The book that started it all!
1999 – Carly Cooper is 30, single, and after coming close to saying ‘I do’ to six different men, she’s wondering if she accidentally said ‘goodbye’ to Mr Right.
So, Carly quits her job, her flat, her whole life and sets off on a quest to track down all the men she’s ever loved.
But there is a problem. Her ex-boyfriends are scattered all over the world and Carly lives in an era before the Internet and Smartphones.
Her Mr Right must be out there, but can she find him?
And what if he’s moved on from the ex-girlfriend who said goodbye?
A vintage ’90s rom-com from #1 bestselling author Shari Low.
Hysterically Funny, Unmissable Read!
I was SO late getting up this morning having read this book to the very end in bed last night, giggling like mad and trying so very hard not to laugh out loud and waken my husband!
Carly Cooper realises that she’s thirty, single, and hates her job. She set out after school to travel and worked in some wonderful locations, almost tying the knot no less than six times but never quite making it to the alter. With the new millennium creeping closer, she decides to revisit with each of them which, in the nineties, meant travelling in person due to the lack of social media, internet and mobiles. Carly decides to pack in her job, quit her flat and ramp up the credit cards by searching out each and every one the former men in her life – surely she slipped up and one of them is ‘the one’?
I love Shari Low’s novels – her sense of humour is right up my street but – to my horror – I was late in discovering her work so the new edition of her very first novel is one not to be missed! It’s no surprise that she was snapped up by a publisher. The laughs start from the very beginning and I absolutely defy anyone not to laugh at this story. Told in alternative chapters of where she went and what she did after leaving school and where she is now as the year 2000 sneaks ever closer, this is fast-paced and very exiting to read! The writing is sharp and succinct, the characterisation is absolutely superb, the humour is extremely infectious and overall it is an hysterically funny, unmissable read! Best of all, there is a follow-up novel in the pipeline catching up with all the characters from this one – I cannot wait! A brilliant, sparkling five star read and one I recommend to everyone who has the ability to laugh.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
