Can neighbours become more than good friends…

After her fiancé left her, Ali and her daughter Grace enjoyed living in what became known as ‘the Single Mums’ Mansion’. However, with her best friends Amanda and Jacqui moving on, it’s time for Ali and Grace to make their own way. Thankfully, a chance conversation leads to them moving into the infamous South London gated community known only as The Mews.

In The Mews everyone lives in each other’s pockets and curtain twitching is an Olympic sport. The neighbours are an eclectic bunch – from Nick the alleged spy, Carl the gorgeous but clearly troubled Idris Elba lookalike, to Debbie who is about to face the hardest fight of her life, and TV agent Samantha who is not as in control as she likes to pretend.

Each day brings another drama, but along with the tears, real friendships grow. And her neighbours’ problems might unlock the key to something Ali has yearned for all along…

Will these single mums be able to move on from life in the mansion?

Based on a true story – you’ll never be able to look at your neighbours quite the same way again … 


The Single Mums Move On is a sequel to The Single Mums’ Mansion and is a book full of engaging characters and an effortless, engaging storyline.  If you can read The Single Mums’ Mansion first you totally should but this book reads perfectly as a standalone also.

The characters are so well described throughout the book that I started to recognise one or two personalities from my own life – past and present.  I think that will be a common thing from readers and, for me, it just added to the reading experience and made the laughs even better and the romance even sweeter.

If you manage to get a quiet afternoon to yourself this summer by the pool, or out in the back garden in the sun, this book will make a perfect companion.  It’s not too taxing and there are lots of laughs, love and even some secrets!
