Jill's heartwarming, romantic and funny new novel will delight her fans, as Mimi discovers that love doesn't always wait till the timing is right ...
Mimi isn't looking for love when she spends a weekend in Goosebrook, the Cotswolds village her dad has moved to. And her first encounter with Cal, who lives there too, is nothing like a scene in a romantic movie - although she can't help noticing how charismatic he is. But Cal's in no position to be any more than a friend, and Mimi heads back to her busy London life.
When they meet again four years later, it's still not to be. Cal is focusing on his family, and Mimi on her career. Then Cal dives into a potentially perfect new romance whilst Mimi's busy fixing other people's relationships.
It seems as if something, or someone else, always gets in their way. Will it ever be the right time for both of them?

Mansell (You and Me, Always) highlights the charm of a village in the Cotswolds and the missed opportunities of love following tragedy. Publicist Mimi Huish travels from her home in London to visit her father, Dan, and his boyfriend, Marcus, who have recently moved to the quiet village of Goosebrook. While walking from the closest train station to Goosebrook, Mimi meets Cal Mathieson and his dog, Otto, who accompany her into the village. Mimi, Dan, and Marcus visit the local pub to meet the villagers, and they become acquainted with Cal, his wife, Stacey, and other Goosebrook neighbors. When tragedy strikes and both Stacey and Dan are killed in a car accident, Mimi tries to console Marcus and Cal. After Mimi takes a new job with novelist CJ Exley and travels to Puerto Pollensa, she stays in touch with Cal, eventually finding an opportunity for them to explore if their mutual friendship could spark romance when Mimi travels back to Goosebrook. Mansell's latest is a moving story of characters going forward after facing life's frequent ups and downs and finding enduring relationships. Her fans will be thoroughly satisfied with this heart-wrenching novel.

As usual, the characters are well-developed and the story moves you along with it. Couldn’t be happier with the ending while being sad that we must leave them to carry on without us.
