Victoria Connelly Bio


Victoria Connelly is a bestselling author of romantic fiction and women’s literature, including her Austen Addicts and Book Lovers series, as well as many other novels and novellas. Her work is described by readers as “romance-filled page-turners,” and “eloquent, emotive reads”.

Victoria studied English literature at Worcester University, got married in a medieval castle in the Yorkshire Dales and now lives in rural Suffolk with her artist husband, a young springer spaniel and a flock of ex-battery hens. She has written three memoirs of her life in the country.

Her first published novel, Flights of Angels, was made into a film in 2008 by Ziegler Films in Germany. The Runaway Actress was shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Romantic Comedy Novel award.

Victoria loves books, films, walking, historic buildings and animals. If she isn’t at her keyboard writing, she can usually be found in her garden, with either a trowel in her hand or a hen on her lap.

Her latest book, ”One Last Summer” follows three friends through one, long, hot summer.

Harriet Greenleaf dreams of spending the summer in a beautiful ancient priory on the Somerset coast with her two best friends—but her dream is bittersweet. On the one hand, it’s a chance to reconnect three lives that have drifted apart; on the other, she has a devastating secret to share that will change everything between them forever.
