The Sweet Spot
The sleepy West Country village of Appleton Vale meets the thrilling, jet-setting lifestyle of international sports stardom head-on in The Sweet Spot, a contemporary tale of intrigue, ambition and white-hot emotion.
The Sweet Spot explores the lives of the villagers of Appleton Vale through their relationships, hopes and dreams. It also lifts the lid on the demanding, uncompromising, sometimes sordid and often hilarious life of a player on tour, uncovering destructive rivalries and taking in some of the most fêted golf courses in the world.
Beautiful, award-winning sports writer Olivia Carmichael, recently heartbroken, escapes the painful memories of her life in London for the tranquility of Appleton Vale, where she sets about unlocking the innermost thoughts and secrets of her next big project: troubled golfing legend, Sebastian Bloom.
Sexy, powerful golf star Sebastian, a former world number one and global icon, has seen his game and his personal life devastated by tragedy. Years of women and partying have taken their toll, dulling, but never soothing the pain of his loss and grief. With his career in tatters, close to breaking point, he meets Olivia and starts the long road back to form.
As the lives of Olivia, Sebastian and the residents of Appleton Vale interweave, passions flare and the stakes rise. Events come to a head at the oldest and most prestigious golf tournament in the world, The Open Championship, where Sebastian’s return to form sets up an explosive clash with lifelong rival Troy McLoud.
