Dangerous liaisons, amorous women, and a sprinkling of witchcraft conspire to confuse Arthur Flynn.

Arthur has always clung to the notion of having one woman in his life, but in this novel "Passionate Arthur Flynn" dangerous liaisons, amorous women, and a sprinkling of witchcraft conspire to confuse him.

With the help of his mother, Arthur earns a place at Cambridge University to work toward becoming a doctor. But between paying for university and his living expenses, finances are a struggle, so he becomes an early morning milkman. Making morning deliveries certainly won’t interfere with his studies … or so he thinks!

Arthur soon finds himself doing more than just delivering milk. He becomes a listener, adviser, confident, and, reluctantly, the heartthrob of the local women. Lust, romance, and the occult combine to make this enthralling novel a must read.

“I found this book to be an interesting read for many reasons. The first is the rock ’n’ roll years historical value. Ever wanted to know what ‘50s youth really got up to? Now's your chance. I am a bit of a stickler for historical accuracy, so I checked Cambridge City out to make sure the facts in the book were right. I am pleased to say they were, and a fun day I had, as Cambridge is beautiful, King's college is awesome, and the copper kettle tea rooms across the way do a mean black cherry cheesecake. Being a woman, I was both fascinated and frustrated by the antics of Arthur Flynn. Men can be so dumb at times when it comes to romance. Best of all, there is a twist to the tale.” – Google reviewer

“I can recommend this book as a very good read…It would make a great film.” – Google reviewer
