The deliciously uplifting new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of THIS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING and MEET ME AT BEACHCOMBER BAY. Not to be missed by readers of Lucy Diamond and Katie Fforde.

Mimi isn't looking for love when she spends a weekend in Goosebrook, the Cotswolds village her dad has moved to. And her first encounter with Cal, who lives there too, is nothing like a scene in a romantic movie - although she can't help noticing how charismatic he is. But Cal's in no position to be any more than a friend, and Mimi heads back to her busy London life.

When they meet again four years later, it's still not to be. Cal is focusing on his family, and Mimi on her career. Then Cal dives into a potentially perfect new romance whilst Mimi's busy fixing other people's relationships.

It seems as if something, or someone else, always gets in their way. Will it ever be the right time for both of them?

About Jill Mansell

Maybe This Time is the thirtieth fabulous, feel-good novel from Jill Mansell, whose books have sold over 11 million copies around the world.

Jill lives with her family in Bristol, and is now a full-time writer, having previously worked in the field of Clinical Neurophysiology.

Her hobbies include buying stationery, particularly magical new colours of ink for the fountain pen she uses to write all her books. (And if 'magical' sounds far-fetched, go on, just take a look at internet images for Emerald of Chivor, Jill's favourite.)

Her other hobbies include people-watching and finding new characters to put in her novels. So when you're out, make sure to always be on your best behaviour. And beware beady-eyed authors carrying notebooks...
