On the same day, Lily also meets Eddie Tessler, a man fleeing fame who just might have the ability to change her world in unimaginable ways. But her childhood friend Dan has his own reasons for not wanting Lily to get too carried away by Eddie’s attentions. Before long, secrets begin to emerge and Lily’s friends and family become involved. In the beautiful Cotswold village of Stanton Langley, nothing will ever be the same again…

Jill Mansell is back with another great story, in ‘You And Me Always’ we follow the lives of best friends, Lily, Dan and his sister Patsy as the three of them deal with new relationships, new beginnings and trying to find the one.

The story is seen through the eyes of the five main characters of the story, Lily, Dan, Patsy, Declan and Coral. Five interesting people, all with different dramas and issues in their lives.

On her twentieth-fifth birthday, Lily finds out two things, the name of her mothers boyfriend and that British actor Eddie Tessler is hiding in the village. Lily never knew her biological father and was a child when her mother died, she was brought up by her mothers best friend Coral and her husband Nick. Curious about her mother’s lost love, Lily tracks down Declan and introduces him to her friends and family. Coral finds herself drawn to Declan, having spent the last number of years alone after Nick died. As Lily and Eddie become closer, Lily finds herself in the spotlight and her father makes a sudden appearance in her life, whilst her two best friends and brother and sister Dan and Patsy are trying to get their own lives in order. Patsy is longing to fine the one, but is having a disastrous time with trying to find the one, meanwhile Dan, the loveable rogue is trying to maintain his reputation of a bachelor boy but finds himself drawn to his best friend.

In Jill’s style that we have grown to love, the chapters are short and snappy and one is never enough. The stories blend wonderfully together as the characters and the plot interact. The characters are relatable and likeable characters, that made for charming reading. Lily is a boisterous and fun person, who wants to know everything about the mother she lost, whilst Coral is maternal and protective of the daughter she never had. Patsy is lovely, with her gentle nature and her quest for the one and her disastrous dates, add an element of humour to this sweet love story.

With a vibrant, blue cover, this book was fun and emotional from the very beginning’. You And Me Always’ is another lovely tale, uplifting and wonderfully romantic, this book was impossible to put down.
