NADIA KNOWS BEST is an unputdownable romance from the Sunday Times bestselling Jill Mansell, whose novels are must-reads for fans of Cathy Kelly and Lucy Diamond. When Nadia Kinsella meets Jay Tiernan, and the weather traps them in a remote Cotswold pub, she's tempted, of course she is. But Nadia's already met The One. She and Laurie have been together for years - they're practically childhood sweethearts and she still gets butterflies in her stomach at the sight of him. Okay, so maybe she doesn't see that much of him these days, but that's not Laurie's fault. She can't betray him. Besides, when you belong to a family like the Kinsellas - bewitchingly glamorous grandmother Miriam, feckless mother Leonie, stop-at-nothing sister Clare - well, someone has to exercise a bit of self-control, don't they? I mean, you wouldn't want to do something that you might later regret... What readers are saying about Nadia Knows Best: 'I couldn't put it down!

Using a unique spin on age-old fairy-tales, Nadia's column was a much anticipated read, a game to play, a mystery to solve. Yet, Nadia was the biggest mystery of all, her own story a few, short lines of public record. Nobody knew much about Nadia and Nadia planned on keeping it that way.Just what did Nadia know? Now, approaching her golden years, the height of her success, all Nadia wanted was to retire with grace. She was tired of the game, tired of life. With typical penuche, Nadia wrote the perfect story, laid the best plans, designed an excellent, well-executable exit plan. Yet, just when Nadia was ready to put down her pen, execute her exit plan, complete her story, life wrote in a few plot twists, a series of unpredictable events. Blind sighted, Nadia struggled to rewrite her story, to lift the veil of mystery, and to unbelievably, consider a second chance. For the first time in fifty years, Nadia does not know all.
