The Neighbours, Paperback / softback Book

The Neighbours Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'The writing is warm and witty and I quickly grew to love the characters.' Beth O'Leary, author of The Flatshare 'A feat of a debut!' Laura Jane Williams, author of Our Stop To get up from rock bottom, you've got to take the stairs... Some women have it all. Others are thirty-four and rent a tiny flat alone because they recently found their long-term boyfriend in bed with their boss.

Ginny Taylor is certain her life can't get any worse.

But then she meets her downstairs neighbour... Cassie Frost was once a beloved actress, but after a recent mishap she desperately needs a new publicist. And Ginny is a publicist who desperately needs a job - but can she be persuaded to work for the prickly woman who lives below her floorboards?

Ginny and Cassie are two very different women, but they have more in common than they'd care to imagine (or admit). And when their worlds collide, they realise that sometimes - just sometimes - bad neighbours become good friends... A funny, honest and moving exploration of life, love, friendship and navigating the emotional rollercoaster of your thirties... and beyond. Perfect for fans of Beth O'Leary's The Flatshare and Ruth Jones's Never Greener. ___________________________ ** Readers are loving The Neighbours! ** 'If you are looking for a poignant and entertaining romcom with that Bridget Jones vibe, The Neighbours should definitely be on your 2020 wish list.' ***** NetGalley reader review 'It had a great mix of realism and escapism; it was good to read a real representation of mental ill heath alongside real friendship with a good splash of romance.

It left me feeling uplifted and I loved Ginny's journey from the beginning to who she was by the end.' ***** NetGalley reader review 'If you are looking for a fast, engaging, funny and sometimes poignant and heartbreaking romcom, this story is without doubt a great choice!' ***** NetGalley reader review 'You will immediately fall in love with the characters!' ***** NetGalley reader review
