Your Place or Mine?

By Julie Highmore

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

Where there's a Will, there's a way...

A wonderfully warm and witty novel about building new friendships - in unlikely places...
When Bea's husband dies, she decides not to be a lonely widow, rattling around her big Oxford house. Instead, she chooses three tenants, each of whom needs her help, and in return offers Bea more affection than her own distant son. Over the years they become something of a strange 'family', until the day they must find a new housemate.

Will needs a place to stay, and expects the usual grimy kitchen and sloppy students. Bea's beautiful house seems too good to be true - until he meets the housemates. They're all at least twenty years older than him, and range from outrageously camp to irritatingly raucous. But somehow he finds he's taken the stunning spare room, and once he's moved in it's hard to escape. His sister, Harrie, falls in love with more than just the house when she comes to visit, and together they're soon caught up in Bea's final secret...

She too had been abandoned and my father understood why. We Wildflowers took her in. My father was my hero, he gave us a golden childhood, but the past was always going to catch up with him ... it comes for us all, sooner or later. This is my story. I am Cordelia Wilde. A singer without a voice. A daughter without a father. Let me take you inside.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLERIf only Essie hadn't written that letter - the one that went viral...The feel-good new novel from Jill Mansell, the bestselling author of MEET ME AT BEACHCOMBER BAY. Not to be missed by fans of Katie Fforde and Lucy Diamond.On the one hand, if Essie hadn't written that letter - the one that only her best friend was meant to see - then she'd still be living like an actual proper grown-up, tucked up with Paul in his picture-perfect cottage, maybe even planning their wedding...On the other hand (if her true feelings hadn't accidentally taken the internet by storm, that is) she wouldn't have moved into the attic flat on the square. She would never have met Conor. Or got to know Lucas...And she wouldn't have found herself falling in love with someone she really, really shouldn't fall in love with... 'One of my favourite writers' Katie Fforde'The queen of witty, heart-warming, feel-good love stories' Red 'Reading Jill is always such a joy!'
