About the book:
Always On My Mind
Sometimes when you can’t see the way forwards, the best thing to do is to look back…
When Jessie left home at eighteen, she swore she’d never go back. But when life takes a turn for the
complicated, she’s forced to move in with her twin, Isaac, and his two best friends. To her dismay,
one of these is Elliot, the boy Jessie once loved, until his life was changed forever by a terrible
accident that Jessie still blames herself for.
Cohabiting with three alarmingly unhouse-trained males was not in Jessie’s life plan so when Isaac,
Elliot and Arthur offer her a generous rent discount if she’ll help them with their ‘Boys to Men
Project’, designed to end years of disastrous dating, she reluctantly accepts the challenge.
As Jessie embraces the comfort of being home, revelling in her new job at her parents’ day centre
full of people determined to grow old disgracefully, she realises her housemates aren’t the only ones
needing to make some changes. And maybe, if she can finally forgive herself for Elliot’s accident, she
can start to look forward to a future, with or without him by her side.

Always On My Mind by Beth Moran is a lovely, warm feel good read that is pure escapism at its very best.
When Jessie left home at 18 she swore she would never go back, but then life takes an unexpected turn and she is suddenly in need of somewhere to stay. Something awful happened on the night of her prom that she’s never forgiven herself for, but now she finds herself back home and having to share a house with her twin brother and his best friends.
To her dismay one of these is Elliot, the boy Jessie had loved until a terrible accident had changed not only the course of his life but of Jessie’s, too. But now she’s back and, in return for a reduced rent, reluctantly agrees to help Isaac, Arthur and Elliot with the ‘Boys to Men Project’ challenge, in the hope that it will break the disastrous dating cycle the three single men have found themselves on in recent years.
As Jessie settles back into home life, she begins to enjoy her new job working at her parents day centre, which is full of people who are determined to grow old disgracefully and call themselves ‘The Outlaws’. But before too long she begins to realise that maybe it isn’t only her housemates who need to make changes and that maybe, just maybe, she can finally forgive herself for what happened to Elliot all those years ago….
There is a warmth to Beth Moran’s writing that made me fall in love with this story from the outset. Always On My Mind is a heartwarming tale of love, friendship, forgiveness and new beginnings that stole my heart, leaving me with a warm, happy glow as I turned the final page.
Beth Moran has written a charming, feel good story that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Just lovely!
