NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A gem of a novel.”—Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Spark of Light and Small Great Things From the author of Surprise Me comes an irresistible story of love and empowerment about a young woman with a complicated family, a handsome man who might be “the one,” and an IOU that changes everything. Fixie Farr has always lived by her father’s motto: “Family first.” And since her dad passed away, leaving his charming housewares store in the hands of his wife and children, Fixie spends all her time picking up the slack from her siblings instead of striking out on her own. The way Fixie sees it, if she doesn’t take care of her father’s legacy, who will? It’s simply not in Fixie’s nature to say no to people. So when a handsome stranger in a coffee shop asks her to watch his laptop for a moment, she not only agrees—she ends up saving it from certain disaster. To thank Fixie for her quick thinking, the computer’s owner, Sebastian, an investment manager, scribbles an IOU on a coffee sleeve and attaches his business card. Fixie laughs it off—she’d never actually claim an IOU from a stranger. Would she? But then Fixie’s childhood crush, Ryan, comes back into her life, and his lack of a profession pushes all of Fixie’s buttons. As always, she wants nothing for herself—but she’d love Seb to give Ryan a job. No sooner has Seb agreed than the tables are turned once more and a new series of IOUs between Seb and Fixie—from small favors to life-changing moments—ensues. Soon Fixie, Ms. Fixit for everyone else, is torn between her family and the life she really wants. Does she have the courage to take a stand? Will she finally grab the life, and love, she really wants? Praise for I Owe You One “This book is a shot of pure joy!”—Jenny Colgan, author of The Bookshop on the Corner “A humorous exploration of family life, finding love and the difficulties of coming into one’s own as a young professional woman . . . The entertaining cast of characters . . . will certainly remind readers why nineteen years after her first hit Kinsella remains one of the reigning queens of women’s fiction.”—The Washington Post “I Owe You One is another impossibly delightful story by Sophie Kinsella, a must-read for her die-hard fans and new readers alike.”—PopSugar

Bumbling his way through life without any real direction, knockabout Terry is the first to admit he's never achieved anything of great significance in his 44 years.

In fact his best mate reckons it's the most ludicrous scheme Terry has ever devised and only gives him a 50/1 chance of pulling it off! Terry's not concerned in the slightest, he's just got a cranky builder, a dangerous driver, English cricket fans and an 80's television star amongst others to deal with first. It's going to be a busy few weeks in December, but with the help of a few friends, Terry's going to give it a crack or go down swinging!

Throughout his life, he loved learning and would often say of his books, “These are not just books; these are my friends.” The Oads were a Hindu caste in Pakistan who were “constructors,” and as such, they were looked down upon. One of them was Rubina Oad’s late father, who she pays tribute to in this book. Unlike most of his peers, he did not accept his predetermined fate. Instead, he sought to change his circumstances and refused to accept a life of adversity. In the process, he passed the same philosophy down to his children and extended family. In recalling his life, the author shares how her father went from being the child of a poor couple that earned their wages building mud houses in a small town to a respected professional who became a Lawyer, a Judge, an Additional Commissioner of Income Tax, and a Legal Advisor. His urge to grow rich financially and socially kept growing as he grew older, propelling him to even greater success. Join the author as she celebrates an amazing individual who broke a vicious cycle through an incredible display of belief, hard work, and achievement.
In this mesmerizing debut novel, Michael Sledge creates an intimate portrait of the beloved poet Elizabeth Bishop — of her life in Brazil and her relationship with her lover, the dazzling, aristocratic Lota de Macedo Soares. Sledge artfully draws from Bishops lifelong correspondences and biography to imagine the poets intensely private world, revealing the literary genius who lived in conflict with herself both as a writer and as a woman. A seemingly idyllic existence in Soaress glass house in the jungle gives way to the truth of Bishops lifelong battle with alcoholism, as well as her eventual status as one of modernisms most prominent writers. Though connected to many of the most famous cultural and political figures of the era, Soares too is haunted by her own demons. As their secrets unfold, the sensuous landscape of Rio de Janeiro, the rhythms of the samba and the bossa nova, and the political turmoil of 1950s Brazil envelop Bishop in a world she never expected to inhabit. The More I Owe You is a vivid portrait of two brilliant women whose love for one another pushes them to accomplish enduring works of art.
