Sarah Broadhurst's view...
As so often happens with these young frothy authors, they grow up and their books grow with them. So 20-plus to 60-plus ladies, this fast, fun, feel-good tale of modern complicated life is for you. She’s lovely.
Comparison: Catherine Alliott, Jane Green, Josie Lloyd & Emlyn Rees.
Similar this month: Chris Manby, Sarah Jackman.
One You Really Want by Jill Mansell
It all starts with a shiny, red, sit-on lawnmower. When Nancy spies her Christmas present from her husband sitting on the lawn, she realises the jewellery she thought was for her must be sitting on someone else. Her best friend Carmen isn't surprised (she never liked Jonathan) and persuades Nancy to leave Edinburgh and come and stay in her luxury London flat - far too vast for Carmen since her husband, millionaire rock star Spike Todd, died. Soon Nancy's met gorgeous Connor O'Shea, who lives next door, and his daughter Mia is matchmaking - not least because she'd like to see the back of Connor's current pushy girlfriend. Meanwhile Carmen, who's always been certain she doesn't want another man in her life, feels a spark when a handsome charity worker called Joe calls round. But Joe's not quite all he seems...
