Emily Griffin, Senior Commissioning Editor, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights, including Canada and said of the acquisition: "From the moment Jo joined the Headline list we knew we had someone very special on our hands. Each of her books guarantees the perfect armchair escape, whether to the vineyards of France or the mountains of Crete, and a gorgeous story bubbling with Jo’s trademark magic and humour. She is a star in the making and we couldn’t be more excited for her future."
Jo Thomas said: "I am delighted to be signing with Headline for another three books. They have done a fantastic job of turning the worlds in my head into novels for others to enjoy and I cannot wait to share more funny, sunny, foodie stories with my readers."
The first title in the new deal will publish in 2018 in export trade paperback, ebook and paperback formats and will be set in the cherry orchards of Andalucía.
