31 Dream Street – Lisa Jewell

I’d not even realised there was a “new” Lisa Jewell, and this has been out in paperback since April!

A rapid read, 31 Dream Street is aka Peacock House aka 31 Silversmith Road. Owned by lonely, scruffy would-be poet Toby, the rooms are occupied by waifs and strays who have responded to his philanthropic ‘To Let’ adverts over the years. Over the road lives Leah who’s boyfriend Amitabh has just decided that he can’t marry her; and so the scene is set for a satisfying dose of chicklit. There is a vast cast of characters, some likable, others less so – but as you’d expect life works well for the ones you care about in the end.
