"What's In a Name?" Written by Heather Holmes

Check out this amazing fundraiser for the Nelson and Tasman Cancer Society.  Heather Holmes has written and published a novel called "What's in a Name?", a light-hearted, easy read, guaranteed to put a smile on your face! The book is only $20 and 100% of the book is a donation to the Nelson and Tasman Cancer Society. You can buy "What's in a Name" from us at 102 Hardy Street or at our online shop

The book is about the adventures of Prudence Miller, a mildly inefficient tax clerk at the Inland Revenue. One morning, in case of mistaken identity, she is given a small, tightly wrapped parcel, a false passport and a first class ticket to the sun. Rather than hand these into the police, she packs a bag and sets off for the airport. A decision that takes her on a roller coaster adventure ride with Lady Luck firmly at her side.

You can also buy the e-book "What’s In a Name" on Amazon and me-books.  We receive 50% from these sales.
