A JEWELL of a book...

Lisa Jewell - her books are Jewells, geddit?... oh, never mind..

She's just great - she is strictly Brit-Lit, as some of the best of my choices tend to be, but her books manage to be delicious without being silly, fun without being frilly, and with a dab of reality and social conscience thrown in there too. But which one to pick as a "must read"?  I'll have to go with "Vince and Joy".  I've been doing a lot of these boy/girl books lately. And I love the twist on missed connections in life. Anyhow - here's the scoop on V & J...

Remember falling in love for the first time? Remember thinking, This is The One? Remember life getting in the way? From adolescent snogging to apartment shares, relationships, career crises, and children, Vince & Joy is the unforgettable story of two lives lived separately but forever entwined.  Back in the 1980s, teenagers Vince and Joy met, fell desperately in love, and never quite said good-bye. Now nearly twenty years later they've both begun to ask themselves if that long-ago romance was the enduring love that they've been searching for....

What are you waiting for??? Go get it!...
