A laugh-out-loud romance from the author of the bestselling You Had Me at Hello. When Edie is caught in a compromising position at her colleagues’ wedding, all the blame falls on her – turns out that personal popularity in the office is not that different from your schooldays. Shamed online and ostracised by everyone she knows, Edie’s forced to take an extended sabbatical – ghostwriting an autobiography for hot new acting talent, Elliot Owen. Easy, right?
Wrong. Banished back to her home town of Nottingham, Edie is not only dealing with a man who probably hasn’t heard the word ‘no’ in a decade, but also suffering an excruciating regression to her teenage years as she moves back in with her widowed father and judgy, layabout sister.
When the world is asking who you are, it’s hard not to question yourself. Who’s that girl? Edie is ready to find out.
This was the first book I've read by Mhairi McFarlane (although there are several of her other titles in my TBR pile) but it won't be my last! McFarlane has a gift for creating lovable characters who are flawed and relatable. Even when Edie made cringe-worthy mistakes, I was still on the sidelines rooting for her. I mean, who among us is perfect? She reminded me of Bridget Jones at times. Bumbling yet well-meaning. The romance was fun, there were a few laugh-out-loud moments, and when I finished reading the book I sighed in satisfaction. If you're looking for a fun, sweet read, look no further as McFarlane definitely delivers.
