Full of the humour that Mhairi McFarlane is so well known for, this book is a flawless romantic comedy that navigates the highs and lows of relationships. There’s a surprising amount of chapters that many of us will relate to within the pages of this book too – and wonderful lessons to be learnt through the unflappable character of Harriet.

This book is emotional, no doubt about it (especially the last few pages Mhairi McFarlane! You had me on edge there!) but it’s sharp at the same time. There’s no nonsense, just good, heart-warming and uplifting reading.

I would go so far as to say that Mhairi has outdone herself. There, I said it. This is quite possibly her best publication so far, and they’re all pretty fantastic!

About the Book…

Harriet Hatley is the most in-demand wedding photographer in town, but she doesn’t believe in romance, loathes the idea of marriage, and thinks chocolate fountains are an abomination. Which is why, when her long-time partner proposes, she panics. Suddenly Harriet is single… and living down the hall from her ex. She needs a new apartment, like, yesterday.

Enter Cal Clarke, a hopeless romantic who just experienced his own wedding-related disaster. Harriet and Cal are like chalk and cheese, but as they go from strangers to roommates to friends, it becomes clear they’re both running from something. When Harriet’s most heavily guarded secret comes to light, her world implodes. And Cal, with his witty humour and gentle advice, is a surprising source of calm at the centre of the storm.

With her career, friendships, and reputation on the line, Harriet must finally face her past in order to take control of her future. Because if she’s willing to stop playing it safe and risk everything to share her truth, real love and happiness may be waiting on the other side…
