Guest Post - Whats in a Name? by Sarah Bennett - Blog Tour

Each writer has their own process for creating a story. Mine always start with a name. I know some people can be chapters into their draft before they settle on a name, but I can’t really get anywhere until I have the names of my principal characters. I love history and ancient myths so I’m often drawn to unusual names which is how the three sisters in Butterfly Cove ended up being named after a set of Greek goddesses – the Horae.

Mia is Eunomia (Order), Kiki is Diké (Justice) and Nee is Eirênê (Peace). Of course the only person who calls them by their full names is their father, but I like the fact that the happy ending for each of them ties into the meaning of their names.

When we first met Mia, things were pretty chaotic and with Daniel’s help she brings her life and her home into order and through that regains her strength and resilience. Mia is definitely the backbone of the family and she needs to see her sisters settled and happy before she can really know true happiness.

Kiki was in desperate need of a change, her life with her ex-husband was cruel and unhappy. As we watch her blossom through the series, she finds confidence, new hope and you will see her finally deliver justice for herself.

And then there’s Nee. It’s so hard to find a balance between life and ambition, I think especially for young women, and she makes a terrible personal sacrifice because she believes she has no choice. Her story was the hardest of the three to write, and I hope you agree that she thoroughly deserves the peace and contentment she finally achieves.

Thank you so much Sarah for explaining your characters names.

All she wants for Christmas…
When talented artist Nee Sutherland returns to Butterfly Cove for her sister’s wedding, it’s only a matter of time before she has to face her own bridegroom – Luke Spenser – the man she impulsively married, then left in the middle of the night.
Nee hasn’t picked up her paintbrushes in months, a part of her is broken. She knows Luke might never forgive her, leaving him was the biggest mistake of her life – but could coming home for Christmas be the best decision she’s ever made?
Maybe all she needs is a little Christmas miracle…
A delightfully feel-good festive romance, perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley, Rachael Lucas and Hilary Boyd.
