What if once in a lifetime happened twice?
Dani Parker had grand plans for her life – but that was 22 years ago. Now she’s a single mother still living in the quaint seaside town of Newbay, still working at the hotel where she got her first ever job. When she bumps into ex-boyfriend Nat, Dani wonders if this might be the start of something not-quite-new. But that’s before she meets his fiancée….
Dani’s daughter, Flossie, is 16 – so she knows best about everything, of course. And her new boyfriend, Jed, is all she could ever want in a man…right?
Flossie’s grandma Jane, a widow of 15 years, firmly believes that lightning never strikes twice. So when she finds herself visiting Bill’s pet shop a little more often than necessary, she refuses to believe that the L-word has anything to do with it.
In a whirlwind of cakes, elopements and more naughty puppies than they can handle, will the three women discover that ‘once in a lifetime’ isn’t quite as rare as they thought?
The wonderful and hilarious new listen from Chrissie Manby, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Jill Mansell and Trisha Ashley.

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman sit across from each other every day…and they hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate.
Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight approach to his job and refusal to smile. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and desire to be liked. Now they’re up for the same promotion, and Lucy, usually a determined people pleaser, has had enough: it’s time to take him down.
But as the tension between Lucy and Joshua reaches its boiling point, it’s clear that the real battle has only just begun….
This best-selling, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy is an unmissable, utterly loveable treat and is perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella’s My Not So Perfect Life or Jo Watson’s Love to Hate You.

Sometimes all it takes to make the world a better place is a small act of kindness….
When Ceri Price arrives in the small seaside village of Dwynwen in West Wales, she only means to stay for a couple of nights – long enough to scatter her mother’s ashes and then go back to her life as a successful makeup entrepreneur. But a case of mistaken identities means she lands a job as the barmaid in the local pub, unexpectedly finds friendship and wonders if love might follow…. But when the plans for a new housing estate put the local woodland under threat, she fears the way of life here could disappear.
Then mysterious acts of kindness start springing up around the village – a string of bunting adorns the streets, a new village signpost appears out of nowhere and someone provides paint to spruce up the houses on the seafront. Who is behind these acts of kindness, and can they help in the race to save the village from the faceless developers?
Welcome to Dwynwen: Village of Love. Where friendship flourishes and love blossoms….
