On the morning of Lily's 25th birthday, it's time to open the very last letter written to her by her beloved mother, who died when she was eight.
Learning more about the first and only real love of her mum's life is a revelation. On the same day, Lily also meets Eddie Tessler, a man fleeing fame who just might have the ability to change her world in unimaginable ways. But her childhood friend, Dan, has his own reasons for not wanting Lily to get too carried away by Eddie's attentions.
Before long, secrets begin to emerge, and Lily's friends and family become involved. In the beautiful Cotswold village of Stanton Langley, nothing will ever be the same again....

"Bursting with humour, brimming with intrigue and full of characters you'll adore." (Heat)
"Mansell creates wonderful characters and believable storylines that capture both your heart and imagination from the off." (Sun)
"Jill Mansell keeps on getting better every time...smart and grown-up." (Good Housekeeping)
"A warm, witty and romantic read that you won't be able to put down." (Daily Mail)
Yes to both
I find it interesting that Jill Mansell has a bit more substance than much chick-lit. It's not my favourite genre.
Yes, well done.
No... though I might buy another book with this duo.
This was a good story and well told.
Love love this story, funny, witty, and heart warming! This is one of my favourite books. After this review, I'm listening to it again! I love Dan and Lily, especially how witting they comments and joking behaviour! I also like Ed character, I like it how JM didn't create him a bad character to make Lily choices difficult to pick.
A really good book I enjoyed listening to it all the way through would recamend to anyone.
"Predictable but I enjoyed it"
As I have found with all of Jill Mansells books, The storyline was predictable but I enjoyed it and looked forward to listening to it.
"Prepare to be charmed!"
The variety of locations and the friendliness of the village.
Lily - She came across as very loving, giving and happy.
Well she brought a bit more of the plummy accent I suppose rather than my accent!
There were certain laugh out loud scenes, such as the movie premiere and the additional guest!
what a fantastic story to listen to, very well read and a joy to hear
"Well worth a listen"
I really enjoyed listening to this book brilliant story line, and great narration, I would recommend a listen.
Ideal holiday read - predictable but
Sweet - lovely voice really enjoyed listening
I could see this being made in to a TV series
heart warming and amusing from the start to the end. wrapped me up with a glow.
"A fantastic well narrated story."
A beautifully written book and a romantic love story in the background. Highly recommended an audio book suitable for long journeys.
"A bit unrealistic for my liking."
I really struggled to take the narrators male voice seriously. Already struggling with the unrealistic story was made more difficult by the narrator.
I'm sure for some it will be the light hearted romance needed.
"You and Me, Always"
An ideal book to listen to over Valentine's weekend.
I really enjoyed listening to the story.
Highly entertaining and a good read!!!
