Robyn Allen is finally getting closer to her dream of West End stardom. And along with her role dancing in the latest hot musical, she’s being wined and dined by an equally hot man – the wildly successful and well-connected Fabian Carrington. But one slip up and her dreams are shattered, and Robyn has to hobble back to the Yorkshire village of Beddingfield, and the life she hoped she’d escaped.

Moving back into her mum’s house with her recalcitrant teenage sister Sorrel, next door to her older sister Jess who’s fed up with picking up the slack, is not how Robyn pictured her year. But there’s more to come. Sorrel needs a new school, and the school needs a new drama teacher. Despite having vowed never to teach again, Robyn knows she has to support her sister.

So together Sorrel and Robyn vow to take on St Mede’s – home to jokers, tearaways and trouble-makers, but with a hidden heartbeat ready to be inspired. And who knows, the kids might have something to teach Robyn about life too…

Welcome to the village of Beddingfield and the first book in bestseller Julie Houston’s new series set in Yorkshire. Funny, fabulous, heart-warming and hilarious, you’ll never forget the Allen sisters and their one-of-a-kind community. Perfect for fans of Jo Bartlett, Cathy Bramley and Philippa Ashley.

‘There is too much to love about Julie’s latest book. This story of three sisters is funny, heart-warming and will keep you hooked to the final page.’ Carmen Reid

Praise for Julie Houston:

'This is a gorgeous, warm-hearted read with a cast of characters that you can't help but root for. It's a beautiful depiction of the special bond between sisters - warts and all and I can't wait to see where we go next with the Allen family.' Freya Kennedy

'Warm, funny and well written, with a page-turning plot, this book has everything! I loved it!' Katie Fforde

'Julie Houston at her best – heartfelt and hilarious' Sandy Barker

Readers love Julie Houston:

‘Julie Houston knows how to pluck the readers’ heartstrings . If ever anyone feels down, Julie’s books should be available on prescription... the perfect pick-me-up.’

‘If you are looking to indulge in a tale of Yorkshire and its fabulously feisty, independent women, then Julie’s latest offering should be your first choice. Packed with hopeless romanticism, witty banter and a satisfying ending, this is a splendid read which I heartily recommend.’

‘This was just what I needed to restart the reading bug and has left me wanting to get stuck into all of the books again, fab characters, great storylines and lots of “Will they, won’t they” situations. I buddy read this with a friend but we both ended up binge reading as you find yourself getting lost in the book and wanting to know what’s going to happen next.. I would easily recommend Julie to anyone looking for something to get them out of a book slump or just who wants a good book to get lost in!’

‘I love all of Julie Houston's novels and this one is a cracker. Great characters, a lovely setting and a very entertaining and gripping read. Highly recommended. Don't go on holiday without it!!’
