The Vintage Guide to Love and Romance
Jessica Beam is one hot mess. She knows how to have fun but lately she's been forgetting how to turn up for work on time. Or in clean clothes. Suddenly finding herself out of a job, out of luck with her friends and thrown out of her flat, she tracks down her only family member: her grandmother, in Kensington. She hasn't heard from Matilda Beam for 15 years but hungover beggars can't be choosers. Things aren't going quite so well for Grandma, either. Her 1950s Good Woman guide books are out of print, her mortgage is staggering and her granddaughter apparently wears neon Wonderbras. It's not exactly a tearful reunion but when a publisher throws them a lifeline - a new contract if they can prove the Good Woman guides still work - Jess and Matilda have to work together if they want a roof over their heads.
