Authors: Please see our current review policy for more information about the Books of the Week feature. A few months ago, we decided to phase-out Books of the Week and replace it with a new page that we call our Book Shelf. Today is the last time we will feature Books of the Week on Chick Lit Central. The Book Shelf page is updated every Monday. We encourage you to take stop by and check out what we are currently featuring on that page!

School Ties
By Emma Lee-Potter

Downthorpe Hall. A posh public school in the Home Counties. Will Hughes has been installed as the new headmaster - fresh from working in an inner-city Comprehensive. Will knows there will be challenges ahead. Difficult parents, rebellious teenagers, and jealous teachers who will fight his attempts to reform the school. What he didn't expect was a battle for his heart.

But when he meets the fiercely ambitious deputy head Grace Foley, and the brilliantly smart science teacher Henry Mead, Will realises that the ties at Downthorpe are not just the kind you wear around your neck. What follows is a tangle of competing ambitions and desires that will leave Will bemused - and may force him to choose between the job he has always wanted and the woman of his dreams.

'School Ties' is a sparkling romantic comedy that takes the reader inside the cloistered, elite world of a top public school. It introduces a brilliant cast of characters that will entrance and entertain the reader.

School Ties is $2.99 on Kindle.
