The brilliant new romcom from the bestselling author of mega-hit, Last Night
One big coincidence.
Driving each other crazy is just the beginning…
Harriet Hatley is running away from everything.
Her boyfriend’s family.
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?
Entertaining & Enjoyable!
A light read with delightful characters!
Harriet is a photographer – a wedding photographer; she’s seen it all and has no inclination to find herself in a similar situation. She’s very happy living with Jon without the shackles of marriage, thank you very much. But when he ambushes her in front of his family, the time has come to call it a day. In need of immediate accommodation, she gets the heads up on a house share with Cal, and they rub along quite well together. However, Cal is also running away from something . . can they keep running or is it time to stop?
I’ve always enjoyed Mhairi McFarlane’s novels, so this was an obvious choice for my month’s break. I took to Harriet right away – she is a strong, independent woman who knows what she wants out of life. This is an entertaining tale of ups, downs and misunderstanding – and it is very enjoyable. A perfect holiday read! Beautifully written, I’m happy to recommend this one and give it 4.5*.
I purchased this novel in ebook format; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
