Summary

'Hugely relatable!' Heat

Fans of Alexandra Potter, Marian Keyes and Caroline James will love Divorced Not Dead, a no-holds-barred, heartfelt and laugh-out-loud hilarious romcom about being fifty, but absolutely not yet dead yet!

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––-

We’re going to need a bigger drink…

Meet Frankie: fifty, divorced and getting back on the horse.

After leaving Twatface – her husband of twenty years – she's starting again from scratch. And when her son also flees the nest for university, Frankie decides it’s time to throw herself back into the dating game with a vengeance.

On best friend Bel's recommendation, Frankie signs up to two dating apps: one for love, another for casual hook-ups (because why the f**k not?!).

However, as she navigates this new frontier of catfishing, kittenfishing, ghosts, GILFs and everything in between, she realises the whole dating thing has changed quite a bit – and it really is a bloody jungle out there…

Will Frankie find love on the apps? Or the perfect shag?

Or – if there’s any justice in the world – both?

Decent story but annoying narrator

Quite enjoyed the book and the story but the narrator was really annoying so found myself not really liking the main character because of it.

Flippin’ loved it!

Funny, charming, sweary, smart, endearing, though-provoking… and that’s just the central charachter!
This book is an absolute joy to read and I barrelled through it. I love the lightness of tone and the richness of the characters and the descriptions and the insights and the insults and the cultural references and… When is the next one out?

Relevant, Realistic, hilarious

Frankie is fifty, feisty and fed-up. With a failed marriage to, "Tw** Face", tucked under the belt of her dungarees, and her adored son in his first term at Uni, Frankie moves out of the family home into the tiny flat above her new business, a quilting shop in Lincoln. Her bestie, Bel, encourages her, over an experimental spliff, to plunge into the weird and dodgy world of internet dating. Whilst navigating these shark, or catfish, infested waters, Frankie, sets up a quilting group, and when a guy named Stefan joins....


This debut RomCom is, I hope, the first of many from Harper Ford. Also, Leslie Sharp's narration is excellent.

Loved it!

Everything you’d expect from a ‘chick-lit’; funny, girly and full of fun but with extra depths, sharing important messages about relationships and wise insights into love and life. I binge listened in the car, walking the dog and while unpacking the shopping.

Anyone newly single and entering the shark infested world of on-line dating - a must read!

Pros - Laughed out loud at the descriptions of on-line dating and disastrous dates! All relatable and some good advice I wish I’d been privy to as a ‘green’ 50 yr old when I re-entered the dating world! Great characters and some Austen-esque moments in there. Many believable moments - the swearing, ex issues and wine being some!
Cons - became a little ‘scripted’ with all the characters fitting a profile (pansexual, asexual etc) and can see how it worked for the story, but felt a bit forced and predictable at times.

An entertaining listen - well worth the listen especially if newly single!
