Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Underlying the comic writing and astute observations of this lovely book is a seam of sadness that made me ponder on how difficult it is to find the perfect partner and how life, as we bumble along, can so often throw you in the wrong direction. Lisa beautifully touches the nerves of modern living, she is very good.

Comparison: Chris Manby, Carmen Reid, Marian Keyes.
Similar this month: Wendy Holden, Melissa Hill.

Synopsis

Vince and Joy by Lisa Jewell

Remember having sex for the very first time?
Remember thinking: this is The One?
Remember life getting in the way…?
For Vince and Joy, finding your destiny is easy.
Following it, isn’t…

From teenage love in an eighties holiday park to flatshares, relationships, career crises and children, Vince & Joy is the unforgettable story of two lives lived separately but forever entwined; and asks the question: how do you know when something is really meant to be?

Reviews

Well-written, engrossing popular fiction, pack this one in your suitcase--you won't be sorry. --Birmingham Post


About the Author

Lisa Jewell

Lisa Jewell had always planned to write her first book when she was fifty. In fact, she wrote it when she was twenty-seven and had just been made redundant from her job as a secretary. Inspired by Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, she wrote the first three chapters of what was to become her first novel, Ralph’s Party. It went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 1998. Twelve bestselling novels later, she lives in London with her husband and their two daughters. Lisa writes every day in a local cafe where she can drink coffee, people-watch, and, without access to the internet, actually get some work done.
