Nicola Gill lives in London with her husband and two sons. At the age of five, when all of the other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers, she decided she wanted to be an author. Her ballet teacher was very relieved.
So very readable, this debut is an amusing, sparkling and smart look at contemporary life. When separate calamities hit publicist Ginny and her neighbour, actress Cassie, they might just find a helping hand closer than they thought. While the friendship between the two women grows, potential love interests also enter their lives. I adore the fact that the occasionally feisty friendship between two neighbours of different ages takes centre stage. Can I say that Cassie rather steals the show with her antics, she certainly made me smirk, but this isn’t all fun and frothy frolics. Nicola Gill takes a thoughtful step into the more challenging and emotional side of life, handling the difficulties experienced with beautiful consideration. Fresh, witty and sharp, yet warm, wise and loving, The Neighbours really is a rather gorgeous read!
'Poignant and wry up-lit at its finest - Nicola Gill is a talent to behold!' LAURA JANE WILLIAMS, bestselling author of Our Stop 'Warm and witty - I quickly grew to love the characters.' BETH O'LEARY, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Flatshare and The Switch You can't choose your family... Jess and Laura might be sisters, but they're very different people. Laura is laid-back, eats cheese in bed, and takes life as it comes. Jess, meanwhile, is the classic overachiever: Chief of Chivvying, Queen of all WhatsApp groups. They're family, but they're not exactly friends. ...but you can let them in. When their mum dies, the sisters struggle to agree on anything, from where to scatter the ashes to whether passed away is an acceptable term. But as life forces them together, Laura and Jess realise: the only way through this is as a team. After all, they're stuck with each other - and drinking wine is more fun as a pair... A funny, tender and thoroughly entertaining read for anyone who loved watching Fleabag, and is a fan of books by Marian Keyes, Fiona Gibson, Rachel Marks, Beth O'Leary and Mhairi McFarlane.
