Back of the book :
To get up from rock bottom, you’ve got to take the stairs…
Some women have it all. Others are thirty-four and rent a tiny flat alone because they recently found their long-term boyfriend in bed with their boss. Ginny Taylor is certain her life can’t get any worse. But then she meets her downstairs neighbour…
Cassie Frost was once a beloved actress, but after a recent mishap she desperately needs a new publicist. And Ginny is a publicist who desperately needs a job – but can she be persuaded to work for the prickly woman who lives below her floorboards?
Ginny and Cassie are two very different women, but they have more in common than they’d care to imagine (or admit). And when their worlds collide, they realise that sometimes – just sometimes – bad neighbours become good friends…
What I think :
I really loved this ‘little hug’ of a book !
In this lovely tale we meet Ginny, who’s 44, she thought she had it all but one day she finds out that she hasn’t. She comes home to find her boyfriend in bed with the boss ! But she’s still lovely.
And then there is Cassie, who is 55, she used to have a bit of a career in films, well a bond movie. But, now she’s in reality TV. She’s got a really vicious tongue and is not very nice really.
You wouldn’t really expect these two ladies to be friends in any lifetime, they’re just too different. Slowly but surely, as it does in block of flats in London, circumstances bring them together and it works …
This is a gorgeous book about friendship in the most unlikely of places, and of those friends helping you through all of what life throws at you. It has some really ‘laugh out laugh’ bits but some really sad bits that make you reach for the tissues.
I don’t want to give too much away but its a good’un !!!
I really liked it and like I said at the start of this review, its like a warm hug on a winters night.
I give this book a well-earned 8/10 (5 Stars)
