Step into Alliott country with the fabulously funny and wonderfully heartwarming My Husband Next Door.

When Ella married the handsome, celebrated artist Sebastian Montclair at just nineteen she was madly in love. Now, those blissful years of marriage have turned into the very definition of an unconventional set-up. Separated in every way but distance, Sebastian resides in an outhouse across the lawn from Ella's ramshackle farmhouse.

With an ex-husband living under her nose and a home crowded by hostile teenaged children, gender-confused chickens - not to mention her hyper critical mother whose own marriage slips spectacularly off the rails - Ella finds comfort in the company of the very charming gardener, Ludo.

Then out of the blue Sebastian decides to move on, catching Ella horribly unawares. How much longer can she hide from what really destroyed her marriage . . . and the secret she continues to keep?

Our customer reviews

As families go, Ella seems to tick all the boxes, albeit in a comfortably middle class / boho way. She has a gorgeous, brooding ex-husband; nocturnal teenagers; a bossy but soft centred sister; a foppish father going through a late life crisis and an ice queen mother all living in close proximity to her quaintly run down farm I wasn't expecting any surprises from this set-up but there was a twist I hadn't been expecting. It was my first book by Alliott and whilst it wouldn't put me off reading more, I probably wouldn't go out of my way to look for them either. I did love the cockerals!show more
