My Thoughts 

I absolutely loved this! 

Harriet is my kind of book heroine, she’s real, she’s been through shit and of course it’s affected her. I loved her character’s growth throughout the progression of this novel. 

I’ve picked up a couple of Mhairi McFairlane’s books previously but life… and as a result, well, this was my first actually-read book of hers (I’m going to be changing that very very very soon). 

Laugh out loud funny, set right next to some blisteringly painful memories of my own Scott, this was such a fantastic story, I can’t recommend it enough.

"[She] writes with a singular wit, charm, and emotional complexity, every word just right, every page brimming with delicious tension." — Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author of People We Meet on Vacation

International bestseller Mhairi McFarlane delivers a sharp, emotional new novel about a woman who calls off her engagement to "the perfect man" and moves in with a charming stranger who makes her question everything about her life, her past, and the secrets she's kept for far too long...

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 humor and gentle advice, is a surprising source of calm at the center 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...
