About the author
Before becoming a writer, Jane Wolstonholm (Costello is a pseudonym coined by her agent) worked as an editor for the Liverpool Echo and Daily Mail newspapers. At the age of 28, she was appointed editor-in-chief of the Liverpool Daily Post, making her the youngest woman to hold the position at a major UK daily.
While on maternity leave with her first child, Jane decides the time has come to realize her dream of writing a book. She achieved success already with her first novel - "Bridesmaids", which entered the bestseller charts in Great Britain and was nominated for several awards. The idea for the plot came to her at the wedding ceremony of one of her friends. Then she realized that weddings provide rich material for stories about love and friendship. Bridesmaids is a funny, engaging, beautifully written story about four weddings, three ex-boyfriends, two dangerous secrets and one great man.
Jane Costello's next novel, Almost Married, achieved even higher sales, and for it, the author won the prestigious prize "Best Romantic Comedy" in 2010, awarded to her by the Association of Romance Writers. She received the award at the Association's 50th anniversary ceremony. The young writer is very proud of this award, because the winner is broadcast after a vote conducted not only among readers, but also among the most prominent writers of women's literature.
Jane Costello's third novel, My Unmarried Friend, has entered the UK's top ten best-selling books a few months after its release.
Though still a young writer, Jane Costello is about to join the ranks of the big names in the genre of women's fiction. The agency, which represents authors such as Lee Child and Michael Connelly, has been very serious about pushing Jane Costello's novels into the book market. The rights to them have been sold in fifteen countries. The author has signed a contract for one title a year, and one of her novels is already under option at a major film studio.
With each successive title, Jane Costello gains new loyal fans who define her novels as a combination of the style and wit of Sophie Kinsella and the romance of Cecilia Ahern.

Her best friend Jess encourages her to join a jogging club to get in shape. Attractive instructor Oliver is an added incentive for Abby, whose personal life is a complete bore.

Torn between her feelings for her instructor, handsome sprinter Tom, and her newfound joy in running, Abby struggles to get back in shape.
