In this enthralling romantic comedy from bestselling author Jill Mansell, the question has to be asked: are there times when it's best to go solo?

SOLO is a delightful romantic novel from bestselling author Jill Mansell, not to be missed by readers of Lucy Diamond and Cathy Kelly.

Mad about a man who's dangerous to know? Surely it's better to go solo...

When Tessa Duvall, a struggling artist, reluctantly agreed to accompany her best friend Holly to a party at the elegant Charrington Grange Hotel, she had every intention of sneaking off early. For parties full of strangers bored the knickers off Tessa and this one proved to be no exception - until she encountered Ross Monahan, whose wicked reputation was as high profile as the hotel he owned and ran with such panache. But while Holly set about ensnaring his reluctant brother Max, Tessa simply accepted Ross for what he was, a sensational one-night stand...until she realised, weeks later, that one-night stands can have far-reaching consequences...

Jill Mansell's delicious bestseller FALLING FOR YOU is not to be missed by readers of Katie Fforde and Veronica Henry.

Because everyone in Ashcombe knows what happened eleven years ago, and as far as her mother's concerned, Marcella would rather tear that family to pieces with her bare hands than see Maddy associate with a McKinnon.It's Romeo and Juliet all over again. Quick, hide those sharp knives and that little bottle of poison...What readers are saying about Falling For You: 'Completely unputdownable. Falling for You explores some extremely serious storylines but in a moving and sometimes humorous manner' Amazon reviewer, 5 stars'Full of warmth and fun and wonderfully familiar, yet with a hint of surprise and suspense as well. Like her other books, this is charming and witty. Another winner from Jill Mansell' Amazon reviewer, 5 stars'This book surprised me so much. Perfection. Beautifully written. Oh and the ending? Mind-blowing!' Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars
