Meet the Londons, a family in need of a friend ...
Gerry and Bernie London are proud parents of Tony, Sean and Ned, three wayward lads whose lives have suddenly reached crisis points:
Newly divorced Tony is fantasizing about someone he really shouldn't; prize-winning novelist Sean's got a hot new girlfriend and a dose of writer's block; and Ned's just back from Australia, without the girl he took with him - or a clue what he's going to do with his life.
If that wasn't enough for one household, the Londons also have a new lodger - a mysterious rockabilly called Gervase. Will he turn out to be a friend - or foe - to the family?
Read it in 2 days. I know it's pure fiction, but found some of myself in each of the characters from the London family and the family friend Gervase as well. I guess that is why I found it overall so catchy and touching.
I enjoyed "Ralph's Party", by the same author, but this wasn't as good. An enjoyable enough book, but nothing to shout about.
I love Lisa Jewell ev'ry book's different but with her unique voice... When you have finished it you miss the characters and you would like to know somethin' more about theyr lives. absolutely Lisa Jewell's style's absolutely gorgeous. READ IT!!!!
