*FEATURING THE CHARACTERS YOU LOVED IN THE BOOKISH LIFE OF NINA HILL!*
From the author of The Bookish Life of Nina Hill comes a story about friends who become our chosen family, proving that, even as adults, we all need help from time time. . . Perfect for fans of Marian Keyes and Nina Stibbe.

When Laura Costello arrives in downtown Los Angeles, her life has somewhat fallen apart.
Her apartment building has caught fire, her engagement to her high school sweetheart has been broken off, and she’s just been caught in a rare LA downpour and has no dry clothes.
But when she seeks shelter in Nina Hill‘s local neighbourhood bookshop, she finds herself introduced to the people who will become her new family. And as Laura becomes friends with Nina, Polly and Impossibly Handsome Bob, things start to look up.
Proving that – even as adults – we all sometimes need a little help assembling and re-assembling our lives. . .
While I haven’t read the previous book by this author, you do not need to to enjoy this one – however, I enjoyed these characters so much and will definitely grab myself a copy!
This is a slow-burning read which tackles some big topics such as mental health and difficult familial relationships. It wasn’t one I wanted to grab every night like some I read, but it was a welcome, cosy break from my usual list of high suspense, thriller type books. I enjoyed getting to know these characters, who were well written, and couldn’t help but thinking how wonderful a home such as Maggie’s could be!
An easy, sweet and moving read – perfect for your next Summer holiday!
