, she'll need to rally her new members and ask her friends from the nursing home to get those needles clicking faster than a hummingbird's wings!If you adore crafting, knitting, sewing, crochet while drinking tea with friends, you'll love this book!
Charlotte, Joyce, Beryl, Larry and the guys from the Crafternoon Sewcial Club are back for another adventure. You can pre-order your copy now and have it on your Kindle on the day of release.
Sew, what are you waiting for...
Until quite recently, Ben Parker was considered, by many, one of the finest bakers on the Isle of Man.
Indeed, his wife was once the first to concur with that accolade, directly attributing his culinary skills to her expanding waistline, in fact. So it was ironic, Ben couldn’t help but consider, that she ran off with the dietician he’d hired at her behest.
And soon, despite having his wonderful daughter Ruby, whom he adored, by his side, he struggled to adjust to life being suddenly and unceremoniously single. As such, it wasn’t long until his once-thriving bakery business started falling apart faster than an overly flaky pastry.
So, with no job to speak of and a dwindling bank balance, Ben needed to sort himself out and get things back on track. And his salvation presented itself in an unexpected form, an ailing campsite he felt confident he could rescue.
Sure, taking over another business would be a challenge, but it was one he was keen to embrace. After all, it wouldn’t be that difficult, would it…?
Well, yes, as it should happen. And it didn’t help matters that certain people were so desperate to see Ben fall at the first hurdle that they’d stop at nothing to derail his plans for his next adventure at Life’s a Pitch.
The gang from the Crafternoon Sewcial Club are back for another adventure!
- "I adore these characters. I feel like I'm there with them, part of the gang!"
- "J C Williams' books make me a happier person. Gentle humour at its best."
- "Fun...feel-good...and lovely. Oh, did I say fun?"
The Crafternoon Sewcial Club’s going from strength to strength, although Charlotte Newman is far from resting on her laurels. And why would she? After all, she’s living her perfect life.
So, when a chance encounter highlights the sorry plight of parents unable to afford school uniforms, Charlotte was itching to develop a solution. And before too long, she’d initiated a clothing exchange programme christened ReCyCool.
Unfortunately, news of her fledgling enterprise was painfully slow to travel around the Isle of Man, with it in real danger of falling at the first hurdle. So if it had any chance of succeeding, Charlotte would have to arrange something spectacular to raise the profile and get the word out.
Then, after considerable deliberation, the solution presented itself, and the wheels of the island’s very own Sewing Bee competition were set in motion. And who better to help Charlotte host the hottest event in the island’s crafting calendar than Joyce, Beryl, Larry and the rest of her Crafternooners.
The gang are back in the latest book of the feel-good, smash-hit comedy
•'This is the funniest series of books I've ever read. End-off!'
• 'You don't need to love bikes or even the Isle of Man TT Races to adore these books. Feel-good brilliance.'
• 'You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll smile but, oh my, it'll leave you wanting more. Heartwarming brilliance and has to be made into a film.'
There’s a sense of giddy excitement wafting through the air as the Isle of Man prepares itself for the annual TT races. And Frank and Stan simply cannot wait.
Also eager for the action to commence is a couple of American filmmakers hoping to showcase the event to a global audience. One of the crucial ingredients in their plan is to recruit a charismatic, go-getting natural athlete to be the poster boy for their project, titled, Isle of Man TT Aces.
How they ended up with Dave Quirk, then, is nothing short of baffling.
Still, with Dave on board and signed up, at least they also get Monty thrown in for free. So, every cloud and all that…
However, with the prospect of fame and fortune on the table, not everybody is pleased for our new pin-up boys. Indeed, there are even some out there who’ll stop at nothing to scupper their onscreen debuts.
So, it’s lights, camera, and action on the Isle of Man TT Aces, but will Dave and Monty be the ones to actually walk down the red carpet…?
The gang from the Isle of Man’s primo detective agency are back for another case!
- "The funniest, cozy mystery series I've ever read!"
- "If you take life too seriously, these books are not for you. If you don't, you'll love them."
- "Inspired comic genius. Simply brilliant."
There’s something of a crime wave in progress on the ordinarily sedate Isle of Man...
The services of the Eyes Peeled Detective Agency are secured by Sir Barrington Hedley-Smythe following the theft of four rare, and exceptionally valuable, bronze busts.
Sam and the team are soon hot on the case, also happening upon a mysterious spate of missing pets in the process. Then, if their caseload wasn’t busy enough, the shocking theft of the iconic Isle of Man Senior TT Trophy is making global headlines, meaning even more potential work for our intrepid team.
Overall, ideal business conditions for an expanding firm of private detectives, you’d imagine?
Well, not so much…
The unwelcome presence of an unscrupulous rival, eager to carve out a slice of the action for themselves, puts the very future of the agency in real jeopardy.Still, the Eyes Peeled team are a resilient bunch who’d pull out all the stops to solve The Case of the Brazen Burglar.
"The feel-good summer read you've been looking for! ★★★★★"
"I love J C Williams! I'm a happier person with his books in my life."
"Deliciously funny, poignant and totally uplifting. I defy you to not smile reading this book."
Libby Tebbit had absolutely had her fill of big-city life.
So, when presented with the opportunity to take over her gran’s shop, The Bookshop by the Beach, she’d have been crazy to turn it down, right?
Idyllic notions of lazy days by the ocean shore, shooing away the surplus eligible bachelors circling around her like squawking gulls, filled her head. These things were certain to await her, she felt confident, in this next glorious chapter of her life – this wonderful seaside adventure on the Isle of Man.
Only her business acumen was about as useless as her choice in men. Still, nothing ventured nothing gained. And, besides, what’s the worst that could happen?
Well, quite a lot as she’d soon discover. In a relatively short amount of time, a business that’d operated fairly successfully for forty years was on its knees – and, sadly, Libby’s dance card was also emptier than her bank account.
She wasn’t ready to let go of her dream so easily. Not just yet. All she needed, then, was a plan to turn around the ailing fortunes of The Bookshop by the Beach, and fast!
The feel-good, romantic comedy read for the summer. If you enjoy Sophie Kinsella or JOJO Moyes then you'll adore this book.
The Lonely Heart Attack Club was going from strength to strength, and the gang were eager to sink their (false) teeth into their next challenge.
After seeing ﬁrst-hand the beneﬁts that internet access has brought to a couple of simpletons like Ray and Grandad, the team set their sights on providing tablet computers to those in the community that would beneﬁt from them the most. However, that would take a serious amount of dosh, so they would need to double their fundraising eﬀorts.
Unfortunately, it would appear that not everyone was on board with the charitable work, and a serious error in judgement threatened to undo all of their good work and leave the charity in ruins.
Still, they were a resilient bunch, and they’d ﬁght on regardless. And the perfect way to drag yourself through a crisis? Another world-record attempt, of course!
- 'This is the funniest series of books I've ever read. End-off!'
- 'You don't need to love bikes or even the Isle of Man TT Races to adore these books. Feel-good brilliance.'
- 'You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll smile but, oh my, it'll leave you wanting more. Heartwarming brilliance and has to be made into a film.'
With their hugely successful ‘Le Mans’ TT now behind them, thoughts turned to their next adventure and, inevitably, also to the topic of their own mortality.
Still, the gang had their first Christmas at the TT Farm to look forward to, and the prospect of entering a team for the next Isle of Man TT races as well. So, on the whole, life was pretty darn good — and especially so, now that wedding bells could also be heard chiming in the distance. It seemed nothing could dampen their sprits…
Until, that is, an old cretinous, cravat-wearing acquaintance appears with an offer they simply cannot refuse, so to speak. Well, they could refuse the offer, of course. But doing so could mean losing all they’d worked so very hard to achieve and leaving them at real risk of having everything come crashing down around their ears.
There were certainly strong headwinds facing them, but Team Frank & Stan would never abandon ship and go down without a fight! And, besides, they’d always have Stella on deck, manning the canons!
