Sarah Broadhurst's view...

One of our Books of the Year 2013.

University chums, Julia and Toby, back then had a fumble, went their separate ways and are now the best of friends. Then Toby gets dumped, they have an epiphany and a romantic weekend in Brighton. From the start we know they were right for each other so for them to also work this out early on in the novel means we have trouble ahead ... and trouble we certainly have. This is a pure delight. Toby is an old-fashioned, decent bloke, Julia a stubborn, modern girl. How they get it all by the end is beautifully handled with some unexpected, humorous and emotional moments, all thrown into a fast-moving plot. I loved it.

July 2013 Debut of the Month.

Synopsis

Two for Joy by Helen Chandler

Julia and Toby have been friends for years, but apart from a couple of drunken snogs in their university days, there's never been anything more than friendship between them. It's only when Toby goes through a dramatic break up with his gorgeous ballerina girlfriend Ruby, that he and Julia realise they're meant to be together. Then Ruby drops a bombshell - she's pregnant - and though he feels torn in two, Toby feels he has to give their relationship another chance. Heartbroken Julia is left to lick her wounds in her little Walthamstow home, thinking she has lost Toby forever. But things soon become much more complicated ...
