From the bestselling author of One-Hit Wonder comes the irresistible tale of three brothers in search of love, meaning, and happily-ever-after.

From her bestselling debut, Ralph's Party, to her latest, One-Hit Wonder, Lisa Jewell has captivated readers and reviewers alike.

Brothers Tony, Sean, and Ned had the perfect upbringing. They adore their parents and actually look forward to coming home for Sunday lunch. But now that they're grown up, real life is starting to get in the way. Tony's dealing with divorce and a weight problem. Novelist Sean is up against a serious case of writer's block and a shock announcement from his "perfect" new girlfriend. Their parents have a new lodger, Gervase-why is Bernie, their mother, so keen to give this unsavory waif a home? And what is the real reason for kid brother Ned's surprise return from his travels in Australia? As effervescent as champagne, as addictive as chocolate, A Friend of the Family is a hilarious, dead-on-target story certain to delight Lisa Jewell's growing legion of devoted fans.
