Can neighbours become more than good friends…
After her fiancé left her, Ali and her daughter Grace enjoyed living in what became known as ‘the Single Mums’ Mansion’. However, with her best friends Amanda and Jacqui moving on, it’s time for Ali and Grace to make their own way. Thankfully, a chance conversation leads to them moving into the infamous South London gated community known only as The Mews.
In The Mews everyone lives in each other’s pockets and curtain twitching is an Olympic sport. The neighbours are an eclectic bunch – from Nick the alleged spy, Carl the gorgeous but clearly troubled Idris Elba lookalike, to Debbie who is about to face the hardest fight of her life, and TV agent Samantha who is not as in control as she likes to pretend.
Each day brings another drama, but along with the tears, real friendships grow. And her neighbours’ problems might unlock the key to something Ali has yearned for all along…
Will these single mums be able to move on from life in the mansion?
Perfect for fans of Marian Keyes, Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Mhairi McFarlane.
Full of Fun & Laughter!
Having really loved The Single Mums Mansion, I was thrilled to bits to get the chance to read the sequel – and it’s every bit as good as I had hoped!
Single parent Ali needs to find a new home; the time to leave the mansion is now – but where will she find somewhere perfect for both her and daughter Grace, and at a rent she can afford? A chance encounter leads her to find her new home in The Mews, a gated community bursting with new people to meet. What does the future hold for them both?
A wonderful follow-up to the original, this novel is packed full of fun and laughter! With an influx of fabulous new characters as well as the originals still in the picture, there are so many opportunities to giggle and grin and author Janet Hoggarth didn’t miss a single one. A great mix of fun stories along with covering a couple of serious subjects, the words just flew by – this is such an easy read. Each character is beautifully crafted, easy to picture and completely believable. The setting is superb, the writing flows easily and it’s such a joy to read from beginning to end. The only thing I wasn’t keen on was the character descriptions at the start; too many details about those I hadn’t yet encountered and in all honesty I just skipped on by. It didn’t affect my enjoyment in the least though, and this is a super five star all-encompassing read.
