When Annie White steps back onto Cherry Pie Island, it’s safe to say her newly inherited Dandelion Café has seen better days! And while her childhood home on the Thames-side island idyll is exactly the same retreat from the urban bustle of London she remembers, Annie’s not convinced that Owner of The Dandelion Cafe is a title she’ll be keeping for long. Not that she can bear the idea of letting her dedicated, if endearingly disorganized staff lose their jobs. Plus café life does also have the added bonus of working a stone’s throw away from millionaire Matt and his disarmingly charming smile!
One (shoestring budget) café makeover, a few delightful additions to the somewhat retro menu and a lot of cherry pie tastings later, The Dandelion Café is ready for its grand reopening! But once she’s brought the dilapidated old café back to life, Annie finds herself wishing her stay on the island was just a bit longer. She always intended to go back to the big city…but could island living finally have lured her back home for good?

Funny, sad and honest, if you’re excited about David Nicholls’ Us, this is the book for you.
‘So much more than a love story, more of a life story.’
Five years ago at university they had been seven friends that laughed hard and loved harder.
Nicky and Miles were the couple that were always meant to be… Leigha and Adam, not so much…
So when Adam and Harriet grew close during endless days in the library, they did the one thing that changed everything – they kept a secret. And when it came out, it all fell apart.
When the day comes for bridesmaids to be chosen and best men to fulfil drunken promises, Nicky and Miles’ wedding isn’t just a wedding, it’s a reunion – loaded with past hurts, past regrets, past loves…
The Best Thing I Never Had is in turns funny and sad, but always honest, about friendship in all its forms and the practicality of second chances.

Coco Pinchard never experienced life as a single thirty-something. She married young, had a son, and put her dream to be a writer on hold. But now her first novel is published, husband Daniel has greyed nicely into a silver fox, and son Rosencrantz is all grown up. Shouldn’t it be time to enjoy life?
That is, until the annual family Christmas when her hideous mother-in-law Ethel comes to stay, and Coco opens her gift from Daniel. It’s not the jewellery she chose, but an iPhone. This marks the start of Daniel’s mid-life crisis and Coco catches him in bed with a younger woman.
The iPhone becomes a confessional of sorts, through emails to her friends Chris, an ageing trustafarian and Marika a slightly alcoholic schoolteacher. And as Coco’s life unravels, she documents her seemingly endless (and often entertaining!) run of bad luck.
Then she meets the hunky Adam and she’s back in the world of dating as a single forty-something! Read the emails that tell the hilarious tale of Coco picking up the pieces, in this fun, feel good Romantic Comedy. The first book in the bestselling Coco Pinchard series!

Christmas is not Lulu’s favourite time of year. And she can’t yet face the idea of her gorgeous boyfriend Ravi meeting her family. So this year she wants to plan an alternative Christmas. When Ravi suggests they invite Lulu’s best friends – Susannah and Jo – to join them she is unsure at first.
But when Lulu suggests that they all spend the Christmas break in a secluded coastal cottage together, with their partners in tow, they both jump at the chance.
Susannah is back in a relationship with her teenage sweetheart, Grant. And Jo is living with Troy Cooper AKA TC, the soap opera star. And, as of yet, none of the girls have met their best friend’s partners. With the cottage booked, Lulu can’t wait for their festive getaway.
But then disaster strikes. Ravi is mugged on his morning run and ends in hospital the day before their holiday.
Will Lulu still manage to get her perfect Christmas holiday? Will all the couples get along? Or will everything come to a head during their Christmas getaway? This book was previously published as Couple’s Retreat.
