Summary

The brilliant new romcom from the best-selling author of mega-hit Last Night.

Two strangers. 

One big coincidence. 

Driving each other crazy is just the beginning....

Harriet Hatley is running away from everything.

Getting married.

Her boyfriend’s family.

Her past.

A dream house-share seems like the perfect place to hide, but her unlikely housemate Cal is no stranger to running away himself. And he's also hiding secrets of his own....

Can these two take a crazy risk, face the past and finally find a reason to stay?

Brilliant

Not what I expected!
Was such a lovely and emotional story. Be warned, it’s not all flowers and hearts though. Worth it in the end ❤️

an OK read but not her best

love Mhairis books and was excited to see a new one out! found this one a bit "meh" and definitely not her best. found Harriet irritating and not all that likeable tbh but maybe it was to do with the narrator?

Brilliant

Easy listen and lovely very relatable story. I’m an ex wedding photographer with 2 many bad ex boyfriends, who reminisced my way through this! Highly recommended

Great story. Sometimes sad but also inspirational

I really enjoyed this book. Wasn't all roses and laughs but I think tahy was the beauty of it. Another great read from Mhairi

Great Read

So glad I kept seeing this come up on my Facebook feed and decided to download it, it gave me the feels from the opening. Heartfelt and I’m sure very relatable to a lot of people (probably more than we’d care to think about) but lots of laughs throughout as well. Can’t wait for the next book.

Excellent book

Mhairi McFarlane's books keep getting better and better. The narrator was very good too.
The subject matter is probably one that many women will identify with. Three story is both moving and funny and I cried and laughed in equal measure. Highly recommend.

I enjoy Mhairi McFarlane's books but I think this is a new favourite. Enjoyable to the end

She's only gone and smashed it again!

Loved, loved, loved. Only Mhairi McFarlane can elicit a Taylor Swift range of emotions in my stone cold heart. This book is SMART and funny and deeply moving and I hate that it's going to be labelled "chick lit"!

I loved it

she's done it again, I have every one of McFarlane's books and love them all. this one felt more mature some how with the tackling of the abuse topic. but it was done sensitively. this would be an amazing film adaption too ❤️

Utterly incredible- devoured in 2 sessions!

The most moving funny unpredictable book - genius. Not overly soppy either - Mhairi has written her best book yet in my opinion. Read it and you won’t be disappointed- other than it’s over and when is the next book due!
