Promise Me by Jill Mansell 

Fate’s about to make mischief… 

One minute Lou is happily employed, with a perfect flat. The next, her home and job have gone. Suddenly she has to start over. The last thing Lou wants is to move to a tiny Cotswolds village.

She certainly doesn’t intend to work for curmudgeonly eighty-year-old Edgar Allsopp. But Edgar is about to make her the kind of promise nobody could ignore. In return, she secretly vows to help him fall in love with life again.

Foxwell is also home to Remy, whose charm and charisma are proving hard to ignore. But Lou hasn’t recovered from the last time she fell for a charmer. She needs a distraction – and luckily one’s about to turn up.

‘Jill has a great gift for characterisation – nuanced, interesting, believable people but created with a charming lightness of touch . . . wisdom and emotional intelligence’ Marian Keyes, Bestselling Author
