What the publisher says:
A hilarious rom com about falling in love, falling out of love, and finding out who you really are.
Cat’s life has hit a brick wall. Since her ex ditched her without ceremony five years ago she’s quit stand-up comedy, landed in a steady but dull job, and lives in a tiny flat with roommates she knows only as The One Who Eats All My Food and The One Who Has Really Loud Sex.
So when she bumps into old friend Harvey and sparks fly, Cat is surprised – and horrified, because Harvey is her ex’s brother, and so absolutely, 100% off-limits romantically. Even if his dimples do make her insides fizz…
When she’s offered a new job abroad, Cat is tempted to accept – and leave her depressing flat and mess of a love life behind her. But will running away from her problems really solve them?
Fans of Jenny Colgan, Marian Keyes and Mhairi McFarlane will love Keris Stainton!A hilarious rom com about falling in love, falling out of love, and finding out who you really are.
What I say:
Cat has never quite got over her ex, Sam, the one who left her for a career in stand up in Australia. She is mired in a job she doesn’t want, sharing an apartment with people she can’t stand and her only respite is to spend time with her best friend and her little godson.
When Cat finds that Sam has returned to London and is still performing stand up she cannot resist going to watch his show. There she runs into his brother Harvey, the first meeting of many which Cat tries to avoid as she slowly realises she is falling for Harvey even though she is conflicted because he is her ex’s brother.
I loved this book, it was funny from the start and I found the characters likeable and relateable. The story was original and kept my interest with heart warming and funny moments. I particularly liked the character of Arnold, Cat’s godson, and the cause of some misunderstanding.
