‘Sprinkled with humour and warmth’ Cathy Bramley
‘Hilariously funny . . . an utterly fabulous book’ Heat
‘Feisty, fun and fierce!’ Ali McNamara

Lisa’s new book – My Sisters And Me – is available to pre-order NOW

Elle and Laurie are the last ones standing: they’re single, they’re not having babies any time soon and their weekends aren’t filled with joyful meetings about mortgages. For Elle, this is fine. She likes her independent life, but Laurie wants love and she wants it now.

So when Laurie begs Elle to come with her on a singles holiday to a beautiful vineyard in Tuscany, Elle is reluctant. She has no intention of swapping her perfectly lovely life for someone else’s idea of her Mr Perfect, but ten days under the Italian sun with her best friend and lashings of wine?

How bad could that be?

You Had Me At Merlot is full of sultry summer nights, laugh-out-loud moments, and the odd glass of wine.

Praise for Lisa Dickenson
