The People Next Door: From the Number One Bestselling Author

‘Roisin Meaney is a skilful storyteller’ Sheila O’Flanagan

A warm, spell-binding tale of friendship, love and second chances from this Number One bestselling author.

Behind the brightly coloured doors of Miller’s Avenue live people with very complicated lives…

When Yvonne in number 7 joins an online dating website, she’s looking for something more than friendship but after a series of disastrous encounters, decides to shut down her account. Is she shutting out her only chance of finding love?

While next door Dan, still reeling from his wife’s desertion, signs up for a cookery course. As his lemon souffle rises, so does his interest in someone close to home …

Further along, Kathryn is struggling to keep her marriage together despite the best efforts of her interfering mother-in-law. As tension grows between the two women, Kathryn wonders if Grainne will finally succeed, as she realises that she may never give her husband Justin what he wants.

As the drama unfolds along Millers Avenue, the inhabitants learn that the things you most yearn for can often be found on your own doorstep.

Reviews

'The Last Week of May is a highly engaging and heartwarming tale populated with warm and loveable characters. Roisin Meaney's gentle storytelling is reminiscent of that of Maeve Binchy. I truly adored the book and devoured it within a few short hours.'
