Between an accidental dalliance with a pupil s dad, helping close down a drug ring and keeping up with her closest girlfriends, Grace is busier than ever.But as she spends more time with David, her determination to go it alone begins to waver…Praise for Julie Houston: A warm, funny story of sisters and the secrets they keep -Sheila O Flanagan Warm, funny and well written, with a page-turning plot, this book has everything! I loved it! -Katie Fforde Julie Houston at her best - heartfelt and hilarious -Sandy BarkerJulie Houston lives in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire where her novels are set, and her only claims to fame are that she teaches part-time at Bridget Jones author Helen Fielding s old junior school and her neighbour is Chocolat author, Joanne Harris. Julie is married, with two adult children and a ridiculous Cockerpoo called Lincoln. She runs and swims because she s been told it s good for her, but would really prefer a glass of wine, a sun lounger and a jolly good book - preferably with Dev Patel in attendance.
