'The writing is warm and witty and I quickly grew to love the characters.' Beth O'Leary, author of The Flatshare

'A feat of a debut!' Laura Jane Williams, author of Our Stop

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...

A funny, honest and moving exploration of life, love, friendship and navigating the emotional rollercoaster of your thirties... and beyond. Perfect for fans of Beth O'Leary's The Flatshare and Ruth Jones's Never Greener.
