10th October 2021

We are delighted to be able to offer 3 copies of In Just One Day by Helen McGinn, set in Hampshire, with a trip to Venice.

3 copies of In Just One Day

Everything can change – In Just One Day

Flora has always adored her brother Billy. Born just eighteen months apart, their childhood was spent like two peas in a pod – no one could separate them. Now, as adults, they remain the best of friends. And as Flora is immersed in family life, Billy is always there to lend a hand.

But, in just one day, everything changes.

In just one day, Flora’s life falls apart.

In just one day, Flora has to learn how to live again.

From the nostalgia of seaside Britain to the breath-taking beauty of Venice, in tears and laughter, join Helen McGinn for this emotional, uplifting and joyful story about love in all its guises. But above all, this is an unforgettable story of one little girl and the brother she adored.

    I love South African Pinotage, a lovely fruity red. I first drank it on a trip to that country and fell in love with both the wine and the country.

    I prefer a Rosé if I have to drink wine but my favourite tipple is a cold glass of cider

    I enjoy a glass of local wine with a meal on holiday – but otherwise I tend to prefer a G&T

    Merlot is my go to red wine. It is usually reliable and goes well with most meals.

    Rosé or Red,
    I won’t feel blue.
    I’m not hungover,
    Its’s just wine flu

    Not a fan. Like an occasional champagne but I’m really a G&T girl


  18. User: spacebeagle

    Posted on: 17/10/2021 at 11:05 am

    I’m following Helen in Insta (spacebeagle45). I love wine; red for mellow evenings, rose for summer days outside and white for sharing a bottle with friends any time. And of course, Champagne all year round!

    My favourite would be a good Rioja, served with a roast.

    Love a cool glass of Rose – anytime, any place 🙂 But later inthe evening I prefer a Brandy….

    I’m not generally a fan but love the wines when we go to the wine fest in a place called Zell in Germany.

    I love Prosecco, wine with a fizz


  22. User: kazzalottie

    always red wine, but can’t drink more than a glass or it gives me a headache!


  33. User: Gul Akkaya

    Posted on: 16/10/2021 at 3:55 pm

    I am more of a prosecco person, but if it has to be the wine I’d like the Rose most or a delish sangria for Summer nights.


  34. User: Miriam Smith

    Posted on: 16/10/2021 at 3:50 pm

    I can’t handle much alcohol these days so I love a cold glass of Shloer – white grape.


  35. User: anoushka16

    Posted on: 16/10/2021 at 3:47 pm

    Nothing hits the spot quite like a cold dry white wine – delicious.


  36. User: Kathleen marsden

    Posted on: 16/10/2021 at 3:42 pm

    I love any wine but prefer a red but has to be a good one usually a Malbec


  37. User: aspella

    Posted on: 16/10/2021 at 3:40 pm

    I don’t like the taste of wine and therefore I tend to have lemonade when others are drinking alcohol.


  38. User: brcdvep

    Posted on: 16/10/2021 at 3:24 pm

    I don’t enjoy the taste of wine and usually need to eat something salty with it to take the taste away. I guzzle rather than sipping.

    But, I love the tingly tipsy feeling, and the fuzzy warmth that a couple of glasses gives me, so I always go back for more.


  39. User: becksta75

    Love a glass of pinot grigio

    Love ROSE crisp fresh and perfect to share with friends or a great read


  42. User: Thea Lett

    Posted on: 16/10/2021 at 6:03 am

    I lost my sense of smell/taste a few years ago and as a result all wine except fizz taste horrible! So now I drink Prosecco or champagne!


  43. User: eshaah1

    Posted on: 16/10/2021 at 2:52 am

    Amarone for me 🙂


  44. User: VAL4FUN

    Posted on: 15/10/2021 at 8:19 pm

    I enjoy the odd glass of Rioja, but have no head for alcohol these days so it’s only ever the one glass


  45. User: sararose

    Posted on: 15/10/2021 at 4:57 pm

    I rarely drink wine nowadays as I do not like to drink alone and I won’t drink and drive. We used to love a very dry sherry called Manzanilla and my husband usually had a glass while HE was cooking dinner! Of course I would join him while I laid the table!

    Nice glass of rosè and a good book, best way to relax.

    It’s white wine for me!


  48. User: Patricia Dewey

    Posted on: 14/10/2021 at 9:23 am

    I love a glass of wine with my dinner. My favourite is New Zealand, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. I also like Cotes de Rhone and for red, a Malbec or Rioja.


  49. User: julie tullett

    Posted on: 14/10/2021 at 8:24 am

    I never really used to drink wine, and if i did it had to be a white with lemonade. Then some one gave me a glass of white grenache. OMG! what a game changer! i love it, although some of the fruity wines like blossom hill or echo falls are an OK go to if i don’t have any grenache.


  50. User: tomskype

    Posted on: 13/10/2021 at 6:55 pm

    Love a glass of champagne when it’s on offer. Mainly drink dry white wine (Chardonnay is a favourite)!

    Posted on: 13/10/2021 at 6:29 pm

    I love Sainsbury’s white wine as I can’t have dairy and its vegan so its fantastic to finally find a wine I can enjoy


  52. User: Kay Gerken

    Posted on: 13/10/2021 at 5:06 pm

    Give the choice my favourite is red champagne!


  53. User: Yvonne@FictionBooks

    Posted on: 12/10/2021 at 5:23 pm

    Like a white wine.
    Must be dry
    Prefer Chardonnay.
    Must be well chilled.
    Enjoy Pouilly Fuisse or Pouilly Fume.
    Absolute favourite Cakebread Chardonnay

    My tastes have changed since I have aged. I used to like white wine in my 20s, then rose wine in my 30s and now red wine in my 40s. Of course you can’t beat a glass of champagne and my favourites are Bollinger R.D and Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Rose.

    I don’t drink alcohol so I don’t have a favourite wine. My favourite non-alcoholic drink is Diet Coke but I also love fruit squashes and cordials.


  59. User: philatel

    Posted on: 10/10/2021 at 9:41 pm

    Chardonnay is my favourite wine but I do like rose in the summer.


  60. User: Andrea Hedgcock

    Posted on: 10/10/2021 at 8:30 pm

    Oh, I love Blossom Hill’s white wine – they are the best. I used to buy M&S’s Cava but they no longer produce it as they said no call for it. Rather strange decision as it sold out the xmas before! Red tends to give me a headache so I’ll only have one glass with a meal. Rose, I’m yet to find a good one.


  61. User: Sara Ainsworth

    Posted on: 10/10/2021 at 8:17 pm

    Red wine is my favourite tipple all year round. Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a special treat from time to time on a Friday night for me – there is no better way to warm your cockles on a chilly autumnal evening. And of course it has been scientifically proven that red wine is good for your heart. 🙂

    Hello, I like to drink herbal teas, like green tea and berry tea. They are so nice and refreshing!

    Posted on: 10/10/2021 at 3:47 pm

    Unusually, I really don’t like wine, unless it’s a sip of Prosecco!
    My favourite tipples are lime juice soda and iced latté!
