Sarah Broadhurst's view...

In alternating chapters of first-person narrative, from the point of view of two devoted friends, Ian and Gemma, we follow the trials of modern marriage and a demanding life. Through infidelity, disillusion, heartache and crisis, we long for the protagonists to sort themselves out. Itâs a case of follow your heart not your friendâs advice. Keebleâs first novel, My Fat Brother, showed lots of promise (seek it out). This one proves he has what it takes.

Comparison: Nick Hornby, Matt Dunn, Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees.
Similar this month: Cecilia Ahern, Matt Beaumont.

Synopsis

A-z Of Us by Jim Keeble

If youâre lost in love, you need The A–Z of Us, a novel that answers those age-old questions: Why canât a man and woman just be friends? Is it really a good idea to have sex with your best friendâs sister? How do you tell your husband that you donât love him anymore?

Ian thinks he has it all mapped out. He has a dream job as a travel writer and heâs dating his dream woman. Everything seems to be on track … until his best friend Gemma calls and he finds himself in unexplored territory, heading for a place where ‘meâ might just become ‘usâ.

Gemma thinks sheâll never need a map again. Not yet thirty, sheâs ended up in exactly the right place – just married, with a great career, and a fabulous almost-renovated house. But when she tells her husband she doesnât love him anymore, Gemma is forced to embark on a journey of the heart for which no maps have been written.

The A–Z of Us is a heart-warming, funny and wise tale of the brave new world of relationships and what to do when the old maps no longer show us the way.
