All is not as it seems * The Times, Ones to watch in 2020 * Sensitive, funny, wonderful, immensely touching * Nigella Lawson * THIS BOOK. Reader, I LOVED it. Funny & thoughtful & such brilliantly drawn characters I am genuinely bereft that my time with them is over.

Definitely worth devouring this year! What a treat * Giovanna Fletcher * This beauty of a book just took the crown as my new favourite Marian Keyes novel (and that is a HIGH bar). It's tender, hilarious, important, with characters who feel as real as your own family by the time you're done. I put it down and felt bereft * Beth O'Leary * A novel that is warm and witty but never afraid to tackle the big stuff * Elizabeth Day, Mail on Sunday * I LOVED Grown Ups so much. It's SUCH a treat. I felt like I was rolling in PURE JOY throughout. The cleverest cream cake of words * Caitlin Moran * I loved every word of Grown Ups. I will be missing those gorgeous vibrant characters for many weeks to come. There should be a word to describe the sadness and satisfaction you feel when you read the last page of a Marian Keyes novel: the ending is perfect but you still want more, more, more * Liane Moriarty * Magnificently messy lives, brilliantly untangled. Funny, tender and completely absorbing! * Graham Norton * Messy, tangled complex humans who reminded me that few of us ever really sort out our lives at all * Jojo Moyes * It is charming, funny and poignant. But also profound, heartbreaking. If you already love Marian, this is her best yet. If you haven't read her, this is the one * Nina Stibbe *
