The immensely funny and heartwarming number one bestseller, tells the story of a woman who gets a second chance in life - but will she have the courage to take it?
Molly has traded London for a dream home in the country - except it was her husband's dream, not hers. And David is, well, rather dead now.
So when a distant relative leaves her a London townhouse, Molly is ready to quit 'The Good Life' and return to her good life.
But there's a rather tall, handsome problem - a man who's already living in Molly's new house. And when a face from her past reappears, she's no longer quite sure where she belongs.
Do any of the men in Molly's life have honorable intentions?
Is she ready to ditch muddy wellies for high heels?
Or is she saying goodbye to the delights of country life too soon?

About the Author
'People often ask me if I always had a burning desire to be an author, and the honest answer is no, in fact, it almost happened by accident.
I was working as a copywriter in an ad agency and tired of writing blurb for soap powder, began writing a novel under the desk. I had no thought of publication, was just doing it to relieve the boredom, but I must say it was a bit of a shock when my boss walked in one day and said we're not sure you're entirely committed and gave me the sack!
Actually, I think that galvanized me and I was determined to finish it. I did, but it took a while: I was working freelance, and then pregnant with my first child so it wasn't at the forefront of my mind. When my son was born I discovered babies slept for great chunks of the day, so I revisited it, tapping it onto a computer my brother gave me. (The first draft was in long hand, I'm a complete Luddite by nature, and actually, still write my first draft into note books.)
My husband persuaded me to send it to an agent who took it - amazingly and then a few weeks later I had a publisher too. The Old Girl Network came out about a year later and the first time I saw it in a shop, I was so startled I ran out again! I'm convinced it was easier back then to get published, these days it's far more competitive because there are so many girls doing it I'm glad I started early!
I've written a few more since then, but some things don't change: I still get a thrill when I see them around. I hope you enjoy the books, I certainly have a lot of fun writing them.'
