I offer you Jane Green.
If you have not read Jane Green in the past – a gentle warning – she is addictive. For those already hooked on her fun, vibrant, moving novels – your new fix is almost here!
Jane Green, was born in London and has lived in Connecticut for seven years. One of the founding writers behind the genre known as ‘chick lit’, Green now writes novels that reflect the lives of real women today, with all the trials and tribulations that come with real life: from in-laws, motherhood, mid-life crises and loss, all of which are told with Green’s trademark warmth, wit and wisdom.

For Callie, love is about looking after her family – her husband and two children – and their beautiful home.

Then Callie gets some life-changing news. And suddenly the whole family is about to understand what ‘love’ really, really means . . .

Jane Green has always been a favourite amongst ‘chick-lit’ readers but we know she pushes out beyond that label. I don’t hesitate recommending Jane Green to those who love Sex and the City, Marian Keyes and Bridget Jones, but I also don’t it think it a stretch to suggest that those who love Anita Shreve, Jodi Picoult or Erica James might find themselves quite enjoying her too!
You deserve a Jane Green break!
