THE WARM, LIFE-AFFIRMING SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER FROM THE MUCH-LOVED MEL GIEDROYC


'A real treat. I enjoyed it HUGELY' MARIAN KEYES
'The Best Things is funny and fresh, and zips along nicely. No soggy bottoms here' CLARE MACKINTOSH
'I enjoyed it so, so much - a brilliant cast of characters and properly funny!' GRAHAM NORTON
'This book is a riot! Delicious in its detail. Had me wincing and laughing all the way along' SOPHIE KINSELLA
'Wonderfully warm and uplifting, full of unforgettable characters and so much heart' RICHARD ROPER
'Exactly like Mel herself: engaging, uproarious and gleeful. A stonking good read' JO BRAND
'A warm contemporary fable bursting with colourful characters and comic energy' DAILY MAIL
'A warm, honest and humorous look at a family and what really matters in life. Brimming with hilarious scenes and one-liners, it is also a redemptive book, and one of hope' WOMAN & HOME

Sally Parker had a morbid fear of big social events and it was for this reason that she was crouching down low in the shoe section of her wardrobe...

Sally Parker is struggling to find the hero inside herself.
All she wants to do is lie down.
Her husband Frank has lost his business, their home and their savings, in one fell swoop. Their bank cards are being declined. The children have gone feral. And now the bailiffs are at the door.
What does an ordinary woman do when the bottom falls out?
Sally Parker is about to surprise everybody.
Most of all herself.

A big-hearted story of a family on the brink, The Best Things is a life-affirming tale of failing, falling and finding a way back up.

REAL READERS LOVE THE BEST THINGS...

'This book is everything I would have expected from the wonderful Mel Giedroyc. Funny and touching*****'

'I could hear Mel reading this book! Terrific characters. Very entertaining *****'

'Some very funny and clever writing. The final chapter might make your eyes leaky *****'

'One of the best things I've read this year. Please read it *****'

'I felt like Mel was reading this into my ear. A very human story. I was left with the warm fuzzys at the end****'

'A comedy that would make a brilliant film or sitcom. The Parker family are a chaotic, loveable bunch'

'I zipped through it with many an accompanying titter, the occasional chortle and the odd unladylike snort. A nice piece of escapism, so needed at this time ****'

'Warm, interesting, clever and funny, as well as poignant at times. A brave heroine, a cast of strong characters and a page-turner of a story *****'

'Glorious storytelling, this is a rich comedic feast of domesticity. Excellent characters. Kept me gripped throughout. It's going to be a big hit *****'
