Join much-loved romantic fiction author Jill Mansell for an afternoon that will transport you straight to the middle of summer, to the beautiful fictional Cornish town of St. Cary’s.

Cornwall is a favourite setting of Jill Mansell and returning to St Cary’s for the third time, with It Started With a Secret, the story will unfold within a house overlooking the sea, inspired by the family home in Richard Curtis’s About Time.

Join Jill and special guests Libby Page author of The Lido and Emma Cooper author of The First Time I Saw You for an afternoon of discussion of our favourite Jill novels, past and present; the romantic novels we return to again and again; and to celebrate a brand new Jill Mansell novel to laugh, cry and fall in love with all over again.

Hope to see you soon!
