Isabelle Broom, author of three women’s fiction novels and book reviews editor at Heat magazine, has signed a new two-book deal with Michael Joseph.
The deal, for UK and Commonwealth rights including audio, was agreed with Hannah Ferguson at Hardman & Swainson.
Michael Joseph will publish Isabelle’s fourth novel, The Place We Met, set in Italy’s Lake Como, in paperback in November this year and her fifth novel in 2018.
Editor Eve Hall said: "Isabelle is not only a delight to work with but an incredibly talented writer. Her fiction is full of heart, humour and depth, each novel making its mark on you in its own unique way. Every book whisks you away to a new, exotic location and I’m so pleased that Michael Joseph will be accompanying Isabelle on wherever she goes next."
Broom added: "I’m absolutely thrilled to be staying with the Penguin family for another two novels, which I can confirm will be set in yet more exciting and far-flung locations. Eve is such a brilliant editor, so full of insight, enthusiasm and passion, and I feel extremely lucky to have her by my side going forwards."
