Sally Parker is struggling to find the hero inside herself.
All she wants to do is lie down.
Her husband Frank has lost his business, their home and their savings, in one fell swoop. Their bank cards are being declined. The children are running wild. And now the bailiffs are at the door.
What does an ordinary woman do when the bottom falls out?
Sally Parker is about to surprise everybody.
Most of all herself.

A big-hearted story of a family on the brink, The Best Things is a life-affirming tale of failing, falling and finding a way back up.

‘This book is everything I would have expected from the wonderful Mel Giedroyc. Funny and touching*****’

‘I could hear Mel reading this book! Terrific characters. Very entertaining *****’

‘Some very funny and clever writing. The final chapter might make your eyes leaky *****’

‘One of the best things I’ve read this year. Please read it *****’

‘I felt like Mel was reading this into my ear. A very human story. I was left with the warm fuzzys at the end****’

‘A comedy that would make a brilliant film or sitcom. The Parker family are a chaotic, loveable bunch’

‘I zipped through it with many an accompanying titter, the occasional chortle and the odd unladylike snort. A nice piece of escapism, so needed at this time ****’

‘Warm, interesting, clever and funny, as well as poignant at times. A brave heroine, a cast of strong characters and a page-turner of a story *****’

‘Glorious storytelling, this is a rich comedic feast of domesticity. Excellent characters. Kept me gripped throughout. It’s going to be a big hit *****’
