A Village Vacancy: the laugh-out-loud new book from the bestselling author of A Village Affair Julie Houston

'A Village Vacancy is a tour de force of beautiful, funny and emotional storytelling' Fay Kennan

From the bestselling author of A Village Affair comes a laugh out loud new Westenbury tale...

As the Yorkshire village of Westenbury mourns the loss of one of their own, the women can't help but contemplate who will fill the vacancy in one handsome widower's life...

Grace Stevens has decided it's time to move on without her husband. He's off gallivanting around Devon in search of a new life, and good riddance. It's time to go back to teaching, so Grace returns to Little Acorns and takes on an unruly class of pre-teens.

As she deals with disasters in – and out of – the classroom including an accidental dalliance with her most troublesome pupil's dad, helping track down a drug ring and keeping up with her closest girlfriends, Grace begins to wonder more and more about the sparkle in David's eyes and the sparking chemistry between them.

Could Grace be the one to fill this village vacancy?
