Trig Point


Two years into their marriage and Andrew and Roberta are holding things together… just, and mainly because of the twins and Hazel, the au pair. Life goes on but they need something more, excitement, a challenge, fresh opportunities. Andrea’s no help, an overly attractive girl with deep feelings for Andrew that show no signs of fading.

Their Interior Design business is established and successful and suddenly faces a demanding two weeks in front of the camera as they are selected to appear in a documentary. When the film unit arrives, the very fabric of the Manor’s world is threatened and only the promise of a holiday in Ireland allows Roberta to accept the pressures.

Suddenly matters are precipitated into momentous events with lifestyle changes for them all - will the subsequent dramatic, mystical and symbolic Irish interlude provide the answers they are looking for? Which girl will achieve the most?

Peter, Andrew’s elder son, returns from his volunteer work abroad to cast further doubt over the way forward but, finally, the Trig Point allegory is revealed.


The latest in the Manor series, 'Benchmark' is becoming a firm favourite with my readers. After 'Contour', a tale of entrancement re-defined' "no punches pulled, convincing yet tender" came 'Trig Point'with its racy story of a young girl's development, and 'Benchmark'delves deep into the mystery of Irish folklore. 'Twelve Girls' has its own emotionally charged benchmark of lives interwoven for the better. 'Windblow' has to be read from cover to cover to appreciate the way deeply established love can overcome even the most demanding of challenges and improve the lot of everyone involved. Soon there will be 'Seeking', different, a pure romance woven with poetry and music and shows the immense power of linked like minds in a fascinating 1970's tale.

Jon Beattiey

Well established as a writer who understands human relationships, Jon Beattiey makes this genre his own, penning great stories to reflect the nuances of individuals interaction primarily but not exclusively in romance.

From a background in industry, management of people and property, then a spell with the National Trust and latterly running his own business, he utilises talents and wide experience to great effect. He relishes the challenge of taking real life scenarios and turning them into the realms of conceivable fiction.

He lives in Bedfordshire with his wife Sue, has three grown-up children and six grandchildren; enjoys gardening, long walks in open country and the challenge of writing in all aspects as well as keeping a business afloat. He recently has taken on the role of mentor to young people wishing to develop their own writing skills.
