About the Author

Lisa Jewell is in her thirties and was born and raised in north London, where she lives with her husband and their baby girl Amelie Mae. She worked as a secretary before redundancy, a bet and a book deal took her away from all that. She is the author of four huge bestsellers: Ralph's Party, Thirtynothing, One-Hit Wonder, Friend of the Family and most recently Vince & Joy.

Reviews

This book shows Jewell coming into her prime - both funny and emotionally satisfying * The Times * Terrific stuff: touching, funny and sentient * Sunday Times * A heart-warming page-turner from start to finish . . . Quite possibly her best yet * Heat * Jewell's readability and emotional intelligence make her the cream of pop fiction * Glamour * The perfect summer read * Marie Claire * Jewell's light style can be deceptive; her anatomisation of twenty and thirty-something urban relationships is at times uncomfortably keen . . . It's a lot of fun * Daily Mail * This novel will make you feel warm inside * New Woman * Praise for Lisa Jewell * - * Addictively readable * The Times * A joy . . . a fun summer read * Guardian * The best romantic comedy we've read in ages * Company * Tackles serious issues with humour - proving that chick-lit can be intelligent, interesting and huge fun * Sunday Express * A triumph * Hello * Top marks. Fantastic * Heat * Lovely * Daily Telegraph * Moving and intelligent * Independent * Magnetic, unpretentious and bursting with one-liners * Cosmopolitan * Fans of chick-lit will understand when I say that this is a book you simply disappear into * Sunday Telegraph *
