Beth Corby

Beth Corby began life in a small Welsh mining village, and pursued her interest in music through to a PhD. Finding academic writing too constrictive, she tried writing creatively and fell for comedic storytelling and fiction at the first pen stroke. She relishes time writing, daydreaming, plotting and capturing those moments when her characters misbehave.

Where There’s a Will . . . is Beth’s brilliant debut novel about Hannah, a twenty-five year old woman who is left an unusual bequest by an estranged great uncle to experience life in all its ups and downs. Where There’s A Will . . . will be published in May 2019 in ebook and September 2019 in mass market paperback by Hodder.

Twenty-five-year-old Hannah has spent the last few years jumping from degree to degree, from job to job, searching for her passion in life – but nothing seems to be going her way. So when her rich, eccentric great-uncle Donald leaves her a mystery bequest in his will, she’s gobsmacked. But there’s a catch: before she can find out what she’s inherited, she must undertake a series of unknown tasks alongside Donald’s (rather gorgeous) PA, Alec. As the tasks progress and she and Alec grow closer, Hannah begins to think that Donald’s real gift to her might have more to do with love than money . . .But not everything is as rosy as it seems. Hannah’s pretty, overbearing sister Lauren turns up and makes a determined beeline for Alec, and her cousin Nick, furious that he’s been overlooked in the will, is prepared to go to any lengths to get his hands on what he sees as rightfully his – even if it means exposing his family’s deepest, darkest secrets along the way.This funny, romantic and uplifting novel is perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Cathy Hopkins and Anna Bell.
