Jill Mansell's books are full of love, life and friendship and have been bringing joy to readers for twenty-five years. She started writing fiction while working in the NHS, after joining a local creative writing class. She has since written over twenty Sunday Times bestsellers, including THIS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING, THE ONE YOU REALLY WANT and YOU AND ME, ALWAYS, and her books have sold over 11 million copies around the world.
Jill's hobbies include buying stationery, particularly magical new colours of ink for the fountain pen she uses to write all her books - Jill is one of the few authors who still write their books by hand. Jill also loves people-watching and finding new characters to put in her novels. So when you're out, make sure to always be on your best behaviour. And beware of beady-eyed authors carrying notebooks . . .

THE SUNDAY TIMES NO. 3 BESTSELLER!
Heartwarming and joyful - the brand new romantic comedy from the Sunday Times bestselling author of THIS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING. An irresistible read for fans of Lucy Diamond and Katie Fforde.
'Mansell has delivered another winner with this compelling, thoughtful, emotionally intelligent book about love, friendship and not giving up' Daily Mail
Mimi isn't looking for love when she spends a weekend in Goosebrook, the Cotswolds village her dad has moved to. And her first encounter with Cal, who lives there too, is nothing like a scene in a romantic movie - although she can't help noticing how charismatic he is. But Cal's in no position to be any more than a friend, and Mimi heads back to her busy London life.
When they meet again four years later, it's still not to be. Cal is focusing on his family, and Mimi on her career. Then Cal dives into a potentially perfect new romance whilst Mimi's busy fixing other people's relationships.
It seems as if something, or someone else, always gets in their way. Will it ever be the right time for both of them?

'A warm, engaging read'
Jill's Mansell's heart-warming new book is the feel-good novel of 2020. A beautiful Cornish setting, a chaotic family, a woman who's had enough of romance - or has she? Not to be missed by readers of Katie Fforde and Millie Johnson.
The trouble with secrets is that you can't guess what the consequences will be . . .
Lainey has just lost everything. Luckily one little fib (OK, quite a big fib) helps nail her dream job. Soon she's living in a stunning house by the sea, fending off obsessed fans for a retired - if far-from-retiring - actor and organising his charming but chaotic family. Yes, everyone thinks she's part of a couple and it's tricky keeping this secret. But at least she's not looking for love: with her disastrous relationship history, men are definitely off the agenda.
Except Seth, the actor's grandson, really is very attractive. There's growing chemistry and a definite connection between them. What would happen if he knew the truth?
But Lainey's not the only one with a secret - it seems everyone has them! And they're all about to start unravelling...
